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. I CALL to witness the pen and what they inscribe, (1) Thou art not, for thy Lord's favour unto thee, a madman. (2) And indeed for you is an unlimited reward. (3) For you are verily born of sublime nature. (4) And thou wilt see and they will see (5) #NAME? (6) Verily, your Lord knows better, who (among men) has gone astray from His Path, and He knows better those who are guided. (7) So obey thou not those who cry lies. (8) Their desire is that thou shouldst be pliant: so would they be pliant. (9) Neither obey thou each feeble oath-monger, (10) backbiter, going about with slander, (11) (Habitually) hindering (all) good, transgressing beyond bounds, deep in sin, (12) moreover ignoble, (13) Because he possesses wealth and sons. (14) When Our revelations are recited to him, he says, "These are ancient legends". (15) We shall brand him on the muzzle. (16) We have put them [i.e., the Makkans] to test even as We put to test the owners of the orchard when they vowed that they would gather the fruit of their orchard in the morning, (17) without adding ("if God wills"). (18) Then there encompassed it a visitation from your Lord while they were sleeping. (19) so that by the morrow it became barren and bleak. (20) As the morning broke, they called out, one to another,- (21) Saying: Go early to your tilth if you would cut (the produce). (22) So they went off, while whispering to one another. (23) "Let no beggar come to the garden". (24) They were resolved to repel the beggars. (25) But when they saw it, they said, "Indeed, we are lost; (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: Glorified be our Lord! Lo! we have been wrong-doers. (29) And they came blaming one another. (30) Said they: O woe to us! surely we were inordinate: (31) Perhaps our Lord will replace it with a better garden. We turn in repentance to 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)
