20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
O the One Wrapped in piety! (Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) (1) Stand up in Prayer by night, all but a small part of it; (2) For half the night, or reduce some from it. (3) Or increase thereto. And intone the Qur'an with measured intonations. (4) We are about to cast upon you a weighty Word. (5) Surely, getting up at night [for worship] is the most potent means of subduing the self and most suitable for the word [of prayer]. (6) Indeed, for you by day is prolonged occupation. (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 have patience with what they say, and leave them with noble (dignity). (10) And leave them to Me these wealthy deniers and give them some respite. (11) We have fetters (for them) and a blazing fire, (12) And food that chokes and a painful punishment, (13) On the day when the earth and the mountains shall quake and the mountains shall become (as) heaps of sand let loose. (14) We have sent an Apostle to you as a witness against you, as We had sent an apostle to the Pharaoh. (15) But Pharoah rebelled against the messenger, so We seized him with a strong, crushing grip. (16) Then how, if ye disbelieve, will ye protect yourselves upon the day which will turn children grey, (17) Whereon the heaven will be cleft asunder? His Promise is certainly to be accomplished. (18) This is indeed an advice; so whoever wishes may take the path towards his Lord. (19)
