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 (Prophet Muhammad) wrapped, (1) stand up to pray for much of the night. (2) (Worship Him) for more or less than half of the night (3) Or a little more; and recite the Quran (aloud) in a slow, (pleasant tone and) style. (4) Indeed, We will cast upon you a heavy word. (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) Lo! thou hast by day a chain of business. (7) And remember thou the name of thy Lord, and devote thyself to Him with an exclusive devotion. (8) Lord of the East and the West; there is no Allah save Him; so choose thou Him alone for thy defender - (9) and endure with patience whatever people may say [against thee,] and avoid them with a comely avoidance. (10) And leave Me Alone to deal with the beliers (those who deny My Verses, etc.), and those who are in possession of good things of life. And give them respite for a little while. (11) for with Us there are fetters, and a furnace, (12) And food that chokes and a painful punishment, (13) On the Day when the earth with all its mountains quake and the mountains become heaps of shifting sand. (14) BEHOLD, [O men,] We have sent unto you an apostle who shall bear witness to the truth before you, even as We sent an apostle unto Pharaoh: (15) and Pharaoh rebelled against the apostle, whereupon We took him to task with a crushing grip. (16) If you, disbelieve, how will you be able to protect yourselves from the hardships of the day which would even turn 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 is a reminder. Let anyone who wants, seek guidance from his Lord. (19)
