Nun. By the pen and that which they inscribe
thou art not, by the blessing of thy Lord, possessed
Truly thine shall be a reward unceasing
And truly thou art of an exalted character
So thou wilt see and they will se
which of you is afflicted
Truly thy Lord knows best those who stray from His way, and He knows best those who are rightly guided
so obey not the deniers
They wish that thou might compromise and that they might compromise
So obey not any vile oath-monger
slanderer spreading calumny
hinderer of good, a transgressing sinner
churlish, surly, and ignoble withal
simply because he possesses wealth and children
When Our signs are recited unto him he says, “Fables of those of old.
We shall brand him on the snout
Truly We tried them, just as We tried the owners of the garden who vowed that they would harvest its fruit in the morning
And they made no exception
Whereupon a visitation from your Lord came upon it while they slept
such that it became like a garden plucked
Then they called to one another in the morning
“Go early to your tillage if you would harvest.
So they set forth while whispering to one another
“Surely no indigent shall come to you therein today.
And they set out early, strong in their purpose
Then when they saw it, they said, “Surely, we are astray
Nay! we are deprived!
The most moderate of them said, “Did I not say to you, why do you not glorify?
They said, “Glory be to our Lord! Truly we were wrongdoers.
Then they turned to one another, reproaching each other
saying, “Oh, woe unto us! Truly we were rebellious
Perhaps our Lord will give us something better in its stead. Truly we beseech our Lord.
Such is the punishment; yet the punishment of the Hereafter is surely greater, if they but knew
Truly for the reverent there shall be Gardens of bliss in the presence of their Lord
Are We then to treat the submitters like the guilty
What ails you? How do you judge
Or do you have a book wherein you lear
that you shall have therein whatsoever you choose
Or do you have oaths binding upon Us until the Day of Resurrection that you shall have whatever you ordain
Ask them which of them shall vouch for that
Or do they have partners? Then let them bring their partners if they are truthful
On the Day when the shank is laid bare and they are called to prostrate, yet are not able
their eyes humbled, abasement shall overcome them; for they had indeed been called to prostrate while they were yet sound
So leave Me with those who deny this discourse. We shall lead them on little by little, whence they know not
And I shall grant them respite; truly My scheme is firm
Or dost thou ask a reward of them, such that they are burdened with debt
Or do they possess the Unseen, such that they write it down
So be patient with thy Lord’s Judgment and be not like the companion of the fish, who cried out while choking with anguish
Had not the blessing from his Lord reached him, he would surely have been cast upon the barren shore still blameworthy
But his Lord chose him and made him among the righteous
Indeed, those who disbelieve would well-nigh smite thee down with their glances when they hear the Reminder, saying, “Surely, he is possessed.
Yet it is naught but a reminder for the worlds
