Did you notice?
32:1  Alif, Lam, Ma«m
32:2  The [gradual] sending down of the Book, there is no doubt in it, is from the Lord of all the worlds
32:3  Do they say, ‘He has fabricated it’? Rather it is the truth from your Lord, that you may warn a people to whom there did not come any warner before you, so that they may be guided [to the right path]
32:4  It is Allah who created the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them in six days, then He settled on the Throne. You do not have besides Him any guardian or intercessor. Will you not then take admonition
32:5  He directs the command from the heaven to the earth; then it ascends toward Him in a day whose span is a thousand years by your reckoning
32:6  That is the Knower of the sensible and the Unseen, the All-mighty, the All-merciful
32:7  who perfected everything that He created, and commenced man’s creation from clay
32:8  Then He made his progeny from an extract of a base fluid
32:9  Then He proportioned him and breathed into him of His Spirit, and made for you the hearing, the sight, and the hearts. Little do you thank
32:10  They say, ‘When we have been lost in the dust, shall we be indeed created anew?’ Rather they disbelieve in the encounter with their Lord
32:11  Say, ‘You will be taken away by the angel of death, who has been charged with you. Then you will be brought back to your Lord.&rsquo
32:12  Were you to see when the guilty hang their heads before their Lord [confessing], ‘Our Lord! We have seen and heard. Send us back so that we may act righteously. Indeed we are [now] convinced.&rsquo
32:13  Had We wished We would have given every soul its guidance, but My word became due [against the defiant]: ‘Surely I will fill hell with all the [guilty] jinn and humans.&rsquo
32:14  So taste [the punishment] for your having forgotten the encounter of this day of yours. We [too] have forgotten you. Taste the everlasting punishment because of what you used to do
32:15  Only those believe in Our signs who, when they are reminded of them, fall down in prostration and celebrate the praise of their Lord, and they are not arrogant
32:16  Their sides vacate their beds to supplicate their Lord in fear and hope, and they spend out of what We have provided them
32:17  No one knows what has been kept hidden for them of comfort as a reward for what they used to do
32:18  Is someone who is faithful like someone who is a transgressor? They are not equal
32:19  As for those who have faith and do righteous deeds, for them are gardens of the Abode —a hospitality for what they used to do
32:20  As for those who have transgressed, their refuge is the Fire. Whenever they seek to leave it, they will be turned back into it, and they will be told: ‘Taste the punishment of the Fire which you used to deny.&rsquo
32:21  We shall surely make them taste the nearer punishment before the greater punishment, so that they may come back
32:22  Who is a greater wrongdoer than him who is reminded of his Lord’s signs, whereat he disregards them? Indeed We shall take vengeance upon the guilty
32:23  Certainly We gave Moses the Book, [declaring], ‘Do not be in doubt about the encounter with Him,’ and We made it a [source of] guidance for the Children of Israel
32:24  And amongst them We appointed imams to guide [the people] by Our command, when they had been patient and had conviction in Our signs
32:25  Indeed your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that about which they used to differ
32:26  Does it not dawn upon them how many generations We have destroyed before them, amid [the ruins of] whose dwellings they walk? There are indeed signs in that. Will they not then listen
32:27  Do they not see that We carry water to the parched earth and with it We bring forth crops of which they eat, themselves and their cattle? Will they not then see
32:28  And they say, ‘When will this judgement be, should you be truthful?&rsquo
32:29  Say, ‘On the day of judgement their [newly found] faith shall not avail the faithless, nor will they be granted any respite.&rsquo
32:30  So turn away from them, and wait. They too are waiting
