Revealed at Mecca, Verses: 98 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful
  1. Kaf Ha Ya Ain Sad (K.H.Y.A.S.);(1)
  2. the mention of thy Lord's mercy to His servant Zachariah;(2)
  3. when he called upon his Lord in low tones.(3)
  4. He said, `my Lord, my bones are enfeebled, and my head is aflame with age, yet in calling on Thee, my Lord, I have never been unlucky.(4)
  5. And I fear my kinsmen after I am gone, and my wife is barren, so grant me from Thee a heir,(5)
  6. who shall inherit me and inherit the House of Jacob; and, my Lord, make him pleasing.'(6)
  7. `O Zachariah, We give thee good news of a boy whose name shall be John. We have not made any worthy of his name before.'(7)
  8. He said, `my Lord, how shall I have a son when my wife is barren, and I have reached extreme of old age.'(8)
  9. He said, `so it will be; thy Lord says, `it is easy for Me, for I created thee before, when thou wast nothing'.(9)
  10. He said, `my Lord, appoint for me a Sign?' He said, `thy sign is that thou, though normal, shalt not speak to men for three nights.'(10)
  11. So he came out to his people from the chamber, and made signal to them, `extol God at dawn and at night'.(11)
  12. `O John, take the Book with strength'. And We gave him Judgement, while yet a child,(12)
  13. and a tenderness and purity from us; and he was godfearing(13)
  14. and kind to his parents, and he was not arrogant or defiant.(14)
  15. And `peace be upon him, the day he was born, the day he dies, and the day he shall be raised to life.'(15)
  16. And mention in the Book Mary, when she withdrew from her people to an eastern place,(16)
  17. and she took a veil apart from them; then We sent to her Our Spirit and he appeared to her a normal man.(17)
  18. She said, ``I take refuge in the All-merciful from thee, if thou indeed art godfearing.' (18)
  19. He said, `I am but a messenger of thy Lord that I may bestow on thee a pure boy'.(19)
  20. She said, `how shall I have a boy when no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste'.(20)
  21. He said, `so it shall be; thy Lord says, `it is easy for Me and that We may make him a Sign for men and a mercy from Us, and it is a matter decreed.'(21)
  22. So she conceived him and withdrew with him to a distant place.(22)
  23. Then the birthpangs drove her to the trunk of the palm tree. She said, `would that I had died before this, and become a thing forgotten'.(23)
  24. And one called her from below her, `do not grieve; thy Lord has set a rivulet below thee.(24)
  25. And shake to thee the trunk of the palm tree, and it will drop on thee fresh ripe dates.(25)
  26. So eat and drink and cool the eyes. And if thou seest any mortal, say, `I have vowed a fast to the All-merciful, so today, I shall not speak to any man.'(26)
  27. Then, carrying him, she brought him to her people. They said, `Mary, thou hast surely committed a monstrous thing.(27)
  28. O sister of Aaron, thy father was not a wicked man, and thy mother was not unchaste.'(28)
  29. So she pointed to him. They said, `how shall we speak to one who is an infant in the cradle?'(29)
  30. He spoke, `I am God's servant; He has given me the Book and made me a Prophet,(30)
  31. and He has made me blessed wherever I may be, and He has enjoined on me the Prayer and the Alms-giving as long as I live,(31)
  32. and to be kind to my mother; and He has not made me arrogant and unlucky.(32)
  33. And peace be upon me, the day I was born, the day I die and the day I shall be raised alive.'(33)
  34. That is Jesus, son of Mary, in word of truth in which they doubt.(34)
  35. It is not for God that He should take to Him a son __ He is Holy. When He decrees a thing, He only says to it, `be', and it is.(35)
  36. And (he said) `God is my Lord and your Lord, so serve Him __ this is a straight path.'(36)
  37. But the sects have differed among them; so woe to those who disbelieve for the witnessing of a Mighty Day.(37)
  38. How well they will hear and see on the day they come to Us! But, today the wrong-doers are clearly astray.(38)
  39. And warn them of the Day of Regret, when the matter shall be decided; but they are heedless and they do not believe.(39)
  40. We ourselves shall inherit the earth and all those that are upon it, and to Us they shall be returned.(40)
  41. And mention in the Book Abraham; he was surely a truthful man, a Prophet.(41)
  42. When he said to his father, `father, why dost thou serve that which neither hears nor sees, nor avails thee anything.(42)
  43. Father, there has come to me such knowledge as has not come to thee, so follow me and I shall guide thee to an even path.(43)
  44. Father, do not serve the Devil; the Devil is surely a rebel to the All-merciful.(44)
  45. Father, I fear that a punishment from the All-merciful shall afflict thee so that thou shalt become a comrade of the Devil.'(45)
  46. He said, `art thou averse to my gods, Abraham? If thou dost not give over, I will stone thee; so leave me for some time.'(46)
  47. He said, `peace be upon thee! I shall pray my Lord for thy forgiveness; He is surely gracious to me.(47)
  48. And I go apart from you and what you call upon, apart from God, and I will call upon my Lord; perhaps I shall not be unlucky in calling upon my Lord.'(48)
  49. So when he went apart from them and what they were serving, apart from God, We bestowed upon him Isaac and Jacob; and each We made a Prophet.(49)
  50. And We bestowed upon them Our mercy, and We made for them a renowned tongue of truth.(50)
  51. And mention in the Book Moses; he was specially chosen, and he was a Messenger, a Prophet.(51)
  52. And We called to him from the right side of the Mount, and We drew him near in communion.(52)
  53. And, out of Our mercy, We bestowed on him his brother Aaron, a Prophet.(53)
  54. And mention in the Book Ishmael; he was true to his promises, and he was a Messenger, a Prophet.(54)
  55. And he used to bid his people the Prayer and the Alms-giving, and he was pleasing to his Lord.(55)
  56. And mention in the book Idris; he was a true man, a Prophet;(56)
  57. and We raised him up to a high place.(57)
  58. Those are the ones whom God blessed, among the Prophets of the off-spring of Adam, and of those We bore with Noah, and of the offspring of Abraham and Israel, and of those We guided and chose. When the signs of the All-merciful were recited to them they fell down prostrate, weeping.(58)
  59. Then there succeeded after them successions that wasted the Prayer and followed lusts; they shall soon meet perversion,(59)
  60. except those who repent and believe and do righteous deeds; they shall enter Paradise and shall not be wronged in the least;(60)
  61. Gardens of Eternity that the All-merciful has promised His servants in the unseen; His promise is surely fulfilled.(61)
  62. They will not hear any non-sense there, but only greetings of peace; and they shall have their provision there at dawn and evening.(62)
  63. That is Paradise which We shall give in inheritance to such of Our servants who are godfearing.(63)
  64. And we do not come down but at the command of thy Lord; to Him belongs what is before us, what is behind us and what is between that; and thy Lord is never forgetful;(64)
  65. Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, so serve Him, and be steadfast in His service; dost thou know anyone worthy of His Name?(65)
  66. And Man says, `when I am dead, shall I be brought forth alive?'(66)
  67. But does man not remember that We created him before, when he was nothing?(67)
  68. So, by thy Lord, We will surely muster them and the devils, then We shall bring them about the Hell on their knees;(68)
  69. then We shall draw forth from every party such of them as were most hardened in disdain of the All-merciful.(69)
  70. Then, We surely know very well those most deserving to burn in it.(70)
  71. And there is none among you, but he shall arrive at it; that is definite and decreed with thy Lord.(71)
  72. Then, We shall deliver those who fear God, and leave the wrongdoers there on their knees.(72)
  73. And when Our clear signs are recited to them, the unbelievers say to the Believers, `which of the two parties is better in position and fairer in company?'(73)
  74. But how many a generation have We destroyed before them, who were better in gear and outward show?(74)
  75. Say, `whoso is astray, let the All-merciful prolong his term long; till when they see what they are threatened with, whether the punishment or the Hour, they will know who is worse in position and weaker in hosts.'(75)
  76. And those who are guided, God increases them in guidance; and the abiding things, the deeds of righteousness, are better in reward with thy Lord and better in return.(76)
  77. And hast thou seen him who disbelieves in Our signs and says, `I shall surely be given wealth and children?'(77)
  78. Has he observed the unseen or taken a covenant with the All-merciful?(78)
  79. No indeed! We shall write down what he says, and We shall prolong for him the punishment,(79)
  80. and We shall inherit from him what he says, and he shall come to Us alone.(80)
  81. And they have taken to them gods, apart from God, that they might be for them a might(81)
  82. No indeed! they will deny their service, and shall be pitted against them.(82)
  83. Hast thou not seen how We have sent the devils over the unbelievers to incite them?(83)
  84. So be not in haste against them; We are only numbering them.(84)
  85. On the day that We muster the godfearing to the All-merciful as guests, (85)
  86. and drive the sinners to Hell in a herd;(86)
  87. they will not have any power of intercession, except him who has made a covenant with the All-merciful.(87)
  88. And they say, `the All-merciful has taken to Himself a son.'(88)
  89. You have indeed advanced a hideous thing!(89)
  90. The heavens may be rent of it, and the earth split asunder, and the mountains fall down crashing,(90)
  91. for that they have attributed to the All-merciful a son.(91)
  92. It behoves not the All-merciful that He should take a son.(92)
  93. None is there in the heavens and the earth but he comes to the All-merciful as a servant.(93)
  94. He has counted them and He has numbered them exactly;(94)
  95. and, on the Day of Resurrection, everyone of them shall come to Him all alone.(95)
  96. Those who believe and do righteous deeds, the All-merciful shall assign to them love.(96)
  97. So We have made it easy by thy tongue, that, thereby thou mayest give good news to the godfearing, and warn a stubborn people.(97)
  98. And how many a generation We have destroyed before them! Dost thou perceive anyone of them, or hear of them a wispier?(98)
