Ahmed Raza Khan (Barelvi) rendition of Surah The Pen(al-Qalam)
68:1 By the pen and by that which they (angels) write.
68:2 You are not. by the grace of your Lord, mad.
68:3 And certainly, for you there is an endless reward.
68:4 And undoubtedly, you possess excellent manners.
68:5 Then now you shall soon see and they shall also see;
68:6 As to which of you was caught with madness.
68:7 Undoubtedly, your Lord knows well him who goes astray from His path, and He knows well those who are guided
68:8 Therefore, hear not the words of the beliers.
68:9 They desire that any how you should be appeased then they too would be appeased.
68:10 And hear not any such one who is a big swearer the mean.
68:11 One who taunts a lot, going around with slander.
68:12 Forbidder of good, transgressor, sinful.
68:13 Ill-mannered, and moreover his birth is faulty.
68:14 This is because he possesses some wealth and children.
68:15 When Our signs are recited to him, he says 'stories of the ancients'.
68:16 We shall soon brand upon his swine like snout.
68:17 Undoubtedly, We have tried them as We tried the owners of the garden when they swore that they would certainly reap their crop in the morning.
68:18 And they said not 'if Allah please'.
68:19 Then something going round from your Lord went round it while they were asleep.
68:20 And in the morning it was as it were fruits plucked.
68:21 Then they called one another in the morning.
68:22 Saying, 'go to your fields early in the morning if you are going to reap'.
68:23 And they went forth early in the morning, whispering together.
68:24 That no needy person should come in your garden today.
68:25 And they went forth early in the morning, determined upon their purpose.
68:26 But when they saw it, they said, 'undoubtedly, we have lost our way'.
68:27 Nay, rather we have been deprived of every thing.
68:28 The most moderate of them said, "Did I not say to you, why do you not glorify Allah? "
68:29 They said, 'Glory is to our Lord, undoubtedly, we had been unjust.
68:30 Now one turned towards other reproaching.
68:31 They said, 'Ah! Woe to us, undoubtedly, we were contumacious.
68:32 It may be that our Lord will give us in exchange a better than it, we do humbly turn to our Lord.
68:33 Such is the punishment, and the punishment of the Hereafter is far greater. What a good thing it was, if they knew?
68:34 Undoubtedly, for the God fearing, there are Gardens of Bliss with their Lord.
68:35 Shall We make the muslims like the culprits?
68:36 What happened to you? How you judge?
68:37 Have you any Book wherein you read?
68:38 That you shall have in it whatever you choose?
68:39 Or have you some oaths from Us, reaching to the Day of Resurrection that you shall have all that you claim?
68:40 Ask them which of them is guarantor thereof?
68:41 Or have they some associates? Let them, then bring their associates, if they are truthful.
68:42 The day when a leg shall be exposed (the meaning is known to Allah) and they will be called upon to prostrate themselves, they will not be able to do so.
68:43 Their eyes will be cast down, and humiliation will be covering them, and they were indeed called upon to prostrate themselves in the world when they were sound healthy.
68:44 So leave him to Me, who belies this word. Soon We shall draw them step by step whence they know not.
68:45 And I shall grant them respite, undoubtedly, My secret planning is very strong.
68:46 Or do you ask them a wage so that they are laden with debt?
68:47 Or is the unseen with them so that they are writing?
68:48 Therefore wait for the command of your Lord and be not as the Man of the Fish when he called out while his heart was choking.
68:49 Had not the favour of his Lord reached him for his care, he would have surely been cast upon land blamed.
68:50 Then his Lord chose him and made him of His near ones.
68:51 And it seems that the infidels with their bad looks will necessarily, stumble you when they hear Quran and they say, 'He is surely faraway from wisdom'.
68:52 And it is not, but an admonition for the worlds
