Did you notice?
73:1  O thou wrapped up in thy mantle
73:2  Stand up in Prayer at night except a small portion thereof
73:3  Half of it, or reduce from it a little
73:4  Or, add to it a little - and recite the Qur'an a good recital
73:5  Verily, WE are about to charge thee with a weighty Word
73:6  Verily, getting up at night for Prayer is the most potent means of subduing the self and most effective in speech
73:7  Thou hast, indeed, during the day a long chain of engagements
73:8  So remember the name of thy Lord and devote thyself to HIM with full devotion
73:9  HE is the Lord of the East and the West; there is no god but HE; so take him for thy Guardian
73:10  And bear patiently all that they say; and withdraw from them in a decent manner
73:11  And leave ME alone with those who reject the truth, possessors of ease and plenty; and give them a little respite
73:12  Surely, with US are heavy fetters and a raging 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 will become like crumbling sand-hills
73:15  Verily, WE have sent to you a Messenger, who is a witness over you, even as WE sent a Messenger to Pharaoh
73:16  But Pharaoh disobeyed the Messenger, so WE seized him with a terrible seizing
73:17  How will you then, if you disbelieve, guard yourselves against a day which will turn children grey-headed
73:18  The day when the heaven will be rent asunder; and HIS promise is bound to be fulfilled
73:19  This, surely, is a reminder. So let him, who will, take a way unto his Lord
73:20  Surely, thy Lord knows that thou standest up praying for nearly two-thirds of the night, and sometimes half or a third thereof and also a party of those who are with thee. And ALLAH determines the measure of the night and the day. HE knows that you cannot calculate the time accurately, so HE has turned to you in mercy. Recite, then, as much of the Qur'an as is easy for you. HE knows that there will be some among you who may be sick, and others who may travel in the land, seeking ALLAH's bounty, and others who may fight in the cause of ALLAH. So recite of it that which is easy for you, and observe Prayer and pay the Zakat and lend to ALLAH a goodly loan. And whatever good you may send on before you for your souls, you will find it with ALLAH. It will be better and greater in reward. And seek forgiveness of ALLAH. Surely, ALLAH is Most Forgiving, Merciful
