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 all that they write! (1) thou art not, by the blessing of thy Lord, a man possessed. (2) Surely thou shalt have a wage unfailing; (3) Surely, you (Prophet Muhammad) are of a great morality. (4) So you shall see, and they (too) shall see, (5) Who is distracted. (6) Verily thy Lord! He is the best Knower of him who strayeth from His path, and He is the best Knower of the guided one. (7) Therefor obey not thou the rejecters (8) They wish that thou shouldst compromise, then they would compromise. (9) Neither obey thou each feeble oath-monger, (10) [or to] the slanderer that goes about with defaming tales, (11) obstructing virtues, a sinful transgressor, (12) the crude of low character (13) just because he has wealth and sons, (14) When Our verses are recited to him, he says, "Legends of the former peoples." (15) We will brand him on the nose. (16) We have tried you as We tried the owners of the garden when they vowed to gather the fruits in the morning (17) And they did not say, “If Allah wills”. (18) Then a visitation from thy Lord came upon it while they slept (19) and the garden was turned into a barren desert. (20) They then called out to each other at daybreak. (21) “Hurry to your orchard if you would gather its fruit.” (22) So they went off speaking to each other in a low voice. (23) "Be sure to stop any poor person from entering the orchard today." (24) And they went forth early, determined upon their purpose. (25) But when they saw the (garden), they said: "We have surely lost our way: (26) nay, rather we have been robbed!' (27) The most moderate of them said, "Did I not say to you, 'Why do you not exalt [Allah]?' " (28) They said, "All glory belongs to God. We have certainly been unjust". (29) Then they turned to each other reproaching. (30) They said, 'Woe, alas for us! Truly, we were insolent. (31) Perhaps our Lord will replace it with a better garden. We turn in repentance to our Lord". (32) Such is the torment if only they knew that the torment in the life hereafter will certainly be greater. (33)
