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 the One Wrapped in piety! (Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) (1) Stay up the night long save a little (2) of one-half thereof - or make it a little less than that, (3) Or increase thereto. And intone the Qur'an with measured intonations. (4) Verily, We shall send down to you a weighty Word (i.e. obligations, legal laws, etc.). (5) [and,] verily, the hours of night impress the mind most strongly and speak with the clearest voice, (6) True, there is for thee by day prolonged occupation with ordinary duties: (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 but He. So take Him alone for your Guardian, (9) Bear patiently whatever they say, do not yield to them and keep on preaching decently to them. (10) And leave Me Alone to deal with the beliers (those who deny My Verses, etc.), and those who are in possession of good things of life. And give them respite for a little while. (11) Indeed, with Us [for them] are shackles and burning fire (12) and a food that chokes, and a grievous chastisement. (13) on the Day when the earth and the mountains will be convulsed and the mountains will [crumble and] become like a sand-dune on the move! (14) We have sent to you, (O men!) a messenger, to be a witness concerning you, even as We sent a messenger to Pharaoh. (15) In response Firaun disobeyed the Noble Messenger, so We seized him with a severe seizure. (16) If you persist in denying the truth how will you escape the Day that will turn the children's hair grey. (17) The heaven will split asunder with its grief; the promise of Allah will surely occur. (18) Lo! This is a Reminder. Let him who will, then, choose a way unto his Lord. (19)
