Did you notice?
73:1  O you (Prophet! Clothed and) folded up in garments
73:2  Stand up (in prayer) by night, except a little (less)&mdash
73:3  Half of it (the night), or less than that by a little
73:4  Or a little more; And recite the Quran in slow, stately (and) rhythmic tones
73:5  Verily, soon We shall send down upon you a weighty message
73:6  Truly, the rising by night is most powerful for governing (the soul) and most suitable for (understanding) the Word (of Prayer and Praise
73:7  Verily, for you by the day, there is long (and hard) work with ordinary duties
73:8  And keep remembering the Name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him entirely
73:9  (He is) Lord of the east and the west: There is no god but He: Therefore take Him to be the disposer (Wakil) of (your) affairs
73:10  And have patience with what they say, and leave them with noble (dignity)
73:11  And leave Me Alone to deal with those in possession of the good things of life, who (still) reject the Truth; And (patiently) give them respite for a little while
73:12  With Us are shackles (to bind them), and a Fire (to burn them)
73:13  And a food that chokes, and a penalty that is painful
73:14  On the Day when the earth and the mountains will be in violent bang and the mountains will be like a heap of sand poured out and flowing down
73:15  Verily, We have sent to you (O men!) a Messenger, (the Prophet) to be a witness about yourselves, like We had sent a messenger (Musa) to Firon (Pharaoh)
73:16  But Firon (Pharaoh) did not obey the messenger; So We seized him with a stiff punishment
73:17  Then how shall you, if you deny (Allah) save yourselves against the punishment of Allah on a Day that will change children into gray-headed (old men)&mdash
73:18  When the sky will be torn apart— His Promise certainly will come true
73:19  Surely, this is a (stern) warning and a guidance! Therefore, whoever wishes, let him take a (straight) Path to his Lord
73:20  Verily, (O Prophet), your Lord knows that you stand up (to prayer) a little less than two-thirds of the night, or half the night, or a third of the night, and so do some of those with you. And Allah measures the night and day in proper parts. He knows that you are not able to keep praying the whole night. So He has turned to you (in His Mercy), therefore you read the Quran as much as it may be easy for you. He knows that there may be (some) among you that are sick; Others traveling through the land, seeking of Allah’s Bounty; Yet others fighting in Allah’s Cause. You recite, therefore, as much of the Quran as may be easy (for you); And establish regular prayer and give regular charity; And loan to Allah a beautiful loan. And whatever good you send forward for your souls, you shall find it in Allah’s Presence: Yes, better and greater, in reward. And you seek the Forgiveness of Allah: Verily, Allah is Often Forgiving (Ghafoor), Most Merciful (Raheem)
