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 who wraps himself [in clothing], (1) Stand up in Prayer by night, all but a small part of it; (2) (a half of it, or diminish a little, (3) Or add to it, and recite the Qur'an with measured recitation. (4) For we shall charge thee with a word of weight. (5) surely the first part of the night is heavier in tread, more upright in speech, (6) Verily, there is for you by day prolonged occupation with ordinary duties, (7) Remember the name of your Lord, and devote yourself to Him wholeheartedly. (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 patiently what they say and avoid them with a becoming avoidance. (10) Leave Me to deal with the deniers, lords of ease and comfort (in this life); and do thou respite them awhile. (11) Verily with Us are heavy fetters and Scorch. (12) And food that chokes and a painful punishment - (13) on the Day when the earth and the mountains will be convulsed and the mountains will [crumble and] become like a sand-dune on the move! (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 Fir'aun (Pharaoh) disobeyed the Messenger [Musa (Moses)], so We seized him with a severe 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) On that day, the heavens will be rent asunder. This is the decree of God which has already been ordained. (18) Surely this is a reminder, then let him, who will take the way to his Lord. (19)
