Free Quran Chapter 73: Cloaked (Al-Muzzammil)

Learn from GOD that believers don’t brag or flash their faith around, they are too busy working hard. It is important that you are honest. Look at verses 2 to 7, it is telling you in an honest and logical way that you should meditate because you will have time for other things during the day. During the night you want to rest anyways, so meditation makes perfect sense. Yet people make up excuses. Just assign 20 minutes to 1 hour every night to read the Quran and meditate on its content. You can do it while laying down in bed even, find whatever solution you can to help you fulfill this commandment. That’s right, reading the Quran is a commandment.

Pay close attention to how the “cloaked one” is described as. It is talking about the characteristics of a believer. If you read his chapter and you feel that GOD is talking about you, then that’s great! Keep at it. If you don’t feel that GOD is talking about you, well, that’s great as well, because now you have a goal to achieve!

Quran Chapter 73: Cloaked (Al-Muzzammil)

[73:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

[73:1] O you cloaked one.

[73:2] Meditate during the night, except rarely.

[73:3] Half of it, or a little less.

[73:4] Or a little more. And read the Quran from cover to cover.

[73:5] We will give you a heavy message.

[73:6] The meditation at night is more effective, and more righteous.

[73:7] You have a lot of time during the day for other matters.

[73:8] You shall commemorate the name of your Lord, to come ever closer and closer to Him.

[73:9] Lord of the east and the west; there is no other god besides Him. You should choose Him as your advocate.

[73:10] And remain steadfast in the face of their utterances, and disregard them in a nice manner.

[73:11] And let Me deal with the rejectors, who have been generously blessed; just give them a little time.

[73:12] We have severe punishments, and Hell.

[73:13] Food that can hardly be swallowed, and painful retribution.

[73:14] The day will come when the earth and the mountains will quake, and the mountains will turn into a weightless pile.

[73:15] We have sent to you a messenger, just as we sent to Pharaoh a messenger.

[73:16] Pharaoh disobeyed the messenger and, consequently, we punished him severely.

[73:17] If you disbelieve, how can you evade a day so terrible that it makes the infants gray-haired?

[73:18] The heaven will shatter therefrom. His promise is true.

[73:19] This is a reminder; whoever wills, let him choose the path to his Lord.

[73:20] Your Lord knows that you meditate during two-thirds of the night, or half of it, or one-third of it, and so do some of those who believed with you. God has designed the night and the day, and He knows that you cannot always do this. He has pardoned you. Instead, you shall read what you can of the Quran. He knows that some of you may be ill, others may be traveling in pursuit of God’s provisions, and others may be striving in the cause of God. You shall read what you can of it, and observe the contact prayers (Salat), give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and lend God a loan of righteousness. Whatever good you send ahead on behalf of your souls, you will find it at God far better and generously rewarded. And implore God for forgiveness. God is Forgiver, Most Merciful.
