Nun. By the pen and what they inscribe
You are not, [O Muhammad], by the favor of your Lord, a madman
And indeed, for you is a reward uninterrupted
And indeed, you are of a great moral character
So you will see and they will se
Which of you is the afflicted [by a devil]
Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has gone astray from His way, and He is most knowing of the [rightly] guided
Then do not obey the deniers
They wish that you would soften [in your position], so they would soften [toward you]
And do not obey every worthless habitual sweare
[And] scorner, going about with malicious gossip
A preventer of good, transgressing and sinful
Cruel, moreover, and an illegitimate pretender
Because he is a possessor of wealth and children
When Our verses are recited to him, he says, "Legends of the former peoples."
We will brand him upon the snout
Indeed, We have tried them as We tried the companions of the garden, when they swore to cut its fruit in the [early] mornin
Without making exception
So there came upon the garden an affliction from your Lord while they were asleep
And it became as though reaped
And they called one another at morning
[Saying], "Go early to your crop if you would cut the fruit."
So they set out, while lowering their voices
[Saying], "There will surely not enter it today upon you [any] poor person."
And they went early in determination, [assuming themselves] able
But when they saw it, they said, "Indeed, we are lost
Rather, we have been deprived."
The most moderate of them said, "Did I not say to you, 'Why do you not exalt [ Allah ]?' "
They said, "Exalted is our Lord! Indeed, we were wrongdoers."
Then they approached one another, blaming each other
They said, "O woe to us; indeed we were transgressors
Perhaps our Lord will substitute for us [one] better than it. Indeed, we are toward our Lord desirous."
Such is the punishment [of this world]. And the punishment of the Hereafter is greater, if they only knew
Indeed, for the righteous with their Lord are the Gardens of Pleasure
Then will We treat the Muslims like the criminals
What is [the matter] with you? How do you judge
Or do you have a scripture in which you lear
That indeed for you is whatever you choose
Or do you have oaths [binding] upon Us, extending until the Day of Resurrection, that indeed for you is whatever you judge
Ask them which of them, for that [claim], is responsible
Or do they have partners? Then let them bring their partners, if they should be truthful
The Day the shin will be uncovered and they are invited to prostration but the disbelievers will not be able
Their eyes humbled, humiliation will cover them. And they used to be invited to prostration while they were sound
So leave Me, [O Muhammad], with [the matter of] whoever denies the Qur'an. We will progressively lead them [to punishment] from where they do not know
And I will give them time. Indeed, My plan is firm
Or do you ask of them a payment, so they are by debt burdened down
Or have they [knowledge of] the unseen, so they write [it] down
Then be patient for the decision of your Lord, [O Muhammad], and be not like the companion of the fish when he called out while he was distressed
If not that a favor from his Lord overtook him, he would have been thrown onto the naked shore while he was censured
And his Lord chose him and made him of the righteous
And indeed, those who disbelieve would almost make you slip with their eyes when they hear the message, and they say, "Indeed, he is mad."
But it is not except a reminder to the worlds
