Oh you invested (with the mission),
Stand (in prayer) most of the night,
Half of it, or a little less,
Or more, and recite the Qur´an in measure,
We shall entrust you with a heavy statement.
The night-time has greater impact and speech is more pronounced in it.
During the day you have a busy schedule.
And remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him.
The Lord of the East and the West, there is no god but Him, so take Him as a protector.
And have patience with what they say and part from them nicely.
And leave the deniers in their comfort to Me and give them some time.
We have shackles and hell-fire.
And food which causes choking and a painful punishment.
On the day the earth and mountains will tremble, and the mountains will be a pile of rubble.
We sent a messenger to you as a witness against you like We sent a messenger to Pharaoh.
But Pharaoh disobeyed the messenger, so We overtook him with a strong grip.
So how, if you reject (the truth), can you guard yourselves against a day which will turn children grey-haired?
The sky will break up then, His promise will be accomplished.
This is a reminder, so let whoever pleases take a way towards his Lord.
Your Lord knows that you stand (in prayer) almost two thirds of the night, or half of it, or a third of it, and a party of those with you also, and Allah measures the night and the day. He knows that you don´t count it, so He turned to you in forgiveness. So read what comes easy of the Qur´an. He knows that some of you will be ill, and others travelling on earth to seek of the favours of Allah, and others who strive in the way of Allah, so read what comes easy of it, and keep up prayer and give Zakat and lend Allah an excellent loan, and whatever good you send ahead for yourselves, you will find it with Allah even better and of greater reward. And ask Allah for forgiveness, for Allah is forgiving and merciful.
