Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil)
20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
O THOU enwrapped one! (1) rise (to pray) the night except a little; (2) For half the night, or reduce some from it. (3) Or a little more; and recite the Quran (aloud) in a slow, (pleasant tone and) style. (4) Indeed We shall soon ordain a heavy responsibility upon you. (5) Surely the rising by night is the firmest way to tread and the best corrective of speech. (6) You have by day prolonged occupations [with Dawah work]. (7) And remember the Name of thy Lord, and devote thyself unto Him very devoutly. (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 be patient (O Muhammad SAW) with what they say, and keep away from them in a good way. (10) And leave Me with [the matter of] the deniers, those of ease [in life], and allow them respite a little. (11) We have prepared for them fetters, flaming fire, (12) and food that chokes, and a painful chastisement, (13) On the Day the earth and the mountains will convulse and the mountains will become a heap of sand pouring down. (14) Surely We have sent to you an Apostle, a witness against you, as We sent an apostle to Firon. (15) But Pharoah rebelled against the messenger, so We seized him with a strong, crushing grip. (16) If you persist in disbelieving, how will you guard yourself against the (woe of the) Day that will turn children grey-haired, (17) [the Day] on which the skies shall be rent asunder, [and] His promise [of resurrection] fulfilled? (18) This, verily, is a reminder: let him who wills, then set out on a way to his Sustainer! (19)
