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 the (sleeping) enwrapped one! (1) Stand (to prayer) by night, but not all night,- (2) A half thereof, or abate a little thereof (3) Or add (a little) thereto - and chant the Qur'an in measure, (4) We shall soon entrust to you a message heavy (with solemnity). (5) Indeed, the hours of the night are more effective for concurrence [of heart and tongue] and more suitable for words. (6) Verily, there is for you by day prolonged occupation with ordinary duties, (7) And remember the Name of thy Lord, and devote thyself unto Him very devoutly. (8) He is the Lord of the east and the west, there is no deity but Him, so take Him as your Guardian. (9) Bear patiently whatever they say, do not yield to them and keep on preaching decently to them. (10) Leave those to Me who deny, the lovers of ease and comfort; and bear with them for a while. (11) for, behold, heavy fetters [await them] with Us, and a blazing fire, (12) and a food that chokes, and a grievous chastisement. (13) upon the day when the earth and the mountains shall quake and the mountains become a slipping heap of sand. (14) We have sent an Apostle to you as a witness against you, as We had sent an apostle to the Pharaoh. (15) However, the Pharaoh disobeyed the Messenger and We seized him with a severe retribution. (16) Then how shall ye, if ye deny (Allah), guard yourselves against a Day that will make children hoary-headed?- (17) the Day whose severity shall cause the heaven to split asunder? Allah's promise is ever bound to be fulfilled. (18) This is a reminder. Let anyone who wants, seek guidance from his Lord. (19)
