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 Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ Nun. [These letters (Nun, etc.) are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. By the pen and what the (angels) write (in the Records of men). (1) You are not demented by the grace of your Lord. (2) And indeed for you is an unlimited reward. (3) And lo! thou art of a tremendous nature. (4) You will see, and they will see, (5) #NAME? (6) Your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His path and who is rightly guided. (7) So hearken not to those who deny (the Truth). (8) They wish that thou shouldst compromise, then they would compromise. (9) Nor ever listen to any excessive oath maker, ignoble person. (10) back-biting, gossiping, (11) A preventer of good, transgressing and sinful, (12) Greedy therewithal, intrusive. (13) just because he has wealth and sons, (14) When Our verses are recited to him, he says, "Legends of the former peoples." (15) We shall brand him over the nose! (16) We have tried you as We tried the owners of the garden when they vowed to gather the fruits in the morning (17) And made no exception (for the Will of Allah); (18) whereupon a visitation for thy Sustainer came upon that [garden] while they were asleep, (19) and in the morning it was if the garden had been reaped. (20) Now when they rose at early morn, they called unto one another, (21) 'Come forth betimes upon your tillage, if you would pluck!' (22) So they set out, while lowering their voices, (23) 'No needy man shall enter it today against your will.' (24) They set out early in the morning, thinking they had the power to prevent. (25) Then when they saw it, they said, “We have indeed strayed.” (26) No, rather, we have been prevented' (27) The best among them said: “Did I not say to you: why do you not give glory to (your Lord)?” (28) They said, "Exalted is our Lord! Indeed, we were wrongdoers." (29) And they came blaming one another. (30) They said, “Woe to us we were indeed rebellious.” (31) Perhaps our Lord will substitute for us [one] better than it. Indeed, we are toward our Lord desirous." (32) Such is the chastisement, and certainly the chastisement of the hereafter is greater, did they but know! (33)
