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 Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
O YOU ENWRAPPED in the cloak (of Prophethood), (1) rise (to pray) the night except a little; (2) of one-half thereof - or make it a little less than that, (3) or a little more; and with recitation, recite the Koran. (4) We are about to reveal to you a mighty 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) surely in the day thou hast long business. (7) And remember thou the name of thy Lord, and devote thyself to Him with an exclusive devotion. (8) He is the Lord of the east and the west, there is no deity but Him, so take Him as your Guardian. (9) And bear thou with patience whatsoever they say, and depart from them with a becoming departure. (10) Leave those to Me who deny, the lovers of ease and comfort; and bear with them for a while. (11) We have in store for them heavy fetters and a blazing Fire, (12) choking food and a painful punishment. (13) (They will come across all this) on the Day when the earth and the mountains shall tremble violently and the mountains shall crumble into heaps of scattered sand. (14) Surely We have sent to you an Apostle, a witness against you, as We sent an apostle to Firon. (15) But Firon disobeyed the apostle, so We laid on him a violent hold. (16) How then, if ye disbelieve, shall ye escape, on a Day which shall make children grey-headed? (17) the Day whose severity shall cause the heaven to split asunder? Allah's promise is ever bound to be fulfilled. (18) Lo! This is a Reminder. Let him who will, then, choose a way unto his Lord. (19)
