20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
O you the (sleeping) enwrapped one! (1) Stand (to prayer) by night, but not all night,- (2) A half thereof, or abate a little thereof, (3) Or a little more, and recite the Qur'an slowly and distinctly. (4) For We are about to send down to you a message of considerable gravity. (5) surely the first part of the night is heavier in tread, more upright in speech, (6) Verily there is for thee by day occupation prolonged. (7) But [whether by night or by day,] remember thy Sustainer's name, and devote thyself unto Him with utter 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) And have patience with what they say, and leave them with noble (dignity). (10) Leave those to Me who deny, the lovers of ease and comfort; and bear with them for a while. (11) Surely with Us are heavy fetters and a flaming fire, (12) And a Food that chokes, and a Penalty Grievous. (13) On the Day the earth and the mountains will convulse and the mountains will become a heap of sand pouring down. (14) BEHOLD, [O men,] We have sent unto you an apostle who shall bear witness to the truth before you, even as We sent an apostle unto Pharaoh: (15) But Fir'aun (Pharaoh) disobeyed the Messenger [Musa (Moses)], so We seized him with a severe punishment. (16) How then, if you disbelieve, will you preserve yourselves on the day which will even turn the children hoary? (17) On that day, the heavens will be rent asunder. This is the decree of God which has already been ordained. (18) Verily this is an Admonition: therefore, whoso will, let him take a (straight) path to his Lord! (19)
