68:1  N, the pen, and what they write.
68:2  You are not, by the blessing of your Lord, crazy.
68:3  And you will have a reward that will not end.
68:4  And you are of a high moral character.
68:5  So you will see, and they will see.
68:6  Which of you are condemned.
68:7  Your Lord is fully aware of those who strayed off His path, and He is fully aware of those who are guided.
68:8  So do not obey those who deny.
68:9  They wish that you compromise, so they too can compromise.
68:10  And do not obey every lowly swearer.
68:11  A slanderer, a backbiter.
68:12  Forbidder of charity, a transgressor, a sinner
68:13  Unappreciative, and greedy.
68:14  Because he possessed money and sons
68:15  When Our revelations are recited to him, he says: "Fictional tales of old!"
68:16  We will mark him on the path
68:17  We have tested them like We tested those who owned the farm, when they swore that they will harvest it in the morning.
68:18  They were without doubt.
68:19  So a passing sent from your Lord came to it while they all were asleep.
68:20  Thus, it became barren.
68:21  They called on one another when they awoke
68:22  "Let us go this morning to harvest the crop."
68:23  So they went, while conversing.
68:24  That from today, none of them would ever be poor.
68:25  And they went, ready to harvest
68:26  But when they saw it, they said: "We have gone astray!"
68:27  "Now, we have nothing!"
68:28  The best among them said: "If only you had glorified!
68:29  They said: "Glory be to our Lord. We have transgressed."
68:30  Then they started to blame each other.
68:31  They said: "Woe to us. We sinned."
68:32  "Perhaps our Lord will grant us better than it. We repent to our Lord."
68:33  Such was the punishment. But the retribution of the Hereafter is far worse, if only they knew.
68:34  The righteous have deserved, at their Lord, gardens of bliss
68:35  Should We treat those who submitted the same as those who are criminals?
68:36  What is wrong with you, how do you judge?
68:37  Or do you have a book which you study?
68:38  In it, you can find what you wish?
68:39  Or do you have an oath from Us, extending until the Day of Resurrection, that you can judge as you please?
68:40  Ask them: "Who of them will make such a claim?"
68:41  Or do they have partners? Then let them bring their partners, if they are truthful.
68:42  The Day will come when they will be exposed, and they will be required to prostrate, but they will be unable to.
68:43  With their eyes subdued, humiliation will cover them. They were invited to prostrate when they were whole and able.
68:44  Therefore, let Me deal with those who reject this narrative; We will entice them from where they do not perceive.
68:45  And I will lead them on; for My planning is formidable
68:46  Or do you ask them for a wage, so they are burdened by the fine?
68:47  Or do they know the future? So they have it recorded?
68:48  You shall be patient for the judgment of your Lord. And do not be like the companion of the whale who called out while he was in sorrow
68:49  Had it not been for the grace of his Lord, he would have remained trapped, while he was to be blamed.
68:50  But his Lord blessed him, and made him righteous
68:51  And those who have rejected almost attack you with their eyes when they hear the Reminder, and they say: "He is crazy!"
68:52  And it is but a reminder for the worlds.
