20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
O THOU enwrapped one! (1) keep vigil the night, except a little (2) Half of it, or a little less than that, (3) Or increase a little upon it, and recite the Qur’an slowly in stages. (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) You have by day prolonged occupations [with Dawah work]. (7) Remember the name of your Lord, and devote yourself to Him wholeheartedly. (8) The Lord of the East and the West-- there is no god but He-- therefore take Him for a protector. (9) Bear patiently whatever they say, do not yield to them and keep on preaching decently to them. (10) Leave it to Me to deal with the affluent ones who give the lie (to the Truth), and bear with them for a while. (11) Verily We shall have fetters with Us, and a roaring furnace, (12) And a food that choketh and a torment afflictive. (13) on the Day the earth and mountains shall shake and the mountains crumble into shifting sand dunes. (14) We have sent you a Messenger, who will witness your deeds, just as We sent a Messenger to the Pharaoh. (15) Then Fir'awn disobeyed the apostle, wherefore We laid hold of him with a painful hold. (16) How then, if you disbelieve, will you preserve yourselves on the day which will even turn the children hoary? (17) The Day when the heavens will be rent asunder and God's promise shall be fulfilled. (18) Verily this is an Admonition: therefore, whoso will, let him take a (straight) path to his Lord! (19)
