The Pen (Al-Qalam)
52 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Embryo (Al-Alaq) before Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
۞ Nun. By the Pen and the (Record) which (men) write,- (1) you are not, because of the favor of your Lord, mad. (2) And indeed for you is an unlimited reward. (3) surely thou art upon a mighty morality. (4) Soon wilt thou see, and they will see, (5) which of you is the demented. (6) Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has gone astray from His way, and He is most knowing of the [rightly] guided. (7) So do not yield to the rejecters. (8) They would like you to relent to them so that they could also relent towards you. (9) Do not yield to one persistent in swearing, (10) A slanderer, going about with calumnies, (11) hinderer of good, guilty aggressor, coarse-grained, (12) the coarse-grained, and above all mean and ignoble; (13) because he has wealth and sons. (14) When to him are rehearsed Our Signs, "Tales of the ancients", he cries! (15) We shall mark him upon his nose! (16) Lo! We have tried them as We tried the owners of the garden when they vowed that they would pluck its fruit next morning, (17) But did not add: "If God may please." (18) Then, a visitation from your Lord came down upon it while they slept, (19) And it became as though reaped. (20) In the morning they called to one another, (21) That, “Go to your fields at early morn, if you want to harvest.” (22) So they went off, whispering to one another, (23) "Be sure to stop any poor person from entering the orchard today." (24) and early they went, strongly bent upon their purpose. (25) But when they saw it, they said, 'Surely we are gone astray; (26) Nay! we are made to suffer privation. (27) (Whereupon) the best among them said: 'Did I not say to you to exalt (Allah)' (28) They said, "Glory be to God, our Lord. We have surely done wrong." (29) So they came towards each other, blaming. (30) [In the end] they said: "Oh, woe unto us! Verily, we did behave outrageously! (31) It may be that our Lord will give us better than it in exchange. To our Lord we humbly turn' (32) Such is the punishment [of this world]. And the punishment of the Hereafter is greater, if they only knew. (33)
