In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
KaafHaYa'aeenSaad. (1) (This is) a recital of the Mercy of thy Lord to His servant Zakariya. (2) When he called out to his Sustainer in the secrecy of his heart, (3) "Lord, my bones have weakened and my head has turned hoary with age, but never, Lord, have I been disappointed in my prayer to you: (4) now I fear my kinsmen when I am gone. [I have no hope of their continuing my mission] for my wife is barren, so grant me a successor from Yourself, (5) "(One that) will (truly) represent me, and represent the posterity of Jacob; and make him, O my Lord! one with whom Thou art well-pleased!" (6) 'O Zachariah, We give thee good tidings of a boy, whose name is John. No namesake have We given him aforetime.' (7) He said: "My Lord! How can I have a boy when my wife is barren and I have reached an extremely old age?" (8) He said, "It will be so! Your Lord says, 'It is easy for Me for I created you when you were nothing before.'" (9) [Zachariah] prayed: "O my Sustainer! Appoint a sign for me!" Said [the angel]: "Thy sign shall be that for full three nights [and days] thou wilt not speak unto men". (10) So Zakariya came out to his people from him chamber: He told them by signs to celebrate Allah's praises in the morning and in the evening. (11) We commanded John, Zachariah's son, to follow the guidance of the Lord with due steadfastness. We gave knowledge and wisdom to John during his childhood. (12) as well as, by Our grace, [the gift of] compassion and purity; and he was [always] conscious of Us (13) And dutiful to his parents, and he was not a disobedient tyrant. (14) So peace on him the day he was born, the day he will die, and the day that he will be raised from the dead. (15)
