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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ Nuun* by oath of the pen and by oath of what is written by it. (Alphabet of the Arabic language; Allah and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.) (1) (Muhammad), you are not insane, thanks to the bounty of your Lord. (2) Indeed, there is an unfailing wage for you. (3) And verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) are on an exalted standard of character. (4) You shall see and they will see (5) Which of you is afflicted with madness. (6) Verily, your Lord knows better, who (among men) has gone astray from His Path, and He knows better those who are guided. (7) Do not, then, yield to those who reject the Truth, decrying it as false; (8) They wish that you should be pliant so they (too) would be pliant. (9) And do not yield to any contemptible swearer, (10) backbiter, going about with slander, (11) or to one who places obstacles in the way of good being done or to the wicked transgressor, (12) the crude of low character (13) (who so acts) simply because he has wealth and sons, (14) When Our verses are recited to him, he says: 'They are but fairytales of the ancients' (15) We shall brand him on his nose. (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) Without making exception. (18) A calamity from your Lord befell the orchard as they slept. (19) So by the morning it seemed as though picked clean. (20) Then they called out one to another as soon as the morning broke, (21) Saying: "Go to your tilth in the morning, if you would pluck the fruits." (22) So they went off speaking to each other in a low voice. (23) “Make sure that no needy person enters your garden this day.” (24) They went forth early, believing that they had the power (to gather the fruit). (25) But when they saw the (garden), they said: "We have surely lost our way: (26) [and then,] "Nay, but we have been rendered destitute!" (27) A reasonable one among them said, "Did I not tell you that you should glorify God?" (28) They answered: "Limitless in His glory is our Sustainer! Verily, we were doing wrong!" (29) Then they turned, one against another, in blaming. (30) They said 'Woe to us, truly we were insolent' (31) Belike our Lord may exchange for us better garden than this; verily we are unto our Lord beseechers. (32) Such was their punishment. But the punishment of the Everlasting Life is much greater, if they but knew. (33)
