20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
O YOU ENWRAPPED in the cloak (of Prophethood), (1) Stay up the night long save a little (2) For half the night, or reduce some from it. (3) or a little more, but recite the Quran slowly and distinctly. (4) Soon shall We send down to thee a weighty Message. (5) Surely the rising by night is the firmest way to tread and the best corrective of speech. (6) True, there is for thee by day prolonged occupation with ordinary duties: (7) But [whether by night or by day,] remember thy Sustainer's name, and devote thyself unto Him with utter devotion. (8) [He is] the Lord of the East and the West; there is no deity except Him, so take Him as Disposer of [your] affairs. (9) And be patient over what they say and avoid them with gracious avoidance. (10) Leave Me to deal with the deniers, lords of ease and comfort (in this life); and do thou respite them awhile. (11) Lo! with Us are heavy fetters and a raging fire, (12) and food that chokes, and a painful chastisement, (13) On the day the earth and mountains will rock violently, and the mountains turn to a heap of poured-out 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) But Pharaoh disobeyed Our Messenger, so We seized him with a terrible seizing. (16) If you disbelieve, how will you guard yourself against the Day that will make children gray haired, (17) on which the heaven will split apart, and His promise is done. (18) Indeed this is nothing but a Good Counsel; so let him who will take a way leading to his Lord. (19)
