20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
O you the (sleeping) enwrapped one! (1) Stay up the night long save a little (2) Half of it, or a little less than that, (3) Or add (a little) thereto - and chant the Qur'an in measure, (4) We shall soon entrust to you a message heavy (with solemnity). (5) Verily the rising by night! it is most curbing and most conducive to right speech. (6) You have by day prolonged occupations [with Dawah work]. (7) So remember the name of thy Lord and devote thyself with a complete devotion - (8) Lord of the East and the West; there is no Allah save Him; so choose thou Him alone for thy defender - (9) Bear patiently whatever they say, do not yield to them and keep on preaching decently to them. (10) And leave them to Me these wealthy deniers and give them some respite. (11) We have heavy fetters and a blazing Fire in store for them; (12) food which chokes (them), and a painful torment. (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 over you, just as We sent a Messenger to Pharaoh. (15) However, the Pharaoh disobeyed the Messenger and We seized him with a severe retribution. (16) Then how, if ye disbelieve, will ye protect yourselves upon the day which will turn children grey, (17) on which the heaven will split apart, and His promise is done. (18) This is indeed an advice; so whoever wishes may take the path towards his Lord. (19)
