20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
You, who have wrapped yourself up with a mantle, (1) Arise [to pray] the night, except for a little - (2) It may be half the night or a little less than that (3) or add to it a little; and recite the Qur'an slowly and distinctly. (4) For we shall charge thee with a word of weight. (5) Indeed getting up in the night is tougher, and the words flow with strength. (6) During the day, you are preoccupied with many activities. (7) Remember the Name of your Lord and dedicate yourself devoutly to Him. (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) for, behold, heavy fetters [await them] with Us, and a blazing fire, (12) And a Food that chokes, and a Penalty Grievous. (13) On the Day when the earth with all its mountains quake and the mountains become heaps of shifting sand. (14) We have sent you a Messenger, who will witness your deeds, just as We sent a Messenger to the Pharaoh. (15) Pharaoh disobeyed Our Messenger, so We seized him remorselessly. (16) Then how shall ye, if ye deny (Allah), guard yourselves against a Day that will make children hoary-headed?- (17) The heaven will split asunder with its grief; the promise of Allah will surely occur. (18) Indeed this is nothing but a Good Counsel; so let him who will take a way leading to his Lord. (19)
