{21:89} And [mention] Zechariah, when he called to his Lord, "My Lord, do not leave me alone [with no heir], while you are the best of inheritors."

I suggest,
{21:89} And [mention] Zechariah, as he called out to his Lord, "Lord, do not leave me single (with no heirs), while you are the best of inheritors."

Quote:
{21:90} So We responded to him, and We gave to him John, and amended for him his wife. Indeed, they used to hasten to good deeds and supplicate Us in hope and fear, and they were to Us humbly submissive.

I suggest,
{21:90} So We responded to him, and We gifted to him John, and revamped for him his wife. Verily, they used to hasten to good deeds and supplicate Us with yearning and awe, and they were toward Us meek.
