BackThe Pen - Al-Qalam


سورة القلم
On the day when there shall be a severe affliction, and they shall be called upon to make obeisance, but they shall not be able,
Their looks cast down, abasement shall overtake them; and they were called upon to make obeisance indeed while yet they were safe.
So leave Me and him who rejects this announcement; We will overtake them by degrees, from whence they perceive not:
And I do bear with them, surely My plan is firm.
Or do you ask from them a reward, so that they are burdened with debt?
Or have they (the knowledge of) the unseen, so that they write (it) down?
So 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.
