O you who have wrapped up in your garments!
Rise to pray in the night except a little
Half of it, or lessen it a little
Or add to it, and recite the Quran as it ought to be recited.
Surely We will make to light upon you a weighty Word.
Surely the rising by night is the firmest way to tread and the best corrective of speech.
Surely you have in the day time a long occupation.
And remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with (exclusive) devotion.
The Lord of the East and the West-- there is no god but He-- therefore take Him for a protector.
And bear patiently what they say and avoid them with a becoming avoidance.
