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 Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ Nuun* by oath of the pen and by oath of what is written by it. (Alphabet of the Arabic language; Allah and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.) (1) By your Lord's Grace, you are not afflicted with madness, (2) And verily, thine shall be a reward neverending (3) And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character. (4) Soon wilt thou see, and they will see, (5) #NAME? (6) Indeed your Lord well knows those who have strayed from His path, and He well knows those who are upon guidance. (7) So obey thou not those who cry lies. (8) they would like thee to be soft [with them,] so that they might be soft [with thee]. (9) And do not obey every worthless habitual swearer (10) A slanderer, going about with calumnies, (11) Forbidder of good, outstepping the limits, sinful, (12) Cruel, moreover, and an illegitimate pretender. (13) because he has wealth and sons. (14) When you recite Our revelations to him, he says: "These are fables of long ago." (15) We will brand him upon the snout. (16) We have indeed tested them the way We had tested the owners of the garden when they swore that they would reap its harvest the next morning. (17) But did not add: "If God may please." (18) Then a visitation from thy Lord came upon it while they slept (19) So the (garden) became black by the morning, like a pitch dark night (in complete ruins). (20) So they called out to each other at the break of dawn, (21) Saying: "Go to your tilth in the morning, if you would pluck the fruits." (22) So they went off, saying one unto another in low tones: (23) Let there not enter upon you today any needy man. (24) They went forth early, believing that they had the power (to gather the fruit). (25) When they saw the garden, they said, "Surely we have lost our way. (26) Nay! we are made to suffer privation. (27) Said the most right-minded among them: "Did I not tell you, 'Will you not extol God's limitless glory?'" (28) "Glory to our Lord," they said; we were really in the wrong." (29) and then they turned upon one another with mutual reproaches. (30) They said, “Woe to us we were indeed rebellious.” (31) Maybe, our Lord will give us instead one better than it; surely to our Lord do we make our humble petition. (32) SUCH is the suffering [with which We try some people in this world]; but greater by far will be the suffering [which sinners shall have to bear] in the life to come - if they but knew it! (33)
