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
You, who have wrapped yourself up with a mantle, (1) Arise [to pray] the night, except for a little - (2) Half of it,- or a little less, (3) or add a little), and chant the Koran very distinctly; (4) We are about to reveal to you a mighty word. (5) Surely in the watches of the night the soul is most receptive and words more telling. (6) You have by day prolonged occupations. (7) And remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with (exclusive) devotion. (8) He is the Lord of the East and the West; there is no god except Him. Take Him for your Guardian. (9) And be patient (O Muhammad SAW) with what they say, and keep away from them in a good way. (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) We have heavy fetters and a blazing Fire in store for them; (12) And a food that choketh and a torment afflictive. (13) On the Day the earth and the mountains will convulse and the mountains will become a heap of sand pouring down. (14) Indeed, We have sent to you a Messenger as a witness upon you just as We sent to Pharaoh a messenger. (15) But the Pharaoh disobeyed the apostle; so We seized him with a grievous punishment. (16) Then how, if ye disbelieve, will ye protect yourselves upon the day which will turn children grey, (17) And the heaven shall be split therein. His promise indeed must be fulfilled. (18) Surely this is a Reminder; so let him who will take unto his Lord a way. (19)
