1Nun. By the pen and that which they write (therewith),
2Thou art not, for thy Lord's favour unto thee, a madman.
3And lo! thine verily will be a reward unfailing.
4And lo! thou art of a tremendous nature.
5And thou wilt see and they will see
6Which of you is the demented.
7Lo! thy Lord is Best Aware of him who strayeth from His way, and He is Best Aware of those who walk aright.
8Therefor obey not thou the rejecters
9Who would have had thee compromise, that they may compromise.
10Neither obey thou each feeble oath-monger,
11Detracter, spreader abroad of slanders,
12Hinderer of the good, transgressor, malefactor
13Greedy therewithal, intrusive.
14It is because he is possessed of wealth and children
15That, when Our revelations are recited unto him, he saith: Mere fables of the men of old.
16We shall brand him on the nose.
17Lo! We have tried them as We tried the owners of the garden when they vowed that they would pluck its fruit next morning,
18And made no exception (for the Will of Allah);
19Then a visitation from thy Lord came upon it while they slept
20And in the morning it was as if plucked.
21And they cried out one unto another in the morning,
22Saying: Run unto your field if ye would pluck (the fruit).
23So they went off, saying one unto another in low tones:
24No needy man shall enter it to-day against you.
25They went betimes, strong in (this) purpose.
26But when they saw it, they said: Lo! we are in error!
27Nay, but we are desolate!
28The best among them said: Said I not unto you: Why glorify ye not (Allah)?
29They said: Glorified be our Lord! Lo! we have been wrong-doers.
30Then some of them drew near unto others, self-reproaching.
31They said: Alas for us! In truth we were outrageous.
32It may be that our Lord will give us better than this in place thereof. Lo! we beseech our Lord.
33Such was the punishment. And verily the punishment of the Hereafter is greater if they did but know.
34Lo! for those who keep from evil are gardens of bliss with their Lord.
35Shall We then treat those who have surrendered as We treat the guilty?
36What aileth you? How foolishly ye judge!
37Or have ye a scripture wherein ye learn
38That ye shall indeed have all that ye choose?
39Or have ye a covenant on oath from Us that reacheth to the Day of Judgment, that yours shall be all that ye ordain?
40Ask them (O Muhammad) which of them will vouch for that!
41Or have they other gods? Then let them bring their other gods if they are truthful
42On the day when it befalleth in earnest, and they are ordered to prostrate themselves but are not able,
43With eyes downcast, abasement stupefying them. And they had been summoned to prostrate themselves while they were yet unhurt.
44Leave Me (to deal) with those who give the lie to this pronouncement. We shall lead them on by steps from whence they know not.
45Yet I bear with them, for lo! My scheme is firm.
46Or dost thou (Muhammad) ask a fee from them so that they are heavily taxed?
47Or is the Unseen theirs that they can write (thereof)?
48But wait thou for thy Lord's decree, and be not like him of the fish, who cried out in despair.
49Had it not been that favour from his Lord had reached him he surely had been cast into the wilderness while he was reprobate.
50But his Lord chose him and placed him among the righteous.
51And lo! those who disbelieve would fain disconcert thee with their eyes when they hear the Reminder, and they say: Lo! he is indeed mad;
52When it is naught else than a Reminder to creation.
