Lord! I have never been unsuccessful in my prayer to Thee:
surely I fear my cousins after me, and my wife is barren, therefore grant me from Thyself
should inherit me and inherit from the children of Yaqoub, and make him, my Lord, one in
whom Thou art well pleased.
Zakariya! surely We give you good news of a boy whose name shall be Yahya: We have not
made before anyone his equal.
said: O my Lord! when shall I have a son, and my wife is barren, and I myself have reached
indeed the extreme degree of old age?
said: So shall it be, your Lord says: It is easy to Me, and indeed I created you before,
when you were nothing.
said: My Lord! give me a sign. He said: Your sign is that you will not be able to speak to
the people three nights while in sound health.
he went forth to his people from his place of worship, then he made known to them that
they should glorify (Allah) morning and evening.
Yahya! take hold of the Book with strength, and We granted him wisdom while yet a child,
tenderness from Us and purity, and he was one who guarded (against evil),
dutiful to his parents, and he was not insolent, disobedient.
peace on him on the day he was born, and on the day he dies, and on the day he is raised
mention Marium in the Book when she drew aside from her family to an eastern place;
she took a veil (to screen herself) from them; then We sent to her Our spirit, and there
appeared to her a well-made man.
said: Surely I fly for refuge from you to the Beneficent God, if you are one guarding
said: I am only a messenger of your Lord: That I will give you a pure boy.
said: When shall I have a boy and no mortal has yet touched me, nor have I been unchaste?
said: Even so; your Lord says: It is easy to Me: and that We may make him a sign to men
and a mercy from Us, and it is a matter which has been decreed.
she conceived him; then withdrew herself with him to a remote place.
the throes (of childbirth) compelled her to betake herself to the trunk of a palm tree.
She said: Oh, would that I had died before this, and had been a thing quite forgotten!
(the child) called out to her from beneath her: Grieve not, surely your Lord has made a
stream to flow beneath you;
shake towards you the trunk of the palm tree, it will drop on you fresh ripe dates:
eat and drink and refresh the eye. Then if you see any mortal, say: Surely I have vowed a
fast to the Beneficent God, so I shall not speak to any man today.
she came to her people with him, carrying him (with her). They said: O Marium! surely you
have done a strange thing.
sister of Haroun! your father was not a bad man, nor, was your mother an unchaste woman.
she pointed to him. They said: How should we speak to one who was a child in the cradle?
said: Surely I am a servant of Allah; He has given me the Book and made me a prophet;
He has made me blessed wherever I may be, and He has enjoined on me prayer and poor-rate
so long as I live;
dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me insolent, unblessed;
peace on me on the day I was born, and on the day I die, and on the day I am raised to
is Isa, son of Marium; (this is) the saying of truth about which they dispute.
beseems not Allah that He should take to Himself a ! son, glory to be Him; when He has
decreed a matter He only says to it "Be," and it is.
surely Allah is my Lord and your Lord, therefore serve Him; this is the right path.
parties from among them disagreed with each other, so woe to those who disbelieve, because
of presence on a great day.
clearly shall they hear and how clearly shall they see on the day when they come to Us;
but the unjust this day are in manifest error.
warn them of the day of intense regret, when the matter shall have been decided; and they
are (now) in negligence and they do not believe.
Surely We inherit the earth and all those who are on it, and to Us they shall be returned.
mention Ibrahim in the Book; surely he was a truthful man, a prophet.
he said to his father; O my father! why do you worship what neither hears nor sees, nor
does it avail you in the least:
[19.43] O my
father! truly the knowledge has come to me which has not come to you, therefore follow me,
I will guide you on a right path:
[19.44] O my
father! serve not the Shaitan, surely the Shaitan is disobedient to the Beneficent God:
[19.45] O my
father! surely I fear that a punishment from the Beneficent God should afflict you so that
you should be a friend of the Shaitan.
said: Do you dislike my gods, O Ibrahim? If you do not desist I will certainly revile you,
and leave me for a time.
said: Peace be on you, I will pray to my Lord to forgive you; surely He is ever
Affectionate to me:
I will withdraw from you and what you call on besides Allah, and I will call upon my Lord;
may be I shall not remain unblessed in calling upon my Lord.
when he withdrew from them and what they worshiped besides Allah, We gave to him Ishaq and
Yaqoub, and each one of them We made a prophet.
We granted to them of Our mercy, and We left (behind them) a truthful mention of eminence
mention Musa in the Book; surely he was one purified, and he was an apostle, a prophet.
We called to him from the blessed side of the mountain, and We made him draw nigh, holding
communion (with Us).
We gave to him out of Our mercy his brother Haroun a prophet.
mention Ismail in the Book; surely he was truthful in (his) promise, and he was an
apostle, a prophet.
he enjoined on his family prayer and almsgiving, and was one in whom his Lord was well
mention Idris in the Book; surely he was a truthful man, a prophet,
We raised him high in Heaven.
These are they on whom Allah bestowed favors, from among the prophets of the seed of Adam,
and of those whom We carried with Nuh, and of the seed of Ibrahim and Israel, and of those
whom We guided and chose; when the communications of the Beneficent God were recited to
them, they fell down making obeisance and weeping.
there came after them an evil generation, who neglected prayers and followed and sensual
desires, so they win meet perdition,
Except such as repent and believe and do good, these shall enter the garden, and they
shall not be dealt with unjustly in any way:
gardens of perpetuity which the Beneficent God has promised to His servants while unseen;
surely His promise shall come to pass.
shall not hear therein any vain discourse, but only: Peace, and they shall have their
sustenance therein morning and evening.
is the garden which We cause those of Our servants to inherit who guard (against evil).
we do not descend but by the command of your Lord; to Him belongs whatever is before us
and whatever is behind us and whatever is between these, and your Lord is not forgetful.
Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, so serve Him and be patient in
His service. Do you know any one equal to Him?

not man remember that We created him before, when he was nothing?
by your Lord! We will most certainly gather them together and the Shaitans, then shall We
certainly cause them to be present round hell on their knees.
We will most certainly draw forth from every sect of them him who is most exorbitantly
rebellious against the Beneficent God.
Again We do certainly know best those who deserve most to be burned therein.
there is not one of you but shall come to it; this is an unavoidable decree of your Lord.
We will deliver those who guarded (against evil), and We will leave the unjust therein on
when Our clear communications are recited to them, those who disbelieve say to those who
believe: Which of the two parties is best in abiding and best in assembly?
how many of the generations have We destroyed before them who were better in respect of
goods and outward appearance!
As for him who remains in error, the Beneficent God will surely prolong his length of
days, until they see what they were threatened with, either the punishment or the hour;
then they shall know who is in more evil plight and weaker in forces.
Allah increases in guidance those who go aright; and ever-abiding good works are with your
Lord best in recompense and best in yielding fruit.
you, then, seen him who disbelieves in Our communications and says: I shall certainly be
given wealth and children?
he gained knowledge of the unseen, or made a covenant with the Beneficent God?
no means! We write down what he says, and We will lengthen to him the length of the

they say: The Beneficent God has taken (to Himself) a son.
Certainly you have made an abominable assertion:
heavens may almost be rent thereat, and the earth cleave asunder, and the mountains fall
down in pieces,
they ascribe a son to the Beneficent God.
it is not worthy of the Beneficent God that He should take (to Himself) a son.
There is no one in the heavens and the earth but will come to the Beneficent God as a

Surely (as for) those who believe and do good deeds for them will Allah bring about love.
We have only made it easy in your tongue that you may give good news thereby to those who
guard (against evil) and warn thereby a vehemently contentious people.
how many a generation have We destroyed before them! Do you see any one of them or hear a
sound of them?
