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 Compassionate
O you who are wrapped up in your mantle, (1) Keep awake [in prayer] at night, all but a small part (2) Half of it - or subtract from it a little (3) Or add (a little) thereto - and chant the Qur'an in measure, (4) Behold, We shall cast upon thee a weighty word; (5) [and,] verily, the hours of night impress the mind most strongly and speak with the clearest voice, (6) whereas by day a long chain of doings is thy portion. (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 patiently endure upon what the disbelievers say, and leave them for good. (10) And leave Me (alone to deal with) those in possession of the good things of life, who (yet) deny the Truth; and bear with them for a little while. (11) We have prepared for them fetters, flaming fire, (12) and food that chokes, and grievous suffering (13) On the Day when the earth with all its mountains quake and the mountains become heaps of shifting sand. (14) Surely We have sent unto you a Messenger as a witness over you, even as We sent to Pharaoh a Messenger, (15) But Pharaoh rebelled against the messenger, whereupon We seized him with no gentle grip. (16) Then how can you avoid the punishment, if you disbelieve, on a Day that will make the children grey-headed (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)? (17) The heavens itself will be rent asunder (on that day). His promise is bound to be fulfilled. (18) Indeed this is nothing but a Good Counsel; so let him who will take a way leading to his Lord. (19)
