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 by that which they inscribe. (1) Thou art not, by the Grace of thy Lord, mad or possessed. (2) Most surely, you will have a never ending reward. (3) for, behold, thou keepest indeed to a sublime way of life; (4) So you shall see, and they (too) 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) Then do not obey the deniers. (8) Who would have had thee compromise, that they may compromise. (9) Do not heed a contemptible swearer, (10) The excessively insulting one, spreader of spite. (11) Hinderer of the good, transgressor, sinful, (12) the crude of low character (13) (who so acts) simply because he has wealth and sons, (14) that, whenever Our messages are conveyed to him, such a one says, "Fables of ancient times"? (15) We shall brand him upon the muzzle! (16) Verily We! We have proved them even as We proved the fellows of a garden when they sware that they would surely reap it in the morning. (17) Without making exception. (18) So there came upon the garden an affliction from your Lord while they were asleep. (19) So the (garden) became black by the morning, like a pitch dark night (in complete ruins). (20) At daybreak they called out to one another: (21) Saying: Go early to your tilth if you would cut (the produce). (22) Thus they launched forth, whispering unto one another, (23) "Be sure to stop any poor person from entering the orchard today." (24) They were resolved to repel the beggars. (25) But when they saw the (garden), they said: "We have surely lost our way: (26) Aye! it is we who are deprived! (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) Then they began to reproach one another. (30) They said: Alas for us! In truth we were outrageous. (31) It may be that our Lord will give us better than this in place thereof. Lo! we beseech our Lord. (32) Such is the torment. And the torment of the Hereafter is far greater; if they but knew. (33)
