بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ يٰأَيُّهَا المُزَّمِّلُ(1)
O thou enwrapped in thy robes,(1)
قُمِ الَّيلَ إِلّا قَليلًا(2)
keep vigil the night, except a little(2)
نِصفَهُ أَوِ انقُص مِنهُ قَليلًا(3)
(a half of it, or diminish a little,(3)
أَو زِد عَلَيهِ وَرَتِّلِ القُرءانَ تَرتيلًا(4)
or add a little), and chant the Koran very distinctly;(4)
إِنّا سَنُلقى عَلَيكَ قَولًا ثَقيلًا(5)
Behold, We shall cast upon thee a weighty word;(5)
إِنَّ ناشِئَةَ الَّيلِ هِىَ أَشَدُّ وَطـًٔا وَأَقوَمُ قيلًا(6)
surely the first part of the night is heavier in tread, more upright in speech,(6)
إِنَّ لَكَ فِى النَّهارِ سَبحًا طَويلًا(7)
surely in the day thou hast long business.(7)
وَاذكُرِ اسمَ رَبِّكَ وَتَبَتَّل إِلَيهِ تَبتيلًا(8)
And remember the Name of thy Lord, and devote thyself unto Him very devoutly.(8)
رَبُّ المَشرِقِ وَالمَغرِبِ لا إِلٰهَ إِلّا هُوَ فَاتَّخِذهُ وَكيلًا(9)
Lord of the East and the West; there is no god but He; so take Him for a Guardian.(9)
وَاصبِر عَلىٰ ما يَقولونَ وَاهجُرهُم هَجرًا جَميلًا(10)
And bear thou patiently what they say, and forsake them graciously.(10)
وَذَرنى وَالمُكَذِّبينَ أُولِى النَّعمَةِ وَمَهِّلهُم قَليلًا(11)
Leave Me to those who cry lies, those prosperous ones, and respite them a little,(11)
إِنَّ لَدَينا أَنكالًا وَجَحيمًا(12)
for with Us there are fetters, and a furnace,(12)
وَطَعامًا ذا غُصَّةٍ وَعَذابًا أَليمًا(13)
and food that chokes, and a painful chastisement,(13)
يَومَ تَرجُفُ الأَرضُ وَالجِبالُ وَكانَتِ الجِبالُ كَثيبًا مَهيلًا(14)
upon the day when the earth and the mountains shall quake and the mountains become a slipping heap of sand.(14)
إِنّا أَرسَلنا إِلَيكُم رَسولًا شٰهِدًا عَلَيكُم كَما أَرسَلنا إِلىٰ فِرعَونَ رَسولًا(15)
Surely We have sent unto you a Messenger as a witness over you, even as We sent to Pharaoh a Messenger,(15)
فَعَصىٰ فِرعَونُ الرَّسولَ فَأَخَذنٰهُ أَخذًا وَبيلًا(16)
but Pharaoh rebelled against the Messenger, so We seized him remorselessly.(16)
فَكَيفَ تَتَّقونَ إِن كَفَرتُم يَومًا يَجعَلُ الوِلدٰنَ شيبًا(17)
If therefore you disbelieve, how will you guard yourselves against a day that shall make the children grey-headed?(17)
السَّماءُ مُنفَطِرٌ بِهِ ۚ كانَ وَعدُهُ مَفعولًا(18)
Whereby heaven shall be split, and its promise shall be performed.(18)
إِنَّ هٰذِهِ تَذكِرَةٌ ۖ فَمَن شاءَ اتَّخَذَ إِلىٰ رَبِّهِ سَبيلًا(19)
Surely this is a Reminder; so let him who will take unto his Lord a way.(19)
۞ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ يَعلَمُ أَنَّكَ تَقومُ أَدنىٰ مِن ثُلُثَىِ الَّيلِ وَنِصفَهُ وَثُلُثَهُ وَطائِفَةٌ مِنَ الَّذينَ مَعَكَ ۚ وَاللَّهُ يُقَدِّرُ الَّيلَ وَالنَّهارَ ۚ عَلِمَ أَن لَن تُحصوهُ فَتابَ عَلَيكُم ۖ فَاقرَءوا ما تَيَسَّرَ مِنَ القُرءانِ ۚ عَلِمَ أَن سَيَكونُ مِنكُم مَرضىٰ ۙ وَءاخَرونَ يَضرِبونَ فِى الأَرضِ يَبتَغونَ مِن فَضلِ اللَّهِ ۙ وَءاخَرونَ يُقٰتِلونَ فى سَبيلِ اللَّهِ ۖ فَاقرَءوا ما تَيَسَّرَ مِنهُ ۚ وَأَقيمُوا الصَّلوٰةَ وَءاتُوا الزَّكوٰةَ وَأَقرِضُوا اللَّهَ قَرضًا حَسَنًا ۚ وَما تُقَدِّموا لِأَنفُسِكُم مِن خَيرٍ تَجِدوهُ عِندَ اللَّهِ هُوَ خَيرًا وَأَعظَمَ أَجرًا ۚ وَاستَغفِرُوا اللَّهَ ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفورٌ رَحيمٌ(20)
Thy Lord knows that thou keepest vigil nearly two-thirds of the night, or a half of it, or a third of it, and a party of those with thee; and God determines the night and the day. He knows that you will not number it, and He has turned towards you. Therefore recite of the Koran so much as is feasible. He knows that some of you are sick, and others journeying in the land, seeking the bounty of God, and others fighting in the way of God. So recite of it so much as is feasible. And perform the prayer, and pay the alms, and lend to God a good loan. Whatever good you shall forward to your souls' account, you shall find it with God as better, and mightier a wage. And ask God's forgiveness; God is All-forgiving, All-compassionate.(20)
