The Pen (Al-Qalam)
52 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Embryo (Al-Alaq) before Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ Nun. By the pen and what they inscribe, (1) You are not demented by the grace of your Lord. (2) Most surely, you will have a never ending reward. (3) For you are verily born of sublime nature. (4) So you will see and they will see (5) which of you is the demented. (6) Your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His path and who is rightly guided. (7) Therefor obey not thou the rejecters (8) they would wish you to be pliant so that they too may be pliant. (9) And obey not thou any swearer ignominous. (10) Detracter, spreader abroad of slanders, (11) those who hinder good, the guilty aggressor, (12) moreover ignoble, (13) Simply because he possesses wealth and children. (14) When Our Verses (of the Quran) are recited to him, he says: "Tales of the men of old!" (15) We will brand him on the nose. (16) Surely We will try them as We tried the owners of the garden, when they swore that they would certainly cut off the produce in the morning, (17) And were not willing to set aside a portion (for the poor). (18) Then there passed by on the (garden) something (fire) from your Lord at night and burnt it while they were asleep. (19) So in the morning it became as if harvested. (20) Now when they rose at early morn, they called unto one another, (21) Saying: Run unto your field if ye would pluck (the fruit). (22) So they went, while they consulted together secretly, (23) “Make sure that no needy person enters your garden this day.” (24) And they went out early, determined in their resolve. (25) But when they saw it, they said: Lo! we are in error! (26) [and then,] "Nay, but we have been rendered destitute!" (27) The best of them said: Did I not say to you, Why do you not glorify (Allah)? (28) They said: "Glory to our Lord! Verily we have been doing wrong!" (29) Then they approached one another, blaming each other. (30) They said, "Woe to us. We have been arrogant. (31) It may be that our Lord will give us better than this in place thereof. Lo! we beseech our Lord. (32) Such is Our chastisement; and the punishment of the Hereafter will be greater, if only they knew! (33)
