        نُونْ وَالْقَلَمِ وَمَايَسْطُرُونَ  
  5270 2692 20 1 68:1     Nün, by Nün. By the pen and what they write.  
         مَا أَنْتَ بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّكَ بِمَجْنُونٍ  
  5271 2693 21 2 1387 68:2     Regarding your Lord's blessings, you are not crazy.   
        وَإِنَّ لَكَ لأجْرًا غَيْرَ مَمْنُونٍ  
  5272 2694 22 3 1388 68:3     And indeed there will be a well deserved recompense for you.   
        وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلى خُلُقٍ عَظِيم  
  5273 2695 23 4 68:4     And you possess a great moral character.   
        فَسَتُبْصِرُ وَيُبْصِرُونَ  
  5274 2696 24 5 1389 68:5     You will soon see and they will also see-   
        بِأَيِّكُمُ الْمَفْتُونُ  
  5275 2697 25 6 68:6     -which one of you is being tested.  
        إِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَنْ ضَلَّ عَنْ سَبِيلِهِ وَهُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِالْمُهْتَدِينَ  
  5276 2698 26 7 1390 68:7     Indeed your Lord knows best who has strayed off His path, and He knows best the guided ones.   
        فَلا تُطِعِ الْمُكَذِّبِينَ  
  5277 2699 27 8 68:8     Therefore, do not obey the rejecters.  
        وَدُّوا لَوْ تُدْهِنُ فَيُدْهِنُونَ  
  5278 2700 28 9 68:9     They love to compromise so that you may compromise.    
        وَلا تُطِعْ كُلَّ حَلافٍ مَهِينٍ  
  5279 2701 29 10 68:10     And do not obey every lowly swearer,-   
        هَمَّازٍ مَشَّاءٍ بِنَمِيمٍ  
  5280 2702 30 11 1391 68:11      -a slanderer, a ubiquitous backbiter, a malicious gossiper,-  
        مَنَّاعٍ لِلْخَيْرِ مُعْتَدٍ أَثِيمٍ  
  5281 2703 31 12 68:12      -forbidder of righteousness, transgressor, sinner.   
        عُتُلٍّ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ زَنِيمٍ  
  5282 2704 32 13 1392 68:13     Cruel and utterly useless,-   
        أَنْ كَانَ ذَا مَالٍ وَبَنِينَ  
  5283 2705 33 14 68:14     -although he possesses money and sons.  
        إِذَا تُتْلَى عَلَيْهِ آيَتُنَا قَالَ أَسَطِيرُ الأوَّلِينَ  
  5284 2706 34 15 68:15     When Our proofs are recited to him, he says, tales from the past.  
        سَنَسِمُهُ عَلَى الْخُرْطُومِ  
  5285 2707 35 16 68:16     We will soon mark his nose.  
        إِنَّا بَلَوْنَاهُمْ كَمَا بَلَوْنَا أَصْحَبَ الْجَنَّةِ إِذْ أَقْسَمُوا لَيَصْرِمُنَّهَا مُصْبِحِينَ  
  5286 2708 36 17 1393 68:17     Indeed, We tested them just as We tested the proprietors of the garden, as they were confident to pick the fruits in the morning.  
        وَلا يَسْتَثْنُونَ  
  5287 2709 37 18 68:18     However, they had no idea.    
        فَطَافَ عَلَيْهَا طَائِفٌ مِنْ رَبِّكَ وَهُمْ نَائِمُونَ  
  5288 2710 38 19 1394 68:19     Then, a visitor from your Lord arrived while they were asleep.    
        فَأَصْبَحَتْ كَالصَّرِيمِ  
  5289 2711 39 20 68:20     Consequently, by the morning, it became completely barren.   
        فَتَنَادَوْا مُصْبِحِينَ  
  5290 2712 40 21 68:21     In the morning, they announced,-  
        أَنِ اغْدُوا عَلَى حَرْثِكُمْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ صَرِمِينَ  
  5291 2713 41 22 68:22     -it is morning, go to your harvest, if you are to reap it.   
        فَانْطَلَقُوا وَهُمْ يَتَخَفَتُونَ  
  5292 2714 42 23 1395 68:23     They therefore departed, whispering,-  
        أَنْ لا يَدْخُلَنَّهَا الْيَوْمَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِسْكِينٌ  
  5293 2715 43 24 68:24     -do not let any needy person enter it today.  
        وَغَدَوْا عَلَى حَرْدٍ قَدِرِينَ  
  5294 2716 44 25 68:25     And so they started the morning, completely resolute.   
        فَلَمَّا رَأَوْهَا قَالُوا إِنَّا لَضَالُّونَ  
  5295 2717 45 26 68:26     But when they saw it, they said, we have certainly lost.  
        بَلْ نَحْنُ مَحْرُومُونَ  
  5296 2718 46 27 68:27     Yes indeed, we have been deprived.  
        قَالَ أَوْسَطُهُمْ أَلَمْ أَقُلْ لَكُمْ لَوْلا تُسَبِّحُونَ  
  5297 2719 47 28 68:28     The just one amongst them said; did I not tell you that you should glorify?   
        قَالُوا سُبْحَنَ رَبِّنَا إِنَّا كُنَّا ظَلِمِينَ  
  5298 2720 48 29 1396 68:29     They said; glory to our Lord, we have certainly been transgressors.    
        فَأَقْبَلَ بَعْضُهُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ يَتَلوَمُونَ  
  5299 2721 49 30 68:30     Then they turned to one another blaming.   
        قَالُوا يَا وَيْلَنَا إِنَّا كُنَّا طَغِينَ  
  5300 2722 50 31 1397 68:31     They said; woe to us, we have indeed been rebellious.   
        عَسَى رَبُّنَا أَنْ يُبْدِلَنَا خَيْرًا مِنْهَا إِنَّا إِلَى رَبِّنَا رَغِبُونَ  
  5301 2723 51 32 68:32     Perhaps, our Lord will give us in exchange something better than this; we certainly seek our Lord.    
        كَذَلِكَ الْعَذَابُ وَلَعَذَابُ الآخِرَةِ أَكْبَرُ لَوْ كَانُوا يَعْلَمُونَ  
  5302 2724 52 33 68:33     Such is the suffering; however, the suffering of the Hereafter is far greater.  If they only knew.  
        إِنَّ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِمْ جَنَّتِ النَّعِيمِ  
  5303 2725 53 34 68:34     Surely, the righteous will be at their Lord in blissful paradises.   
        أَفَنَجْعَلُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ كَالْمُجْرِمِينَ  
  5304 2726 54 35 68:35     Shall We therefore treat the peace offerers like the guilty?  
        مَا لَكُمْ كَيْفَ تَحْكُمُونَ  
  5305 2727 55 36 68:36     What is the matter with your judgment?   
        أَمْ لَكُمْ كِتَبٌ فِيهِ تَدْرُسُونَ  
  5306 2728 56 37 1398 68:37     Do you have a book through which you learn?  
        إِنَّ لَكُمْ فِيهِ لَمَا تَخَيَّرُونَ  
  5307 2729 57 38 68:38     Can you indeed find in it anything you like?   
        أَمْ لَكُمْ أَيْمَنٌ عَلَيْنَا بَلِغَةٌ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَمَةِ إِنَّ لَكُمْ لَمَا تَحْكُمُونَ  
  5308 2730 58 39 68:39     Have you taken an oath from Us until the Day of Resurrection that you indeed shall have anything you want?     
        سَلْهُمْ أَيُّهُمْ بِذَلِكَ زَعِيمٌ  
  5309 2731 59 40 68:40     Ask them, is this what they think?  
             أَمْ لَهُمْ شُرَكَاءُ فَلْيَأْتُوا بِشُرَكَائِهِمْ إِنْ كَانُوا صَدِقِينَ  
  5310 2732 60 41 1399 68:41     Do they have partners for god? Then let them bring forth their partners for god, if they are truthful.  
        يَوْمَ يُكْشَفُ عَنْ سَاقٍ وَيُدْعَوْنَ إِلَى السُّجُودِ فَلا يَسْتَطِيعُونَ  
  5311 2733 61 42 68:42     The day when they will be completely exposed and they will be invited to fall prostrate but they cannot.   
        خَشِعَةً أَبْصَرُهُمْ تَرْهَقُهُمْ ذِلَّةٌ وَقَدْ كَانُوا يُدْعَوْنَ إِلَى السُّجُودِ وَهُمْ سَلِمُونَ  
  5312 2734 62 43 1400 68:43     With their eyes subdued, overwhelmed with humility, they realize they were invited to fall prostrate when they were whole and able.    
        فَذَرْنِي وَمَنْ يُكَذِّبُ بِهَذَا الْحَدِيثِ سَنَسْتَدْرِجُهُمْ مِنْ حَيْثُ لا يَعْلَمُونَ  
  5313 2735 63 44 68:44     Therefore, do not blame Me, and whoever rejects this narration, We will put them in their places from where they least expect.   
        وَأُمْلِي لَهُمْ إِنَّ كَيْدِي مَتِينٌ  
  5314 2736 64 45 68:45     And inform them that My system is indeed formidable.    
        أَمْ تَسْأَلُهُمْ أَجْرًا فَهُمْ مِنْ مَغْرَمٍ مُثْقَلُونَ  
  5315 2737 65 46 68:46     Are you asking them for a wage that heavily burdens them?    
        أَمْ عِنْدَهُمُ الْغَيْبُ فَهُمْ يَكْتُبُونَ  
  5316 2738 66 47 1401 68:47     Do they know the future and have recorded it?    
        فَاصْبِرْ لِحُكْمِ رَبِّكَ وَلا تَكُنْ كَصَاحِبِ الْحُوتِ إِذْ نَادَى وَهُوَ مَكْظُومٌ  
  5317 2739 67 48 68:48     Therefore, be patient for your Lord's judgment and do not be like the companion of the whale, as he called out in agony.  
        لَوْلا أَنْ تَدَارَكَهُ نِعْمَةٌ مِنْ رَبِّهِ لَنُبِذَ بِالْعَرَاءِ وَهُوَ مَذْمُومٌ  
  5318 2740 68 49 68:49     If it were not for a blessing from his Lord that touched him, he would have been thrown into the desert in disgrace.    
        فَاجْتَبَهُ رَبُّهُ فَجَعَلَهُ مِنَ الصَّلِحِينَ  
  5319 2741 69 50 68:50     But, His Lord chose him and made him one of the righteous ones.    
        وَإِنْ يَكَادُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَيُزْلِقُونَكَ بِأَبْصَرِهِمْ لَمَّا سَمِعُوا الذِّكْرَ وَيَقُولُونَ إِنَّهُ لَمَجْنُونٌ  
  5320 2742 70 51 68:51     And the unfaithful almost want to wipe you out with their eyes when they hear the message; and they say; he is surely crazy.  
        وَمَا هُوَ إِلا ذِكْرٌ لِلْعَلَمِينَ  
  5321 2743 71 52 68:52     And this is but a message to all.
