You never know ˹O Prophet˺, perhaps he may be purified,
٤
or he may be mindful, benefitting from the reminder.
٥
As for the one who was indifferent,
٦
you gave him your ˹undivided˺ attention,
٧
even though you are not to blame if he would not be purified.
٨
But as for the one who came to you, eager ˹to learn˺,
٩
being in awe ˹of Allah˺,
١٠
you were inattentive to him.
١١
But no! This ˹revelation˺ is truly a reminder.
١٢
So let whoever wills be mindful of it.
١٣
It is ˹written˺ on pages held in honour—
١٤
highly esteemed, purified—
١٥
by the hands of angel-scribes,
١٦
honourable and virtuous.
