20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
O the One Wrapped in piety! (Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) (1) Stay up the night long save a little (2) It may be half the night or a little less than that (3) or add a little), and chant the Koran very distinctly; (4) Behold, We shall cast upon thee a weighty word; (5) Surely in the watches of the night the soul is most receptive and words more telling. (6) whereas by day a long chain of doings is thy portion. (7) But keep in remembrance the name of thy Lord and devote thyself to Him whole-heartedly. (8) He is the Lord of the east and the west, there is no deity but Him, so take Him as your Guardian. (9) Bear patiently with what they say and with a fine abandonment forsake them. (10) And leave Me and the rejecters, the possessors of ease and plenty, and respite them a little. (11) Indeed, with Us [for them] are shackles and burning fire (12) choking food and a painful punishment. (13) On a Day whereon the earth and the mountains shall quake, and the mountains shall become a sand-heap poured forth. (14) We have sent you a Messenger, who will witness your deeds, just as We sent a Messenger to the Pharaoh. (15) But Pharaoh disobeyed Our Messenger, so We seized him with a terrible seizing. (16) If you persist in disbelieving, how will you guard yourself against the (woe of the) Day that will turn children grey-haired, (17) The very heaven being then rent asunder. His promise is to be fulfilled. (18) Verily this is a reminder. So let him who desires take the way to his Lord. (19)
