20 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Pen (Al-Qalam) before The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
O you who wraps himself [in clothing], (1) Stand (to prayer) by night, but not all night,- (2) For half the night, or reduce some from it. (3) Or a little more, and recite the Qur'an slowly and distinctly. (4) Verily We! anon We shall cast upon thee a weighty word. (5) Prayer at night leaves the strongest impression on one's soul and the words spoken are more consistent. (6) You have by day prolonged occupations. (7) But [whether by night or by day,] remember thy Sustainer's name, and devote thyself unto Him with utter devotion. (8) The Sustainer of the east and the west [is He]: there is no deity save Him: hence, ascribe to Him alone the power to determine thy fate, (9) And bear patiently what they say and avoid them with a becoming avoidance. (10) Leave it to Me to deal with the deniers, who live a life of comfort, and bear with them a little longer. (11) With Us are Fetters (to bind them), and a Fire (to burn them), (12) And food that chokes and a painful punishment - (13) On that day, the earth and the mountains will be violently shaken, and the mountains will be turned into heaps of moving sand. (14) Lo! We have sent unto you a messenger as witness against you, even as We sent unto Pharaoh a messenger. (15) and Pharaoh rebelled against the apostle, whereupon We took him to task with a crushing grip. (16) So how will you save yourselves, if you disbelieve, on a day that will turn children old? (17) Whereon the sky will be cleft asunder? His Promise needs must be accomplished. (18) This, verily, is a reminder: let him who wills, then set out on a way to his Sustainer! (19)
