73. Al-Muzzammil
Introduction to this Surat.

In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
1. arabic
O you wrapped in garments (i.e. Prophet Muhammad SAW)!
2. arabic
Stand (to pray) all night, except a little.
3. arabic
Half of it, or a little less than that,
4. arabic
Or a little more; and recite the Qur'ân (aloud) in a slow, (pleasant tone and) style[] .
5. arabic
Verily, We shall send down to you a weighty Word (i.e. obligations, legal laws, etc.).
6. arabic
Verily, the rising by night (for Tahajjud prayer) is very hard and most potent and good for governing (the soul), and most suitable for (understanding) the Word (of Allâh).
7. arabic
Verily, there is for you by day prolonged occupation with ordinary duties,
8. arabic
And remember the Name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with a complete devotion.
9. arabic
(He Alone is) the Lord of the east and the west, Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). So take Him Alone as Wakîl (Disposer of your affairs)[] .
10. arabic
And be patient (O Muhammad SAW) with what they say, and keep away from them in a good way.
11. arabic
And leave Me Alone to deal with the beliers (those who deny My Verses, etc.), and those who are in possession of good things of life. And give them respite for a little while.
12. arabic
Verily, with Us are fetters (to bind them), and a raging Fire.
13. arabic
And a food that chokes, and a painful torment.
14. arabic
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 and flowing down.
15. arabic
Verily, We have sent to you (O men) a Messenger (Muhammad SAW) to be a witness over you, as We did send a Messenger [Mûsa (Moses)] to Fir'aun (Pharaoh)[] .
16. arabic
But Fir'aun (Pharaoh) disobeyed the Messenger [Mûsa (Moses)], so We seized him with a severe punishment.
17. arabic
Then how can you avoid the punishment, if you disbelieve, on a Day that will make the children grey-headed (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)?
18. arabic
Whereon the heaven will be cleft asunder? His Promise is certainly to be accomplished.
19. arabic
Verily, this is an admonition, therefore whosoever will, let him take a Path to His Lord!
20. arabic
arabic
Verily, your Lord knows that you do stand (to pray at night) a little less than two-thirds of the night, or half the night, or a third of the night, and so do a party of those with you, And Allâh measures the night and the day. He knows that you are unable to pray the whole night, so He has turned to you (in mercy). So, recite you of the Qur'ân as much as may be easy for you. He knows that there will be some among you sick, others travelling through the land, seeking of Allâh's Bounty; yet others fighting in Allâh's Cause. So recite as much of the Qur'ân as may be easy (for you), and perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât) and give Zakât, and lend to Allâh a goodly loan, and whatever good you send before you for yourselves, (i.e. Nawâfil non-obligatory acts of worship: prayers, charity, fasting, Hajj and 'Umrah, etc.), you will certainly find it with Allâh, better and greater in reward. And seek Forgiveness of Allâh. Verily, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most-Merciful[].
