THESE 20 VERSES arranged in two sections all date from Mecca, except for vv. 10, 11 and 20, which are from Madina; the short crisp Meccan verses are thus followed by a longer passage from Madina. The chapter was revealed after The Pen 68, and it refers to the Prophet's worries as he initially accepts his mission and searches for Truth. It gives us an excellent picture of his concern at this period as well as his care in attempting to fulfil his prophetic mission. In the name of God, the Mercy-giving, the Merciful!

God measures out both night and daylight; He knows that you (all) will never count them up, so He has relented towards you.
Charity and Taxes Read whatever seems feasible from the Quran. He knows that some of you may be ill while others are out travelling around the earth seeking God's bounty, and still others are fighting for God's sake. So read any of it that seems feasible, and keep up prayer and pay the welfare tax, and advance God a handsome loan. Anything good you send on ahead for yourselves, you will find [later on] with God; it is better and more important as earnings. Seek forgiveness from God; God will be Forgiving, Merciful.
