Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
O THOU enwrapped one! (1) Keep awake [in prayer] at night, all but a small part (2) half the night, or a little less (3) or a little more, but recite the Quran slowly and distinctly. (4) Behold, We shall bestow upon thee a weighty message (5) Surely getting up at night is the best means of subduing the self and is more suitable for uprightness in speech. (6) You are indeed much occupied during the day with the affairs of the world. (7) And remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with [complete] devotion. (8) He is the Lord of the East and the West; there is no god except Him. Take Him for your Guardian. (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) With Us are Fetters (to bind them), and a Fire (to burn them), (12) And a food that choketh and a torment afflictive. (13) On the Day the earth and the mountains will convulse and the mountains will become a heap of sand pouring down. (14) Surely We have sent to you a Messenger as a witness over you, just as We had sent a Messenger to Pharaoh. (15) But the Pharaoh disobeyed the apostle; so We seized him with a grievous punishment. (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) Whereby heaven shall be split, and its promise shall be performed. (18) This, verily, is a reminder: let him who wills, then set out on a way to his Sustainer! (19)
