Umm Muhammad (Sahih International) rendition of Surah The Pen(al-Qalam)
68:1 Nun. By the pen and what they inscribe
68:2 You are not, [O Muhammad], by the favor of your Lord, a madman
68:3 And indeed, for you is a reward uninterrupted
68:4 And indeed, you are of a great moral character
68:5 So you will see and they will se
68:6 Which of you is the afflicted [by a devil]
68:7 Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has gone astray from His way, and He is most knowing of the [rightly] guided
68:8 Then do not obey the deniers
68:9 They wish that you would soften [in your position], so they would soften [toward you]
68:10 And do not obey every worthless habitual sweare
68:11 [And] scorner, going about with malicious gossip
68:12 A preventer of good, transgressing and sinful
68:13 Cruel, moreover, and an illegitimate pretender
68:14 Because he is a possessor of wealth and children
68:15 When Our verses are recited to him, he says, "Legends of the former peoples."
68:16 We will brand him upon the snout
68:17 Indeed, We have tried them as We tried the companions of the garden, when they swore to cut its fruit in the [early] mornin
68:18 Without making exception
68:19 So there came upon the garden an affliction from your Lord while they were asleep
68:20 And it became as though reaped
68:21 And they called one another at morning
68:22 [Saying], "Go early to your crop if you would cut the fruit."
68:23 So they set out, while lowering their voices
68:24 [Saying], "There will surely not enter it today upon you [any] poor person."
68:25 And they went early in determination, [assuming themselves] able
68:26 But when they saw it, they said, "Indeed, we are lost
68:27 Rather, we have been deprived."
68:28 The most moderate of them said, "Did I not say to you, 'Why do you not exalt [ Allah ]?' "
68:29 They said, "Exalted is our Lord! Indeed, we were wrongdoers."
68:30 Then they approached one another, blaming each other
68:31 They said, "O woe to us; indeed we were transgressors
68:32 Perhaps our Lord will substitute for us [one] better than it. Indeed, we are toward our Lord desirous."
68:33 Such is the punishment [of this world]. And the punishment of the Hereafter is greater, if they only knew
68:34 Indeed, for the righteous with their Lord are the Gardens of Pleasure
68:35 Then will We treat the Muslims like the criminals
68:36 What is [the matter] with you? How do you judge
68:37 Or do you have a scripture in which you lear
68:38 That indeed for you is whatever you choose
68:39 Or do you have oaths [binding] upon Us, extending until the Day of Resurrection, that indeed for you is whatever you judge
68:40 Ask them which of them, for that [claim], is responsible
68:41 Or do they have partners? Then let them bring their partners, if they should be truthful
68:42 The Day the shin will be uncovered and they are invited to prostration but the disbelievers will not be able
68:43 Their eyes humbled, humiliation will cover them. And they used to be invited to prostration while they were sound
68:44 So leave Me, [O Muhammad], with [the matter of] whoever denies the Qur'an. We will progressively lead them [to punishment] from where they do not know
68:45 And I will give them time. Indeed, My plan is firm
68:46 Or do you ask of them a payment, so they are by debt burdened down
68:47 Or have they [knowledge of] the unseen, so they write [it] down
68:48 Then be patient for the decision of your Lord, [O Muhammad], and be not like the companion of the fish when he called out while he was distressed
68:49 If not that a favor from his Lord overtook him, he would have been thrown onto the naked shore while he was censured
68:50 And his Lord chose him and made him of the righteous
68:51 And indeed, those who disbelieve would almost make you slip with their eyes when they hear the message, and they say, "Indeed, he is mad."
68:52 But it is not except a reminder to the worlds
