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 Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ Nun. By the pen and that which they write (therewith), (1) Thou art not, by thy Sustainer's grace, a madman! (2) And most surely you shall have a reward never to be cut off. (3) And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character. (4) Soon wilt thou see, and they will see, (5) Which of you is the afflicted [by a devil]. (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) Therefore do not listen to the deniers. (8) They wish that in some way you may yield, so they too might soften their stand. (9) And do not yield to any contemptible swearer, (10) Detracter, spreader abroad of slanders, (11) or to one who places obstacles in the way of good being done or to the wicked transgressor, (12) Crude, and above all, mean and infamous, (13) Simply because he possesses wealth and children. (14) When Our verses are recited to him, he says, “These are stories of earlier people.” (15) Soon shall We brand him on his snout. (16) We have tried them as We tried the owners of the garden who had sworn that in the morning they would reap it, (17) And they made not the exception. (18) A calamity from your Lord befell the orchard as they slept. (19) so that by the morrow it became barren and bleak. (20) They then called out to each other at daybreak. (21) "Go early to your tilth if you want to harvest the fruit!" (22) So they departed, conversing in secret low tones (saying), (23) "Let no beggar come to the garden". (24) And they went forth early, determined upon their purpose. (25) Then when they beheld it, they said: verily we have strayed. (26) No. In fact we have been deprived of it." (27) One who was temperate among them, said: "Did I not say: 'Why don't you priase God?'" (28) They said, "All glory belongs to God. We have certainly been unjust". (29) Then they turned, one against another, in blaming. (30) They said: Alas for us! In truth we were outrageous. (31) It may be that our Lord will give us in exchange a better than it; to our Lord we humbly turn.' (32) Such was the punishment. And verily the punishment of the Hereafter is greater if they did but know. (33)
