The Study Quran rendition of Surah The Pen(al-Qalam)
68:1 Nun. By the pen and that which they inscribe
68:2 thou art not, by the blessing of thy Lord, possessed
68:3 Truly thine shall be a reward unceasing
68:4 And truly thou art of an exalted character
68:5 So thou wilt see and they will se
68:6 which of you is afflicted
68:7 Truly thy Lord knows best those who stray from His way, and He knows best those who are rightly guided
68:8 so obey not the deniers
68:9 They wish that thou might compromise and that they might compromise
68:10 So obey not any vile oath-monger
68:11 slanderer spreading calumny
68:12 hinderer of good, a transgressing sinner
68:13 churlish, surly, and ignoble withal
68:14 simply because he possesses wealth and children
68:15 When Our signs are recited unto him he says, “Fables of those of old.
68:16 We shall brand him on the snout
68:17 Truly We tried them, just as We tried the owners of the garden who vowed that they would harvest its fruit in the morning
68:18 And they made no exception
68:19 Whereupon a visitation from your Lord came upon it while they slept
68:20 such that it became like a garden plucked
68:21 Then they called to one another in the morning
68:22 “Go early to your tillage if you would harvest.
68:23 So they set forth while whispering to one another
68:24 “Surely no indigent shall come to you therein today.
68:25 And they set out early, strong in their purpose
68:26 Then when they saw it, they said, “Surely, we are astray
68:27 Nay! we are deprived!
68:28 The most moderate of them said, “Did I not say to you, why do you not glorify?
68:29 They said, “Glory be to our Lord! Truly we were wrongdoers.
68:30 Then they turned to one another, reproaching each other
68:31 saying, “Oh, woe unto us! Truly we were rebellious
68:32 Perhaps our Lord will give us something better in its stead. Truly we beseech our Lord.
68:33 Such is the punishment; yet the punishment of the Hereafter is surely greater, if they but knew
68:34 Truly for the reverent there shall be Gardens of bliss in the presence of their Lord
68:35 Are We then to treat the submitters like the guilty
68:36 What ails you? How do you judge
68:37 Or do you have a book wherein you lear
68:38 that you shall have therein whatsoever you choose
68:39 Or do you have oaths binding upon Us until the Day of Resurrection that you shall have whatever you ordain
68:40 Ask them which of them shall vouch for that
68:41 Or do they have partners? Then let them bring their partners if they are truthful
68:42 On the Day when the shank is laid bare and they are called to prostrate, yet are not able
68:43 their eyes humbled, abasement shall overcome them; for they had indeed been called to prostrate while they were yet sound
68:44 So leave Me with those who deny this discourse. We shall lead them on little by little, whence they know not
68:45 And I shall grant them respite; truly My scheme is firm
68:46 Or dost thou ask a reward of them, such that they are burdened with debt
68:47 Or do they possess the Unseen, such that they write it down
68:48 So be patient with thy Lord’s Judgment and be not like the companion of the fish, who cried out while choking with anguish
68:49 Had not the blessing from his Lord reached him, he would surely have been cast upon the barren shore still blameworthy
68:50 But his Lord chose him and made him among the righteous
68:51 Indeed, those who disbelieve would well-nigh smite thee down with their glances when they hear the Reminder, saying, “Surely, he is possessed.
68:52 Yet it is naught but a reminder for the worlds
