* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ قَالَ رَبِّ أَنَّىٰ يَكُونُ لِي غُلاَمٌ وَكَانَتِ ٱمْرَأَتِي عَاقِراً وَقَدْ بَلَغْتُ مِنَ ٱلْكِبَرِ عِتِيّاً }

(He said) Zachariah said to Gabriel: (My Lord!) my master, (How can I have a son when my wife is barren and I have reached infirm old age) how can I have a son when my wife is barren and my body has become dry?; it is also said that this means: how can I have a son when my wife is barren and I am seventy two years of age?
