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 wraps himself [in clothing], (1) Arise [to pray] the night, except for a little - (2) of one-half thereof - or make it a little less than that, (3) and recite the Quran in a distinct tone; (4) Verily, We shall send down to you a weighty Word (i.e. obligations, legal laws, etc.). (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) surely in the day thou hast long business. (7) And remember thou the name of thy Lord, and devote thyself to Him with an exclusive devotion. (8) (He is) Lord of the East and the West: there is no god but He: take Him therefore for (thy) Disposer of Affairs. (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 those who give the lie to the truth - those who enjoy the blessings of life [without any thought of God] - and bear thou with them for a little while: (11) Lo! with Us are heavy fetters and a raging fire, (12) And a Food that chokes, and a Penalty Grievous. (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) Lo! We have sent unto you a messenger as witness against you, even as We sent unto Pharaoh a messenger. (15) but Pharaoh rebelled against the Messenger, so We seized him remorselessly. (16) Then how shall ye, if ye deny (Allah), guard yourselves against a Day that will make children hoary-headed?- (17) The very heaven being then rent asunder. His promise is to be fulfilled. (18) This is a reminder. Let anyone who wants, seek guidance from his Lord. (19)
