20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
O you wrapped in garments (i.e. Prophet Muhammad SAW)! (1) Keep vigil the night long, save a little - (2) Half of it - or subtract from it a little (3) or add a little), and chant the Koran very distinctly; (4) Behold, We shall bestow upon thee a weighty message (5) Truly the rising by night is most potent for governing (the soul), and most suitable for (framing) the Word (of Prayer and Praise). (6) Verily there is for thee by day occupation prolonged. (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 except Him. Take Him for your Guardian. (9) And be patient (O Muhammad SAW) with what they say, and keep away from them in a good way. (10) Leave it to Me to deal with the deniers, who live a life of comfort, and bear with them a little longer. (11) for, behold, heavy fetters [await them] with Us, and a blazing fire, (12) And food which choketh (the partaker), and a painful doom (13) On the day when the earth and the hills rock, and the hills become a heap of running sand. (14) We have indeed sent a Noble Messenger towards you, a present witness over you the way We had sent a Noble Messenger towards Firaun. (15) Pharaoh disobeyed Our Messenger, so We seized him remorselessly. (16) Then how can you fear, if you disbelieve, a Day that will make the children white- haired? (17) [the Day] on which the skies shall be rent asunder, [and] His promise [of resurrection] fulfilled? (18) This is indeed a Reminder. Let whosoever will take the Path to his Lord. (19)
