1 Kaf Ha Ya Ain Suad.
2 A mention of the mercy of your Lord to His servant Zakariya.
3 When he called upon his Lord in a low voice,
4 He said: My Lord! surely my bones are weakened and my head flares
hoariness, and, my Lord! I have never been unsuccessful in my prayer
5 And surely I fear my cousins after me, and my wife is barren,
therefore grant me from Thyself an heir,
6 Who should inherit me and inherit from the children of Yaqoub,
make him, my Lord, one in whom Thou art well pleased.
7 O Zakariya! surely We give you good news of a boy whose name
Yahya: We have not made before anyone his equal.
8 He said: O my Lord! when shall I have a son, and my wife is barren,
and I myself have reached indeed the extreme degree of old age?
9 He said: So shall it be, your Lord says: It is easy to Me, and
I created you before, when you were nothing.
10 He said: My Lord! give me a sign. He said: Your sign is that
not be able to speak to the people three nights while in sound health.
11 So he went forth to his people from his place of worship, then
made known to them that they should glorify (Allah) morning and
12 O Yahya! take hold of the Book with strength, and We granted
wisdom while yet a child
13 And tenderness from Us and purity, and he was one who guarded
14 And dutiful to his parents, and he was not insolent, disobedient.
15 And peace on him on the day he was born, and on the day he dies,
on the day he is raised to life
16 And mention Marium in the Book when she drew aside from her
an eastern place;
17 So she took a veil (to screen herself) from them; then We sent
Our spirit, and there appeared to her a well-made man.
18 She said: Surely I fly for refuge from you to the Beneficent
you are one guarding (against evil).
19 He said: I am only a messenger of your Lord: That I will give
20 She said: When shall I have a boy and no mortal has yet touched
nor have I been unchaste?
21 He said: Even so; your Lord says: It is easy to Me: and that
make him a sign to men and a mercy from Us, and it is a matter which
22 So she conceived him; then withdrew herself with him to a remote
23 And the throes (of childbirth) compelled her to betake herself
trunk of a palm tree. She said: Oh, would that I had died before
and had been a thing quite forgotten!
24 Then (the child) called out to her from beneath her: Grieve
surely your Lord has made a stream to flow beneath you;
25 And shake towards you the trunk of the palmtree, it will drop
fresh ripe dates:
26 So eat and drink and refresh the eye. Then if you see any mortal,
say: Surely I have vowed a fast to the Beneficent God, so I shall
speak to any man today.
27 And she came to her people with him, carrying him (with her).
said: O Marium! surely you have done a strange thing.
28 O sister of Haroun! your father was not a bad man, nor, was
mother an unchaste woman.
29 But she pointed to him. They said: How should we speak to one
a child in the cradle?
30 He said: Surely I am a servant of Allah; He has given me the
made me a prophet;
31 And He has made me blessed wherever I may be, and He has enjoined
me prayer and poor-rate so long as I live;
32 And dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me insolent, unblessed;
33 And peace on me on the day I was born, and on the day I die,
the day I am raised to life.
34 Such is Isa, son of Marium; (this is) the saying of truth about
35 It beseems not Allah that He should take to Himself a ! son,
be Him; when He has decreed a matter He only says to it "Be,"
and it is.
36 And surely Allah is my Lord and your Lord, therefore serve Him;
is the right path.
37 But parties from among them disagreed with each other, so woe
those who disbelieve, because of presence on a great
38 How clearly shall they hear and how clearly shall they see on
when they come to Us; but the unjust this day are in manifest error.
39 And warn them of the day of intense regret, when the matter
have been decided; and they are (now) in negligence and they do
40 Surely We inherit the earth and all those who are on it, and
they shall be returned.
41 And mention Ibrahim in the Book; surely he was a truthful man,
42 When he said to his father; O my father! why do you worship
neither hears nor sees, nor does it avail you in the least:
43 O my father! truly the knowledge has come to me which has not
you, therefore follow me, I will guide you on a right path:
44 O my father! serve not the Shaitan, surely the Shaitan is disobedient
to the Beneficent God:
45 O my father! surely I fear that a punishment from the Beneficent
should afflict you so that you should be a friend of the Shaitan.
46 He said: Do you dislike my gods, O Ibrahim? If you do not desist
will certainly revile you, and leave me for a time.
47 He said: Peace be on you, I will pray to my Lord to forgive
surely He is ever Affectionate to me:
48 And I will withdraw from you and what you call on besides Allah,
I will call upon my Lord; may be I shall not remain unblessed in
upon my Lord.
49 So when he withdrew from them and what they worshipped besides
We gave to him Ishaq and Yaqoub, and each one of them We made a
50 And We granted to them of Our mercy, and We left (behind them)
truthful mention of eminence for them.
51 And mention Musa in the Book; surely he was one purified, and
an apostle, a prophet.
52 And We called to him from the blessed side of the mountain,
made him draw nigh, holding communion (with Us).
53 And We gave to him out of Our mercy his brother Haroun a prophet.
54 And mention Ismail in the Book; surely he was truthful in (his)
promise, and he was an apostle, a prophet.
55 And he enjoined on his family prayer and almsgiving, and was
whom his Lord was well pleased.
56 And mention Idris in the Book; surely he was a truthful man,
57 And We raised him high in Heaven.
58 These are they on whom Allah bestowed favors, from among the
of the seed of Adam, and of those whom We carried with Nuh, and
seed of Ibrahim and Israel, and of those whom We guided and chose;
the communications of the Beneficent God were recited to them, they
down making obeisance and weeping.
59 But there came after them an evil generation, who neglected
and followed and sensual desires, so they win meet perdition,
60 Except such as repent and believe and do good, these shall enter
garden, and they shall not be dealt with unjustly in any way:
61 The gardens of perpetuity which the Beneficent God has promised
His servants while unseen; surely His promise shall come to pass.
62 They shall not hear therein any vain discourse, but only: Peace,
they shall have their sustenance therein morning and evening.
63 This is the garden which We cause those of Our servants to inherit
who guard (against evil).
64 And we do not descend but by the command of your Lord; to Him
whatever is before us and whatever is behind us and whatever is
these, and your Lord is not forgetful.
65 The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them,
serve Him and be patient in His service. Do you know any one equal
66 And says man: What! when I am dead shall I truly be brought
67 Does not man remember that We created him before, when he was
68 So by your Lord! We will most certainly gather them together
Shaitans, then shall We certainly cause them to be present round
69 Then We will most certainly draw forth from every sect of them
who is most exorbitantly rebellious against the Beneficent God.
70 Again We do certainly know best those who deserve most to be
71 And there is not one of you but shall come to it; this is an
unavoidable decree of your Lord.
72 And We will deliver those who guarded (against evil), and We
leave the unjust therein on their knees.
73 And when Our clear communications are recited to them, those
disbelieve say to those who believe: Which of the two parties is
abiding and best in assembly?
74 And how many of the generations have We destroyed before them
were better in respect of goods and outward appearance!
75 Say: As for him who remains in error, the Beneficent God will
prolong his length of days, until they see what they were threatened
with, either the punishment or the hour; then they shall know who
more evil plight and weaker in forces
76 And Allah increases in guidance those who go aright; and ever-abiding
good works are with your Lord best in recompense and best in yielding
77 Have you, then, seen him who disbelieves in Our communications
says: I shall certainly be given wealth and children?
78 Has he gained knowledge of the unseen, or made a covenant with
79 By no means! We write down what he says, and We will lengthen
the length of the chastisement
80 And We will inherit of him what he says, and he shall come to
81 And they have taken gods besides Allah, that they should be
to them a
source of strength;
82 By no means! They shall soon deny their worshipping them, and
shall be adversaries to them.
83 Do you not see that We have sent the Shaitans against the
unbelievers, inciting them by incitement?
84 Therefore be not in haste against them, We only number out to
number (of days).
85 The day on which We will gather those who guard (against evil)
Beneficent God to receive honors
86 And We will drive the guilty to hell thirsty
87 They shall not control intercession, save he who has made a
with the Beneficent God.
88 And they say: The Beneficent God has taken (to Himself) a son.
89 Certainly you have made an abominable assertion
90 The heavens may almost be rent thereat, and the earth cleave
and the mountains fall down in pieces,
91 That they ascribe a son to the Beneficent God.
92 And it is not worthy of the Beneficent God that He should take
Himself) a son.
93 There is no one in the heavens and the earth but will come to
Beneficent God as a servant.
94 Certainly He has a comprehensive knowledge of them and He has
numbered them a (comprehensive) numbering.
95 And every one of them will come to Him on the day of resurrection
96 Surely (as for) those who believe and do good deeds for t them
Allah bring about love.
97 So We have only made it easy in your tongue that you may give
news thereby to those who guard (against evil) and warn thereby
vehemently contentious people.
98 And how many a generation have We destroyed before them! Do
any one of them or hear a sound of them?
