Nuun. By the pen and what they write
You are not, by the grace of your Lord, insane or possessed
No, indeed for you is a reward unfailing
And you stand on an exalted standard of character
Soon will you see, and they will see
Which of you are afflicted with insanity
Indeed it is your Lord Who knows best who has strayed from His path, and He knows best those who receive guidance
So do not listen to those who reject it
Their desire is that you would let up, so that they might regroup
Do not compromise with this type of despicable person, ready with promises
A slanderer going about with slander
Hindering all good, transgressing beyond bounds, deep in sin
Violent and cruel, with all that– useless
Because he possesses wealth and sons
When Our signs are rehearsed to him, “Tales of the ancients,” he says
Soon We will brand them on the nose
Indeed We have tried them as We tried the people of the farm-orchard, when they decided to gather the fruits in the morning
But without making a contingency plan
Then there came on them a visitation from your Lord, from all around while they slept
So it became, by the morning, like a dark and desolate spot
As the morning broke, they called out one to another
“Go to your land in the morning, if you will gather the fruits.
So they departed, conversing in secret low tones saying
“Let not a single, indigent person break in upon you this day.
And they started the morning strong in resolve
But when they saw it they said, “We have surely lost our way
“Indeed we are shut out.
One of them more just than the others said, “Did I not say to you, ‘Why not praise God?’
They said, “Glory to Our Lord, indeed we have done wrong.
Then they turned one against another in blame
They said, “Unfortunately for us, we have indeed transgressed
“It may be that our Lord will give us something better than this in exchange, for we turn to Him.
Such is this punishment, but greater is the punishment in the hereafter, if they only knew
Indeed for the righteous are gardens of pleasure in the presence of their Lord
Shall We then treat the people of faith like the people of sin
What is the matter with you, how do you judge
Or do you have a book through which you learn
That you will have through it whatever you wish
Or do you have covenants with Us reaching to the Day of Accountability, that you will have whatever you demand
Ask them which of them will stand for that
Or have they partners? Then let them produce their partners, if they are truthful
The day that the leg will be laid bare, and they will be summoned to bow in adoration, though they will not be able
Their eyes will be cast down, disgrace will cover them, seeing that they had been asked to bow in adoration while they were whole
Then leave Me alone with those who reject this message. By degrees We will punish them from directions they do not perceive
I will grant them respite. Truly powerful is My plan
Or is it that you ask them for a reward, so that they are burdened with a load of debt
Or that the unknown is in their hands, so that they can write it down
So wait with patience for the command of your Lord, and do not be like the companion of the fish when he cried out in agony
Had grace from his Lord not reached him he would indeed have been cast up on the naked shore in disgrace
So his Lord chose him and made him of the company of the righteous
And the unbelievers would nearly trip you up with their eyes when they hear the message and they say, “Surely he is possessed.
But it is nothing less than a message for all the systems of knowledge
