68:1  N. (Nun.) By the pen and what they write,
68:2  by your Lord's grace, you are not a madman.
68:3  And indeed, an unending reward is for you.
68:4  And you are indeed on a great manner/character (by means of Quran).
68:5  So, you are going to see and they will see,
68:6  which of you is the crazy one.
68:7  Indeed, your Lord knows best who is lost from His way, and He knows best who the guided ones are.
68:8  So, do not obey the deniers.
68:9  They wish that you would be flexible (to appease them), then they would be flexible.
68:10  So, do not obey any insignificant oath taker,
68:11  slandering, going around (spreading) malicious lies,
68:12  preventing the good, exceeding the limits, sinful,
68:13  ill-mannered (and despicable), and after all this mean (and notorious),
68:14  even if he is wealthy and has many children.
68:15  When Our verses are read to him, he says: “Stories of the earlier ones.”
68:16  We are going to brand him on the nose.
68:17  Indeed, We test them as We tested the owners of the garden when they swore they shall pick it in the morning,
68:18  with no exceptions.
68:19  Then a disaster from your Lord came to it while they were sleeping,
68:20  so it became like a totally picked field.
68:21  Then they called one another in the morning
68:22  (saying:) “Go to your crop early if you are pickers (of the fruits)”
68:23  so they went on, and they were talking softly (saying:)
68:24  “No poor shall enter it against you (your will) today.”
68:25  And they went out early determined and capable.
68:26  Then when they saw it, they said: “We are definitely lost,
68:27  no, but we are deprived.”
68:28  The fairest of them said: “Did I not tell you: “Why do you not glorify (God)?”?”
68:29  They said: “Our Lord is flawless; indeed we were wrongdoers.”
68:30  So, they turned on each other blaming one another.
68:31  They said: “Woe to us, indeed we were rebellious,
68:32  perhaps our Lord gives us better than that in exchange, indeed we are fond of our Lord.”
68:33  That is how the punishment is, and the punishment of the Hereafter is certainly greater, if they knew.
68:34  Indeed, there are gardens of delight with their Lord for those who are cautious (of God).
68:35  Shall We then place/treat the submitted ones the same as the guilty ones (in the Hereafter)?
68:36  What is with you, how do you judge (like this)?
68:37  Do you have a book that you study from,
68:38  and in it you have whatever you choose?
68:39  Or do you have any vows (binding) on Us, reaching to the Resurrection Day, that whatever you judge is yours?
68:40  Ask them which one of them guarantees this.
68:41  Or do they have associates? Then let them bring their associates if they are truthful.
68:42  On a day when the leg is bared (and the deeds are exposed) and they are called to prostration but they cannot,
68:43  lowering their eyes, humiliation overcomes them, and they had been called to show humbleness while they were sound and healthy.
68:44  So, leave Me (alone) with anyone who denies this saying (Quran), We are going to gradually lure them to destruction from where they do not know.
68:45  And I give them time, as My plan is solid.
68:46  Or do you ask them for a wage, and they are weighed down by the debt?
68:47  Or is the unseen with them, so they write it?
68:48  So, be patient for judgment of your Lord and do not be like companion of the fish (Jonah) when he called out while he was irritated.
68:49  If it was not for a favor from his Lord that had reached him, he would have been thrown to the desert shore while he was condemned.
68:50  But his Lord chose him and made him of the righteous.
68:51  And those who disbelieve almost make you slip with their eyes (looking hatefully and sarcastically) when they hear the reminder, and they say: “He is certainly mad.”
68:52  And it (Quran) is only a reminder for humankind.
