Kãf-Ha-Ya-’Aĩn- Ṣãd.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

˹This is˺ a reminder of your Lord’s mercy to His servant Zachariah,

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

when he cried out to his Lord privately,

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

saying, “My Lord! Surely my bones have become brittle, and grey hair has spread across my head, but I have never been disappointed in my prayer to You, my Lord!

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And I am concerned about ˹the faith of˺ my relatives after me, since my wife is barren. So grant me, by Your grace, an heir,

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

who will inherit ˹prophethood˺ from me and the family of Jacob, and make him, O  Lord, pleasing ˹to You˺!”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

˹The angels announced,˺ “O Zachariah! Indeed, We give you the good news of ˹the birth of˺ a son, whose name will be John—a name We have not given to anyone before.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

He wondered, “My Lord! How can I have a son when my wife is barren, and I have become extremely old?”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

An angel replied, “So will it be! Your Lord says, ‘It is easy for Me, just as I created you before, when you were nothing!’”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Zachariah said, “My Lord! Grant me a sign.” He responded, “Your sign is that you will not ˹be able to˺ speak to people for three nights, despite being healthy.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

So he came out to his people from the sanctuary, signalling to them to glorify ˹Allah˺ morning and evening.
