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
۞ Nun. By the pen and what they inscribe, (1) you are not, because of the favor of your Lord, mad. (2) There is surely reward unending for you, (3) And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character. (4) You will see and they will also see (5) which of you is afflicted with madness. (6) Lo! thy Lord is Best Aware of him who strayeth from His way, and He is Best Aware of those who walk aright. (7) Do not give in to the deniers of truth. (8) They only want that you should relent, so that they may come to terms. (9) Heed not the type of despicable men,- ready with oaths, (10) the fault-finder who goes around slandering, (11) the hinderer of good, the transgressor, the sinful; (12) the crude of low character (13) (He was so) because he had wealth and children. (14) When Our Verses (of the Quran) are recited to him, he says: "Tales of the men of old!" (15) [For this] We shall brand him with indelible disgrace! (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 did not add: "If God may please." (18) A calamity from your Lord befell the orchard as they slept. (19) And in the morning it was as if plucked. (20) And they called one another at morning, (21) That, “Go to your fields at early morn, if you want to harvest.” (22) And so they departed, whispering to one another: (23) 'No needy person shall set foot in it today' (24) And they went out early, determined in their resolve. (25) Then when they saw it, they said, “We have indeed strayed.” (26) rather, we are utterly ruined.” (27) The best of them said: Did I not say to you, Why do you not glorify (Allah)? (28) They said, "Glory be to God, our Lord. We have surely done wrong." (29) Then they turned, one against another, in blaming. (30) They said: “Woe to us! We had indeed transgressed. (31) It may be that our Lord will give us better than this in place thereof. Lo! we beseech our Lord. (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)
