073 - Soorah al-Muzzammil - (The One wrapped in Garments) - [Makkee]
In the Name of Allâh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
[073:001] O you wrapped in garments (i.e. Prophet Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam])!
[073:002] Stand (to pray) all night, except a little –
[073:003] Half of it, – or a little less than that,
[073:004] Or a little more. And recite the Qur'ân (aloud) in a slow (pleasant tone and) style.
[073:005] Verily, We shall send down to you a weighty Word (i.e. obligations, laws).
[073:006] Verily, the rising by night (for Tahajjud prayer) is very hard and most potent and good for governing oneself, and most suitable for (understanding) the Word (of Allâh).
[073:007] Verily, there is for you by day prolonged occupation with ordinary duties.
[073:008] And remember the Name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with a complete devotion.
[073:009] (He Alone is) the Lord of the east and the west; Lâ ilâha illâ Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). So take Him Alone as Wakîl (Disposer of your affairs).
[073:010] And be patient (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) with what they say, and keep away from them in a good way.
[073:011] And leave Me Alone to deal with the deniers (those who deny My Verses), those who are in possession of good things of life. And give them respite for a little while.
[073:012] Verily, with Us are fetters (to bind them), and a raging Fire.
[073:013] And a food that chokes, and a painful torment.
[073:014] On the Day when the earth and the mountains will be in violent shake, and the mountains will be a heap of sand poured out.
[073:015] Verily, We have sent to you (O men) a Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) to be a witness over you, as We did send a Messenger [Mûsâ (Moses)] to Fir'aun (Pharaoh).
[073:016] But Fir'aun (Pharaoh) disobeyed the Messenger [Mûsâ (Moses)]; so We seized him with a severe punishment.
[073:017] Then how can you avoid the punishment, if you disbelieve, on a Day (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) that will make the children grey-headed,
[073:018] Whereon the heaven will be cleft asunder? His Promise is certainly to be accomplished.
[073:019] Verily, this is an admonition, therefore whosoever wills, let him take a Path to His Lord!
