In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
O the One Wrapped in piety! (Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) (1) Keep vigil the night long, save a little - (2) Half of it, or lessen it a little, (3) or add a little), and chant the Koran very distinctly; (4) Behold, We shall cast upon thee a weighty word; (5) Indeed, the first part of night is heavier in tread, and more upright in speech. (6) Indeed, for you by day is prolonged occupation. (7) And remember the name of your Lord and, leaving others, devote yourself solely to Him. (8) (He Alone is) the Lord of the east and the west, La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). So take Him Alone as Wakil (Disposer of your affairs). (9) And have patience with what they say, and leave them with noble (dignity). (10) Leave it to Me to deal with the deniers, who live a life of comfort, and bear with them a little longer. (11) Verily, with Us are fetters (to bind them), and a raging Fire. (12) food which chokes (them), and a painful torment. (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) 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 ruinous seizure. (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) The heaven will split asunder with its grief; the promise of Allah will surely occur. (18) This, verily, is a reminder: let him who wills, then set out on a way to his Sustainer! (19)
