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 you who have wrapped up in your garments! (1) Arise [to pray] the night, except for a little - (2) A half of it or a little less (3) Or a little more; and recite the Qur'an in slow, measured rhythmic tones. (4) We shall soon entrust to you a message heavy (with solemnity). (5) Surely getting up at night is the best means of subduing the self and is more suitable for uprightness in speech. (6) Indeed, for you by day is prolonged occupation. (7) And remember thou the name of thy Lord, and devote thyself to Him with an exclusive devotion. (8) (He Alone is) the Lord of the east and the west, La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). So take Him Alone as Wakil (Disposer of your affairs). (9) And bear thou with patience whatsoever they say, and depart from them with a becoming departure. (10) And leave Me alone [to deal] with those who give the lie to the truth - those who enjoy the blessings of life [without any thought of God] - and bear thou with them for a little while: (11) We have fetters (for them) and a blazing fire, (12) food which chokes (them), and a painful torment. (13) On the Day when the earth with all its mountains quake and the mountains become heaps of shifting sand. (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 rebelled against the Messenger, so We seized him remorselessly. (16) How, then, if you refuse to acknowledge the truth, will you protect yourselves on that Day which shall turn the hair of children grey, (17) Whereon the heaven will be cleft asunder? His Promise is certainly to be accomplished. (18) Indeed this is nothing but a Good Counsel; so let him who will take a way leading to his Lord. (19)
