1Noon. I swear by the pen and what the angels write,
2By the grace of your Lord you are not mad.
3And most surely you shall have a reward never to be cut off.
4And most surely you conform (yourself) to sublime morality.
5So you shall see, and they (too) shall see,
6Which of you is afflicted with madness.
7Surely your Lord best knows him who errs from His way, and He best knows the followers of the right course.
8So do not yield to the rejecters.
9They wish that you should be pliant so they (too) would be pliant.
10And yield not to any mean swearer
11Defamer, going about with slander
12Forbidder of good, outstepping the limits, sinful,
13Ignoble, besides all that, base-born;
14Because he possesses wealth and sons.
15When Our communications are recited to him, he says: Stories of those of yore.
16We will brand him on the nose.
17Surely We will try them as We tried the owners of the garden, when they swore that they would certainly cut off the produce in the morning,
18And were not willing to set aside a portion (for the poor).
19Then there encompassed it a visitation from your Lord while they were sleeping.
20So it became as black, barren land.
21And they called out to each other in the morning,
22Saying: Go early to your tilth if you would cut (the produce).
23So they went, while they consulted together secretly,
24Saying: No poor man shall enter it today upon you.
25And in the morning they went, having the power to prevent.
26But when they saw it, they said: Most surely we have gone astray
27Nay! we are made to suffer privation.
28The best of them said: Did I not say to you, Why do you not glorify (Allah)?
29They said: Glory be to our Lord, surely we were unjust.
30Then some of them advanced against others, blaming each other.
31Said they: O woe to us! surely we were inordinate:
32Maybe, our Lord will give us instead one better than it; surely to our Lord do we make our humble petition.
33Such is the chastisement, and certainly the chastisement of the hereafter is greater, did they but know!
34Surely those who guard (against evil) shall have with their Lord gardens of bliss.
35What! shall We then make (that is, treat) those who submit as the guilty?
36What has happened to you? How do you judge?
37Or have you a book wherein you read,
38That you have surely therein what you choose?
39Or have you received from Us an agreement confirmed by an oath extending to the day of resurrection that you shall surely have what you demand?
40Ask them which of them will vouch for that,
41Or have they associates if they are truthful.
42On the day when there shall be a severe affliction, and they shall be called upon to make obeisance, but they shall not be able,
43Their looks cast down, abasement shall overtake them; and they were called upon to make obeisance indeed while yet they were safe.
44So leave Me and him who rejects this announcement; We will overtake them by degrees, from whence they perceive not:
45And I do bear with them, surely My plan is firm.
46Or do you ask from them a reward, so that they are burdened with debt?
47Or have they (the knowledge of) the unseen, so that they write (it) down?
48So wait patiently for the judgment of your Lord, and be not like the companion of the fish, when he cried while he was in distress.
49Were it not that favor from his Lord had overtaken him, he would certainly have been cast down upon the naked Found while he was blamed.
50Then his Lord chose him, and He made him of the good.
51And those who disbelieve would almost smite you with their eyes when they hear the reminder, and they say: Most surely he is mad.
52And it is naught but a reminder to the nations.
