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 Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ 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) There is surely reward unending for you, (3) And most surely you conform (yourself) to sublime morality. (4) Soon you will see, as will they, (5) #NAME? (6) Indeed, your Lord knows very well those who strayed from His Path, and those who are guided. (7) So hearken not to those who deny (the Truth). (8) they wish you would compromise, then, they would compromise. (9) And obey thou not every mean swearer, (10) the fault-finder who goes around slandering, (11) Hinderer of the good, transgressor, malefactor (12) Greedy therewithal, intrusive. (13) because he has wealth and sons. (14) When Our signs are recited to him, he says, 'Fairy-tales of the ancients!' (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 swore to pluck the fruits of the (garden) in the morning, (17) But did not add: "If God may please." (18) Then a visitation from thy Lord came upon it while they slept (19) and in the morning it was as if it were a garden plucked. (20) (Then) in the morning they called out to one another, saying: (21) 'Come forth betimes upon your tillage, if you would pluck!' (22) So they departed, conversing in secret low tones, (saying)- (23) 'No needy person shall set foot in it today' (24) They went forth early, believing that they had the power (to gather the fruit). (25) But when they saw it, they said, "We must have lost our way. (26) nay, rather we have been robbed!' (27) One who was temperate among them, said: "Did I not say: 'Why don't you priase God?'" (28) 'Exaltations to Allah, our Lord' they said, 'We were truly harmdoers' (29) Then they turned to each other reproaching. (30) They said: “Woe to us! We had indeed transgressed. (31) Maybe our Lord will give us a better orchard in its place; to our Lord do we penitently turn.” (32) Such is the torment. And the torment of the Hereafter is far greater; if they but knew. (33)
