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 the One Wrapped in piety! (Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) (1) stand up to pray for much of the night. (2) For half the night, or reduce some from it. (3) Or add to it, and recite the Quran as it ought to be recited. (4) We are about to reveal to you a mighty word. (5) Surely the rising by night is the firmest way to tread and the best corrective of speech. (6) You are indeed much occupied during the day with the affairs of the world. (7) So remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with exclusive devotion. (8) (He Alone is) the Lord of the east and the west, La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). So take Him Alone as Wakil (Disposer of your affairs). (9) And bear thou patiently what they say, and forsake them graciously. (10) And leave Me and the rejecters, the possessors of ease and plenty, and respite them a little. (11) We have fetters (for them) and a blazing fire, (12) and a food that chokes, and a grievous chastisement. (13) On a day when the earth and the mountains will tremble, and the mountains turn into dunes of flowing sand. (14) We have sent an Apostle to you as a witness against you, as We had sent an apostle to the Pharaoh. (15) But Pharaoh rebelled against the messenger, whereupon We seized him with no gentle grip. (16) How then, if ye disbelieve, shall ye escape, on a Day which shall make children grey-headed? (17) On that day, the heavens will be rent asunder. This is the decree of God which has already been ordained. (18) Surely this is a reminder, then let him, who will take the way to his Lord. (19)
