20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
O YOU ENWRAPPED in the cloak (of Prophethood), (1) Stand up for worship during the night, except for some part of it. (2) (Worship Him) for more or less than half of the night (3) or add to it a little; and recite the Qur'an slowly and distinctly. (4) Behold, We shall cast upon you a Weighty Word. (5) Verily, the rising by night (for Tahajjud prayer) is very hard and most potent and good for governing (the soul), and most suitable for (understanding) the Word (of Allah). (6) True, there is for thee by day prolonged occupation with ordinary duties: (7) And remember the Name of thy Lord, and devote thyself unto Him very devoutly. (8) Lord of the East and Lord of the West there is no God except Him, therefore make Him your sole Trustee of affairs. (9) and endure with patience whatever people may say [against thee,] and avoid them with a comely avoidance. (10) Leave Me to deal with the deniers, lords of ease and comfort (in this life); and do thou respite them awhile. (11) Verily with Us are heavy fetters and Scorch. (12) And a food that chokes, and a painful torment. (13) On the Day the earth and the mountains will convulse and the mountains will become a heap of sand pouring down. (14) BEHOLD, [O men,] We have sent unto you an apostle who shall bear witness to the truth before you, even as We sent an apostle unto Pharaoh: (15) But Pharaoh disobeyed the messenger; so We seized him with a heavy Punishment. (16) Then how can you fear, if you disbelieve, a Day that will make the children white- haired? (17) On that day, the heavens will be rent asunder. This is the decree of God which has already been ordained. (18) This is indeed an advice; so whoever wishes may take the path towards his Lord. (19)
