The narratives concerning  Zakariyya, Alaihi Salaam, in the Quran, and the events leading to the birth of Yahya Alaihi Salaam, John the Baptist, On whom be Peace.

ذِكْرُ رَحْمَتِ رَبِّكَ عَبْدَهُ زَكَرِيَّآ

(2. A reminder of the mercy of your Lord to His servant Zakariyya.)

إِذْ نَادَى رَبَّهُ نِدَآءً خَفِيّاً

(3. When he called his Lord [with] a call in secret.)

قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّى وَهَنَ الْعَظْمُ مِنِّى وَاشْتَعَلَ الرَّأْسُ شَيْباً وَلَمْ أَكُنْ بِدُعَآئِكَ رَبِّ شَقِيّاً

(4. He said: “My Lord! Indeed my bones have grown feeble, and gray hair has Ashta`al(flared) on my head, and I have never been unblessed in my invocation to You, O my Lord!”)

وَإِنِّي خِفْتُ الْمَوَالِىَ مِن وَرَآئِى وَكَانَتِ امْرَأَتِى عَاقِرًا فَهَبْ لِى مِن لَّدُنْكَ وَلِيّاً

(5. “And verily, I fear Mawali(successors) after me, and my wife is barren. So give me from Yourself an heir.”)

يَرِثُنِى وَيَرِثُ مِنْ ءَالِ يَعْقُوبَ وَاجْعَلْهُ رَبِّ رَضِيّاً

(6. “Who shall inherit me, and inherit (also) the posterity of Ya`qub. And make him, my Lord, one with whom You are well-pleased!”)

يزَكَرِيَّآ إِنَّا نُبَشِّرُكَ بِغُلَـمٍ اسْمُهُ يَحْيَى لَمْ نَجْعَل لَّهُ مِن قَبْلُ سَمِيّاً

(7. (Allah said:) “O Zakariyya! Verily, We give you the good news of a son, whose name will be Yahya. We have given that name to none before (him).”)

قَالَ رَبِّ أَنَّى يَكُونُ لِى غُلَـمٌ وَكَانَتِ امْرَأَتِى عَاقِراً وَقَدْ بَلَغْتُ مِنَ الْكِبَرِ عِتِيّاً

(8. He said: “My Lord! How can I have a son, when my wife is barren, and I have reached the extreme old age.”)

قَالَ كَذَلِكَ قَالَ رَبُّكَ هُوَ عَلَىَّ هَيِّنٌ وَقَدْ خَلَقْتُكَ مِن قَبْلُ وَلَمْ تَكُ شَيْئاً

(9. He said: “Thus your Lord says: `It is easy for Me. Certainly I have created you before, when you had been nothing!”’)

قَالَ رَبِّ اجْعَل لِى ءَايَةً قَالَ ءَايَتُكَ أَلاَّ تُكَلِّمَ النَّاسَ ثَلَـثَ لَيَالٍ سَوِيّاً

(10. He [Zakariyya] said: “My Lord! Appoint for me a sign.” He said: “Your sign is that you shall not speak unto mankind for three nights”( though having no bodily defect.))

فَخَرَجَ عَلَى قَوْمِهِ مِنَ الْمِحْرَابِ فَأَوْحَى إِلَيْهِمْ أَن سَبِّحُواْ بُكْرَةً وَعَشِيّاً

(11. Then he came out to his people from the Mihrab(prayer chamber) and he indicated to them by signs to glorify [Allah] in the morning and in the afternoon.)

ييَحْيَى خُذِ الْكِتَـبَ بِقُوَّةٍ وَآتَيْنَاهُ الْحُكْمَ صَبِيّاً

(12. (It was said to his son): “O Yahya! Hold fast to the Scripture.” And We gave him wisdom while yet a child.)

وَحَنَانًا مِّن لَّدُنَّا وَزَكَوةً وَكَانَ تَقِيًّا

(13. And Hananan(affection) from Us, and Zakatan(purity), and he was pious,)

وَبَرًّا بِوَلِدَيْهِ وَلَمْ يَكُن جَبَّاراً عَصِيّاً

(14. And dutiful to his parents, and he was not arrogant or disobedient.)

وَسَلَـمٌ عَلَيْهِ يَوْمَ وُلِدَ وَيَوْمَ يَمُوتُ وَيَوْمَ يُبْعَثُ حَياً

(15. And Salam (peace) be on him the day he was born, and the day he dies, and the day he will be raised up to life (again)!)

Surah 19 Maryam, Verse 1-15

All Praise belongs to Allah, Glorified and Praised.
