[68.1] Nun. By the Pen and the (Record) which (men) write,-
[68.2] Thou art not, by the Grace of thy Lord, mad or possessed.
[68.3] Nay, verily for thee is a Reward unfailing:
[68.4] And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character.
[68.5] Soon wilt thou see, and they will see,
[68.6] Which of you is afflicted with madness.
[68.7] Verily it is thy Lord that knoweth best, which (among men) hath strayed from His Path: and He knoweth best those who receive (true) Guidance.
[68.8] So hearken not to those who deny (the Truth).
[68.9] Their desire is that thou shouldst be pliant: so would they be pliant.
[68.10] Heed not the type of despicable men,- ready with oaths,
[68.11] A slanderer, going about with calumnies,
[68.12] (Habitually) hindering (all) good, transgressing beyond bounds, deep in sin,
[68.13] Violent (and cruel),- with all that, base-born,-
[68.14] Because he possesses wealth and (numerous) sons.
[68.15] When to him are rehearsed Our Signs, "Tales of the ancients", he cries!
[68.16] Soon shall We brand (the beast) on the snout!
[68.17] Verily We have tried them as We tried the People of the Garden, when they resolved to gather the fruits of the (garden) in the morning.
[68.18] But made no reservation, ("If it be Allah's Will").
[68.19] Then there came on the (garden) a visitation from thy Lord, (which swept away) all around, while they were asleep.
[68.20] So the (garden) became, by the morning, like a dark and desolate spot, (whose fruit had been gathered).
[68.21] As the morning broke, they called out, one to another,-
[68.22] "Go ye to your tilth (betimes) in the morning, if ye would gather the fruits."
[68.23] So they departed, conversing in secret low tones, (saying)-
[68.24] "Let not a single indigent person break in upon you into the (garden) this day."
[68.25] And they opened the morning, strong in an (unjust) resolve.
[68.26] But when they saw the (garden), they said: "We have surely lost our way:
[68.27] "Indeed we are shut out (of the fruits of our labour)!"
[68.28] Said one of them, more just (than the rest): "Did I not say to you, 'Why not glorify (Allah)?'"
[68.29] They said: "Glory to our Lord! Verily we have been doing wrong!"
[68.30] Then they turned, one against another, in reproach.
[68.31] They said: "Alas for us! We have indeed transgressed!
[68.32] "It may be that our Lord will give us in exchange a better (garden) than this: for we do turn to Him (in repentance)!"
[68.33] Such is the Punishment (in this life); but greater is the Punishment in the Hereafter,- if only they knew!
[68.34] Verily, for the Righteous, are Gardens of Delight, in the Presence of their Lord.
[68.35] Shall We then treat the People of Faith like the People of Sin?
[68.36] What is the matter with you? How judge ye?
[68.37] Or have ye a book through which ye learn-
[68.38] That ye shall have, through it whatever ye choose?
[68.39] Or have ye Covenants with Us to oath, reaching to the Day of Judgment, (providing) that ye shall have whatever ye shall demand?
[68.40] Ask thou of them, which of them will stand surety for that!
[68.41] Or have they some "Partners" (in Allahhead)? Then let them produce their "partners", if they are truthful!
[68.42] The Day that the shin shall be laid bare, and they shall be summoned to bow in adoration, but they shall not be able,-
[68.43] Their eyes will be cast down,- ignominy will cover them; seeing that they had been summoned aforetime to bow in adoration, while they were whole, (and had refused).
[68.44] Then leave Me alone with such as reject this Message: by degrees shall We punish them from directions they perceive not.
[68.45] A (long) respite will I grant them: truly powerful is My Plan.
[68.46] Or is it that thou dost ask them for a reward, so that they are burdened with a load of debt?-
[68.47] Or that the Unseen is in their hands, so that they can write it down?
[68.48] So wait with patience for the Command of thy Lord, and be not like the Companion of the Fish,- when he cried out in agony.
[68.49] Had not Grace from his Lord reached him, he would indeed have been cast off on the naked shore, in disgrace.
[68.50] Thus did his Lord choose him and make him of the Company of the Righteous.
[68.51] And the Unbelievers would almost trip thee up with their eyes when they hear the Message; and they say: "Surely he is possessed!"
[68.52] But it is nothing less than a Message to all the worlds.
