068.000 The Pen

 

068.001

Nun. By the pen and that which they write (therewith),

068.002

Thou art not, for thy Lord's favour unto thee, a madman.

068.003

And lo! thine verily will be a reward unfailing.

068.004

And lo! thou art of a tremendous nature.

068.005

And thou wilt see and they will see

068.006

Which of you is the demented.

068.007

Lo! thy Lord is Best Aware of him who strayeth from His way, and He is Best Aware of those who walk aright.

068.008

Therefor obey not thou the rejecters

068.009

Who would have had thee compromise, that they may compromise.

068.010

Neither obey thou each feeble oath-monger,

068.011

Detracter, spreader abroad of slanders,

068.012

Hinderer of the good, transgressor, malefactor

068.013

Greedy therewithal, intrusive.

068.014

It is because he is possessed of wealth and children

068.015

That, when Our revelations are recited unto him, he saith: Mere fables of the men of old.

068.016

We shall brand him on the nose.

068.017

Lo! We have tried them as We tried the owners of the garden when they vowed that they would pluck its fruit next morning,

068.018

And made no exception (for the Will of Allah);

068.019

Then a visitation from thy Lord came upon it while they slept

068.020

And in the morning it was as if plucked.

068.021

And they cried out one unto another in the morning,

068.022

Saying: Run unto your field if ye would pluck (the fruit).

068.023

So they went off, saying one unto another in low tones:

068.024

No needy man shall enter it to-day against you.

068.025

They went betimes, strong in (this) purpose.

068.026

But when they saw it, they said: Lo! we are in error!

068.027

Nay, but we are desolate!

068.028

The best among them said: Said I not unto you: Why glorify ye not (Allah) ?

068.029

They said: Glorified be our Lord! Lo! we have been wrong-doers.

068.030

Then some of them drew near unto others, self-reproaching.

068.031

They said: Alas for us! In truth we were outrageous.

068.032

It may be that our Lord will give us better than this in place thereof. Lo! we beseech our Lord.

068.033

Such was the punishment. And verily the punishment of the Hereafter is greater if they did but know.

068.034

Lo! for those who keep from evil are gardens of bliss with their Lord.

068.035

Shall We then treat those who have surrendered as We treat the guilty ?

068.036

What aileth you ? How foolishly ye judge!

068.037

Or have ye a scripture wherein ye learn

068.038

That ye shall indeed have all that ye choose ?

068.039

Or have ye a covenant on oath from Us that reacheth to the Day of Judgment, that yours shall be all that ye ordain ?

068.040

Ask them (O Muhammad) which of them will vouch for that!

068.041

Or have they other gods ? Then let them bring their other gods if they are truthful

068.042

On the day when it befalleth in earnest, and they are ordered to prostrate themselves but are not able,

068.043

With eyes downcast, abasement stupefying them. And they had been summoned to prostrate themselves while they were yet unhurt.

068.044

Leave Me (to deal) with those who give the lie to this pronouncement. We shall lead them on by steps from whence they know not.

068.045

Yet I bear with them, for lo! My scheme is firm.

068.046

Or dost thou (Muhammad) ask a fee from them so that they are heavily taxed ?

068.047

Or is the Unseen theirs that they can write (thereof) ?

068.048

But wait thou for thy Lord's decree, and be not like him of the fish, who cried out in despair.

068.049

Had it not been that favour from his Lord had reached him he surely had been cast into the wilderness while he was reprobate.

068.050

But his Lord chose him and placed him among the righteous.

068.051

And lo! those who disbelieve would fain disconcert thee with their eyes when they hear the Reminder, and they say: Lo! he is indeed mad;

068.052

When it is naught else than a Reminder to creation.
