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. CONSIDER the pen, and all that they write [therewith]! (1) Thou art not, through the grace of thy Lord, mad. (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 will see and they will also see (5) Who is distracted. (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) Therefor obey not thou the rejecters (8) They would like you to relent to them so that they could also relent towards you. (9) Do not yield to one persistent in swearing, (10) the backbiter who goes about slandering, (11) or to one who places obstacles in the way of good being done or to the wicked transgressor, (12) Cruel, after all that base-born (of illegitimate birth), (13) (He was so) because he had wealth and children. (14) When Our verses are recited to him, he says, "Legends of the former peoples." (15) We shall brand him on the muzzle. (16) We have tested them in the same way as we tested the dwellers of the garden (in Yemen) when they swore to pluck all the fruits of the garden in the morning, (17) But made no reservation, ("If it be Allah's Will"). (18) Then there encompassed it a visitation from your Lord while they were sleeping. (19) So the (garden) became, by the morning, like a dark and desolate spot, (whose fruit had been gathered). (20) Now when they rose at early morn, they called unto one another, (21) Saying: Go early to your tilth if you would cut (the produce). (22) So off they went, whispering to one another: (23) "Let no beggar come to the garden". (24) They went betimes, strong in (this) purpose. (25) But when they saw the (garden), they said: "We have surely lost our way: (26) “In fact, we are unfortunate.” (27) One who was temperate among them, said: "Did I not say: 'Why don't you priase God?'" (28) They said, "All glory belongs to God. We have certainly been unjust". (29) So they came towards each other, blaming. (30) They said, 'Woe, alas for us! Truly, we were insolent. (31) Maybe our Lord will give us a better orchard in its place; to our Lord do we penitently turn.” (32) Such is the chastisement, and certainly the chastisement of the hereafter is greater, did they but know! (33)
