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 Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ Nun. By the pen, and all that they write! (1) Thou art not, by thy Sustainer's grace, a madman! (2) And verily, for you (O Muhammad SAW) will be an endless reward. (3) And indeed, you are of a great moral character. (4) So you shall see, and they (too) shall see, (5) Which of you is afflicted with madness. (6) Lo! thy Lord is Best Aware of him who strayeth from His way, and He is Best Aware of those who walk aright. (7) Do not give in to the deniers of truth. (8) they would wish you to be pliant so that they too may be pliant. (9) Furthermore, defer not to the contemptible swearer of oaths, (10) A slanderer, going about with calumnies, (11) Who hinders men from (doing) good, the transgressor, the iniquitous, (12) Gross, and therewithal ignoble. (13) Simply because he possesses wealth and children. (14) When to him are rehearsed Our Signs, "Tales of the ancients", he cries! (15) Soon 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) But made no reservation, ("If it be Allah's Will"). (18) Then, a visitation from your Lord came down upon it while they slept, (19) So it became as black, barren land. (20) And they called out to each other in the morning, (21) "Go early to your farms, if you want to pluck the fruits". (22) So they went off speaking to each other in a low voice. (23) "Let not a single indigent person break in upon you into the (garden) this day." (24) They set out early in the morning, thinking they had the power to prevent. (25) But when they saw it, they said, "Indeed, we are lost; (26) (Then they said): "Nay! Indeed we are deprived of (the fruits)!" (27) (Whereupon) the best among them said: 'Did I not say to you to exalt (Allah)' (28) They cried out: “Glory be to our Lord! Certainly we were sinners.” (29) Then they turned, one against another, in reproach. (30) Saying: "Alas the woe, we were iniquitous. (31) Maybe our Lord will give us better than this. We turn to our Lord in supplication." (32) Such is the torment. And the torment of the Hereafter is far greater; if they but knew. (33)
