In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most 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) saying: 'O my Lord, my bones are enfeebled, and my head glows silver with age. Yet, never Lord, have I been unblessed in prayer to You. (4) I fear evil from my kinsmen after I am gone; and my wife is barren, so grant me an heir out of Your special grace, (5) who will be my heir as well as an heir [to the dignity] of the House of Jacob; and make him, O my Sustainer, well-pleasing to Thee!" (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) "My Lord!" [said Zachariah], "How shall I have a son when my wife is barren and I have reached such extreme old age?" (8) He said: "So (it will be). Your Lord says; It is easy for Me. Certainly I have created you before, when you had been nothing!" (9) He said: My Lord! Appoint for me some token. He said: Thy token is that thou, with no bodily defect, shalt not speak unto mankind three nights. (10) Then he came out to his people from Al-Mihrab (a praying place or a private room, etc.), he told them by signs to glorify Allah's Praises in the morning and in the afternoon. (11) (And it was said unto his son): O John! Hold fast the Scripture. And we gave him wisdom when a child, (12) We gave him compassion and purity. He was a pious human being, (13) and cherishing his parents, not arrogant, rebellious. (14) So Peace on him the day he was born, the day that he dies, and the day that he will be raised up to life (again)! (15)
