19:1  Kaf, Ha Ya, 'Ain, Sa
19:2  This is a narration of your Lord‘s mercy to His servant Zakariyya
19:3  When he called his Lord in a low voice
19:4  He said, .My Lord, I am in a state that bones in my body have turned feeble, and the head has flared up grey with old age, and I never remained, My Lord, unanswered in my prayer to You
19:5  I fear (my) kinsmen after me, and my wife is barren, so bless me with an heir, from Your own side
19:6  who inherits me and inherits the house of Ya‘qub. And make him, My Lord, a favourite one
19:7  (Allah said) .O Zakariyya, We give you the good news of a boy whose name is YaHya. We did not create any one before him of the same name
19:8  He Said, .My Lord, how shall there be a boy for me while my wife is barren, and I have reached the extreme of old age?
19:9  He said, .So it is; your Lord said ‘it is easy for Me, and I did create you before, when you were nothing.‘
19:10  He said, .My Lord, make for me a sign. He said, .Your sign is that you will not (be able to) speak to the people for three (consecutive) nights, even though you will be sound in health
19:11  Then he came out to his people from the place of prayer, and directed them by gestures to proclaim the purity of Allah at morning and evening
19:12  (When the child was born, Allah said to him,) .O YaHya, hold on to the Book firmly. And We gave him wisdom, while he was still a child
19:13  and (blessed him with) love from our own, and purity; and he was God-fearing
19:14  and he was good to his parents; and he was not oppressive (or) disobedient
19:15  Peace on him the day he was born, the day he dies and the day he will be raised alive
19:16  And mention in the Book (the story of) Maryam, when she secluded herself from her people to a place towards East
19:17  then she used a barrier to hide herself from them. Then, We sent to her Our Spirit, (Jibra‘il) and he took before her the form of a perfect human being
19:18  She said, .I seek refuge with the All-Merciful (Allah) against you, if you are God-fearing
19:19  He said, .I am but a message-bearer of your Lord (sent) to give you a boy, purified
19:20  She said, .How shall I have a boy while no human has ever touched me, nor have I ever been unchaste?
19:21  He said, .So it is; your Lord said, ‘It is easy for Me, and (We will do this) so that We make it a sign for people and a mercy from Us, and this is a matter already destined.‘
19:22  So she conceived him, and went in seclusion with him to a remote place
19:23  Then the labour pains brought her to the trunk of a palm-tree. She said .O that I would have died before this, and would have been something gone, forgotten
19:24  Then he called her from beneath her: .Do not grieve; your Lord has placed a stream beneath you
19:25  Shake the trunk of the palm-tree towards yourself and, it will drop upon you ripe fresh dates
19:26  So eat, drink and cool your eyes. Then if you see any human being, say (to him), .I have vowed a fast (of silence) for the All-Merciful (Allah,) and therefore, I shall never speak to any human today
19:27  Then she came to her people carrying him (the baby). They said, .O Maryam you have committed something grave indeed
19:28  O sister of Harun, neither your father was a man of evil nor was your mother unchaste
19:29  So, she pointed towards him (the baby). They said, .How shall we speak to someone who is still a child in the cradle?
19:30  Spoke he (the baby), .Verily I am the servant of Allah. He has given me the Book, and made me a prophet
19:31  and He has made me a blessed one wherever I be, and has enjoined Salah and Zakah upon me as long as I am alive
19:32  and (He has made me) good to my mother, and he did not make me oppressive (or) ill-fated
19:33  And peace is upon me the day I was born, the day I shall die, and the day I shall be raised alive again
19:34  That is ‘Isa, the son of Maryam, to say the truth in which they (Christians) are disputing
19:35  It is not for Allah to have a son. Pure is He. When He decides a thing, He simply says to it, .Be. and it comes to be
19:36  And (O Prophet, say to the people,) .Allah is surely my Lord and your Lord. So, worship Him. This is the straight path
19:37  Then the groups among them fell in dispute. So, how evil is the fate of the disbelievers when they have to face the Great Day
19:38  How strong will their hearing be, and how strong their vision, the day they will come to Us! But today the transgressors are straying in clear error
19:39  Warn them of The Day of Remorse when the whole thing will be settled, while they are heedless and do not believe
19:40  Surely We, only We, shall be the ultimate owner of the earth and all those on it, and to Us they will be returned
19:41  And mention in the Book (the story of) Ibrahim. Indeed, he was Siddiq (a man of truth), a prophet
19:42  when he said to his father, .My dear father, why do you worship something that does neither hear nor see, nor help you in any way
19:43  My dear father, indeed there has come to me a knowledge that has not come to you; so, follow me, and I shall lead you to a straight path
19:44  My dear father, do not worship the Satan. The Satan is surely rebellious to the All-Merciful, (Allah)
19:45  My dear father, I fear lest a punishment from the All- Merciful (Allah) should afflict you, and you become a companion of Satan
19:46  He said, .Are you averse to my gods O Ibrahim? Should you not stop, I will definitely stone you. And leave me for good
19:47  He said, .Peace on you. I shall seek forgiveness for you from my Lord. He has always been gracious to me
19:48  And I go away from you and what you invoke besides Allah. And I shall invoke my Lord. Hopefully I shall not be a looser by invoking my Lord
19:49  So, when he went away from them and what they worshipped besides Allah, We blessed him with IsHaq (Isaac) and Ya‘qub (Jacob) and We made each one of them a prophet
19:50  and We bestowed on them (a great deal) of our mercy, and caused them to have a good name at a high level
19:51  And mention in the Book (the story of) Musa. Indeed he was a chosen one and was a messenger, a prophet
19:52  And We called him from the right side of the mount Tur (Sinai), and We brought him close to communicate in secret
19:53  And, out of Our mercy, We granted him his brother Harun as a prophet
19:54  And mention in the Book (the story of) Isma‘il. He was indeed true to his promise, and was a messenger, a prophet
19:55  He used to enjoin Salah and Zakah upon his family, and was favourite to his Lord
19:56  And mention in the Book (the story of) Idris. He was indeed a Siddiq (man of truth), a prophet
19:57  We raised him to a high place
19:58  Those are the people whom Allah has blessed with bounties, the prophets from the progeny of ‘Adam, and of those whom We caused to board (the Ark) along with NuH, and from the progeny of Ibrahim and Isra‘il (Jacob), and from those whom We guided and selected. When the verses of The RaHman (The All-Merciful) were recited before them, they used to fall down in Sajdah (prostration), while they were weeping
19:59  Then came after them the successors who neglected Salah and followed (their selfish) desires. So they will soon face (the outcome of their) deviation
19:60  except those who repent and believe and do good deeds, and therefore they will enter the Paradise and will not be wronged at all
19:61  (They will enter) the Gardens of eternity, promised by the All-Merciful (Allah) to His servants, in the unseen world. They will surely reach (the places of) His promise
19:62  They will not hear anything absurd therein, but a word of peace, and there they will have their provision at morn and eve
19:63  That is the Paradise We will give as inheritance to those of Our servants who have been God-fearing
19:64  (Jibra‘il X said to the Holy Prophet) .We do not descend but with the command of your Lord. To Him belongs what is in front of us and what is behind us and what is in between; and your Lord is not the One who forgets
19:65  (He is) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever lies between them. So, worship Him and persevere in His worship. Do you know any one worthy of His name?
19:66  Man says, .Is it that, once I die, I shall be brought forth alive?
19:67  Does not the man remember that We created him before, when he was nothing
19:68  So, by your Lord, We will definitely gather them together, and the devils as well; then We will definitely make them present around the Jahannam , fallen on their knees
19:69  Then, out of every group, We will certainly draw out those who were more rebellious against the All-Merciful (Allah)
19:70  Then of course, We are most aware of those who are more deserving to enter it (the Jahannam )
19:71  There is none among you who does not have to arrive at it. This is undertaken by your Lord as an absolute decree, bound to be enforced
19:72  Then We will save those who feared Allah, and will leave the wrongdoers in it, fallen on their knees
19:73  When Our verses are recited to them in all their clarity, the disbelievers say to the believers, .Which of the two groups is superior in its place and better in its assembly?
19:74  How many a generation We have destroyed before them who were better in assets and outlook
19:75  Say, .Whoever stays straying, let his term be extended by the All-Merciful (Allah) still longer, until when they will see what they are being warned of: either the punishment or the Hour (of Doom), then they will know who was worse in his place and weaker in his forces
19:76  Allah makes those on the right path excel in guidance. And the everlasting virtues are better with your Lord in respect of reward and better in their return
19:77  Have you, then, seen him who rejected Our verses and said, .I shall certainly be given wealth and children.
19:78  Has he peeped into the Unseen or taken a covenant with the All-Merciful (Allah)
19:79  Never! We will write what he says and extend for him the punishment extensively
19:80  And We will inherit from him what he is talking about, and he will come to Us all alone
19:81  They have taken gods other than Allah, so that they may be a source of might for them
19:82  Never! They (their fabricated deities) will soon reject their having worshipped them, and they will be just the opposite for them
19:83  Have you not seen that We have sent the devils onto the disbelievers inciting them with all their incitements
19:84  So make no hurry about them; We are but counting for them a count down
19:85  The day We will assemble the God-fearing before the All-Merciful (Allah) as guests
19:86  and will drive the sinners towards the Jahannam as herds of cattle (are driven) towards water
19:87  none will have power to intercede, except the one who has entered into a covenant with the All-Merciful (Allah)
19:88  They say, .The All-Merciful (Allah) has got a son
19:89  Indeed you have come up with such an abominable statemen
19:90  that the heavens are well-nigh to explode at it, and the earth to burst apart, and the mountains to fall down crumbling
19:91  for they have ascribed a son to the All-Merciful (Allah)
19:92  while it does not behove the All-Merciful to have a son
19:93  There is none in the heavens and the earth, but bound to come to the All-Merciful as a salve
19:94  He has fully encompassed them and precisely calculated their numbers
19:95  and each one of them is bound to come to Him on the Day of Judgment, all alone
19:96  Surely, those who believe and do righteous deeds, for them the All-Merciful (Allah) will create love
19:97  So We have made it (the Qur‘an) easy through your tongue, so that you give with it the good news to the God-fearing, and warn with it an obstinate people
19:98  And how many a generation We have destroyed before them! Do you sense (the presence of) any one of them, or hear from them even a whisper
