and delivered him from the grief
and thus We save the believers

And Zakaria, when he called his Lord:
O my Lord! Leave me not childless,
and You are the Best Inheritor.

And may the blessings of Allah, The Exalted,
be on His best creation, Muhammad,
and on his family, and his companions, and his wives, all of them.
With Your Mercy, O The Most Merciful
