Al Qalam

AL QALAM - سورة القلم

ن والقلم وما يسطرون

Both - and the pen and which is written

ما انت بنعمة ربك بمجنون

Which is uttered with joy righting wrongs with no equal

و ان لك لاجرا غير ممنون

And that presses not deferring conveying conformation

وانك لعلى خلق عظيم

And pure unequalled measurements revered

فستبصر ويبصرون

congregations understanding and being understood

باييكم المفتون

with how the hatred

ان ربك هوا علم بمن ضل عن سبيله وهوا علم بالمهتدين

that is fixed striving to get acquainted with bestowing favours on deviators appearing on the religious path and striving to get acquainted with the crooked in obedience

فلا تطع المكذبين

then not having power over the liars

ودوا اويد هن فيد هنون

they love having to love [a small thing] uncivil satisfaction
