(This is) a mention of the mercy of your Lord unto His servant Zechariah
When he called upon his Lord in secret
He said: 'My Lord! verily my bones are weakened and my head is all aflame with hoariness, and, my Lord! I have never been unblessed in prayer to You
And verily I fear my kindred after I am gone, and my wife is barren. So grant me from your presence a successor (a child)
(One that) shall be my inheritor and the inheritor of the posterity of Jacob; and make him, my Lord, well-pleasing
(His prayer was answered:) O' Zakariyya! verily We give you good tidings of a son whose name is Yahya (John). We have given the same name to none before (him)
He said: 'My Lord! How shall there be for me a son while my wife is barren and I have reached infirm old age?'
He said: 'So (it will be)'. Your Lord says: 'It is easy for Me, for indeed I created you aforetime when you were nothing'
He (Zechariah) said: 'My Lord! appoint for me a sign.' Said He: 'Your sign is that you shall not be able to speak to the people for three nights, though sound (in health)
Then he went out (of the sanctuary) unto his people and made signs unto them that they should glorify (Allah) morning and evening
'O' Yahya! Take hold of the Book with might.'And We gave him wisdom (apostleship) while yet a child
And (also) compassion from Us and piety; and he was God-fearing
And kindness to his parents, and (unto the people) he was neither insolent (nor) disobedient
And peace on him the day he was born, and the day he dies, and the day he shall be raised alive
And mention in the Book about Mary when she withdrew from her family to an eastern place
So she took a veil (to screen herself) apart from them. Then We sent unto her Our Spirit (Holy Spirit) that presented himself to her a perfect man
She said: 'Verily I take refuge in the Beneficent (Allah) from you! if you are God-fearing
He (the angel) said: 'Verily I am only a messenger of your Lord that I bestow on you a pure son'
She said: 'How shall there be for me a son while no man has touched me, neither have I been unchaste
He said: 'So (it will be)'. Your Lord says: 'It is easy for Me, and that We will make him a Sign (miracle) unto the people and a Mercy from Us, and it is a matter decreed
So she conceived him (Jesus) and withdrew with him to a distance place
And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm-tree. She said: 'Would I had died ere this, and had been a thing forgotten'
Then (a voice) called out unto her from beneath her: 'Grieve not! Verily your Lord has made a stream to flow beneath you'
And shake the trunk of the palm-tree towards yourself. It will drop on you fresh ripe dates
So eat and drink and refresh your eye; and if you meet any mortal, say: 'Verily I have vowed a fast to the Beneficent (God), so never shall I speak today with any human being'
Then she brought the child to her people, carrying him (in her arms). They said: 'Verily you have done a very indecent thing'
O sister of Aaron! Your father was not a bad man, nor was your mother an unchaste woman
Then Mary pointed to him. They said: 'How shall we speak to one who is (yet) a child in the cradle?'
He (miraculously) said: 'Verily I am a servant of Allah; He has given me the Book and made me a prophet'
And He has made me blessed wherever I may be and He has enjoined on me prayer and almsgiving so long as I live
And (He has made me) kind to my mother, and He has not made me arrogant unblessed
And peace be on me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I shall be raised alive
This is Jesus, son of Mary, a statement of truth, concerning which they doubt
It is not befitting to Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! When He decrees a thing, He only says unto it: 'Be', and it is
And verily Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship (only) Him. This is a straight path
Then the sects did differ among themselves; and woe to those who disbelieved because of presence on the great day
How well they will hear and see on the day they come to Us! But the unjust (even) this day are in manifest straying
And ware them of the Day of Regret, when the matter shall have been decreed while they are (now) in negligence and they do not believe
Verily We inherit the earth and all that are upon it and unto Us they shall be returned
And mention Abraham in the Book; verily he was a truthful man, a prophet
When he said to his father: 'O my father! Why do you worship that which neither hears nor sees, nor does avail you in aught
O' my father! There has come unto me of knowledge which has not come unto you, so follow me, I will guide you on a right path
O' my father! Serve not Satan. Verily Satan is disobedient unto the Beneficent (Allah)
O my father! I fear lest a chastisement afflict you from the Beneficent (Allah) so that you become a friend to Satan
He said: 'Do you dislike my gods O' Abraham? If you do not desist, I will certainly stone you. Be gone from me for a long time'.
He said: 'Peace be upon you: I will ask my Lord to forgive you: for verily He is ever affectionate to me'
And I will withdraw from you and what you call on besides Allah, and I will call upon my Lord: may be I shall not remain unblessed in calling upon my Lord
So when he withdrew from them and what they worshipped besides Allah, We bestowed on him Isaac and Jacob and each (of them) We made a prophet
And We bestowed of Our Mercy on them, and assigned unto them a high and true renown
And mention Moses in the Book; for verily he was one purified, and he was an apostle, a prophet
And We called him from the right side of (the Mount) Sinai and made him draw nigh (unto Us) for a converse in secret
And We granted unto him, out of Our Mercy, his brother Aaron a prophet
And mention 'Isma'il in the Book, verily he was (ever) true to (his) promise, and he was an apostle, a prophet
And he used to enjoin on his family prayer and almsgiving, and he was well pleased in the sight of his Lord
And mention Idris in the Book; verily he was a truthful one, a prophet
And We raised him to a lofty station
Those were some of the prophets on whom Allah showed favour of the seed of Adam, and of those We carried (in the Ark) with Noah, and of the seed of Abraham and Israel, and of those We guided and chose. When the revelations of the Beneficent (Allah) were recited unto them, they fell down prostrating and weeping
Then there succeeded them a later generation who ruined prayers and followed lusts. Soon, then, they shall meet perdition
Except him who repents, and believes, and does a righteous deed, then these shall enter Paradise, and they shall not be dealt with unjustly in any way
Gardens of Eternity that the Beneficent (Allah) has promised to His servants in the Unseen; verily His promise shall come to pass
There they shall hear no idle talk, but only 'Peace'. Therein they shall have their sustenance (every) morning and evening
This is the Garden (Paradise) which We shall cause those of Our servants to inherit who are pious
And we (angels) do not descend but by the command of your Lord; to Him belongs whatever is before us and whatever is behind us and whatever is between these (two)! And your Lord is not forgetful
The Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them; so worship Him (alone), and be steadfast in His worship! Do you know any one equal to Him
And man says: 'When I am dead shall I be raised up alive?'
Does not man remember that We created him before, when he was nothing
So by your Lord, We shall surely muster them, and the Satans (with them), then We shall cause them to be present round Hell on their knees
Then shall We pick out from every group whichever of them was more intensely rebellious against the Beneficent (Allah)
Again We do know best those who deserve most to be burnt therein
And (there is) not one of you but shall come to it (Hell). This is, with your Lord, a fixed decree
Then We shall rescue those who kept from evil, and leave the unjust therein on their knees
And when Our clear revelations are recited unto them, those who disbelieve say to those who believe: 'Which of the two parties is better in station and fairer in assembly'
And how many a generation have We destroyed before them, who were better in equipment and outward appearance
Say: 'Whoever goes astray, the Beneficent (Allah) will prolong his span of life until, when they see what they were promised, whether it be the chastisement (in this world), or the Hour (of Doom), then they will know who is worse in position and weaker in hosts'
And Allah increases in guidance those who are guided aright, and the everlasting good deeds are better with your Lord in reward, and better in return
Have you seen him who disbelieves in Our revelations and says: 'I shall surely be given wealth and children (abundantly)
Has he got the (knowledge of) Unseen, or has taken from the Beneficent (Allah) a promise
No, We will write down what he says and We will prolong for him the chastisement
And We will inherit what he talks of, and he shall come unto Us all alone
And they have taken gods besides Allah that they might be for them a glory
No, soon they (gods) shall deny their worship, and become adversaries against them
Have you not seen (how) We sent the Satans unto the disbelievers to incite them with an incitement
So make no haste against them, for We but count out to them a number (of days)
On the day We muster the pious unto the Beneficent (Allah) (like the guest) of honour
And We shall drive the sinners unto Hell thirsty
They shall not own any intercession, save he who has taken a promise with the Beneficent (Allah)
And they say: 'The Beneficent (Allah) has taken (unto Himself) a son'
Indeed you have put forth something hideous
At it the skies are about to burst, and the earth to split asunder, and the mountains to fall down crashing
That they attributed a son to the Beneficent (Allah)
When it is not worthy of the Beneficent (Allah) that He should take (to Himself) a son
There is none in the heavens and the earth but comes unto the Beneficent (Allah) as a servant
Certainly He has counted them, and He has numbered them exactly
And every one of them shall come to Him on the Day of Resurrection, all alone
Verily those who believe and do righteous deeds, soon the Beneficent (Allah) will appoint love for them
So We have made it (The Qur'an) easy in your tongue that you may give glad tidings thereby to the pious ones, and warn thereby stubborn people
And how many a generation before have We destroyed! Do you find any one of them or hear a sound of them
