20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
O thou enwrapped! (1) stand up to pray for much of the night. (2) (Worship Him) for more or less than half of the night (3) Or increase thereto. And intone the Qur'an with measured intonations. (4) For We are about to send down to you a message of considerable gravity. (5) Verily the rising by night! it is most curbing and most conducive to right speech. (6) True, there is for thee by day prolonged occupation with ordinary duties: (7) And remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with [complete] devotion. (8) Lord of the East and the West; there is no god but He; so take Him for a Guardian. (9) And be patient over what they say and avoid them with gracious avoidance. (10) Leave Me to those who cry lies, those prosperous ones, and respite them a little, (11) With Us are Fetters (to bind them), and a Fire (to burn them), (12) And food which choketh (the partaker), and a painful doom (13) On that day, the earth and the mountains will be violently shaken, and the mountains will be turned into heaps of moving sand. (14) Lo! We have sent unto you a messenger as witness against you, even as We sent unto Pharaoh a messenger. (15) But Pharaoh disobeyed Our Messenger, so We seized him with a terrible seizing. (16) If therefore you disbelieve, how will you guard yourselves against a day that shall make the children grey-headed? (17) On that day, the heavens will be rent asunder. This is the decree of God which has already been ordained. (18) Indeed this is nothing but a Good Counsel; so let him who will take a way leading to his Lord. (19)
