In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
(19:2) [This is] a mention of the mercy of your Lord to His servant Zechariah
(19:3) When he called to his Lord a private supplication.
(19:4) He said, “My Lord, indeed my bones have weakened, and my head has filled with white, and never have I been in my supplication to You, my Lord, unhappy.
(19:5) And indeed, I fear the successors after me, and my wife has been barren, so give me from Yourself an heir
(19:6) Who will inherit me and inherit from the family of Jacob. And make him, my Lord, pleasing [to You].”
(19:7) [He was told], “O Zechariah, indeed We give you good tidings of a boy whose name will be John. We have not assigned to any before [this] name.”
(19:8) He said, “My Lord, how will I have a boy when my wife has been barren and I have reached extreme old age?”
(19:9) [An angel] said, “Thus [it will be]; your Lord says, ‘It is easy for Me, for I created you before, while you were nothing.’ ”
(19:10) [Zechariah] said, “My Lord, make for me a sign.” He said, “Your sign is that you will not speak to the people for three nights, [being] sound.”
(19:11) So he came out to his people from the prayer chamber and signaled to them to exalt [ Allah ] in the morning and afternoon.
(19:12) [Allah] said, “O John, take the Scripture with determination.” And We gave him judgement [while yet] a boy
(19:13) And affection from Us and purity, and he was fearing of Allah
(19:14) And dutiful to his parents, and he was not a disobedient tyrant.
(19:15) And peace be upon him the day he was born and the day he dies and the day he is raised alive.
(3:35) when the wife of ‘Imran said, “My Lord, indeed I have pledged to You what is in my womb, consecrated [for Your service], so accept this from me. Indeed, You are the Hearing, the Knowing.”
(3:36) But when she delivered her, she said, “My Lord, I have delivered a female.” And Allah was most knowing of what she delivered, “And the male is not like the female. And I have named her Mary, and I seek refuge for her in You and [for] her descendants from Satan, the expelled [from the mercy of Allah].”
(3:37) So her Lord accepted her with good acceptance and caused her to grow in a good manner and put her in the care of Zechariah. Every time Zechariah entered upon her in the prayer chamber, he found with her provision. He said, “O Mary, from where is this [coming] to you?” She said, “It is from Allah . Indeed, Allah provides for whom He wills without account.”
(3:38) At that, Zechariah called upon his Lord, saying, “My Lord, grant me from Yourself a good offspring. Indeed, You are the Hearer of supplication.”
(3:39) So the angels called him while he was standing in prayer in the chamber, “Indeed, Allah gives you good tidings of John, confirming a word from Allah and [who will be] honorable, abstaining [from women], and a prophet from among the righteous.”
(3:40) He said, “My Lord, how will I have a boy when I have reached old age and my wife is barren?” The angel said, “Such is Allah ; He does what He wills.”
(3:41) He said, “My Lord, make for me a sign.” He Said, “Your sign is that you will not [be able to] speak to the people for three days except by gesture. And remember your Lord much and exalt [Him with praise] in the evening and the morning.”
(21:89) And [mention] Zechariah, when he called to his Lord, “My Lord, do not leave me alone [with no heir], while you are the best of inheritors.”
(21:90) So We responded to him, and We gave to him John, and amended for him his wife. Indeed, they used to hasten to good deeds and supplicate Us in hope and fear, and they were to Us humbly submissive.
