a book to read about solat tahajjud as in Quran Surah Muzammil


"The Enwrapped"

(Revealed at Mecca, Verses 20)

In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful

O thou enwarpped in robes!(1)

rise at night but a little,(2)

a half of it, or diminish thereof a little,(3)

or add to it, and chant the Qur'an distinctly.(4)

We shall soon cast upon thee a weighty Word.(5)

Surely rising by night is very heavy in treading the soul and very effective in speech.(6)

Surely Thou hast a lengthy occupation during day.(7)

And remember the Name of thy Lord, and devote thyself to Him devoutly.(8)

Lord of the East and the West, there is no god but He; so take Him for a Care-taker.(9)

And bear patiently what they say, and forsake them with grace.(10)

And leave Me and holders of comforts, those who cry lies, and respite them a little.(11)

Surely with Us are fetters, and a furnace,(12)

and food that chokes, and a painful punishment, __(13)

on the day when the earth and the mountains shall quake, and the mountains shall be a slipping heap of sand.(14)

Surely We have sent to you a Messenger, as a witness over you, as We sent to Pharaoh a Messenger;(15)

but Pharaoh disobeyed the Messenger, so We seized him with a terrible seizing.(16)

Now, if you disbelieve, how will you fear the day that shall make the children grey-headed,(17)

and whereby the heaven shall be split? His promise is sure to be fulfilled.(18)

Surely this is a Reminder; so whoso will, let him take his way to his Lord.(19)

Thy Lord knows that thou risest for nearly two thirds of the night, and a half of it, and a third of it, and so also do a group of those with thee; but God determines the night and the day; He knows that you cannot keep it up; He has therefor turned towards you, therefore read so much of the Qur'an as is easy. He knows that some of you will fall sick, and others will journey in the land seeking God's bounty, and others will fight in the way of God; so, read so much of it as is easy, and establish the Prayer, and pay the Due-alms, and lend to God a goodly loan; and whatever good you advance for yourselves, you shall find it with God as better and mightier a reward; and ask God's forgiveness; surely God is Forgiving, Merciful. (20)
