19:1  Kaf-Ha-Ya-A’in-Sad. (* Alphabets of the Arabic language - Allah and to whomever He reveals know their precise meanings.
19:2  This is the remembrance of the mercy of your Lord upon His bondman Zakaria
19:3  When he softly prayed to his Lord
19:4  He submitted, "O my Lord - my bones have become weak and old age shines forth from my head, and O my Lord, I have never been disappointed in my prayer to you."
19:5  "And I fear my relatives after me and my wife is barren therefore bestow upon me from Yourself one who will take up my work."
19:6  "He being my successor and the heir of the Descendants of Yaqub (Jacob); and my Lord, make him a cherished * one." (* Make him a Prophet among the Descendants of Israel.
19:7  "O Zakaria! We give you the glad tidings of a son whose name is Yahya (John) - before him, We have not created anyone of this name."
19:8  He submitted, "My Lord - how can I have a son whereas my wife is barren and I have reached infirmity due to old age?"
19:9  He (the angel) said, "So it is; your Lord says, ‘This is easy for Me - in fact I created you before this, at a time when you did not exist.’ "
19:10  He said, "My Lord, give me a sign"; He said, "Your token is that you will not speak to people for three nights, although in proper health."
19:11  He therefore emerged upon his people from the mosque, and told them through gestures, "Keep proclaiming the Purity (of your Lord) morning and evening."
19:12  "O Yahya - hold the Book firmly"; and We gave him Prophethood in his infancy. (Prophet Yahya was only 2 years old at that time.
19:13  And compassion from Ourselves, and chastity; and he was extremely pious
19:14  And was good to his parents and not forceful, nor disobedient
19:15  And peace is upon him the day he was born, and the day he will taste death, and the day he will be raised alive
19:16  And remember Maryam in the Book; when she went away from her family to a place towards east
19:17  So there she screened herself from them; We therefore sent Our Spirit towards her - he appeared before her in the form of a healthy man. (Angel Jibreel – peace be upon him.
19:18  She said, "I seek the refuge of the Most Gracious from you - if you fear God."
19:19  He said, "I am indeed one sent by your Lord; so that I may give you a chaste son."
19:20  She said, "How can I bear a son? No man has ever touched me, nor am I of poor conduct!"
19:21  He said, "So it is; your Lord has said, ‘This is easy for Me’; and in order that We make him a sign for mankind and a Mercy from Us; and this matter has been decreed."
19:22  So she conceived him, and she went away with him to a far place
19:23  Then the pangs of childbirth brought her to the base of the palm-tree; she said, "Oh, if only had I died before this and had become forgotten, unremembered."
19:24  (The angel) Therefore he called her from below her, “Do not grieve - your Lord has made a river flow below you.”
19:25  "And shake the trunk of the palm-tree towards you - ripe fresh dates will fall upon you." (This was a miracle - the date palm was dry and it was winter season.
19:26  "Therefore eat and drink and appease your eyes; so if you meet any person then say, ‘I have pledged a fast (of silence) to the Most Gracious - I will therefore not speak to any person today.’ "
19:27  So carrying him in her arms, she brought him to her people; they said, "O Maryam, you have indeed committed a great evil!"
19:28  "O sister of Haroon, neither was your father an evil man nor was your mother of poor conduct!"
19:29  Thereupon she pointed towards the child; they said, "How can we speak to an infant who is in the cradle?"
19:30  The child proclaimed, "I am Allah’s bondman; He has given me the Book and made me a Herald of the Hidden (a Prophet)."
19:31  "And He has made me blessed wherever I be; and ordained upon me prayer and charity, as long as I live."
19:32  "And has made me good to my mother and not made me forceful, ill-fated."
19:33  "And peace is upon me the day I was born, and on the day I shall taste death, and on the day I will be raised alive."
19:34  This is Eisa (Jesus), the son of Maryam; a true statement, in which they doubt
19:35  It does not befit Allah to appoint someone as His son - Purity is to Him! When He ordains a matter, He just commands it, "Be" - and it thereupon happens
19:36  And said Eisa, "Indeed Allah is my Lord and your Lord - therefore worship Him; this is the Straight Path."
19:37  Then groups among them differed; so ruin is for the disbelievers from the witnessing of a Great Day
19:38  Much will they listen and much will they see, on the Day when they come to Us, but today the unjust are in open error
19:39  And warn them of the Day of Regret when the matter will have been decided; and they are in neglect, and they do not accept faith
19:40  Indeed We shall inherit the earth and all that is on it, and only towards Us will they return
19:41  And remember Ibrahim in the Book; he was very truthful, a Herald of the Hidden (a Prophet)
19:42  When he said to his father, * "O my father - why do you worship one which neither hears nor sees, and cannot benefit you in any way?" (* His uncle Azar.
19:43  "O my father, indeed a knowledge has come to me which did not come to you - therefore follow me, I will show you the Straight Path."
19:44  "O my father, do not be a bondman of the devil; indeed the devil is disobedient towards the Most Gracious."
19:45  "O my father, I fear that a punishment from the Most Gracious may reach you, so you would become a companion of the devil."
19:46  He said, "What! You turn away from my gods, O Ibrahim? If you do not desist, I will certainly stone you, and keep no relation with me for a long while."
19:47  He said, “Stop it - peace be upon you; I shall seek forgiveness for you from my Lord; indeed He is very kind to me.”
19:48  "And I shall remain separated from you and all that you worship other than Allah and shall worship my Lord; possibly, by worshipping my Lord, I will not be amongst the unfortunate.”
19:49  So when he had separated from them and what they worshipped other than Allah, We bestowed him Ishaq and Yaqub; and We made each of them a Herald of the Hidden
19:50  And We gave them Our mercy, and assigned for them a true and high repute
19:51  And remember Moosa in the Book; he was indeed a chosen one, and he was a Noble Messenger, a Herald of the Hidden
19:52  We called him from the right side of the mountain Tur, and brought him close to reveal Our secret
19:53  And with Our mercy We bestowed upon him his brother Haroon, a Prophet
19:54  And remember Ismail in the Book; he was indeed true to his promise and was a Noble Messenger, a Prophet
19:55  He used to command his people to offer prayer and give charity, and was liked by his Lord
19:56  And remember Idrees in the Book; he was indeed very truthful, a Prophet
19:57  And We lifted him to a high position. (Living with soul & body in heaven, after his death.
19:58  It is these upon whom Allah has bestowed favour among the Prophets, from the descendants of Adam; and from those whom We boarded along with Nooh; and from the descendants of Ibrahim and Israel; and from those whom We guided and chose; when the verses of the Most Gracious were recited to them, they fell down, prostrating and weeping. (* Command of Prostration # 5.
19:59  And after them came the unworthy successors who squandered prayer and pursued their own desires, so they will soon encounter the forest of Gai in hell
19:60  Except those who repented and accepted faith and did good deeds - so these will enter heaven, and they will not be deprived * in the least. (* Of their due reward.
19:61  Everlasting Gardens of Eden, which the Most Gracious has promised to His bondmen in the unseen; indeed His promise will come
19:62  They will not hear any lewd talk in it, but only Peace; and in it for them is sustenance, every morning and evening
19:63  It is the Paradise that We will bequeath to those among Our bondmen who remain pious
19:64  (Said Angel Jibreel to Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon them) "And we angels do not come down except by the command of your Lord; to Him only belongs all that is ahead of us and all that is behind us and all that is between them; and your Lord is not forgetful."
19:65  Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them - therefore worship Him and be firm in His worship; do you know any other of the same name as His
19:66  And says man, "When I am dead, will I soon be brought forth alive?"
19:67  Does not man remember that We created him before this, and he was non existent
19:68  So by your Lord, We shall assemble them and the devils - all of them - and bring them around hell, fallen on their knees
19:69  We shall then pick out from every group the one who was most arrogant towards the Most Gracious
19:70  Moreover, We well know those who most deserve to be burned in hell
19:71  And there is none among you who shall not pass over hell; this is an obligatory affair, binding upon your Lord. (Allah will make everyone pass over the back of hell - on a thin bridge.
19:72  We shall then rescue the pious - and leave the unjust in it, fallen on their knees
19:73  And when Our clear verses are recited to them, the disbelievers say to the Muslims, "Which group has a better home, and a better alliance?"
19:74  And many a generation We did destroy before them, who exceeded them in wealth and pomp
19:75  Proclaim, "For one in error - so the Most Gracious may give him respite; to the extent that when they see the thing which they are promised - either the punishment or the Last Day; so then they will come to know for whom is the evil rank and whose army is weak."
19:76  And Allah will increase the guidance for those who have received guidance; and good deeds that remain have the best reward before your Lord, and the best outcome
19:77  So have you seen him who denied Our signs and says, "I shall certainly be given wealth and children?"
19:78  Has he seen the Hidden, or has he made a pact with the Most Gracious
19:79  Never; We shall now record what he says and give him a prolonged punishment
19:80  And it is We only Who shall inherit what he says (belongs to him), and he will come to Us, alone
19:81  And they have chosen gods besides Allah, so that they may provide them strength
19:82  Never; soon they will deny ever worshipping them, and will turn into their opponents
19:83  Did you not see that We sent devils upon the disbelievers, so they excite them abundantly
19:84  So do not be impatient for them (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him); We are only completing their number. * (* The number of days left for them or their evil deeds.
19:85  On the day when We shall assemble the righteous towards the Most Gracious, as guests
19:86  And drive the guilty towards hell, thirsty
19:87  People do not own the right to intercede, except those * who have made a covenant with the Most Gracious. (* The Holy Prophets and virtuous people will be given the permission to intercede. Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him - will be the first to intercede.
19:88  And the disbelievers said, "The Most Gracious has chosen an offspring."
19:89  You have indeed brought an extremely grave speech
19:90  The heavens are close to being torn apart by it, and the earth being split asunder, and the mountains succumbing and falling down
19:91  Due to their ascribing of an offspring to the Most Gracious
19:92  And it does not befit the Most Gracious to choose an offspring
19:93  All those who are in the heavens and the earth will come to the Most Gracious as His bondmen
19:94  He knows their number and has counted each one of them
19:95  And each one of them will come before Him on the Day of Resurrection, alone
19:96  Indeed those who believed and did good deeds - the Most Gracious will appoint love for them. (In the hearts of other believers.
19:97  We have therefore made this Qur’an easy upon your tongue, (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him) for you to announce glad tidings with it to those who fear, and warn those who are quarrelsome
19:98  And many a generation We did destroy before them; do you see any one of them or hear their faintest sound
