The Pen (Al-Qalam)
52 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Embryo (Al-Alaq) before Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ Noon. I swear by the pen and what the angels write, (1) You are not demented by the grace of your Lord. (2) And verily, for you (O Muhammad SAW) will be an endless reward. (3) And verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) are on an exalted standard of character. (4) You shall see and they will see (5) which of you is the demented. (6) Surely thy Lord knows very well those who have gone astray from His way, and He knows very well those who are guided. (7) So (O Muhammad SAW) obey not the deniers [(of Islamic Monotheism those who belie the Verses of Allah), the Oneness of Allah, and the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad SAW), etc.] (8) They wish that thou shouldst compromise, then they would compromise. (9) Furthermore, defer not to the contemptible swearer of oaths, (10) or to any defamer or one who spreads slander, (11) Hinderer of the good, transgressor, malefactor (12) [or] one who is cruel, by greed possessed, and in addition to all this, utterly useless [to his fellow-men]. (13) Is it because he is possessed of worldly goods and children (14) When Our verses are recited to him, he says, "Legends of the former peoples." (15) [For this] We shall brand him with indelible disgrace! (16) Indeed, We have tried them as We tried the companions of the garden, when they swore to cut its fruit in the [early] morning (17) But made no reservation, ("If it be Allah's Will"). (18) So an envoy from your Lord completed his round upon the garden, whilst they were sleeping. (19) And in the morning it was as if plucked. (20) Now when they rose at early morn, they called unto one another, (21) saying, "Be quick to reach your orchard, if you want to gather all your fruits." (22) So they went off, saying one unto another in low tones: (23) "Let no beggar come to the garden". (24) and early they went, strongly bent upon their purpose. (25) But when they saw it, they said: Lo! we are in error! (26) Nay! we are made to suffer privation. (27) Said one of them, more just (than the rest): "Did I not say to you, 'Why not glorify (Allah)?'" (28) 'Exaltations to Allah, our Lord' they said, 'We were truly harmdoers' (29) Then they began to heap reproaches on each other. (30) They said: Alas for us! In truth we were outrageous. (31) "It may be that our Lord will give us in exchange a better (garden) than this: for we do turn to Him (in repentance)!" (32) Such is Our chastisement; and the punishment of the Hereafter will be greater, if only they knew! (33)
