In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Kaf-Ha-Ya-'Ain-Sad. (1) (This is) a recital of the Mercy of thy Lord to His servant Zakariya. (2) When he called to his Lord a private supplication. (3) And said: "O my Lord, my bones decay, my head is white and hoary, yet in calling You, O Lord, I have never been deprived. (4) And indeed, I fear the successors after me, and my wife has been barren, so give me from Yourself an heir (5) Who will inherit me and inherit from the family of Jacob. And make him, my Lord, pleasing [to You]." (6) "Zachariah, We bring you good news of a son whose name shall be John. We have not given such a name to anyone before." (7) He submitted, “My Lord how can I have a son whereas my wife is barren and I have reached infirmity due to old age?” (8) He said: "So (it will be) thy Lord saith, 'that is easy for Me: I did indeed create thee before, when thou hadst been nothing!'" (9) [Zakariya (Zachariah)] said: "My Lord! Appoint for me a sign." He said: "Your sign is that you shall not speak unto mankind for three nights, though having no bodily defect." (10) Zachariah came out to his people from place of worship and inspired them to glorify the Lord both in the morning and evening. (11) 'O John, take the Book forcefully'; and We gave him judgment, yet a little child, (12) And piety (for all creatures) as from Us, and purity: He was devout, (13) and cherishing his parents, not arrogant, rebellious. (14) And peace be upon him the day he was born and the day he dies and the day he is raised alive. (15)
