Unknown Person (Al-Muzzammil)
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 enwrapped! (1) Stand up for worship during the night, except for some part of it. (2) Half of it, or lessen it a little, (3) Or a little more; and recite the Qur'an in slow, measured rhythmic tones. (4) Behold, We shall bestow upon thee a weighty message (5) Surely in the watches of the night the soul is most receptive and words more telling. (6) During the day, you are preoccupied with many activities. (7) So remember the name of thy Lord and devote thyself with a complete devotion - (8) Lord of the East and Lord of the West there is no God except Him, therefore make Him your sole Trustee of affairs. (9) and endure with patience whatever people may say [against thee,] and avoid them with a comely avoidance. (10) Leave to Me those who belie, those who lead a life of pleasure, and bear with them yet a little while. (11) for with Us there are fetters, and a furnace, (12) And food that chokes and a 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) Verily, We have sent to you (O men) a Messenger (Muhammad SAW) to be a witness over you, as We did send a Messenger [Musa (Moses)] to Fir'aun (Pharaoh). (15) But Pharaoh rebelled against the messenger, whereupon We seized him with no gentle grip. (16) If you persist in denying the truth how will you escape the Day that will turn the children's hair grey. (17) Whereby heaven shall be split, and its promise shall be performed. (18) Surely this is a Reminder; so let him who will take unto his Lord a way. (19)
