The Pen (Al-Qalam)
52 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Embryo (Al-Alaq) before Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ Noon. By the Pen and that (the angels) write, (1) (Muhammad), you are not insane, thanks to the bounty of your Lord. (2) And verily thine shall be a hire unending. (3) And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character. (4) and [one day] thou shalt see, and they [who now deride thee] shall see, (5) which of you was bereft of reason. (6) Your Lord knows best who has fallen by the wayside, and who has remained on the true path. (7) Therefore, do not obey those who belie, (8) They want you to make concessions to them and then they will reciprocate. (9) And obey not everyone who swears much, and is considered worthless, (10) A slanderer, going about with calumnies, (11) (Habitually) hindering (all) good, transgressing beyond bounds, deep in sin, (12) Gross, and therewithal ignoble. (13) because he has wealth and sons. (14) and whenever Our verses are rehearsed to him, he says: “These are fairy- tales of times gone by.” (15) We will brand him on the nose. (16) We have tried them as we tried the owners of a certain orchard, who vowed to harvest all its fruits the next morning, (17) And made no exception (for the Will of Allah); (18) A calamity from your Lord befell the orchard as they slept. (19) and the garden was turned into a barren desert. (20) So they called out to each other at the break of dawn, (21) "Go early to your tilth if you want to harvest the fruit!" (22) So they set out, while lowering their voices, (23) "Let no beggar come to the garden". (24) And they went early in determination, [assuming themselves] able. (25) But as soon as they beheld the orchard, (they cried out): “We have certainly lost the way; (26) (No, we are not lost.) In fact, we have been deprived of everything". (27) The best among them said: Said I not unto you: Why glorify ye not (Allah)? (28) 'Exaltations to Allah, our Lord' they said, 'We were truly harmdoers' (29) And they advanced one upon another, blaming each other. (30) [In the end] they said: "Oh, woe unto us! Verily, we did behave outrageously! (31) [But] it may be that our Sustainer will grant us something better instead: for, verily, unto our Sustainer do we turn with hope!" (32) SUCH is the suffering [with which We try some people in this world]; but greater by far will be the suffering [which sinners shall have to bear] in the life to come - if they but knew it! (33)
