Nun. By the pen and all they write,
you are not, by the grace of your Lord, a madman.
And you will have a never ending reward.
And you are a man of great moral character.
You will see and they will se
which of you is afflicted by madness.
Your Lord knows best who has strayed from His path, and He knows best who is guided.
Then do not obey the unbelievers.
They wish that you compromise, so they too can compromise.
And do not obey any worthless contemptible swearer
or any backbiter and slander-monger,
preventer of good, aggressor and one who is sinner,
cruel, moreover, and furthermore one who is despicable.
Just because he has money and children,
when Our verses are recited to him, he says, "Myth of former people."
We will brand him on the snout.
We have tested them, as We tested the owners of a certain garden, when they vowed to harvest it in the morning
and made no allowance [for the Will of God].
But a disaster from your Lord came upon it while they slept.
By morning it became barren and bleak.
At day break they called to one another,
saying, "Go early to your crop if you want to harvest the fruit."
So they set out, whispering,
"Make sure no poor person enters the garden today."
And early they went bent on their purpose.
But when they saw it, they said, " We are lost;
Rather, we have been ruined.
The most moderate of them said, "Did I not say to you, that you should praise your Lord's glory?
They said, "May our Lord be exalted in His glory, we were unjust."
Then they turned to one another, each blaming the other.
They said, "How terrible for us; we were aggressors.
Perhaps our Lord will give us a better substitute for it. We are turning to our Lord in hope."
Such is the punishment. And the punishment of the Hereafter is greater, if they only knew.
There will be Gardens of delight for those who are mindful of God.
Would We treat those who submit to us like those who forced others to reject Our messages.
What is the matter with you? How do you judge?
Or do you have a Book which you study?
And in it do you find all that you wish for?
Or do you have oaths from Us, that are binding until the Day of Resurrection, allowing you to have whatever you want?
Ask them which of them, will be responsible for that claim.
Or do they have partners? Then let them bring their partners, if they are telling the truth.
On the Day when legs are bared, they will be called to bow down, but will not be able.
Their eyes humbled, humiliation will cover them. They were invited to bow down while they were healthy.
So leave those who deny this revelation to Me. We will proceed against them gradually, from whence they do not know.
And I will give them time. My plan is firm.
Or do you ask them for a wage, so they are burdened with debt?
Or do they know the future, and they write what is going to happen?
So be patient for your Lord's judgment, and do not be like the fellow of the whale who called out in despair.
Had a blessing from his Lord not reached him, he would have been abandoned and disgraced on a naked shore.
But his Lord chose him and made him among the righteous.
Those unbelievers all but kill you with their evil looks when they hear the message, and they say, "He must be mad."
But it is only a reminder to all people.
