يَا أَيُّهَا الْمُزَّمِّلُ
O THOU enwrapped one! (1)
قُمِ اللَّيْلَ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا
Keep awake [in prayer] at night, all but a small part (2)
نِصْفَهُ أَوِ انْقُصْ مِنْهُ قَلِيلًا
of one-half thereof – or make it a little less than that, (3)
أَوْ زِدْ عَلَيْهِ وَرَتِّلِ الْقُرْآنَ تَرْتِيلًا
or add to it [at will]; and [during that time] recite the Qur'ān calmly and distinctly, with thy mind attuned to its meaning. (4)
إِنَّا سَنُلْقِي عَلَيْكَ قَوْلًا ثَقِيلًا
Behold, We shall bestow upon thee a weighty message (5)
إِنَّ نَاشِئَةَ اللَّيْلِ هِيَ أَشَدُّ وَطْئًا وَأَقْوَمُ قِيلًا
[and,] verily, the hours of night impress the mind most strongly and speak with the clearest voice, (6)
إِنَّ لَكَ فِي النَّهَارِ سَبْحًا طَوِيلًا
whereas by day a long chain of doings is thy portion. (7)
وَاذْكُرِ اسْمَ رَبِّكَ وَتَبَتَّلْ إِلَيْهِ تَبْتِيلًا
But [whether by night or by day,] remember thy Sustainer's name, and devote thyself unto Him with utter devotion. (8)
رَبُّ الْمَشْرِقِ وَالْمَغْرِبِ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ فَاتَّخِذْهُ وَكِيلًا
The Sustainer of the east and the west [is He]: there is no deity save Him: hence, ascribe to Him alone the power to determine thy fate, (9)
وَاصْبِرْ عَلَىٰ مَا يَقُولُونَ وَاهْجُرْهُمْ هَجْرًا جَمِيلًا
and endure with patience whatever people may say [against thee], and avoid them with a comely avoidance. (10)
