Noon By the pen, and by what they write
By your Lord's grace, you [Prophet Muhammad] are not mad
And, indeed, a never ending reward is there for you
And, indeed, you have a truly great character
Soon you will see, and so they wil
As to who of you is on trial
Your Lord does indeed know who has strayed from His Path, and He knows those on right guidance
Obey not then those who deny the Truth
They want you to compromise and then they will compromise.
And obey not any mean swearer of oath
Or [obey not] any gossip-monger going about with malicious gossip
Or [obey not] one who places obstacles in the way of good being done, transgressing with criminal inten
[And obey not] one who is cruel, besides being of no use to societ
Just because he has wealth and sons
When Our Verses are recited to him, he says, "These are just ancient tales."
Soon We will brand him on the nose [disgrace him]
We have indeed tried them as we tried the owners of the garden, who vowed to harvest its fruits the next mornin
And they made no exception
And then a calamity from your Lord befell it [the garden] as they slept
And by morning it lay barren as if already harvested
And at dawn, they [the owners] called each other out
"Reach your field early, to gather all your fruits!"
And so they proceeded, whispering to one another
"Let no pauper enter the garden and trouble you today."
And they went early, thinking they had the power to be firm
Then as they saw it, they said, "We must have lost our way."
"But, [no], utterly deprived are we!"
A moderate among them said, "Had I not asked you to invoke divine mercy and blessings?"
They said, "Glory be to our Lord! We have indeed been wrong."
Then they started blaming one another
They said, "Alas for us, we did indeed transgress!"
"May be our Lord will give us a garden better than this; we do indeed turn to Him now."
Such is the punishment [in this life]! And the punishment of the life to come is certainly more severe, if only they knew
Indeed, for those who fear Allah, there will be the gardens of bliss with their Lord
Would We then treat the believers like the sinners!
What is the matter with you? How ill you judge
Have you any book wherein you lear
That you will definitey have therein whatever you choose
Or do you have Our solemn pledges, binding upon Us till the Day of Resurrection, that you shall have whatever you order
Ask which of them will vouch for that [that there indeed are such solemn pledges divinely made]
Or do they worship gods besides Allah? Let them then come up with their other gods, if what they say be true
The Day the shin is laid bare, they will be called upon to prostrate themselves, but they will not be able to do so
Their glances will be downcast and ignominy shall cover them; they were called upon to prostrate [in this world], when they were safe and sound, [but they did not obey]
So leave to Me those who reject this Message. We shall rein them in, by degrees, from whence they know not
And I (Allah) give them a long rope. Indeed, My plan is fool-proof
Or do you demand some reward from them that would weigh them down with debt
Or, do they possess the knowledge of the unseen which they write down
So wait patiently for your Lord's decree! And be not like the companion of the fish, calling out in distress.
Had not his Lord's favour taken hold of him [Prophet Jonas], he would have surely been flung away in disgrace upon that desolate shore
His Lord then chose him and made him one of the righteous men
And when those who suppress the truth hear the Admonition [Qur'aan], they would almost make you stumble with their eyes! And they say, "He is indeed mad."
And it [Qur'aan] is not but an Admonition for all
