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 thou wrapped up in thy raiment! (1) Stand (to pray) all night, except a little. (2) Half of it,- or a little less, (3) Or increase thereto. And intone the Qur'an with measured intonations. (4) Verily We! anon We shall cast upon thee 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) The Sustainer of the east and the west [is He]: there is no deity save Him: hence, ascribe to Him alone the power to determine thy fate, (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) Lo! with Us are heavy fetters and a raging fire, (12) And food that chokes and a painful punishment, (13) On the day the earth and mountains will rock violently, and the mountains turn to a heap of poured-out sand. (14) We have sent an Apostle to you as a witness against you, as We had sent an apostle to the Pharaoh. (15) But Pharaoh disobeyed the messenger, so We seized him with a ruinous seizure. (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) Indeed this is nothing but a Good Counsel; so let him who will take a way leading to his Lord. (19)
