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 Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ Nun. By the Pen and the (Record) which (men) write,- (1) Thou art not, through the grace of thy Lord, mad. (2) And indeed, for you is a reward uninterrupted. (3) And most surely you conform (yourself) to sublime morality. (4) and [one day] thou shalt see, and they [who now deride thee] shall see, (5) Which of you is afflicted with madness. (6) Indeed, your Lord knows very well those who strayed from His Path, and those who are guided. (7) Do not, then, yield to those who reject the Truth, decrying it as false; (8) They wish that you would soften [in your position], so they would soften [toward you]. (9) Furthermore, defer not to the contemptible swearer of oaths, (10) The excessively insulting one, spreader of spite. (11) [or] the withholder of good, [or] the sinful aggressor, (12) Crude, and above all, mean and infamous, (13) Simply because he possesses wealth and children. (14) When Our verses are recited to him, he says: 'They are but fairytales of the ancients' (15) We shall brand him upon the muzzle! (16) Verily, We have tried them as We tried the people of the garden, when they swore to pluck the fruits of the (garden) in the 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 in the morning it was as if it were a garden plucked. (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 off they went, whispering to one another: (23) 'No needy man shall enter it today against your will.' (24) And in the morning they went, having the power to prevent. (25) When they saw the garden, they said, "Surely we have lost our way. (26) “In fact, we are unfortunate.” (27) (Whereupon) the best among them said: 'Did I not say to you to exalt (Allah)' (28) They said, "All glory belongs to God. We have certainly been unjust". (29) and then they turned upon one another with mutual reproaches. (30) They said: woe unto us! verily we! we have been arrogant. (31) We hope that our Lord will give us in exchange a better (garden) than this. Truly, we turn to our Lord (wishing for good that He may forgive our sins, and reward us in the Hereafter)." (32) Such is the chastisement, and certainly the chastisement of the hereafter is greater, did they but know! (33)
