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 Most Merciful
۞ Nun. By the pen and by that which they inscribe. (1) you are not, because of the favor of your Lord, mad. (2) And verily, for you (O Muhammad SAW) will be an endless reward. (3) For you are truly of a sublime character. (4) So very soon, you will see and they too will realise (5) which of you was bereft of reason. (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) Do not, then, yield to those who reject the Truth, decrying it as false; (8) They only want that you should relent, so that they may come to terms. (9) And obey not thou any swearer ignominous. (10) Defamer, going about with slander (11) Hinderer of the good, transgressor, malefactor (12) Cruel, after all that base-born (of illegitimate birth), (13) Because he possesses wealth and (numerous) sons. (14) When Our Verses (of the Quran) are recited to him, he says: "Tales of the men of old!" (15) We shall brand him on the muzzle. (16) Verily We have tried them as We tried the People of the Garden, when they resolved to gather the fruits of the (garden) in the morning. (17) And made no exception (for the Will of Allah); (18) So there came upon the garden an affliction from your Lord while they were asleep. (19) and in the morning it was if the garden had been reaped. (20) They then called out to each other at daybreak. (21) "Go ye to your tilth (betimes) in the morning, if ye would gather the fruits." (22) So they went off, while whispering to one another. (23) "Let no beggar come to the garden". (24) They went betimes, strong in (this) purpose. (25) But when they saw it, they said: Most surely we have gone astray (26) Rather, we have been deprived." (27) Said the most right-minded among them: "Did I not tell you, 'Will you not extol God's limitless glory?'" (28) "Glory to our Lord," they said; we were really in the wrong." (29) Some of them started to blame others. (30) They said, "Alas for us, our behaviour was beyond the pale. (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 was their punishment, [in this life]. But the punishment of the life to come is much more severe, if only they knew it! (33)
