20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
O thou enwrapped! (1) Keep watch all the night except some, (2) Half of it - or subtract from it a little (3) Or increase a little upon it, and recite the Qur’an slowly in stages. (4) Soon shall We send down to thee a weighty Message. (5) Indeed getting up in the night is tougher, and the words flow with strength. (6) Indeed, for you by day is prolonged occupation. (7) But [whether by night or by day,] remember thy Sustainer's name, and devote thyself unto Him with utter devotion. (8) [He is] the Lord of the East and the West; there is no deity except Him, so take Him as Disposer of [your] affairs. (9) And bear patiently what they say and avoid them with a becoming avoidance. (10) And leave Me alone [to deal] with those who give the lie to the truth - those who enjoy the blessings of life [without any thought of God] - and bear thou with them for a little while: (11) With Us are Fetters (to bind them), and a Fire (to burn them), (12) choking food and a painful punishment. (13) On the day when the earth and the hills rock, and the hills become a heap of running sand. (14) Lo! We have sent unto you a messenger as witness against you, even as We sent unto Pharaoh a messenger. (15) But the Pharaoh disobeyed the apostle; so We seized him with a grievous punishment. (16) How then, if you disbelieve, will you preserve yourselves on the day which will even turn the children hoary? (17) the Day whose severity shall cause the heaven to split asunder? Allah's promise is ever bound to be fulfilled. (18) This is indeed a Reminder. Let whosoever will take the Path to his Lord. (19)
