20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
O thou enwrapped! (1) worship (God) for a few hours at night. (2) half of it, or reduce it a little; (3) Or add to it, and recite the Qur'an with measured recitation. (4) Soon shall We send down to thee a weighty Message. (5) Surely in the watches of the night the soul is most receptive and words more telling. (6) Lo! thou hast by day a chain of business. (7) But keep in remembrance the name of thy Lord and devote thyself to Him whole-heartedly. (8) Lord of the East and the West; there is no god but He; so take Him for a Guardian. (9) And be patient (O Muhammad SAW) with what they say, and keep away from them in a good way. (10) Leave to Me those who belie, those who lead a life of pleasure, and bear with them yet a little while. (11) We have in store for them heavy fetters and a blazing Fire, (12) And food that will stick in the throat, and painful torment (13) On a day when the earth and the mountains will tremble, and the mountains turn into dunes of flowing sand. (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 Pharaoh rebelled against the messenger, whereupon We seized him with no gentle grip. (16) If you persist in disbelieving, how will you guard yourself against the (woe of the) Day that will turn children grey-haired, (17) The Day when the heavens will be rent asunder and God's promise shall be fulfilled. (18) Verily, this is an admonition, therefore whosoever will, let him take a Path to His Lord! (19)
