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 thou enwrapped! (1) Keep watch all the night except some, (2) Half of it,- or a little less, (3) Or add to it, and recite the Qur'an with measured recitation. (4) We are about to reveal to you a mighty word. (5) Surely the rising by night is the firmest way to tread and the best corrective of speech. (6) Indeed you have a lot of matters during the day. (7) Remember the name of your Lord, and devote yourself to Him wholeheartedly. (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) Bear patiently whatever they say, do not yield to them and keep on preaching decently to them. (10) Leave the prosperous disbelievers to Me and give them respite for a little while; (11) Verily with Us are heavy fetters and Scorch. (12) And a food that chokes, and a painful torment. (13) On the day the earth and mountains will rock violently, and the mountains turn to a heap of poured-out sand. (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 Pharaoh disobeyed the messenger, so We seized him with a ruinous seizure. (16) If you, disbelieve, how will you be able to protect yourselves from the hardships of the day which would even turn children grey-headed? (17) And the heaven shall be split therein. His promise indeed must be fulfilled. (18) Verily this is an Admonition: therefore, whoso will, let him take a (straight) path to his Lord! (19)
