20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
O you who have wrapped up in your garments! (1) Stay up the night long save a little (2) Half of it,- or a little less, (3) or a little more; and with recitation, recite the Koran. (4) Surely We will make to light upon you a weighty Word. (5) Prayer at night leaves the strongest impression on one's soul and the words spoken are more consistent. (6) Surely you have in the day time a long 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 Allah save Him; so choose thou Him alone for thy defender - (9) And have patience with what they say, and leave them with noble (dignity). (10) Leave it to Me to deal with the deniers, who live a life of comfort, and bear with them a little longer. (11) Surely with Us are heavy fetters and a flaming fire, (12) and food that chokes, and a painful chastisement, (13) One Day the earth and the mountains will be in violent commotion. And the mountains will be as a heap of sand poured out and flowing down. (14) Surely We have sent to you a Messenger as a witness over you, just as We had sent a Messenger to Pharaoh. (15) But Pharaoh disobeyed the messenger, so We seized him with a ruinous seizure. (16) How then, if you disbelieve, will you preserve yourselves on the day which will even turn the children hoary? (17) the Day whose severity shall cause the heaven to split asunder? Allah's promise is ever bound to be fulfilled. (18) This is a reminder. Let anyone who wants, seek guidance from his Lord. (19)
