52 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Embryo (Al-Alaq) before Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ Noon. By the Pen and that (the angels) write, (1) (Muhammad), you are not insane, thanks to the bounty of your Lord. (2) Most surely, you will have a never ending reward. (3) and you are certainly on the most exalted standard of moral excellence. (4) You will see, and they will see, (5) which of you is a prey to madness. (6) Your Lord knows best who has fallen by the wayside, and who has remained on the true path. (7) Therefor obey not thou the rejecters (8) Who would have had thee compromise, that they may compromise. (9) And do not obey every worthless habitual swearer (10) Defamer, going about with slander (11) Forbidder of good, outstepping the limits, sinful, (12) Violent (and cruel),- with all that, base-born,- (13) Because he is owner of riches and children. (14) when Our revelations are recited to him, he says, "These are just ancient fables." (15) We shall brand him on the muzzle. (16) Now We have tried them, even as We tried the owners of the garden when they swore they would pluck in the morning (17) Without making exception. (18) Thereupon a calamity from your Lord passed over it while they were asleep, (19) and in the morning it was if the garden had been reaped. (20) Then they called out one to another as soon as the morning broke, (21) Saying: Run unto your field if ye would pluck (the fruit). (22) So they departed, conversing in secret low tones (saying), (23) "Let not a single indigent person break in upon you into the (garden) this day." (24) They went forth early, believing that they had the power (to gather the fruit). (25) But when they saw it, they said: Lo! we are in error! (26) No, rather, we have been prevented' (27) The best among them said: Said I not unto you: Why glorify ye not (Allah)? (28) "Glory to our Lord," they said; we were really in the wrong." (29) Then they began to heap reproaches on each other. (30) They said, "Alas for us, our behaviour was beyond the pale. (31) Maybe our Lord will give us better than this. We turn to our Lord in supplication." (32) Such is the punishment; and indeed the punishment of the Hereafter is the greatest, if only they knew! (33)
