Sahih InternationalKaf, Ha, Ya, 'Ayn, Sad.
Sahih International[This is] a mention of the mercy of your Lord to His servant Zechariah
Sahih InternationalWhen he called to his Lord a private supplication.
Sahih InternationalHe said, "My Lord, indeed my bones have weakened, and my head has filled with white, and never have I been in my supplication to You, my Lord, unhappy.
Sahih InternationalAnd indeed, I fear the successors after me, and my wife has been barren, so give me from Yourself an heir
Sahih InternationalWho will inherit me and inherit from the family of Jacob. And make him, my Lord, pleasing [to You]."
Sahih International[He was told], "O Zechariah, indeed We give you good tidings of a boy whose name will be John. We have not assigned to any before [this] name."
Sahih InternationalHe said, "My Lord, how will I have a boy when my wife has been barren and I have reached extreme old age?"
Sahih International[An angel] said, "Thus [it will be]; your Lord says, 'It is easy for Me, for I created you before, while you were nothing.' "
Sahih International[Zechariah] said, "My Lord, make for me a sign." He said, "Your sign is that you will not speak to the people for three nights, [being] sound."
