Asalam o Alykum, welcome to 181st part of our Discover the Holy Quran project. In this part we will read Surah Al-Muzzammil. Surah Al-Muzzammil is the 73rd Surah of the Holy Quran and is comprised of 20 verses. Let’s begin:
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1- O thou folded in garments!
2- Stand (to prayer) by night, but not all night,-
3- Half of it,- or a little less,
4- Or a little more; and recite the Quran in slow, measured rhythmic tones.
5- Soon shall We send down to thee a weighty Message.
6- Truly the rising by nights is most potent for governing (the soul), and most suitable for (framing) the Word (of Prayer and Praise).
7- True, there is for thee by day prolonged occupation with ordinary duties:
8- But keep in remembrance the name of thy Lord and devote thyself to Him whole-heartedly.
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 a Food that choke, 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 heavey 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- Thy 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 do doth a party of those with thee. But Allah doth appoint might and day in a 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 Quran 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 Quran 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 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.
“O my Lord! Forgive me, my parents, all who enter my house in Faith, and (all) believing men and believing women: and to the wrong-doers gant Thou no increase but in perdition!” (Ameen)
