K.H.Y.A.S. (Kaf. Ha. Ya. Ain. Sud.)
(This is) a mention of your Lord’s mercy to His servant Zachariah.
When he called his Lord, a private calling.
He said: “My Lord, indeed my bones have weakened and my head (hair) has turned white (from old age), and I have not been unhappy about praying to you, my Lord,
indeed I am afraid of my relatives after me (after I die), and my wife is infertile, so give me an heir from Yourself,
to inherit from me and inherit from Jacob’s family. And my Lord, make him pleasing.”
(He was told:) “Zachariah, indeed We give you good news of a boy, his name is Yahya (John the Baptist), We have not given anyone his attribute (or name) in the past.”
He said: “My Lord, how can I have a son while my wife is infertile and I have reached extreme old age?”
He (the angel) said: “It is so,” your Lord says: “It is easy for Me, I have created you in the past while you were nothing.”
He said: “My Lord, give me a sign.” He said: “Your sign is that you will not speak to people for three nights (being) sound (and healthy).”
So he went out of the chamber (place of prayer) to his people, and revealed to them (by sign language) to glorify (God) morning and evening.
Yahya, take the book firmly. And We gave him wisdom from childhood,
and sympathy and purity (and integrity) from Us, and he was cautious (of God),
and good (and kind) to his parent, and he was not a disobeying bully.
And peace (and well-being) upon him the day he was born and the day he died and the day he is raised to life.
And mention Mary in the book, when she withdrew from her family to an eastern place.
She took a partition (to separate herself) from them, then We sent Our spirit (Gabriel) to her, and he looked like a perfect human being to her.
She said: “I seek protection of the beneficent from you, if you are cautious (of God, then stay away from me).”
He said: “I am only a messenger of your Lord to give you a pure (and righteous) boy.”
She said: “How can I have a son while no man has ever touched me? I have not been unchaste.”
He said: “So it is, your Lord says: “It is easy for Me, and We make him a sign for people and a mercy from Us, and it is a matter already decided.””
So she conceived him, and withdrew to a remote place with him.
The pain of childbirth drove her to trunk of the date palm. She said: “I wish I was dead before this and I was completely forgotten.”
Then (a voice) called her from under her (saying:) “Do not be sad, your Lord has placed a stream under you,
and shake the trunk of the date palm towards you and it will drop fresh ripe dates on you,
so eat and drink and be cheerful. And if you see any human being, then say: “Indeed I have pledged a fast for the beneficent, so I will never talk to any human being today.””
Then she brought him to her people, carrying him. They said: “Mary, you have done an unprecedented thing,
sister of Aaron, your father was not a bad man and your mother was not unchaste.”
Then she pointed to him. They said: “How can we talk to any child who is in the cradle?”
He said: “Indeed I am God’s servant, He gave me the book and made me a prophet,
and He made me blessed wherever I am, and He instructed me to mandatory prayer and mandatory charity as long as I live,
and to be good (and kind) to my mother, and He did not make me a miserable bully,
and peace (and well-being) upon me on a day I was born, and a day that I die, and a day I am raised to life.”
That is (the story of) Jesus, son of Mary, a true word that they doubt about it.
It is not for God to take a child, He is flawless. When He decides on a matter, then He just says for it: “Be” and it will be.
And (Jesus said:) “Indeed God is my Lord and your Lord, so serve Him, this is a straight path.”
Then the parties disagreed among themselves, so woe to those who disbelieve in seeing the great day (the Resurrection Day).
How well they hear and see on a day they come to Us! But today the wrongdoers are in obvious error.
And warn them of the day of regret, when the matter is decided while they are in negligence and they do not believe.
Indeed We inherit the earth and whoever is on it and they are returned to Us.
And mention Abraham in the book, he was a truthful prophet.
When he said to his father: “My father, why do you serve something that does not hear and does not see and is of no use to you at all?
My father, indeed some knowledge has come to me that has not come to you, so follow me, I guide you to a proper path.
My father, do not serve Satan, indeed Satan is rebellious against the beneficent.
My father, I am afraid that a punishment from the beneficent touches you, and you will be a friend of Satan.”
He said: “Abraham, do you hate my gods? If you do not stop, I shall stone you. Keep away from me for a long while.”
He said: “Peace (and well-being) upon you, I am going to ask forgiveness for you from my Lord, indeed he is kind to me.
I stay away from you and what you call on besides God, and I call on my Lord, perhaps I will not be unhappy with prayer to my Lord.”
So when he stayed away from them and what they served besides God, We gave him Isaac and Jacob, and We made each of them a prophet.
And We gave them from Our mercy, and We gave them a true and high fame.
And mention Moses in the book. Indeed he was devoted, and he was a messenger and a prophet.
And We called him from the right side of the mountain (Mount Sinai), and brought him close for a private talk.
And We gave him his brother Aaron from Our mercy, a prophet.
And mention Ishmael in the book. Indeed he was true to the promise and he was a messenger and a prophet.
And he used to order his family to mandatory prayer and mandatory charity, and he was pleasing in his Lord's view.
And mention Idris (Enoch) in the book. Indeed he was a truthful prophet.
And We raised him to an elevated position.
They are those whom God favored upon them among the prophets from descendants of Adam and from those whom We carried with Noah (in the Ark) and from descendants of Abraham and Israel (Jacob), and from those whom We guided and We chose. When signs of the beneficent were read to them, they fell down prostrating (being humble) and crying.
Then successors followed after them who neglected (or abandoned) mandatory prayer and followed their desires, so they will face (the result of their) error,
except anyone who repents, and believes and does good, then they enter the garden and will not be wronged a bit.
Eternal gardens which the beneficent has promised His servants as the unseen. Indeed His promise is coming.
They will not hear any useless (talk) in there, but only peace (and well-being), and they will have their provision (and food) in it, morning and evening (and throughout the day).
This is the garden that We will leave as inheritance to Our servants who are cautious (of God).
And we (the angels) will not come down except by your Lord's command, whatever in front of us and whatever behind us and whatever between that belong to Him. And your Lord is not forgetful.
(He is) the Lord of the skies and the earth and whatever between them, so serve Him and be persistent in His servitude. Do you know anyone with the same attributes (or names) as His?
And the human being says: “Will I be brought back to life after I am dead?”
Or does the human being not remember that We created him in the past while he was nothing?
And by your Lord, We shall gather them and the devils, then We shall bring them in attendance around the hell on their knees.
Then from every group We shall pick out those of them who were more unruly against the beneficent.
And We certainly know better those who deserve it, entering (and burning).
And there is not any of you who will not arrive there (around hell). This is an unavoidable decision of your Lord.
Then We save those who were cautious (of God), and We leave the wrongdoers in there on their knees.
And when Our clear signs are read to them, those who disbelieved say to those who believed: “Which one of the two groups is in better position and in better company?”
And We destroyed many generations before them who were better in assets and in appearance.
Say: “Anyone who is in error, then the beneficent extends an extension to him (to continue on with their ways), until they see what they are promised, either the punishment or the Hour, then they are going to know who is in a worse position and weaker in forces.
And God increases guidance of those who are guided. And the lasting good (works) have a better reward with your Lord and have a better return.”
Have you seen the one who disbelieved in Our signs and said: “I will certainly be given wealth and children.”?
Did he know the unseen or did he take a promise from the beneficent?
Not at all, We are going to write what he says, and We extend an extension for him from the punishment.
And We will inherit from him whatever he says (wealth and children) and he comes to Us alone.
And they took gods other than God to be (source of) power (and honor) for them.
Not at all, they are going to deny their servitude, and will be an adversary against them.
Have you not considered that We send the devils to the disbelievers to encourage them strongly (to sin)?
So do not be in a hurry against them, We only count number (of their days and their sins) for them.
A day that We gather those who were cautious (of God) as a delegation to the beneficent,
and We are going to drive the guilty ones to hell in thirst.
(On that day) no one will have the power of mediation except anyone who took a promise from the beneficent.
And they say: “The beneficent has taken a child.”
You (disbelievers) have certainly done a horrible thing.
And the skies are about to tear from it and the earth is about to split wide open and the mountains are about to fall down collapsing,
that they designate a child to the beneficent.
It is not becoming for the beneficent to take a child.
Everyone in the skies and the earth only comes to the beneficent as a servant.
He certainly takes them to account, and has counted them, (an exact) count.
And each of them comes to the Resurrection Day alone.
Indeed the beneficent is going to put love (and friendship in hearts) for those who believe and do good.
So We have only made it (Quran) easy in your language, for you to give good news to those who are cautious (of God) with it, and to warn contentious (and hostile) people with it.
And We destroyed many generations before them. Do you see any one of them or hear any sound from them?
