20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
O thou wrapped up in thy raiment! (1) Keep awake [in prayer] at night, all but a small part (2) half the night, or a little less (3) Or add to it, and recite the Qur'an with measured recitation. (4) Soon shall We send down to thee a weighty Message. (5) Surely, getting up at night [for worship] is the most potent means of subduing the self and most suitable for the word [of prayer]. (6) You have by day prolonged occupations. (7) So remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with exclusive devotion. (8) The Sustainer of the east and the west [is He]: there is no deity save Him: hence, ascribe to Him alone the power to determine thy fate, (9) And bear patiently what they say and avoid them with a becoming avoidance. (10) Leave the prosperous disbelievers to Me and give them respite for a little while; (11) Verily We shall have fetters with Us, and a roaring furnace, (12) and food that chokes, and a painful chastisement, (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) We have sent a messenger who is a witness over you, just as We sent a messenger to Pharoah before you. (15) But Fir'aun (Pharaoh) disobeyed the Messenger [Musa (Moses)], so We seized him with a severe punishment. (16) Then how can you fear, if you disbelieve, a Day that will make the children white- haired? (17) the Day whose severity shall cause the heaven to split asunder? Allah's promise is ever bound to be fulfilled. (18) Lo! This is a Reminder. Let him who will, then, choose a way unto his Lord. (19)
