Kaf Ha Ya Ain Sad (1) The mention of thy Lord's mercy unto His servant Zachariah; (2) When he called to his Lord a private supplication. (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) to be my heir and to be the heir [of the blessings] of the House of Jacob; and make him, O my Lord, acceptable 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) [Zachariah] exclaimed: "O my Sustainer! How can I have a son when my wife has always been barren and I have become utterly infirm through 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) 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) (We said:) "O John, hold fast to the Book;" and We gave him wisdom right from boyhood, (12) And affection from Us and purity, and he was fearing of Allah (13) and cherishing to his parents. Never was he insolent or 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)
