١

Kãf-Ha-Ya-’Aĩn- Ṣãd.
٢
˹This is˺ a reminder of your Lord’s mercy to His servant Zachariah,
٣
when he cried out to his Lord privately,
٤
saying, “My Lord! Surely my bones have become brittle, and grey hair has spread across my head, but I have never been disappointed in my prayer to You, my Lord!
٥
And I am concerned about ˹the faith of˺ my relatives after me, since my wife is barren. So grant me, by Your grace, an heir,
٦
who will inherit ˹prophethood˺ from me and the family of Jacob, and make him, O  Lord, pleasing ˹to You˺!”
٧
˹The angels announced,˺ “O Zachariah! Indeed, We give you the good news of ˹the birth of˺ a son, whose name will be John—a name We have not given to anyone before.”
٨
He wondered, “My Lord! How can I have a son when my wife is barren, and I have become extremely old?”
٩
An angel replied, “So will it be! Your Lord says, ‘It is easy for Me, just as I created you before, when you were nothing!’”
١٠
Zachariah said, “My Lord! Grant me a sign.” He responded, “Your sign is that you will not ˹be able to˺ speak to people for three nights, despite being healthy.”
١١
So he came out to his people from the sanctuary, signalling to them to glorify ˹Allah˺ morning and evening.
