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) worship (God) for a few hours at night. (2) A half thereof, or abate a little thereof, (3) Or increase thereto. And intone the Qur'an with measured intonations. (4) Indeed, We will cast upon you a heavy 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) You have by day prolonged occupations. (7) And remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with (exclusive) devotion. (8) Lord of the East and the West; there is no god but He; so take Him for a Guardian. (9) Bear patiently with what they say, and ignore them politely. (10) And leave Me and the rejecters, the possessors of ease and plenty, and respite them a little. (11) Indeed, with Us [for them] are shackles and burning fire (12) and a food that chokes, and a grievous chastisement. (13) On the day when the earth and the hills rock, and the hills become a heap of running sand. (14) Verily, We have sent to you (O men) a Messenger (Muhammad SAW) to be a witness over you, as We did send a Messenger [Musa (Moses)] to Fir'aun (Pharaoh). (15) But Pharaoh disobeyed the messenger; so We seized him with a heavy Punishment. (16) If you, disbelieve, how will you be able to protect yourselves from the hardships of the day which would even turn children grey-headed? (17) And the heaven shall be split therein. His promise indeed must be fulfilled. (18) Lo! This is a Reminder. Let him who will, then, choose a way unto his Lord. (19)
