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 Compassionate
۞ Noon. By the Pen and that (the angels) write, (1) By your Lord's Grace, you are not afflicted with madness, (2) And lo! thine verily will be a reward unfailing. (3) And lo! thou art of a tremendous nature. (4) and [one day] thou shalt see, and they [who now deride thee] shall see, (5) #NAME? (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) So do not yield to the rejecters. (8) Who would have had thee compromise, that they may compromise. (9) Do not yield to one persistent in swearing, (10) Or backbiter, calumniator, slanderer, (11) Hinderer of the good, transgressor, sinful, (12) ill-mannered, and moraly corrupt (13) (who so acts) simply because he has wealth and sons, (14) When Our Verses (of the Quran) are recited to him, he says: "Tales of the men of old!" (15) Soon shall We brand (the beast) on the snout! (16) We have tried them as We tried the owners of the garden who had sworn that in the morning they would reap it, (17) And they did not say, “If Allah wills”. (18) Then, a visitation from your Lord came down upon it while they slept, (19) So it became as black, barren land. (20) Then they called out one to another as soon as the morning broke, (21) 'Come out to your tillage if you want to reap' (22) Thus they launched forth, whispering unto one another, (23) 'No needy man shall enter it today against your will.' (24) and early they went, strongly bent upon their purpose. (25) Then when they saw it, they said, “We have indeed strayed.” (26) “In fact, we are unfortunate.” (27) (Whereupon) the best among them said: 'Did I not say to you to exalt (Allah)' (28) They said, 'Glory be to God, our Lord; truly, we were evildoers.' (29) Then they began to heap reproaches on each other. (30) Said they: O woe to us! surely we were inordinate: (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 is the chastisement; and the chastisement of the Hereafter is assuredly even greater, if only they knew. (33)
