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
You, who have wrapped yourself up with a mantle, (1) Stand up in Prayer by night, all but a small part of it; (2) Half of it, or a little less than that, (3) or a little more; and with recitation, recite the Koran. (4) Indeed We shall soon ordain a heavy responsibility upon you. (5) Indeed, the first part of night is heavier in tread, and more upright in speech. (6) Lo! thou hast by day a chain of business. (7) Remember the name of your Lord, and devote yourself to Him wholeheartedly. (8) [He is] the Lord of the East and the West; there is no deity except Him, so take Him as Disposer of [your] affairs. (9) Bear patiently with what they say and with a fine abandonment forsake them. (10) And leave Me and the rejecters, the possessors of ease and plenty, and respite them a little. (11) for with Us there are fetters, and a furnace, (12) And food that will stick in the throat, and painful torment (13) On the Day when the earth with all its mountains quake and the mountains become heaps of shifting sand. (14) We have sent to you, (O men!) a messenger, to be a witness concerning you, even as We sent a messenger to Pharaoh. (15) But the Pharaoh disobeyed the apostle; so We seized him with a grievous punishment. (16) How, then, will you guard yourselves, if you disbelieve, on the 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) This, verily, is a reminder: let him who wills, then set out on a way to his Sustainer! (19)
