68:1  Noon By the pen, and by what they write
68:2  By your Lord's grace, you [Prophet Muhammad] are not mad
68:3  And, indeed, a never ending reward is there for you
68:4  And, indeed, you have a truly great character
68:5  Soon you will see, and so they wil
68:6  As to who of you is on trial
68:7  Your Lord does indeed know who has strayed from His Path, and He knows those on right guidance
68:8  Obey not then those who deny the Truth
68:9  They want you to compromise and then they will compromise.
68:10  And obey not any mean swearer of oath
68:11  Or [obey not] any gossip-monger going about with malicious gossip
68:12  Or [obey not] one who places obstacles in the way of good being done, transgressing with criminal inten
68:13  [And obey not] one who is cruel, besides being of no use to societ
68:14  Just because he has wealth and sons
68:15  When Our Verses are recited to him, he says, "These are just ancient tales."
68:16  Soon We will brand him on the nose [disgrace him]
68:17  We have indeed tried them as we tried the owners of the garden, who vowed to harvest its fruits the next mornin
68:18  And they made no exception
68:19  And then a calamity from your Lord befell it [the garden] as they slept
68:20  And by morning it lay barren as if already harvested
68:21  And at dawn, they [the owners] called each other out
68:22  "Reach your field early, to gather all your fruits!"
68:23  And so they proceeded, whispering to one another
68:24  "Let no pauper enter the garden and trouble you today."
68:25  And they went early, thinking they had the power to be firm
68:26  Then as they saw it, they said, "We must have lost our way."
68:27  "But, [no], utterly deprived are we!"
68:28  A moderate among them said, "Had I not asked you to invoke divine mercy and blessings?"
68:29  They said, "Glory be to our Lord! We have indeed been wrong."
68:30  Then they started blaming one another
68:31  They said, "Alas for us, we did indeed transgress!"
68:32  "May be our Lord will give us a garden better than this; we do indeed turn to Him now."
68:33  Such is the punishment [in this life]! And the punishment of the life to come is certainly more severe, if only they knew
68:34  Indeed, for those who fear Allah, there will be the gardens of bliss with their Lord
68:35  Would We then treat the believers like the sinners!
68:36  What is the matter with you? How ill you judge
68:37  Have you any book wherein you lear
68:38  That you will definitey have therein whatever you choose
68:39  Or do you have Our solemn pledges, binding upon Us till the Day of Resurrection, that you shall have whatever you order
68:40  Ask which of them will vouch for that [that there indeed are such solemn pledges divinely made]
68:41  Or do they worship gods besides Allah? Let them then come up with their other gods, if what they say be true
68:42  The Day the shin is laid bare, they will be called upon to prostrate themselves, but they will not be able to do so
68:43  Their glances will be downcast and ignominy shall cover them; they were called upon to prostrate [in this world], when they were safe and sound, [but they did not obey]
68:44  So leave to Me those who reject this Message. We shall rein them in, by degrees, from whence they know not
68:45  And I (Allah) give them a long rope. Indeed, My plan is fool-proof
68:46  Or do you demand some reward from them that would weigh them down with debt
68:47  Or, do they possess the knowledge of the unseen which they write down
68:48  So wait patiently for your Lord's decree! And be not like the companion of the fish, calling out in distress.
68:49  Had not his Lord's favour taken hold of him [Prophet Jonas], he would have surely been flung away in disgrace upon that desolate shore
68:50  His Lord then chose him and made him one of the righteous men
68:51  And when those who suppress the truth hear the Admonition [Qur'aan], they would almost make you stumble with their eyes! And they say, "He is indeed mad."
68:52  And it [Qur'aan] is not but an Admonition for all
