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, through the grace of thy Lord, mad. (2) Most surely, you will have a never ending reward. (3) And indeed, you are of a great moral character. (4) You will see and they will also see (5) #NAME? (6) Surely your Lord best knows him who errs from His way, and He best knows the followers of the right course. (7) Do not give in to the deniers of truth. (8) they would wish you to be pliant so that they too may be pliant. (9) Do not heed a contemptible swearer, (10) the fault-finder who goes around slandering, (11) hinderer of good, guilty aggressor, coarse-grained, (12) the crude of low character (13) because he has wealth and sons. (14) and whenever Our verses are rehearsed to him, he says: “These are fairy- tales of times gone by.” (15) We shall brand him upon the muzzle! (16) We have tried you as We tried the owners of the garden when they vowed to gather the fruits in the morning (17) But made no reservation, ("If it be Allah's Will"). (18) Then a visitation from thy Lord visited it, while they were sleeping, (19) and in the morning it was as if it were a garden plucked. (20) Then they cried out unto each other in the morning. (21) "If you want to gather the fruits, let us go early to the plantation." (22) So they departed, whispering together, (23) "Let no beggar come to the garden". (24) They went betimes, strong in (this) purpose. (25) But when they saw it, they said, "Indeed, we are lost; (26) Aye! it is we who are deprived! (27) The best among them said: "Did I not tell you: why do you not say: Insha' Allah (If Allah will)." (28) They said, 'Glory be to God, our Lord; truly, we were evildoers.' (29) Then they began to heap reproaches on each other. (30) They said: “Woe to us! We had indeed transgressed. (31) Perhaps our Lord will substitute for us [one] better than it. Indeed, we are toward our Lord desirous." (32) Such is the chastisement, and certainly the chastisement of the hereafter is greater, did they but know! (33)
