In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Kaf. Ha. Ya. A'in. Sad. (1) This is an account of the mercy of your Lord to His servant Zechariah (2) when he called upon his Lord secretly (3) and said, "My Lord, my bones have become feeble and my hair has turned white with age. Yet I have never been deprived in receiving from You the answer to my prayers. (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) “He being my successor and the heir of the Descendants of Yaqub (Jacob); and my Lord, make him a cherished* one.” (* Make him a Prophet among the Descendants of Israel.) (6) [Thereupon the angels called out unto him: "O Zachariah! We bring thee the glad tiding of [the birth of] a son whose name shall be John. [And God says,] "Never have We given this name to anyone before him." (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: "So (it will be) thy Lord saith, 'that is easy for Me: I did indeed create thee before, when thou hadst been nothing!'" (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) Then he came forth unto his people from the sanctuary, and signified to them: Glorify your Lord at break of day and fall of night. (11) To John We said, "Hold fast the Book," and while he was still a child, We bestowed upon him wisdom, (12) And affection from Us and purity, and he was fearing of Allah (13) and cherishing his parents, not arrogant, rebellious. (14) Peace on him the day he was born, and the day he dieth and the day he shall be raised alive! (15)
