20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
O you wrapped in garments (i.e. Prophet Muhammad SAW)! (1) Keep watch all the night except some, (2) half the night, or a little less (3) Or add to it, and recite the Quran as it ought to be recited. (4) Verily, We shall send down to you a weighty Word (i.e. obligations, legal laws, etc.). (5) Truly the rising by night is most potent for governing (the soul), and most suitable for (framing) the Word (of Prayer and Praise). (6) True, there is for thee by day prolonged occupation with ordinary duties: (7) And remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with [complete] devotion. (8) Lord of the East and the West; there is no god but He; so take Him for a Guardian. (9) and endure with patience whatever people may say [against thee,] and avoid them with a comely avoidance. (10) And leave them to Me these wealthy deniers and give them some respite. (11) for with Us there are fetters, and a furnace, (12) choking food and a painful punishment. (13) On a day when the earth and the mountains will tremble, and the mountains turn into dunes of flowing sand. (14) Lo! We have sent unto you a messenger as witness against you, even as We sent unto Pharaoh a messenger. (15) However, the Pharaoh disobeyed the Messenger and We seized him with a severe retribution. (16) Then how can you fear, if you disbelieve, a Day that will make the children white- haired? (17) The Day when the heavens will be rent asunder and God's promise shall be fulfilled. (18) Verily, this is an admonition, therefore whosoever will, let him take a Path to His Lord! (19)
