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 you who wraps himself [in clothing], (1) worship (God) for a few hours at night. (2) Half of it, or a little less than that, (3) Or add to it, and recite the Quran as it ought to be recited. (4) For We are about to send down to you a message of considerable gravity. (5) Prayer at night leaves the strongest impression on one's soul and the words spoken are more consistent. (6) Verily, there is for you 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 as your protector. (9) And be patient over what they say and avoid them with gracious avoidance. (10) And leave Me and the rejecters, the possessors of ease and plenty, and respite them a little. (11) With Us are Fetters (to bind them), and a Fire (to burn them), (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) Verily, We have sent to you (O men) a Messenger (Muhammad SAW) to be a witness over you, as We did send a Messenger [Musa (Moses)] to Fir'aun (Pharaoh). (15) But Pharaoh disobeyed the messenger, so We seized him with a ruinous seizure. (16) If therefore you disbelieve, how will you guard yourselves against a day that shall make the children grey-headed? (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)
