    Arabic Zakariyya. Identified in the Quran as the father of John , the husband of Elizabeth , and the priest entrusted with the care of Mary , mother of Jesus . Prayed to God in his old age for a child, since he had no heir and was concerned about what would happen to his relatives and property after his death; he was also concerned that he needed someone to represent him in continuing service to God. Prayed that the child would be pleasing to God. Angels announced to him the coming birth of John.
