Dr. Mustafa Khattab

O you wrapped ˹in your clothes˺!

73:2

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

Stand all night ˹in prayer˺ except a little—

73:3

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

˹pray˺ half the night, or a little less,

73:4

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

or a little more—and recite the Quran ˹properly˺ in a measured way.

73:5

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

˹For˺ We will soon send upon you a weighty revelation.

73:6

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

Indeed, worship in the night is more impactful and suitable for recitation.

73:7

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

For during the day you are over-occupied ˹with worldly duties˺.

73:8

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

˹Always˺ remember the Name of your Lord, and devote yourself to Him wholeheartedly.

73:9

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.

73:10

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

Be patient ˹O Prophet˺ with what they say, and depart from them courteously.
