73:1  O you wrapped up in your mantle
73:2  Stand vigil through the night, except a little
73:3  a half, or reduce a little from tha
73:4  or add to it, and recite the Qur’an in a measured tone
73:5  Indeed soon We shall cast on you a weighty word
73:6  Indeed the watch of the night is firmer in tread and more upright in respect to speech
73:7  for indeed during the day you have drawn-out engagements
73:8  So celebrate the Name of your Lord and dedicate yourself to Him with total dedication
73:9  Lord of the east and the west, there is no god except Him, so take Him for your trustee
73:10  and be patient over what they say, and keep away from them in a graceful manner
73:11  Leave Me [to deal] with the deniers, the opulent, and give them a little respite
73:12  Indeed with Us are heavy fetters and a fierce fire
73:13  and a food that chokes [those who gulp it], and a painful punishment [prepared for]
73:14  the day when the earth and the mountains will quake, and the mountains will be like dunes of shifting sand
73:15  Indeed We have sent to you an apostle, to be a witness to you, just as We sent an apostle to Pharaoh
73:16  But Pharaoh disobeyed the apostle; so We seized him with a terrible seizing
73:17  So, if you disbelieve, how will you avoid the day which will make children white-headed
73:18  and wherein the sky will be rent apart? His promise is bound to be fulfilled
73:19  This is indeed a reminder. So let anyone who wishes take the way toward his Lord
73:20  Indeed your Lord knows that you stand vigil nearly two thirds of the night —or [at times] a half or a third of it— along with a group of those who are with you. Allah measures the night and the day. He knows that you cannot calculate it [exactly], and so He was lenient toward you. So recite as much of the Qur’an as is feasible. He knows that some of you will be sick, while others will travel in the land seeking Allah’s grace, and yet others will fight in the way of Allah. So recite as much of it as is feasible, and maintain the prayer and pay the zakat and lend Allah a good loan. Whatever good you send ahead for your souls you will find it with Allah [in a form] that is better and greater with respect to reward. And plead to Allah for forgiveness; indeed Allah is all-forgiving, all-merciful
