In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Kaf-Ha-Ya-'Ain-Sad. (1) This is an account of the mercy of your Lord to His servant Zechariah (2) when he called upon his Lord in secret, (3) Saying: "My Lord! Indeed my bones have grown feeble, and grey hair has spread on my head, And I have never been unblest in my invocation to You, O my Lord! (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 might be my heir and the heir of the house of Jacob; and make him, Lord, one that will be 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 said, 'O my Lord, how shall I have a son, seeing my wife is barren, and I have attained to the declining of 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) He said: my Lord appoint for me a sign. Allah said: thy sign is that thou shalt not speak unto mankind for three nights, while sound. (10) Thereupon he came out of the sanctuary unto his people and signified to them [by gestures]: "Extol His limitless glory by day and by night!" (11) O Yahya! take hold of the Book with strength, and We granted him wisdom while yet a child (12) and tenderness from Us and purity, and he was cautious; (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 that he dies and the day that he will be raised up to life (again)! (15)
