Meaning of Zakariyya
Zakariyya is a direct Quranic name for boys that refers to one of the prophets mentioned in the Quran. Zakariyya is mentioned seven times in the Quran and is mentioned as Zachariah in the Bible. He was the father of Prophet Yahya (John) and took care of Mary, mother of Prophet Isa/Jesus.
And thereupon her Lord accepted the girl-child (Mary) with goodly acceptance, and caused her to grow up in goodly growth, and placed her in the care of Zakariyya. Whenever Zakariyya visited her in the sanctuary, he found her provided with food. He would ask: “O Mary, whence came this unto thee?” She would answer: “It is from God; behold, God grants sustenance unto whom He wills, beyond all reckoning.” (Quran 3:37)
