73:1  O mantled (Beloved!
73:2  Rise and stand (in Prayer) at night but (for) a short while
73:3  Half the night or decrease it a little
73:4  Or increase a little more to it. And recite the Qur’an with most pleasant pauses
73:5  Soon We shall send down to you a burdensome command
73:6  No doubt rising at night strictly subdues (the ill-commanding self), and makes the tongue deliver straight and clear speech (with the concentration of head and heart)
73:7  Of course, there are many commitments for you during the day
73:8  And continue remembering the Name of your Lord, devoted completely to Him alone (in your heart and soul), broken away from everyone else
73:9  He is the Lord of the east and the west. There is no God but He. So take Him alone as (your) Guardian
73:10  And observe patience with what they (disbelievers) utter and turn aside from them in a fine manner
73:11  And leave Me (to deal) with the denying rich money-mongers (to take revenge). And give them a little respite (so that their evil deeds may cross the limit)
73:12  Surely, We have heavy shackles and the Blazing Fire (of Hell)
73:13  And food that chokes the throat and most painful torment
73:14  The Day when the earth and the mountains shall shake violently and mountains will turn into heaps of flying away sand
73:15  Surely, We have sent towards you a Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him) who bears witness to you (seeing thoroughly your states of being) as We sent a Messenger towards Pharaoh
73:16  So Pharaoh disobeyed that Messenger, and We seized him with a devastating seizure
73:17  If you continue disbelieving, then how will you save yourselves from (the torment of) that Day which will turn the children old
73:18  (The Day) by whose severity the heaven will be split apart? His promise is bound to be fulfilled
73:19  Verily, this (Qur’an) is an admonition. So let him who desires adopt the way to reach his Lord
73:20  Surely, your Lord knows that you stand (for prayer sometimes) about two-thirds of the night and (sometimes) half the night and (sometimes) a third of the night, and (also) a party of those who are with you (join in standing up for Prayer). And Allah is the One Who keeps the true measure (of increasing or decreasing) the night and the day. He knows that you just do not have the power to encompass it so He granted you forgiveness (by reducing the toil). So recite the Qur’an as much as is easy for you. He knows that (some of) you will be ill and (some) others will be travelling in the land to look for Allah’s bounty and (still some) others will be fighting in the way of Allah. So recite as much as is easy for you. And establish Prayer and pay Zakat (the Alms-due) and lend Allah a goodly loan. And whatever good you will send forward for yourselves, you will find it in the presence of Allah much better and in reward still greater. And keep seeking forgiveness from Allah. Allah is Most Forgiving, Ever-Merciful
