2Mention of the mercy of your Rabb to His servant Zachariah!

3Once upon a time, he called out his Rabb in secret. 4-6He said: “My Rabb! Truly my bones have weakened and loosened and my head have flamed up with so many grey hair. But never have I been unhappy in my supplication to You. And I truly am worried about my successors, my relatives/my cousins. My wife is infertile. Therefore, bestow me from Yourself a familiar person who will help, protect, who will inherit me and inherit the family of Yakub [Jacob]. My Rabb! Make him acceptable for You/Make him the one with whom everyone will be pleased!”.

7O Zachariah! Surely We give you the tidings of a boy – whose name is Yahya [John] –. That name have We given to none before.

8Zachariah said: “My Rabb! My wife is infertile and I am excessively old now, so how can I have a boy?”.

9Allah said: “So will it be! Your Rabb said, ‘it is easy for Me. I formed you before this while you were nothing’”.

10Zachariah said: “My Rabb! Give me a sign”. Allah said: “Your sign is that you will not speak with the people for three nights although you are sound”.

11Then, Zachariah came out from his private chamber to his people and gestured them to purify Allah from all deficiencies.

12-15O Yahya [John]! Take the book tightly!” We gave him judgment, kindness and purity from Us while he was a person who had left the corrupted religion, and he was the one who verily entered under guardianship of Allah. And he was the one who treated his mother and father very well. And he was not a tyrant and disobedient. And Salam [health, peace, happiness…] be upon him on the day he was born, on the day he will die and on the day he will be resurrected!

16Mention Mary in the Book! When she left her family/relatives and fled to a place in the east.

17Then, she secluded herself from her family/relatives and We sent her our soul/divine message134 and the messenger who brought our soul/divine message to her gave her an example of a perfect human being.

18Mary said: “I seek refuge in Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created] from you. If you are a person who has entered under the guardianship of Allah/if you are takiy…”.

19The messenger/Zachariah said: “I am only the messenger of your Rabb to bestow you a pure boy”.

20Mary said: “How can I have a boy? No human has ever touched me. And I am not an outlaw/unchaste person”.

21The messenger said: “Thus will it be! Your Rabb said: ‘It is easy for me to bestow a child without a father. And We will make him an evidence/a sign and a mercy to the people from Us”. And thus it was a matter decreed.

22Then Mary conceived the boy. And then she fled to a faraway place with him.

23Then labor pains forced her to lean on a date tree trunk. She said: “I wish I had died before this and had become a person who was forgotten completely”.

24-26Then the one who is below her; Zachariah called her: “Do not grieve, Your Rabb made a water stream beneath you. Shake the date trunk towards yourself so that ripe, fresh dates will fall upon you. Then eat and drink, and be glad. And if you see anyone from among humans, say: “I have vowed a fast for Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created], so I will not speak with anyone today”.

27,28Thereafter, Mary carried her boy to her people. Her people said: “O Mary! Truly, you have done a thing unseen. O sister of Aaron! Your father was not a bad person and your mother was not an outlaw/unchaste person”.

29Them Mary pointed to him; the one who was below her during the childbirth; Zachariah, and asked him to explain the situation. Zachariah guaranteed that Mary had given birth to the child without committing unlawful sexual intercourse and asked them to raise the child at the temple. They said: “How can we, chiefs of our people, speak to a child who has not reached the age of ability to distinguish between good and evil/How do chiefs speak to a child who has not reached the age of ability to distinguish between good and evil yet?”.

34This is Jesus [Isa], son of Mary, about whom they have been disputing according to the word of truth, and who says: 30Surely, I am the servant of Allah. He has given me the book and made me a prophet. 31He has rendered me blessed wherever I am. He has given me Salah [supporting financially and spiritually; striving to enlighten the community] and zaqah/tax as a liability as long as I live. 32And He has made me kind to my mother. And He has not made me a tyrant, an unhappy one. 33And Salam [health, peace, happiness…] be upon me, on the day I was born, on the day I will die, and on the day I will be resurrected again as alive. 36And indeed, Allah is my Rabb, and He is your Rabb as well. So, worship Him, this is the straight path”.135

35It is not for Allah to take a child. He is purified from this. When He decrees something, He only says “Be” and it immediately is.

37Then, the contradicting groups which emerged from among them differed. Woe to those infidels, those who consciously deny the divinity of Allah and the fact that He is Rabb from the witnessing, trial of that great day!

38What they will see and hear on the day they will come to Us! But those who do wrong; act against their own good by associating others with Allah, they are in an explicit astray today.

39And you, warn them of that great day of regret, when the command will be fulfilled while they are unaware, apathetic and they do not believe!

40Indeed, We will inherit the earth and the people on it/We will remain while they are gone. And they will be returned only to Us.

(44/19; Maryam/35, 37-40)

41Mention/remind Abraham [Ibrahim] as well in the Book. Indeed, he was a righteous person, he was a prophet.

42-45Once he said to his father: “O my father! Why do you worship those which do not hear, do not see and do not benefit you at all? O my father! Surely, a knowledge which did not come to you has come to me. Therefore, follow me so I may guide you to a straight path. O my father! Do not worship satan. Indeed satan disobeyed Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created]. O my father! Surely I fear that a punishment from Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created] touches you and you become for satan a familiar who guides, protects and helps”.

46His father said: “O Abraham! Do you turn away from my idols? If you do not desist, indeed I will stone you to death. Now, go away from me for a long while!”.

47,48Abraham said: “Salam [health, peace, happiness…] be upon you, I will ask my Rabb for forgiveness for you. Surely, He is the One Who gives bounties to me. And I turn away from you and that which you worship from among those that are inferior to Allah. And I will invoke my Rabb. I expect that I will not be unhappy in my invocation to my Rabb”.

49Then, when Abraham got away from his people and that which they worshipped from among those that are inferior to Allah, We bestowed him Isaac and Jacob. We made all of them prophets.

50And We gave them bounties from Our mercy. And We made for them a great reputation of honor, righteousness.

(44/19; Maryam/41-50)

51And mention/remind Moses as well in the Book. Indeed, he was purified. And he was a messenger, a prophet.

52We called him from the side of the Mount Tur, the most auspicious and brought him close to be in a special conversation. 53And out of Our mercy, We gave him his brother Aaron as a prophet.

54And mention/remind Ishmael in the Book. Indeed, he was true to his promise, he was a messenger, a prophet. 55And he ordered his family/people around him Salah [supporting financially and spiritually; striving to enlighten the community] and zaqah/tax. And his Rabb was pleased with him.

56And mention/remind Idris [Enoch] in the Book. Indeed, he was a righteous person, a prophet. 57And We raised him to an high place.

58So those were the prophets whom We guided and chose from the descendants of Adam, from those We carried with Noah, from the lineage of Abraham and Israel; those who were prophets to whom Allah bestowed blessings. When the Ayat of Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created] were recited to them, they fell in prostration, weeping, submitting .

(44/19; Maryam/51-58)

Division: 113

59-61A bad generation came after them, and they took away Salah [supporting financially and spiritually; striving to enlighten the community] from their lives. And they followed their desires. Therefore, they all, except those of them who have repented and believed and done righteous deeds, will be punished for their transgression. Then those of them who repent and believe and do righteous deeds will enter Jannah [Heaven/Paradise]; to the gardens of Eden which Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created] promised to His servants – even though they did not see – and they will not be treated unjustly at all. Surely, His promise will certainly be fulfilled.

62There they will not hear any vain talk. They will only hear “Salam [health, peace, happiness]!”. They will always have their provisions for themselves therein.

63This is Jannah [Heaven/Paradise] which We will give to our servants who entered under the guardianship of Allah as inheritance/effortlessly and being its last owners.

(44/19; Maryam/59-63)

64And we, the Ayat of the Qur’an,136 descend only by the command of your Rabb. All that which passed and will come and all that between them belong to Him. And your Rabb does not forget. 65He is Rabb of the heavens/universe, the earth and all that is between. Then, worship Him and be patient in worshipping Him. Do you know anyone else who is named with His name?

(44/19; Maryam/64-65)

Division: 115

66And that human says: “When I have died, will I really be brought forth alive?”.

67And does that human not think that We truly formed him, while he was nothing before?

68Therefore, by your Rabb, We will definitely gather them and the devils. Then We will certainly have them ready on their knees at the outer edge of Jahannah [Hell]/gathering place.

69Then, We will surely separate from each group, those who were most harsh in standing against Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created].

70Then, indeed We know better who deserves most to be thrown into there.

71And as a definitive decree that your Rabb has taken upon Himself, there is none of you that will not stop by the outer edge of Jahannah [Hell]/gathering place.

72Thereafter, We will save those who entered under the guardianship of Allah. We will leave those who did wrong; acted against their own good by associating others with Allah on their knees at the outer edge of Jahannah [Hell]/gathering place.

(44/19; Maryam/66-72)

Division: 116

73And when Our Ayat were recited to them explicitly, those infidels; those who consciously denied the divinity of Allah and the fact that He is Rabb said to the believers: “Which of these two parties [the believers and those who consciously deny the divinity of Allah and the fact that He is Rabb] is better in position and status and better in terms of persons/organizations they interact?”.

74Yet before them We manipulated/destroyed many generations who were much better in wealth and glory.

75Say: “Whoever is in astray, Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created] will extend for him/give him respite. At the end, when they see what they have been promised [the punishment or Qiyamat [Resurrection]], they will know who is worse in position-status and who is weaker in military [in support, power].

76And Allah increases the guidance for those who follow the righteous path they are guided. And persistent amendatory deeds are better in the sight of your Rabb in terms of reward and better in consequence.

(44/19; Maryam/73-76)

Division: 117

77Then, have you ever seen/thought about the one who denies Our Ayat, evidences/signs, the divinity of Allah and the fact that He is Rabb and who says: “Of course, wealth and children will be granted”?”.

78-80Has that denier received information about the matters he would not know, comprehend; or has he taken a promise from Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created]? Certainly not as he thinks! We record that which he says and extend from the punishment extensively for him. And We will inherit what he says/last word and implementation belong to Us and he will come to Us alone.

81And they have taken idols from among those that are inferior to Allah so there may be a glory, an honor and a power for themselves.

82Certainly not as they think! Those idols that they have taken will not accept their worship and will be opponents against them.

83Have you not seen/thought? Surely, We sent devils upon those infidels; those who consciously deny the divinity of Allah and the fact that He is Rabb. They provoke them constantly.

(44/19; Maryam/77-83)

Division: 118

84Then do not haste for their loss. Indeed, We count for them a count.

85On that day, We will gather those who entered under the guardianship of Allah to Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created] as delegations with rides; with the magnificence of a messenger going to the king.

86And We will drive the criminals to Jahannah [Hell] in thirst.

87They will not have any help-assistance except the one who received a guarantee from Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created], – then such a guarantee has not been given to anyone –.

88And they said: “Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created] has taken a child”.

89Indeed, you have said an evil thing.

90,91The heavens/universe almost ruptured, the earth split open and the mountains collapsed in devastation because of this; for they attributed a child to Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created].

92And, it does not befit Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created] to take a child. 93All who is in the heavens/universe and on the earth will come to Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created] only as a servant.

94Surely, Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created] surrounds them and keeps account of them, one by one. 95And on the day of Qiyamat [Resurrection], all of them will come to Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created] alone.

98And We manipulated/destroyed many generations before them. Do you perceive any person from them? Or do you hear a little sound that belongs to them?137

96Surely, as for those believers who have done amendatory deeds; Rahman [Allah; the One Who shows great mercy on the earth to all living beings that He created] will make an affection for them.

97Indeed, We have made the Qur’an easy in your own language so that you may bring good tidings to those who have entered under the guardianship of Allah and warn those people who are obstinate.
