Did you notice?
19:1  Kaf, Ha, Ya, ‘Ayn, á¹¢ad
19:2  [This is] an account of your Lord’s mercy on His servant, Zechariah
19:3  when he called out to his Lord with a secret cry
19:4  He said, ‘My Lord! Indeed my bones have become feeble, and my head has turned white with age, yet never have I, my Lord, been disappointed in supplicating You
19:5  Indeed I fear my kinsmen, after me, and my wife is barren. So grant me from Yourself an hei
19:6  who may inherit from me and inherit from the House of Jacob, and make him, my Lord, pleasing [to You]!&rsquo
19:7  ‘O Zechariah! Indeed We give you the good news of a son, whose name is ‘‘John.’’ Never before have We made anyone his namesake.&rsquo
19:8  He said, ‘My Lord! How shall I have a son, when my wife is barren, and I am already advanced in age?&rsquo
19:9  He said, ‘So shall it be. Your Lord has said, ‘‘It is simple for Me.’’ Certainly I created you before when you were nothing.&rsquo
19:10  He said, ‘My Lord! Appoint a sign for me.’ He said, ‘Your sign is that you will not speak to the people for three complete nights.&rsquo
19:11  So he emerged before his people from the Temple, and signaled to them that they should glorify [Allah] morning and evening
19:12  ‘O John!’ [We said,] ‘Hold on with power to the Book!’ And We gave him judgement while still a child
19:13  and a compassion and purity from Us. He was Godwary
19:14  and good to his parents, and was not self-willed or disobedient
19:15  Peace be to him, the day he was born, and the day he dies, and the day he is raised alive
19:16  And mention in the Book Mary, when she withdrew from her family to an easterly place
19:17  Thus did she seclude herself from them, whereupon We sent to her Our Spirit and he became incarnate for her as a well-proportioned human
19:18  She said, ‘I seek the protection of the All-beneficent from you, should you be Godwary!&rsquo
19:19  He said, ‘I am only a messenger of your Lord that I may give you a pure son.&rsquo
19:20  She said, ‘How shall I have a child seeing that no human being has ever touched me, nor have I been unchaste?&rsquo
19:21  He said, ‘So shall it be. Your Lord says, ‘‘It is simple for Me.’’ And so that We may make him a sign for mankind and a mercy from Us, and it is a matter [already] decided.&rsquo
19:22  Thus she conceived him, then withdrew with him to a distant place
19:23  The birth pangs brought her to the trunk of a date palm. She said, ‘I wish I had died before this and become a forgotten thing, beyond recall.&rsquo
19:24  Thereupon he called her from below her [saying,] ‘Do not grieve! Your Lord has made a spring to flow at your feet
19:25  Shake the trunk of the palm tree, freshly picked dates will drop upon you
19:26  Eat, drink, and be comforted. Then if you see any human, say, ‘‘Indeed I have vowed a fast to the All-beneficent, so I will not speak to any human today.’’ &rsquo
19:27  Then carrying him she brought him to her people. They said, ‘O Mary, you have certainly come up with an odd thing
19:28  O sister of Aaron[’s lineage]! Your father was not an evil man, nor was your mother unchaste.&rsquo
19:29  Thereat she pointed to him. They said, ‘How can we speak to one who is yet a baby in the cradle?&rsquo
19:30  He said, ‘Indeed I am a servant of Allah! He has given me the Book and made me a prophet
19:31  He has made me blessed, wherever I may be, and He has enjoined me to [maintain] the prayer and to [pay] the zakat as long as I live
19:32  and to be good to my mother, and He has not made me self-willed and wretched
19:33  Peace is to me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I am raised alive.&rsquo
19:34  That is Jesus, son of Mary, a Word of the Real concerning whom they are in doubt
19:35  It is not for Allah to take a son. Immaculate is He! When He decides on a matter, He just says to it, ‘Be!’ and it is
19:36  ‘Indeed Allah is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him. This is a straight path.&rsquo
19:37  But the factions differed among themselves. So woe to the faithless at the scene of a tremendous day
19:38  How well they will hear and how well they will see on the day when they come to Us! But today the wrongdoers are in manifest error
19:39  Warn them of the Day of Regret, when the matter will be decided, while they are [yet] heedless and do not have faith
19:40  Indeed We shall inherit the earth and whoever there is on it, and to Us they shall be brought back
19:41  And mention in the Book Abraham. Indeed he was a truthful one, a prophet
19:42  When he said to his father, ‘Father! Why do you worship that which neither hears nor sees, and is of no avail to you in any way
19:43  Father! Indeed a knowledge has already come to me which has not come to you. So follow me that I may guide you to a right path
19:44  Father! Do not worship Satan. Indeed Satan is disobedient to the All-beneficent
19:45  Father! I am indeed afraid that a punishment from the All-beneficent will befall you, and you will become Satan’s accomplice.&rsquo
19:46  He said, ‘Abraham! Are you renouncing my gods? If you do not relinquish, I will stone you. Keep away from me for a long while.&rsquo
19:47  He said, ‘Peace be to you! I shall plead with my Lord to forgive you. Indeed He is gracious to me
19:48  I dissociate myself from you and whatever you invoke besides Allah. I will supplicate my Lord. Hopefully, I will not be disappointed in supplicating my Lord.&rsquo
19:49  So when he had left them and what they worshipped besides Allah, We gave him Isaac and Jacob, and each We made a prophet
19:50  And We gave them out of Our mercy, and conferred on them a worthy and lofty repute
19:51  And mention in the Book Moses. Indeed he was exclusively dedicated [to Allah], and an apostle and a prophet
19:52  We called him from the right side of the Mount and We drew him near for confidential discourse
19:53  And We gave him out of Our mercy his brother Aaron, a prophet
19:54  And mention in the Book Ishmael. Indeed he was true to his promise, and an apostle and a prophet
19:55  He used to bid his family to [maintain] the prayer and to [pay] the zakat, and was pleasing to his Lord
19:56  And mention in the Book Idra«s. Indeed he was a truthful one, a prophet
19:57  and We raised him to a station exalted
19:58  They are the ones whom Allah has blessed from among the prophets of Adam’s progeny, and from [the progeny of] those We carried with Noah, and from among the progeny of Abraham and Israel, and from among those We guided and chose. When the signs of the All-beneficent were recited to them, they would fall down weeping in prostration
19:59  But they were succeeded by an evil posterity who neglected the prayer, and followed [their base] appetites. So they will soon encounter [the reward of] perversity
19:60  barring those who repent, believe, and act righteously. Such will enter paradise, and they will not be wronged in the least
19:61  Gardens of Eden promised by the All-beneficent to His servants, [while they were still] unseen. Indeed His promise is bound to come to pass
19:62  Therein they will not hear vain talk, but only ‘Peace!’ And therein they will have their provision morning and evening
19:63  This is the paradise We will give as inheritance to those of Our servants who are Godwary
19:64  ‘We do not descend except by the command of your Lord. To Him belongs whatever is before us and whatever is behind us and whatever is in between that, and your Lord is not forgetful
19:65  The Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them. So worship Him and be steadfast in His worship. Do you know anyone who could be His namesake?&rsquo
19:66  Man says, ‘Shall I, when I have died, be brought forth alive?&rsquo
19:67  Does not man remember that We created him before when he was nothing
19:68  By your Lord, We will surely gather them and the devils; then We will surely bring them up around hell [scrambling] on their knees
19:69  Then from every group We shall draw whichever of them was more defiant to the All-beneficent
19:70  Then surely We will know best those who deserve most to enter it
19:71  There is none of you but will come to it: a [matter that is a] decided certainty with your Lord
19:72  Then We will deliver those who are Godwary, and leave the wrongdoers in it, fallen on their knees
19:73  When Our manifest signs are recited to them, the faithless say to the faithful, ‘Which of the two sides is superior in station and better with respect to company?&rsquo
19:74  How many a generation We have destroyed before them, who were superior in furnishings and appearance
19:75  Say, ‘Whoever abides in error, the All-beneficent shall prolong his respite until they sight what they have been promised: either punishment, or the Hour.’ Then they will know whose position is worse, and whose host is weaker
19:76  Allah enhances in guidance those who are [rightly] guided, and lasting righteous deeds are better with your Lord in reward, and better at the return [to Allah]
19:77  Have you not regarded him who defies Our signs, and says, ‘I will surely be given wealth and children’
19:78  Has he come to know the Unseen, or taken a promise from the All-beneficent
19:79  No indeed! We will write down what he says, and We will prolong his punishment endlessly
19:80  We shall take over from him what he talks about, and he will come to Us alone
19:81  They have taken gods besides Allah that they may be a [source of] might to them
19:82  No Indeed! Soon they will disown their worship, and they will be their opponents
19:83  Have you not regarded that We unleash the devils upon the faithless to urge them impetuously
19:84  So do not make haste against them; indeed We are counting for them, a counting [down]
19:85  The day We shall gather the Godwary toward the All-beneficent, on mounts
19:86  and drive the guilty as a thirsty herd towards hell
19:87  No one will have the power to intercede [with Allah], except for him who has taken a covenant with the All-beneficent
19:88  They say, ‘The All-beneficent has taken a son!&rsquo
19:89  You have certainly advanced something hideous
19:90  The heavens are about to be rent apart at it, the earth to split open, and the mountains to collapse into bits
19:91  that they should ascribe a son to the All-beneficent
19:92  It does not behoove the All-beneficent to take a son
19:93  There is none in the heavens and the earth but he comes to the All-beneficent as a servant
19:94  Certainly He has counted them [all] and numbered them precisely
19:95  and each of them will come to Him alone on the Day of Resurrection
19:96  Indeed those who have faith and do righteous deeds —the All-beneficent will endear them [to His creation]
19:97  Indeed We have made it simple in your language so that you may give good news thereby to the Godwary and warn with it a disputatious lot
19:98  How many a generation We have destroyed before them! Can you descry any one of them, or hear from them so much as a murmur
