1Nun. By the pen and what they inscribe,
2You are not, [O Muhammad], by the favor of your Lord, a madman.
3And indeed, for you is a reward uninterrupted.
4And indeed, you are of a great moral character.
5So you will see and they will see
6Which of you is the afflicted [by a devil].
7Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has gone astray from His way, and He is most knowing of the [rightly] guided.
8Then do not obey the deniers.
9They wish that you would soften [in your position], so they would soften [toward you].
10And do not obey every worthless habitual swearer
11[And] scorner, going about with malicious gossip -
12A preventer of good, transgressing and sinful,
13Cruel, moreover, and an illegitimate pretender.
14Because he is a possessor of wealth and children,
15When Our verses are recited to him, he says, "Legends of the former peoples."
16We will brand him upon the snout.
17Indeed, We have tried them as We tried the companions of the garden, when they swore to cut its fruit in the [early] morning
18Without making exception.
19So there came upon the garden an affliction from your Lord while they were asleep.
20And it became as though reaped.
21And they called one another at morning,
22[Saying], "Go early to your crop if you would cut the fruit."
23So they set out, while lowering their voices,
24[Saying], "There will surely not enter it today upon you [any] poor person."
25And they went early in determination, [assuming themselves] able.
26But when they saw it, they said, "Indeed, we are lost;
27Rather, we have been deprived."
28The most moderate of them said, "Did I not say to you, 'Why do you not exalt [Allah]?' "
29They said, "Exalted is our Lord! Indeed, we were wrongdoers."
30Then they approached one another, blaming each other.
31They said, "O woe to us; indeed we were transgressors.
32Perhaps our Lord will substitute for us [one] better than it. Indeed, we are toward our Lord desirous."
33Such is the punishment [of this world]. And the punishment of the Hereafter is greater, if they only knew.
34Indeed, for the righteous with their Lord are the Gardens of Pleasure.
35Then will We treat the Muslims like the criminals?
36What is [the matter] with you? How do you judge?
37Or do you have a scripture in which you learn
38That indeed for you is whatever you choose?
39Or do you have oaths [binding] upon Us, extending until the Day of Resurrection, that indeed for you is whatever you judge?
40Ask them which of them, for that [claim], is responsible.
41Or do they have partners? Then let them bring their partners, if they should be truthful.
42The Day the shin will be uncovered and they are invited to prostration but the disbelievers will not be able,
43Their eyes humbled, humiliation will cover them. And they used to be invited to prostration while they were sound.
44So 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.
45And I will give them time. Indeed, My plan is firm.
46Or do you ask of them a payment, so they are by debt burdened down?
47Or have they [knowledge of] the unseen, so they write [it] down?
48Then 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.
49If not that a favor from his Lord overtook him, he would have been thrown onto the naked shore while he was censured.
50And his Lord chose him and made him of the righteous.
51And indeed, those who disbelieve would almost make you slip with their eyes when they hear the message, and they say, "Indeed, he is mad."
52But it is not except a reminder to the worlds.
