1 Nun. By the Pen and by the (Record) which (men) write 5592 5593
2 Thou art not by the grace of thy Lord mad or possessed. 5594
3 Nay verily for thee is a Reward unfailing: 5595
4 And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character.
5 Soon wilt thou see and they will see 5596
6 Which of you is afflicted with madness.
7 Verily it is thy Lord that knoweth best which (among men) hath strayed from His Path: and He knoweth best those who receive (True) Guidance. 5597
8 So hearken not to those who deny (the Truth). 5598
9 Their desire is that thou shouldst be pliant; so would thy be pliant.
10 Need not the type of despicable man ready with oaths. 5599 5600
11 A slanderer going about with calumnies.
12 (Habitually) hindering (all) good transgressing beyond bounds deep in sin.
13 Violent (and cruel) with all that base-born 5601
14 Because he possesses wealth and (numerous) sons. 5602
15 When to him are rehearsed Our Signs "Tales of the Ancients" he cries. 5603 5604
16 Soon shall We brand (the beast) on the snout! 5605
17 Verily We have tried them as We tried the people of the Garden when they resolved to gather the fruits of the (garden) in the morning. 5606
18 But made no reservation ("If it be Allah's Will"). 5607
19 So there came on the (garden) a visitation from thy Lord (which swept away) all around while they were asleep. 5608
20 So the (garden) became by the morning like a dark and desolate spot (whose fruit had been gathered).
21 As the morning broke they called out one to another
22 "Go ye to your tilth (betimes) in morning if ye would gather the fruits." 5609
23 So they departed conversing in secret low tones (saying)
24 "Let not a single indigent person break in upon you into the (garden) this day." 5610
25 And they opened the morning strong in an (unjust) resolve.
26 But when they saw the (garden) they said: "We have surely lost our way: 5611
27 "Indeed we are shut out (of the fruits of our labor)!" 5612
28 Said one of them more just (than the rest): "Did I not say to you `Why not glorify (Allah)?' " 5613
29 They said: "Glory to our Lord! Verily we have been doing wrong!"
30 Then they turned one against another in reproach. 5614
31 They said: "Alas for us! We have indeed transgressed!
32 "It may be that our Lord will give us in exchange a better (garden) than this: for we do turn to Him (in repentance)!" 5615
33 Such is the Punishment (in this life); but greater is the Punishment in the Hereafter if only they knew! 5616
34 Verily for the righteous are Gardens of Delight in the Presence of their Lord. 5617
35 Shall We then treat the People of Faith like the People of Sin? 5618
36 What is the matter with you? How judge ye?
37 Or have ye a Book through which ye learn
38 That ye shall have through it whatever ye choose? 5619
39 Or have ye Covenants with Us on oath reaching to the Day of Judgment (providing) that ye shall have whatever ye shall demand? 5620
40 Ask thou of them which of them will stand surety of that!
41 Or have they some "Partners" (in Allah)? Then let them produce their "partners" if they are truthful! 5621
42 The Day that the shin shall be laid bare and they shall be summoned to bow in adoration but they shall not be able 5622
43 Their eyes will be cast down ignominy will cover them; seeing that they had been summoned aforetime to bow in adoration while they were whole (and had refused). 5623 5624
44 Then leave Me alone with such as reject this message: by degrees shall We punish them from directions they perceive not. 5625 5626
45 A (long) respite will I grant them: truly powerful is My plan.
46 Or is it that thou dost ask them for a reward so that they are burdened with a load of debt? 5627
47 Or that they Unseen is in their hands so that they can write it down? 5628
48 So wait with patience for the command of thy Lord and be not like the Companion of the Fish when he cried out in agony. 5629
49 Had not Grace from His Lord reached him he would indeed have been cast off on the naked shore in disgrace. 5630
50 Thus did his Lord choose him and make him of the company of the Righteous. 5631 5632
51 And the Unbelievers would almost trip thee up with their eyes when they hear the message; and they say: "Surely he is possessed!" 5633
52 But it is nothing less than a Message to all the worlds. 5634
