۞إِنَّ رَبَّكَ يَعۡلَمُ أَنَّكَ تَقُومُ أَدۡنَىٰ مِن ثُلُثَيِ ٱلَّيۡلِ وَنِصۡفَهُۥ وَثُلُثَهُۥ وَطَآئِفَةٞ مِّنَ ٱلَّذِينَ مَعَكَۚ وَٱللَّهُ يُقَدِّرُ ٱلَّيۡلَ وَٱلنَّهَارَۚ عَلِمَ أَن لَّن تُحۡصُوهُ فَتَابَ عَلَيۡكُمۡۖ فَٱقۡرَءُواْ مَا تَيَسَّرَ مِنَ ٱلۡقُرۡءَانِۚ عَلِمَ أَن سَيَكُونُ مِنكُم مَّرۡضَىٰ وَءَاخَرُونَ يَضۡرِبُونَ فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِ يَبۡتَغُونَ مِن فَضۡلِ ٱللَّهِ وَءَاخَرُونَ يُقَٰتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِۖ فَٱقۡرَءُواْ مَا تَيَسَّرَ مِنۡهُۚ وَأَقِيمُواْ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَءَاتُواْ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ وَأَقۡرِضُواْ ٱللَّهَ قَرۡضًا حَسَنٗاۚ وَمَا تُقَدِّمُواْ لِأَنفُسِكُم مِّنۡ خَيۡرٖ تَجِدُوهُ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ هُوَ خَيۡرٗا وَأَعۡظَمَ أَجۡرٗاۚ وَٱسۡتَغۡفِرُواْ ٱللَّهَۖ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ غَفُورٞ رَّحِيمُۢ


Indeed, your Creator knows that a group of people offer Tahajjud with you in a little less than two thirds of the night, or half the night, or one third of the night. And Allah measures the night and the day. He knows that you will not be able to keep up with it (i.e. to pray at night, at those times, due to physical and spiritual hardships). So Allah has turned to you (in mercy). Hence, recite the Quran as much as you can easily (i.e. offer Tahajjud 2-8 rakat during any part of the night). (It is also because) Allah knows that some of you may be sick, others may be travelling through the land seeking Allah’s Bounty, and still others may be fighting in Allah’s Cause. Hence, recite as much of the Quran as you can recite easily, and perform Salat, and give Zakat (the poor due), and lend Allah a sincere loan (i.e. give additional charity apart from obligatory Zakat). And whatever good deeds you send forth for yourselves, you will find a better and more reward for them with Allah. And seek forgiveness from Allah. Indeed, Allah is Very-Forgiving, Most-Merciful.
