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 one! (1) worship (God) for a few hours at night. (2) half of it, or reduce it a little; (3) or a little more; and with recitation, recite the Koran. (4) For We are about to send down to you a message of considerable gravity. (5) Surely the rising by night is the firmest way to tread and the best corrective of speech. (6) Lo! thou hast by day a chain of business. (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 god but He. So take Him alone for your Guardian, (9) and endure with patience whatever people may say [against thee,] and avoid them with a comely avoidance. (10) And let Me alone with the beliers, owners of ease: and respite thou them a little. (11) Verily with Us are heavy fetters and Scorch. (12) and a food that chokes, and a grievous chastisement. (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) We have sent a messenger who is a witness over you, just as We sent a messenger to Pharoah before you. (15) Then Fir'awn disobeyed the apostle, wherefore We laid hold of him with a painful hold. (16) Then how, if ye disbelieve, will ye protect yourselves upon the day which will turn children grey, (17) The heaven will break apart therefrom; ever is His promise fulfilled. (18) Surely this is a Reminder; so let him who will take unto his Lord a way. (19)
