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
۞ Noon. I swear by the pen and what the angels write, (1) thou art not, by the blessing of thy Lord, a man possessed. (2) Nay, verily for thee is a Reward unfailing: (3) surely thou art upon a mighty morality. (4) So you will see, and they will realise, (5) which of you is the demented. (6) Verily it is thy Lord that knoweth best, which (among men) hath strayed from His Path: and He knoweth best those who receive (true) Guidance. (7) Therefore, do not obey those who belie, (8) Fain would they that thou shouldst be pliant, so that they will be pliant. (9) And obey not thou any swearer ignominous. (10) A slanderer, going about with calumnies, (11) [or] the withholder of good, [or] the sinful aggressor, (12) Crude, and above all, mean and infamous, (13) Because he possesses wealth and sons. (14) when Our revelations are recited to him, he says, "These are just ancient fables." (15) [For this] We shall brand him with indelible disgrace! (16) We have indeed tested them the way We had tested the owners of the garden when they swore that they would reap its harvest the next morning. (17) Without making exception. (18) Thereupon a calamity from your Lord passed over it while they were asleep, (19) and in the morning it was if the garden had been reaped. (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, whispering to one another, (23) "Let no needy person come to you within it today." (24) They went forth early, believing that they had the power (to gather the fruit). (25) But when they saw it, they said, "Indeed, we are lost; (26) [and then,] "Nay, but we have been rendered destitute!" (27) The best among them said: "Did I not tell you: why do you not say: Insha' Allah (If Allah will)." (28) They said, "All glory belongs to God. We have certainly been unjust". (29) Then they started blaming one another, (30) They said, “Woe to us we were indeed rebellious.” (31) Maybe our Lord will give us better than this. We turn to our Lord in supplication." (32) Such is the torment if only they knew that the torment in the life hereafter will certainly be greater. (33)
