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) Stand up for worship during the night, except for some part of it. (2) Half of it, or lessen it a little, (3) or add to it a little; and recite the Qur'an slowly and distinctly. (4) Verily We! anon We shall cast upon thee a weighty word. (5) Verily, the rising by night (for Tahajjud prayer) is very hard and most potent and good for governing (the soul), and most suitable for (understanding) the Word (of Allah). (6) During the day, you are preoccupied with many activities. (7) And remember the Name of thy Lord, and devote thyself unto Him very devoutly. (8) The Sustainer of the east and the west [is He]: there is no deity save Him: hence, ascribe to Him alone the power to determine thy fate, (9) and endure with patience whatever people may say [against thee,] and avoid them with a comely avoidance. (10) Leave Me to deal with the deniers, lords of ease and comfort (in this life); and do thou respite them awhile. (11) Verily We shall have fetters with Us, and a roaring furnace, (12) And a Food that chokes, and a Penalty Grievous. (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 a Messenger as a witness over you, just as We had sent a Messenger to Pharaoh. (15) But Pharaoh disobeyed the messenger, so We seized him with a ruinous seizure. (16) Then how can you fear, if you disbelieve, a Day that will make the children white- haired? (17) Whereon the sky will be cleft asunder? His Promise needs must be accomplished. (18) Lo! This is a Reminder. Let him who will, then, choose a way unto his Lord. (19)
