20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
O YOU ENWRAPPED in the cloak (of Prophethood), (1) stand up to pray for much of the night. (2) half of it, or reduce it a little; (3) or add a little), and chant the Koran very distinctly; (4) For we shall charge thee with a word of weight. (5) Indeed getting up in the night is tougher, and the words flow with strength. (6) Lo! thou hast by day a chain of business. (7) And remember the Name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with a complete devotion. (8) [He is] the Lord of the East and the West; there is no deity except Him, so take Him as Disposer of [your] affairs. (9) And have patience with what they say, and leave them with noble (dignity). (10) Leave those to Me who deny, the lovers of ease and comfort; and bear with them for a while. (11) We have heavy fetters and a blazing Fire in store for them; (12) And food which choketh (the partaker), and a painful doom (13) on the Day when the earth and the mountains will be convulsed and the mountains will [crumble and] become like a sand-dune on the move! (14) Verily, We have sent to you (O men) a Messenger (Muhammad SAW) to be a witness over you, as We did send a Messenger [Musa (Moses)] to Fir'aun (Pharaoh). (15) But Pharaoh disobeyed Our Messenger, so We seized him with a terrible seizing. (16) If you persist in denying the truth how will you escape the Day that will turn the children's hair grey. (17) on which the heaven will split apart, and His promise is done. (18) Verily, this is an admonition, therefore whosoever will, let him take a Path to His Lord! (19)
