68:1  Nuun* - by oath of the pen and by oath of what is written by it. (Alphabet of the Arabic language; Allah and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.
68:2  You are not insane, by the munificence of your Lord
68:3  And indeed for you is an unlimited reward
68:4  And indeed you possess an exemplary character
68:5  So very soon, you will see and they too will realise
68:6  - That who among you was insane
68:7  Indeed your Lord well knows those who have strayed from His path, and He well knows those who are upon guidance
68:8  Therefore do not listen to the deniers
68:9  They wish that in some way you may yield, so they too might soften their stand
68:10  Nor ever listen to any excessive oath maker, ignoble person
68:11  The excessively insulting one, spreader of spite
68:12  One who excessively forbids the good, transgressor, sinner
68:13  Foul mouthed, and in addition to all this, of improper lineage
68:14  Because he* has some wealth and sons. ( * Walid bin Mugaira, who cursed the Holy Prophet.
68:15  When Our verses are recited to him, he says, “These are stories of earlier people.”
68:16  We will soon singe his pig-nose
68:17  We have indeed tested them the way We had tested the owners of the garden when they swore that they would reap its harvest the next morning
68:18  And they did not say, “If Allah wills”
68:19  So an envoy from your Lord completed his round upon the garden, whilst they were sleeping
68:20  So in the morning it became as if harvested
68:21  They then called out to each other at daybreak
68:22  That, “Go to your fields at early morn, if you want to harvest.”
68:23  So they went off, while whispering to one another
68:24  “Make sure that no needy person enters your garden this day.”
68:25  And they left at early morn, assuming they were in control of their purpose
68:26  Then when they saw it, they said, “We have indeed strayed.”
68:27  “In fact, we are unfortunate.”
68:28  The best among them said, “Did I not tell you, ‘Why do you not proclaim His purity?’ ”
68:29  They said, “Purity is to our Lord – we have indeed been unjust.”
68:30  So they came towards each other, blaming
68:31  They said, “Woe to us - we were indeed rebellious.”
68:32  “Hopefully, our Lord will give us a better replacement than this - we now incline towards our Lord.”
68:33  Such is the punishment; and indeed the punishment of the Hereafter is the greatest, if only they knew
68:34  Indeed for the pious, with their Lord, are Gardens of Serenity
68:35  Shall We equate the Muslims to the guilty
68:36  What is the matter with you? What sort of a judgement you impose
68:37  Is there a Book for you, from which you read
68:38  - That for you in it is whatever you like
68:39  Or is it that you have a covenant from Us, right up to the Day of Judgement, that you will get all what you claim
68:40  Ask them, who among them is a guarantor for it
68:41  Or is it that they have partners in worship? So they should bring their appointed partners, if they are truthful
68:42  On the day when the Shin will be exposed and they will be called to prostrate themselves, they will be unable
68:43  With lowered eyes, disgrace overcoming them; and indeed they used to be called to prostrate themselves whilst they were healthy
68:44  Therefore leave the one who denies this matter, to Me; We shall soon steadily take them away, from a place they do not know
68:45  And I will give them respite; indeed My plan is very solid
68:46  Or is it that you (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him) ask any fee from them, so they are burdened with the penalty
68:47  Or that they possess the hidden, so they are writing it
68:48  Therefore wait for your Lord’s command, and do not be like the one of the fish; who cried out when he was distraught. (Prophet Yunus - peace be upon him.
68:49  Were it not for his Lord’s favour that reached him, he would have surely been cast onto the desolate land, reproached
68:50  His Lord therefore chose him and made him among those deserving His proximity
68:51  And indeed the disbelievers seem as if they would topple you with their evil gaze when they hear the Qur’an, and they say, “He is indeed insane.”
68:52  Whereas it is not but an advice to the entire creation
