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 you (Prophet Muhammad) wrapped, (1) Stand (to prayer) by night, but not all night,- (2) Half of it,- or a little less, (3) Or add to it, and recite the Qur'an with measured recitation. (4) We are about to cast upon you a weighty Word. (5) Indeed, the hours of the night are more effective for concurrence [of heart and tongue] and more suitable for words. (6) True, there is for thee by day prolonged occupation with ordinary duties: (7) So remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with exclusive 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 patiently what they say and avoid them with a becoming avoidance. (10) And leave Me Alone to deal with the beliers (those who deny My Verses, etc.), and those who are in possession of good things of life. And give them respite for a little while. (11) Surely with Us are heavy fetters and a flaming fire, (12) And food that chokes and a painful punishment - (13) On the Day when the earth with all its mountains quake and the mountains become heaps of shifting sand. (14) Lo! We have sent unto you a messenger as witness against you, even as We sent unto Pharaoh a messenger. (15) But Pharaoh disobeyed Our Messenger, so We seized him with a terrible seizing. (16) So how will you save yourselves, if you disbelieve, on a day that will turn children old? (17) [the Day] on which the skies shall be rent asunder, [and] His promise [of resurrection] fulfilled? (18) Surely this is a reminder, then let him, who will take the way to his Lord. (19)
