#73. Muzammil *SURAH*

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful

1. O thou folded in garments!

2. Stand (to pray) by night but not all night

3. Half of it or a little less

4. Or a little more; and recite the Qur'an in slow measured
rhythmic tones

5. Soon shall We send down to thee a weighty Message

6. Truly the rising by night is most potent for governing (the
soul) and most suitable for (framing) the Word (of Prayer and

7. True there is for thee by day prolonged occupation with
ordinary duties

8. But keep in remembrance the name of the Lord and devote
thyself to Him wholeheartedly

9. (He is) Lord of the East and the West: there is no god but He:
take Him therefore for (thy) Disposer of Affairs

10. And have patience with what they say and leave them with
noble (dignity)

11. And leave Me (alone to deal with) those in possession of the
good things of life who (yet) deny the Truth; and bear with them
for a little while

12. With Us are Fetters (to bind them) and a Fire (to burn them)

13. And Food that chokes and a Penalty Grievous

14. One Day the earth and the mountains will be in violent
commotion and the mountains will be as a heap of sand poured out
and flowing down

15. We have sent to you (O men!) an apostle to be a witness
concerning you even as We sent an apostle to Pharaoh

16. But Pharaoh disobeyed the apostle; so We seized him with a
heavy Punishment

17. Then how shall ye if ye deny (Allah) guard yourselves against
a Day that will make children hoary-headed?

18. Whereon the sky will be cleft asunder? His Promise needs must
be accomplished

19. Verily this is an Admonition: Therefore whoso will let him
take a (straight) path to his Lord!

20. The Lord doth know that thou standest forth (to prayer) nigh
two-thirds of the night or half the night or a third of the night
and so doth a party of those with thee. But Allah doth appoint
Night and Day in due measure. He knoweth that ye are unable to
keep count thereof. So He hath turned to you (in mercy): read ye
therefore of the Qur'an as much as may be easy for you. He
knoweth that there may be (some) among you in ill-health; others
travelling through the land seeking of Allah's bounty; yet others
fighting in Allah's Cause. Read ye therefore as much of the
Qur'an as may be easy (for you); and establish regular Prayer and
give regular Charity; and loan to Allah a Beautiful Loan. And
whatever good ye send forth for your souls Ye shall find it in
Allah's presence yea better and greater in Reward. And seek ye
the Grace of Allah: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful
