In Ayat 21:90 Allah (sbt) informs us that He Responded to the dua of Zakaria, and then He Lists the attributes of Zakaria, and his wife that He Loves. He says, “So We Responded to him, and We bestowed upon him John, and amended for him his wife. Indeed, they used to hasten to good acts, and they called upon us with desire, and they where to us in awe filled submission.”
So here we explicitly see that the Divine Act of Bestowal occurs in response to a dua. This was implied before, but never did Allah (sbt) explicitly say, “So we responded to Him, and we Bestowed upon Him…”. Further, we see that Allah (sbt) describes how Zakaria (as) and his wife used to live. This shows us the type of people that Allah (sbt) most fully manifest Himself as al-Wahab too.
He says, “Indeed, they used to hasten to the best deeds, and call upon us with desire, and fear. And, they where to Us in awe filled submission.” Zakaria, and his wife are an example to us, if we want Allah (sbt) to respond to our dua, and enact the Divine Act of bestowal upon us. We must hasten to good acts, and call upon Allah (sbt) with desire and fear. And, we must be in awe filled submission to him.
Now, notice that the bestowal upon Zakaria was that of Yahya (as), one of the greatest and one of the last Prophets who ever lived. Think about having a son bestowed upon you who was one the greatest Prophets.
However, many of us would be happy with lesser bestowals, so we should not be intimidated in trying to imitate Zakariya. To whatever degree we embody his virtues listed by Allah (sbt) to that degree we will have our dua responded to, and be bestowed upon.
Surah Ankabuut Ayat 27 (29: 27) – the 7th Dhikr of Wahabna in the Qur’an – the 4th Dhikr of Allah (sbt) bestowing Isaac and Yaqub upon Ibrahim (as)
In ayat 29:27 Allah (sbt) makes the 4th Dhikr of His Bestowing Isaac and Yaqub upon Ibrahim (as). Each dhikr has provided new information, and been articulated in a unique way.
Here Allah (sbt) says, “And, we bestowed Isaac and Jacob, and appointed in his descendents the Prophethood and the the Book. And, We Imparted Reward in the worldly life, and indeed in the hereafter they will surely be amongst the Righteous.”
So prophethood had been mentioned before, but here the Book is explicitly mentioned. Also, the fact that they were rewarded in the worldly life as well is explicitly mentioned. And, lastly their inclusion in the salihin in the hereafter in also new.
Notice that Allah (sbt) says that the Prophethood and the Book was placed in “his seed” not “their seed”. Therefore, the Prophets that came in the line of Isaac, and Jacob were not so blessed, because of Isaac and Jacob, but rather because of their descent from Abraham himself. And, the final prophethood and revelation of the Book to Muhammad (sws) in the form of the Qur’an is also an identical expression to this appointment of the Prophethood and the Book in the descendents of Ibrahim (as).
