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 THOU enwrapped one! (1) keep vigil the night, except a little (2) Half of it, or lessen it a little, (3) Or a little more; and recite the Quran (aloud) in a slow, (pleasant tone and) style. (4) Behold, We shall cast upon thee a weighty word; (5) Surely, getting up at night [for worship] is the most potent means of subduing the self and most suitable for the word [of prayer]. (6) You have by day prolonged occupations [with Dawah work]. (7) And remember the Name of thy Lord, and devote thyself unto Him very devoutly. (8) The Lord of the East and the West-- there is no god but He-- therefore take Him for a protector. (9) And have patience with what they say, and leave them with noble (dignity). (10) Leave Me to those who cry lies, those prosperous ones, and respite them a little, (11) for, behold, heavy fetters [await them] with Us, and a blazing fire, (12) food which chokes (them), and a painful torment. (13) On a Day whereon the earth and the mountains shall quake, and the mountains shall become a sand-heap poured forth. (14) Lo! We have sent unto you a messenger as witness against you, even as We sent unto Pharaoh a messenger. (15) but Pharaoh rebelled against the Messenger, so We seized him remorselessly. (16) How then, if you disbelieve, will you preserve yourselves on the day which will even turn the children hoary? (17) And the heaven shall be split therein. His promise indeed must be fulfilled. (18) This is a reminder. Let anyone who wants, seek guidance from his Lord. (19)
