Faridul Haque rendition of Surah The Pen(al-Qalam)
68:1 Nuun* - by oath of the pen and by oath of what is written by it. (Alphabet of the Arabic language; Allah and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.)
68:2 You are not insane, by the munificence of your Lord.
68:3 And indeed for you is an unlimited reward.
68:4 And indeed you possess an exemplary character.
68:5 So very soon, you will see and they too will realise -
68:6 - That who among you was insane.
68:7 Indeed your Lord well knows those who have strayed from His path, and He well knows those who are upon guidance.
68:8 Therefore do not listen to the deniers.
68:9 They wish that in some way you may yield, so they too might soften their stand.
68:10 Nor ever listen to any excessive oath maker, ignoble person.
68:11 The excessively insulting one, spreader of spite.
68:12 One who excessively forbids the good, transgressor, sinner.
68:13 Foul mouthed, and in addition to all this, of improper lineage.
68:14 Because he* has some wealth and sons. ( * Walid bin Mugaira, who cursed the Holy Prophet.)
68:15 When Our verses are recited to him, he says, “These are stories of earlier people.”
68:16 We will soon singe his pig-nose.
68:17 We have indeed tested them the way We had tested the owners of the garden when they swore that they would reap its harvest the next morning.
68:18 And they did not say, “If Allah wills”.
68:19 So an envoy from your Lord completed his round upon the garden, whilst they were sleeping.
68:20 So in the morning it became as if harvested.
68:21 They then called out to each other at daybreak.
68:22 That, “Go to your fields at early morn, if you want to harvest.”
68:23 So they went off, while whispering to one another.
68:24 “Make sure that no needy person enters your garden this day.”
68:25 And they left at early morn, assuming they were in control of their purpose.
68:26 Then when they saw it, they said, “We have indeed strayed.”
68:27 “In fact, we are unfortunate.”
68:28 The best among them said, “Did I not tell you, ‘Why do you not proclaim His purity?’ ”
68:29 They said, “Purity is to our Lord – we have indeed been unjust.”
68:30 So they came towards each other, blaming.
68:31 They said, “Woe to us - we were indeed rebellious.”
68:32 “Hopefully, our Lord will give us a better replacement than this - we now incline towards our Lord.”
68:33 Such is the punishment; and indeed the punishment of the Hereafter is the greatest, if only they knew!
68:34 Indeed for the pious, with their Lord, are Gardens of Serenity.
68:35 Shall We equate the Muslims to the guilty?
68:36 What is the matter with you? What sort of a judgement you impose!
68:37 Is there a Book for you, from which you read?
68:38 - That for you in it is whatever you like?
68:39 Or is it that you have a covenant from Us, right up to the Day of Judgement, that you will get all what you claim?
68:40 Ask them, who among them is a guarantor for it?
68:41 Or is it that they have partners in worship? So they should bring their appointed partners, if they are truthful.
68:42 On the day when the Shin will be exposed and they will be called to prostrate themselves, they will be unable.
68:43 With lowered eyes, disgrace overcoming them; and indeed they used to be called to prostrate themselves whilst they were healthy.
68:44 Therefore leave the one who denies this matter, to Me; We shall soon steadily take them away, from a place they do not know.
68:45 And I will give them respite; indeed My plan is very solid.
68:46 Or is it that you (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him) ask any fee from them, so they are burdened with the penalty?
68:47 Or that they possess the hidden, so they are writing it?
68:48 Therefore wait for your Lord’s command, and do not be like the one of the fish; who cried out when he was distraught. (Prophet Yunus - peace be upon him.)
68:49 Were it not for his Lord’s favour that reached him, he would have surely been cast onto the desolate land, reproached.
68:50 His Lord therefore chose him and made him among those deserving His proximity.
68:51 And indeed the disbelievers seem as if they would topple you with their evil gaze when they hear the Qur’an, and they say, “He is indeed insane.”
68:52 Whereas it is not but an advice to the entire creation!
