˹This is˺ a reminder of your Lord’s mercy to   His servant Zachariah,when he cried out to    his Lord privately, saying, “My Lord ! Surely my bones have become brittle, and grey hair has spread across my head, but I have never been disappointed in my prayer to You, my Lord !Quran 19:2~4
The Surah is named after Maryam, the mother of Isa [Jesus].
Allah’s Messenger said, “Many amongst men attained perfection but amongst women none attained the perfection except Mary, the daughter of Imran and Asiya, the wife of Pharaoh. And the superiority ofAisha to other women is like the superiority of Tharid (i.e. an Arabic dish) to other meals.” [Bukhari 3769]

ذِكۡرُ رَحۡمَتِ رَبِّكَ عَبۡدَهُۥ زَكَرِیَّاۤ
إِذۡ نَادَىٰ رَبَّهُۥ 
نِدَاۤءً خَفِیࣰّا
قَالَ رَبِّ 
إِنِّی وَهَنَ ٱلۡعَظۡمُ مِنِّی وَٱشۡتَعَلَ ٱلرَّأۡسُ شَیۡبࣰا 

وَلَمۡ أَكُنۢ بِدُعَاۤىِٕكَ 
رَبِّ شَقِیࣰّا

(یہ) تمہارے پروردگار کی  مہربانی کا بیان (ہے جو اس نے) اپنے بندے زکریا پر (کی تھی) 
جب انہوں نے اپنے پروردگار کو دبی آواز سے پکارا (اور) کہا کہ اے میرے پروردگار 
میری ہڈیاں بڑھاپے کے سبب کمزور ہوگئی ہیں 
اور سر (ہے کہ) بڑھاپے (کی 
وجہ سے) شعلہ مارنے لگا ہے 
اے میرے پروردگار
میں تجھ سے مانگ کر 
کبھی محروم نہیں رہا
