68:1  Nun. By the pen, and what they write,
68:2  You are not, by the grace of your Lord, mad.
68:3  And indeed, for you surely is a reward unending.
68:4  And indeed, you surely are of a grand nature.
68:5  So you shall see and they shall see,
68:6  Which of you is the afflicted.
68:7  Indeed, your Lord He knows best who errs from His way; and He knows best those who are guided.
68:8  Then do not obey those who call you liar;
68:9  They wish that you should compromise, then they would compromise.
68:10  And do not obey every contemptible swearer,
68:11  Backbiter, going about with slander,
68:12  Preventer of good, transgressor, sinful,
68:13  Cruel, after that base-born.
68:14  Because he is a possessor of wealth and sons,
68:15  When Our signs are recited to him he says, 'Legends of the former people.'
68:16  We will brand him on the nose.
68:17  Indeed, We have tried them as We tried the fellows of the garden when they swore to pluck its fruits in the morning
68:18  And made no exception;
68:19  Then a visitation from your Lord came upon it while they slept
68:20  And on the morrow it was as if plucked.
68:21  And they called to each other in the morning,
68:22  'Go early to your tilth if you would pluck.'
68:23  So they set out, saying one unto another in low tones,
68:24  'No poor person shall surely enter it today unto you.'
68:25  And they went early with a determined purpose.
68:26  And when they saw it they said, 'Indeed, we have surely erred.
68:27  Nay, we have been deprived.'
68:28  The most moderate of them said, 'Did I not say to you, "Why do you not give glory?"'
68:29  They said, 'Glory be to our Lord! Indeed, we were wrongdoers.'
68:30  And some of them advanced towards some, blaming one another.
68:31  They said, 'O woe to us! Indeed, we were immoderate.
68:32  Perhaps our Lord will give us instead better than it; indeed, we to our Lord are desirous.'
68:33  Thus is the punishment, but indeed, the punishment of the hereafter is greater, if they know.
68:34  Indeed, for the pious with their Lord is the Garden of pleasure.
68:35  Then shall We make those who submit like the sinners?
68:36  What ails you, how do you judge?
68:37  Or do you have a book, in it you study?
68:38  Surely in it you shall have what you choose.
68:39  Or do you have oaths from Us, reaching to the Day of Resurrection? Surely you shall have what you judge.
68:40  Ask them, which of them will guarantee that.
68:41  Or do they have partners, then let them bring their partners if they are truthful.
68:42  The day the shank shall be uncovered; and they shall be called to the prostration and shall not be able.
68:43  Lowering their looks, abasement shall attack them. And indeed, they were called to the prostration while they were safe.
68:44  So leave Me and whoever calls this discourse a lie. We will bring them down by degrees from where they do not know.
68:45  And I shall give respite to them. Indeed, My plan is firm.
68:46  Or do you ask of them a fee, so they are burdened with debt?
68:47  Or have they the unseen, so they write?
68:48  So be patient for the judgment of your Lord, and be not like the fellow of the fish, when he cried out while he repressed.
68:49  Had it not been that favour from his Lord reached him, he surely would have been thrown onto the naked shore while he is blamed.
68:50  But his Lord chose him, and made him of the righteous.
68:51  And indeed, those who disbelieve would almost make you slip with their eyes when they hear the reminder, and they say, 'Indeed, he is surely mad.'
68:52  And it is not except a reminder to the worlds.
