يَا أَيُّهَا الْمُزَّمِّلُ 1
Dr. Mustafa Khattab O you wrapped ˹in your clothes˺!

قُمِ اللَّيْلَ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا 2
Dr. Mustafa Khattab Stand all night ˹in prayer˺ except a little—

نِصْفَهُ أَوِ انْقُصْ مِنْهُ قَلِيلًا 3
Dr. Mustafa Khattab ˹pray˺ half the night, or a little less,

أَوْ زِدْ عَلَيْهِ وَرَتِّلِ الْقُرْآنَ تَرْتِيلًا 4
Dr. Mustafa Khattab or a little more—and recite the Quran ˹properly˺ in a measured way.

إِنَّا سَنُلْقِي عَلَيْكَ قَوْلًا ثَقِيلًا 5
Dr. Mustafa Khattab ˹For˺ We will soon send upon you a weighty revelation.

إِنَّ نَاشِئَةَ اللَّيْلِ هِيَ أَشَدُّ وَطْئًا وَأَقْوَمُ قِيلًا 6
Dr. Mustafa Khattab Indeed, worship in the night is more impactful and suitable for recitation.

إِنَّ لَكَ فِي النَّهَارِ سَبْحًا طَوِيلًا 7
Dr. Mustafa Khattab For during the day you are over-occupied ˹with worldly duties˺.

وَاذْكُرِ اسْمَ رَبِّكَ ﭿ وَتَبَتَّلْ إِلَيْهِ تَبْتِيلًا 8
Dr. Mustafa Khattab ˹Always˺ remember the Name of your Lord, and devote yourself to Him wholeheartedly.

رَبُّ الْمَشْرِقِ وَالْمَغْرِبِ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ فَاتَّخِذْهُ وَكِيلًا 9
Dr. Mustafa Khattab ˹He is the˺ Lord of the east and the west. There is no god ˹worthy of worship˺ except Him, so take Him ˹alone˺ as a Trustee of Affairs.

وَاصْبِرْ عَلَىٰ مَا يَقُولُونَ وَاهْجُرْهُمْ هَجْرًا جَمِيلًا 10
Dr. Mustafa Khattab Be patient ˹O Prophet˺ with what they say, and depart from them courteously.

وَذَرْنِي وَالْمُكَذِّبِينَ أُولِي النَّعْمَةِ وَمَهِّلْهُمْ قَلِيلًا 11
Dr. Mustafa Khattab And leave to Me the deniers—the people of luxury—and bear with them for a little while.
