بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ كهيعص * ذِكْرُ رَحْمَتِ رَبِّكَ عَبْدَهُ زَكَرِيَّا

Kaf­ Ha­Ya­’Ain­Sad. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. [Surat Maryam 1] (This is) a mention of the mercy of your Lord to His slave Zakariya (Zachariah).[Surat Maryam 2]

In the name of the Lord God whose name is Allah, The most Gracious and the Dispenser of Grace.

Kaaf ha yaa ainnn saad. There is no meaning given by our Rasul about this verse. So it meant… if Allah dont want u to know then you dont know. It also meant that many questions that would arise from this surah… no one can answer. Eg.. how was mukjizat/miracle created… no one knows. The arc of covernance.. where is it? No one knows Which meant… dont look for answers that Allah did not want to tell u. If not, u will be searching for that and… FORGET the main issue… ie to learn Q n Hadith (H).

This happen to christians, tarikats and tasauf… i ll explain later . Allah tells u all about His prophet Zachariah An account of the grace when Allah thy sustainer bestowed / tells u about His servant Zachariah


Zachariah was 120 years old.. hadith… his wife were barren, and also old.. he had no children. He was concerned about his religion.. no one was capable of replacing him when he died. This was his doa.This story about doa is also for us.. if not Allah wont be telling u about the doa. This part about the doa by nabi Zachariah is the tafsir of…. Wa iyya kanas tain.. alfatihah

إِذْ نَادَىٰ رَبَّهُ نِدَاءً خَفِيًّا

When he called out his Lord (Allah) a call in secret, [Surat Maryam 3]

Allah tell u to believe in Him. Ie when he called/doa to his Sustainer. In a suttle voice… Not loudly.. pleading to his Lord Allah….. at night.. after/during solat.

قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّي وَهَنَ الْعَظْمُ مِنِّي وَاشْتَعَلَ الرَّأْسُ شَيْبًا وَلَمْ أَكُنْ بِدُعَائِكَ رَبِّ شَقِيًّا

Saying: “My Lord! Indeed my bones have grown feeble, and grey hair has spread on my head, And I have never been unblest in my invocation to You, O my Lord! [Surat Maryam 4]

He prayed/doa.. O my Sustainer/Rab. My bones have become feeble or brittle, and my head glistens with gray hair…He was 120 years… a very old man..He was putting a case, a plead for aceptance of doa.

Then he continue

But never yet that O my Lord God, that my prayer/doa to You / Thee remained unanswered. His doa were always being answered. And he had been doing the doa for a very long time. He always believe that his doa will be answered. One day he visited maryam and find food with her. He asked maryam, who gave u these food. Maryam.answered… min indillah… from Allah..There and then he knew that his prayer can be also answered.

Zachariah as further pleaded to his Lord

وَإِنِّي خِفْتُ الْمَوَالِيَ مِنْ وَرَائِي وَكَانَتِ امْرَأَتِي عَاقِرًا فَهَبْ لِي مِنْ لَدُنْكَ وَلِيًّا

“And Verily! I fear my relatives after me, since my wife is barren. So give me from Yourself an heir, [Surat Maryam 5]

And now O my Lord Allah, I am afraid that after I died , what my kinsfolk/ followers will become …. as no one is capable to repleace me teaching. A good ulama always worry about his people. Who would replace him.after he died.

He said to Allah

My wife were barren .. and now she is old… mono pause, But he knew that Allah can do anything that seems imposible. Please O my Sustainer Allah, give me out of Your/Thy Grace a successor / son.

Who will replace as a messenger and all atributes of all prophets of the house of Yaacob /Jacob..And make him O my Lord, well pleasing to Thee/you

  • He wanted a son
  • He wanted him to be prophet
  • He wanted him to have all good atributes of all prophets
  • He wanted him to be a shahid

We do our doa.. we were shy to say what we want…. am.i right? We ask short of what we want. But when we do doa about living then we asked Allah many things

We want a good wife/husband. We want a good family. We want our children to succeed in this world. We want more rezki. We want good health. We want to live long on this earth. But we ask little about iman, religion, knowledge of islam.
