Did you notice?
73:1  O you who have wrapped up in your garments
73:2  Rise to pray in the night except a little
73:3  Half of it, or lessen it a little
73:4  Or add to it, and recite the Quran as it ought to be recited
73:5  Surely We will make to light upon you a weighty Word
73:6  Surely the rising by night is the firmest way to tread and the best corrective of speech
73:7  Surely you have in the day time a long occupation
73:8  And remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with (exclusive) devotion
73:9  The Lord of the East and the West-- there is no god but He-- therefore take Him for a protector
73:10  And bear patiently what they say and avoid them with a becoming avoidance
73:11  And leave Me and the rejecters, the possessors of ease and plenty, and respite them a little
73:12  Surely with Us are heavy fetters and a flaming fire
73:13  And food that chokes and a painful punishment
73:14  On the day when the earth and the mountains shall quake and the mountains shall become (as) heaps of sand let loose
73:15  Surely We have sent to you a Messenger, a witness against you, as We sent a messenger to Firon
73:16  But Firon disobeyed the messenger, so We laid on him a violent hold
73:17  How, then, will you guard yourselves, if you disbelieve, on the day which shall make children grey-headed
73:18  The heaven shall rend asunder thereby; His promise is ever brought to fulfillment
73:19  Surely this is a reminder, then let him, who will take the way to his Lord
73:20  Surely your Lord knows that you pass in prayer nearly two-thirds of the night, and (sometimes) half of it, and (sometimes) a third of it, and (also) a party of those with you; and Allah measures the night and the day. He knows that you are not able to do it, so He has turned to you (mercifully), therefore read what is easy of the Quran. He knows that there must be among you sick, and others who travel in the land seeking of the bounty of Allah, and others who fight in Allah's way, therefore read as much of it as is easy (to you), and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate and offer to Allah a goodly gift, and whatever of good you send on beforehand for yourselves, you will find it with Allah; that is best and greatest in reward; and ask forgiveness of Allah; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful
