Nun. By the Pen, and what they inscribe
thou art not, by the blessing of thy Lord, a man possessed
Surely thou shalt have a wage unfailing
surely thou art upon a mighty morality
So thou shalt see, and they will see
which of you is the demented
Surely thy Lord knows very well those who have gone astray from His way, and He knows very well those who are guided
So obey thou not those who cry lies
They wish that thou shouldst compromise, then they would compromise
And obey thou not every mean swearer
backbiter, going about with slander
hinderer of good, guilty aggressor, coarse-grained
because he has wealth and sons
When Our signs are recited to him, he says, 'Fairy-tales of the ancients!
We shall brand him upon the muzzle
Now We have tried them, even as We tried the owners of the garden when they swore they would pluck in the mornin
and they added not the saving words
Then a visitation from thy Lord visited it, while they were sleeping
and in the morning it was as if it were a garden plucked
In the morning they called to one another
'Come forth betimes upon your tillage, if you would pluck!
So they departed, whispering together
'No needy man shall enter it today against your will.
And they went forth early, determined upon their purpose
But when they saw it, they said, 'Surely we are gone astray
nay, rather we have been robbed!
Said the most moderate of them, 'Did I not say to you, "Why do you not give glory?"
They said, 'Glory be to God, our Lord; truly, we were evildoers.
And they advanced one upon another, blaming each other
They said, 'Woe, alas for us! Truly, we were insolent
It may be that our Lord will give us in exchange a better than it; to our Lord we humbly turn.
Such is the chastisement; and the chastisement of the world to come, is assuredly greater, did they but know
Surely for the godfearing shall be Gardens of Bliss with their Lord
What, shall we make those who have surrendered like to the sinners
What ails you then, how you judge
Or have you a Book wherein you study
Surely therein you shall have whatever you choose
Or have you oaths from Us, reaching to the Day of Resurrection? Surely you shall have whatever you judge
Ask them, which of them will guarantee that
Or do they have associates? Then let them bring their associates, if they speak truly
Upon the day when the leg shall be bared, and they shall be summoned to bow themselves, but they cannot
humbled shall be their eyes, and abasement shall overspread them, for they had been summoned to bow themselves while they were whole
So leave Me with him who cries lies to this discourse! We will draw them on little by little whence they know not
and I shall respite them -- assuredly My guile is sure
Or askest thou them for a wage, and so they are weighed down with debt
Or is the Unseen in their keeping, and so they are writing it down
So be thou patient under the judgment of thy Lord, and be not as the Man of the Fish, when he called, choking inwardly
Had there not overtaken him a blessing from his Lord he would have been cast upon the wilderness, being condemned
But his Lord had chosen him, and He placed him among the righteous
The unbelievers wellnigh strike thee down with their glances, when they hear the Reminder, and they say, 'Surely he is a man possessed!
And it is nothing but a Reminder unto all beings
