Nu’on. By the pen and what they write down,
You, (O' ‘Muhammad’), are not, by the Grace of your Lord, a madman.
For you, most surely, there will be a never-ending reward.
Indeed, You are endowed with sublime moral excellence.
You will see and they will also see
Which of you is infatuated with insanity.
Indeed, your Lord knows perfectly well who has gone astray from His path. And He knows perfectly well those who attain spiritual insight.
Pay no attention to those who refuse to accept the Truth.
They would like to (see you) compromise so that they may also compromise.
Pay no attention to any despicable oath-maker,
Slanderer, spreading vilification (in all directions),
Preventer of goodness, a sinful transgressor,
Villainous, besides all that, morally corrupt,
Even though he possesses hug wealth and many children.
When Our (Holy) ‘Verses’ are recited to him, he says: “Myths of the ancients."
We shall brand him on the snout.
Indeed, We have let them experience hardship as We let the owners of the garden experience hardship when they swore to pluck all its fruits in the morning
Without saying: “If Allâh wills it.”
So there came upon it a visitation form your Lord while they were asleep.
It became like dark gloomy night.
Then they called out to each other in the early morning:
“Go early to your cultivated garden, if you want to pluck the fruits.”
Thus, they set out while whispering to each other.
“Let not any poor enter it today while you are there.”
They went forth early in the morning, thinking that they were able to (drive the poor away from their garden).
But when they saw it, they said: "Indeed, we have gone astray.
No but the fact is we are deprived.
The most moderate one of them said: "Did I not tell you that you should celebrate the praises of your Lord and declare His divine glory?"
They said: "All glory belongs to our Lord. Indeed, we were grossly unfair and morally wrong."
Then they started blaming each other.
They said: "Woe unto us! Indeed, we were sinful aggressors.
Maybe, our Lord will give us in exchange a better one than this. Indeed, we turn in repentance to our Lord".
Such is the punishment. Indeed the punishment of the ‘Hereafter’ is greater if they did but know.
Indeed, the Pious will have, in the presence of their Lord, Gardens of bliss (in ‘Al-Jannah’)
Shall We then treat the ones who submit (themselves completely to the authority of Allâh) like the ungodly sinners?
What is the matter with you? How do you judge?
Or do you have a book in which you learn
That you will indeed have whatever you choose?
Or do you have covenants from Us on oath, extending to the day of Resurrection, that yours is surely whatever you judge?
Ask them which of them will vouch for that,
Or do they have partners? Then let them bring their partners if they are truthful.
The day will come when there will be a severe affliction. They will be ordered to prostrate themselves, but they will be unable to do so.
Their eyes will be cast down, and humiliation will cover them. They used to be called to prostrate themselves while they were yet unhurt.
Thus, leave Me alone with him who refuse this pronouncement. We will progressively lead them into their own destruction from whence they know not.
I will give them respite. My plan is firmly established.
Or do you ask them to give you a reward for (your efforts to guide them) while they are heavily burdened with debt?
Or do they have (the knowledge of) the unseen, so they write (it) down?
So wait with patience for the verdict of your lord and be not like the companion of the whale, (‘Jonah’), who cried out in despair.
Had not been a grace from his Lord reached him, he would certainly have been cast into the open land as a sinner.
But his Lord chose him and made him among the righteous.
Those who excessively indulge in disbelief (in Allâh) would almost smite you with their eyes when they hear the 'Revealer of Truth', (this Qur'an). Then they say: “Indeed, he is lunatic."
But it is nothing else than a 'Revealer of Truth' to all the worlds.
