20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
O thou folded in garments! (1) worship (God) for a few hours at night. (2) A half of it or a little less (3) or add to it a little; and recite the Qur'an slowly and distinctly. (4) Surely We will make to light upon you a weighty Word. (5) Verily, the rising by night (for Tahajjud prayer) is very hard and most potent and good for governing (the soul), and most suitable for (understanding) the Word (of Allah). (6) Indeed, for you by day is prolonged occupation. (7) Glorify the Name of your Lord, the Lord of the eastern and western regions, with due sincerity. (8) Lord of the East and the West; there is no god but He; so take Him for a Guardian. (9) And bear with patience what they utter, and part from them with a fair leave-taking. (10) And leave Me alone [to deal] with those who give the lie to the truth - those who enjoy the blessings of life [without any thought of God] - and bear thou with them for a little while: (11) Verily, with Us are fetters (to bind them), and a raging Fire. (12) food that chokes and painful punishment (13) (They will come across all this) on the Day when the earth and the mountains shall tremble violently and the mountains shall crumble into heaps of scattered sand. (14) Lo! We have sent unto you a messenger as witness against you, even as We sent unto Pharaoh a messenger. (15) Then Fir'awn disobeyed the apostle, wherefore We laid hold of him with a painful hold. (16) Then how can you avoid the punishment, if you disbelieve, on a Day that will make the children grey-headed (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)? (17) the Day whose severity shall cause the heaven to split asunder? Allah's promise is ever bound to be fulfilled. (18) Surely this is a Reminder; so let him who will take unto his Lord a way. (19)
