The Pen (Al-Qalam)
52 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Embryo (Al-Alaq) before Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ Nun. CONSIDER the pen, and all that they write [therewith]! (1) You are not, [O Muhammad], by the favor of your Lord, a madman. (2) Most surely, you will have a never ending reward. (3) For you are truly of a sublime character. (4) You will see, and they will see, (5) Which of you is afflicted with madness. (6) Surely your Lord knows well those who have strayed from His Way just as He knows well those who are on the Right Way. (7) Hence, defer not to [the likes and dislikes of] those who give the lie to the truth: (8) Fain would they that thou shouldst be pliant, so that they will be pliant. (9) Neither obey thou each feeble oath-monger, (10) The excessively insulting one, spreader of spite. (11) or to one who places obstacles in the way of good being done or to the wicked transgressor, (12) moreover ignoble, (13) because he has wealth and sons. (14) When Our revelations are recited to him, he says, "These are ancient legends". (15) Soon We will brand him on the nose. (16) Verily We have tried them as We tried the People of the Garden, when they resolved to gather the fruits of the (garden) in the morning. (17) without adding ("if God wills"). (18) Then there encompassed it a visitation from your Lord while they were sleeping. (19) So the (garden) became black by the morning, like a pitch dark night (in complete ruins). (20) In the morning they called to one another, (21) “Hurry to your orchard if you would gather its fruit.” (22) So they departed, conversing in secret low tones, (saying)- (23) "Be sure to stop any poor person from entering the orchard today." (24) They set out early in the morning, thinking they had the power to prevent. (25) But when they saw it, they said, "Indeed, we are lost; (26) (No, we are not lost.) In fact, we have been deprived of everything". (27) A reasonable one among them said, "Did I not tell you that you should glorify God?" (28) They said: "Glory to Our Lord! Verily, we have been Zalimun (wrong-doers, etc.)." (29) And they came blaming one another. (30) They said, "O woe to us; indeed we were transgressors. (31) It may be that our Lord will give us in exchange a better than it; to our Lord we humbly turn.' (32) Such is the chastisement; and the chastisement of the world to come, is assuredly greater, did they but know. (33)
