20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
O you wrapped in garments (i.e. Prophet Muhammad SAW)! (1) Stay up the night long save a little (2) Half of it, or lessen it a little, (3) or a little more; and with recitation, recite the Koran. (4) Verily, We shall send down to you a weighty Word (i.e. obligations, legal laws, etc.). (5) Indeed getting up in the night is tougher, and the words flow with strength. (6) Verily there is for thee by day occupation prolonged. (7) Remember the Name of your Lord and dedicate yourself devoutly to Him. (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 with patience what they utter, and part from them with a fair leave-taking. (10) And leave them to Me these wealthy deniers and give them some respite. (11) Verily We shall have fetters with Us, and a roaring furnace, (12) and a food that chokes, and a grievous chastisement. (13) on the Day the earth and mountains shall shake and the mountains crumble into shifting sand dunes. (14) Verily We! We have sent unto you an apostle, a witness over you, even as We sent unto Fir'awn an apostle. (15) But Pharaoh rebelled against the messenger, whereupon We seized him with no gentle grip. (16) How, then, will you guard yourselves, if you disbelieve, on the day which shall make children grey-headed? (17) Whereon the sky will be cleft asunder? His Promise needs must be accomplished. (18) Verily this is an admonition; let him therefore, who will, choose a way unto his Lord. (19)
