Did you notice?

 You can SEARCH IslamAwakened: 

37:1  By those who lined up in rows,
37:2  and those who drive away (evil or clouds) strongly,
37:3  and those reading a reminder,
37:4  that your god is certainly One,
37:5  the Lord of the skies and the earth and whatever between them, and the Lord of the easts.
37:6  Indeed, We beautified the sky of the world with beauty of the stars
37:7  and as a guard against every defiant devil.
37:8  They cannot listen to the high assembly, for they are pelted from every side,
37:9  chased away, and they will have an everlasting punishment,
37:10  except someone who snatches (and overhears) the snatch (the word), then a piercing shooting flame follows him.
37:11  So, ask their opinion: “Are they a harder creation or those whom We created (such as angels and the universe)?” Indeed, We created them from sticky clay.
37:12  Rather, you are surprised while they ridicule.
37:13  And when they are reminded, they do not take notice.
37:14  And when they see a sign they ridicule,
37:15  and they say: “This is only an obvious magic,
37:16  will we be raised after we are dead and turned into dust and bones,
37:17  or our forefathers?”
37:18  Say: “Yes, and you will be humiliated.”
37:19  It is only a single shout, and then they see,
37:20  and they say: “Woe to us, this is the Judgment Day.”
37:21  This is the day of separation/decision, the one that you used to deny.
37:22  Gather those who did wrong and their kinds and what they used to serve
37:23  besides God, and lead them to the path of hellfire.
37:24  And stop them (on the way), indeed they are questioned (and are responsible).
37:25  What is with you that you do not help each other?
37:26  No, but today they are surrendered.
37:27  And they turn to each other asking one another,
37:28  they say: “Indeed, you were coming to us from the right (to seduce us).”
37:29  They (the others) say: “No, but you were not believers,
37:30  and there was no authority for us over you, but you were rebellious people,
37:31  so, the word of our Lord is justified against us, indeed we will taste (the punishment).
37:32  So, we misled you, as we were indeed misled.”
37:33  And indeed, on that day they are partners in the punishment.
37:34  Indeed, that is what We do to the guilty ones.
37:35  Indeed, when it was said to them there is no god except God, they were arrogant (and did not accept).
37:36  And they would say: “Should we give up our gods for a mad poet?”
37:37  No, but he brought the truth and confirmed the messengers (before him).
37:38  Indeed, you will taste the painful punishment.
37:39  And you are only punished for what you used to do.
37:40  Except for God's devoted servants.
37:41  They have a known provision,
37:42  (all kinds of) fruits, and they are honored
37:43  in the gardens of delight,
37:44  on sofas facing each other.
37:45  A cup of spring water is circulated among them,
37:46  white and delicious for the drinkers,
37:47  no sickness in it, and they do not get exhausted (and drunk) from it.
37:48  And with them will be girls with restrained glances and beautiful eyes,
37:49  as if they were protected eggs (or pearls).
37:50  And they turn to each other asking one another.
37:51  A talker among them says: “Indeed, I had a close friend”
37:52  saying: “Are you among those confirming (the Resurrection and the Judgment)?
37:53  Would we indeed be judged when we die and become dust and bones?”
37:54  He says: “Do you know (where he is)?”
37:55  Then he looks and sees him in the middle of hellfire.
37:56  He says: “By God, you almost ruined me,
37:57  and if it was not for my Lord’s favor, I would have certainly been of those who are brought (to hell).
37:58  Are we not to die (again)
37:59  except our first death, and we are not punished?
37:60  Indeed, this is the great victory.”
37:61  For (something) like this, the doers should do (good deeds).
37:62  Is this a better reception or the Zaqqum tree?
37:63  Indeed, We made it a suffering for the wrongdoers.
37:64  It is a tree that comes out from the bottom of hellfire,
37:65  its bud is like devils’ heads.
37:66  And they certainly eat from it and fill their stomachs from it.
37:67  Then indeed they will have a mixture of boiling water (to drink) over it.
37:68  Then their return will be to the hellfire.
37:69  Indeed, they found their fathers misguided,
37:70  and yet they rushed (to follow) in their footsteps.
37:71  And most of the earlier ones have certainly lost (the right path) before them.
37:72  And We have certainly sent warners among them.
37:73  So, see what the end of those who were warned was,
37:74  except God's devoted servants.
37:75  And Noah had certainly called Us, and We are certainly the best of responders.
37:76  And We saved him and his family from the great distress.
37:77  And We made his descendants the survivors.
37:78  And We left for him (a good name) among the later ones.
37:79  Peace (and well-being) upon Noah among humankind.
37:80  That is how We reward the good doers.
37:81  Indeed, he was among Our believing servants.
37:82  So, We drowned the others.
37:83  And indeed among his followers was Abraham.
37:84  When he came to his Lord with a sound heart.
37:85  When he said to his father and his people: “What do you serve?
37:86  Do you want false gods besides God?
37:87  So, what do you think about the Lord of humankind?”
37:88  Then he looked a glance at the stars.
37:89  Then he said: “Indeed I am sick (of your practices).”
37:90  So, they turned back from him going away.
37:91  Then he turned to their gods and said: “Will you not eat?
37:92  What is with you, why do you not speak?”
37:93  Then he turned on them, striking (them) with the right hand.
37:94  So, they (his people) came to him in a hurry.
37:95  He said: “Do you serve what you carve,
37:96  while God created you and what you do (and make)?”
37:97  They said: “Build a structure (a furnace) for him and throw him into the great fire.”
37:98  They wanted to plot against him, but We made them the lower ones (failing in their plot).
37:99  And he said: “Indeed I will go to my Lord, He is going to guide me,
37:100  my Lord, give me (a son) from the righteous.”
37:101  So, We gave him the good news of a patient boy.
37:102  So, when he reached the (age of) working with him, he said: “My son, indeed I saw in the dream that I sacrifice you, so see what you think?” He said: “My father, do what you are ordered, God willing you are going to find me of the patient ones.”
37:103  So, when they both submitted and he (Abraham) put him down on the forehead,
37:104  We called him: “Abraham,
37:105  you have fulfilled the vision.” Indeed, that is how We reward the good doers.
37:106  Indeed, this was the obvious test,
37:107  and We ransomed him with a great sacrifice.
37:108  And We left for him (a good name) among the later ones.
37:109  Peace (and well-being) on Abraham.
37:110  That is how We reward the good doers.
37:111  Indeed, he was among Our believing servants.
37:112  And We gave him good news of Isaac, a prophet from the righteous.
37:113  And We blessed him and Isaac, and from their descendants, (some) are good doers and (some) are obviously wrongdoers to themselves.
37:114  And We have certainly favored upon Moses and Aaron.
37:115  And We saved them both and their people from the great distress.
37:116  And We helped them, so they became the winners.
37:117  And We gave them the clear (and clarifying) book,
37:118  and We guided them to the straight path.
37:119  And We left both of them (a good name) among the later ones.
37:120  Peace (and well-being) on Moses and Aaron.
37:121  Indeed, that is how We reward the good doers.
37:122  Indeed, they were both among Our believing servants.
37:123  And indeed Elias (Elijah) was one of the messengers.
37:124  When he said to his people: “Will you not be cautious (of God)?
37:125  Do you call on Baal and you abandon the best of creators?
37:126  God is your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers.”
37:127  So, they denied him, therefore they will be brought (to the punishment),
37:128  except God's devoted servants.
37:129  And We left for him (a good name) among the later ones.
37:130  Peace (and well-being) on El Yasin (Elias).
37:131  Indeed, that is how We reward the good doers.
37:132  Indeed, he was among Our believing servants.
37:133  And indeed, Lot was one of the messengers.
37:134  When We saved him and his family altogether.
37:135  Except an old woman (his wife who was) among those staying behind.
37:136  Then We destroyed the others.
37:137  And indeed, you pass by them in the morning
37:138  and by the night. Do you not understand?
37:139  And indeed, Jonah was one of the messengers.
37:140  When he ran away to the loaded ship.
37:141  Then he drew lots and he was of those thrown off (the ship).
37:142  So, the whale swallowed him, and he was to blame.
37:143  And if he was not among those who glorify (God),
37:144  he would have remained in its belly until the day of rising.
37:145  So, We threw him on the bare shore while he was sick.
37:146  And We made a plant of squash grow over him.
37:147  And We sent him to a hundred thousand or more (people).
37:148  And they believed, so We let them enjoy for a while.
37:149  So, ask their opinion: “Are daughters for your Lord, and sons for them?
37:150  Or did We create the angels as females, and they were witnesses?”
37:151  No doubt, indeed, as part of their lies they will say:
37:152  “God has fathered (children).” And they are certainly liars.
37:153  Did He choose daughters over sons?
37:154  What is with you? How do you judge?
37:155  Do you not take notice?
37:156  Or do you have a clear reason?
37:157  Then bring your book (document), if you are truthful.
37:158  And they have made a relationship between Him and the Jinn, while the Jinn certainly knew that they shall be brought (to judgment),
37:159  God is flawless about what they describe,
37:160  except God's devoted servants (who are saved from the punishment).
37:161  So indeed, you and what you serve,
37:162  you will not be able to mislead (any of God's devoted servants) against Him,
37:163  except someone who enters (and burns in) the hellfire.
37:164  And (the angels say:) “No one is from us unless he has a known position,
37:165  and we are certainly those lined up in rows,
37:166  and we are certainly those who glorify (God).”
37:167  And they (the disbelievers) certainly used to say:
37:168  “Indeed, if we had a reminder (or a scripture) from the earlier ones with us,
37:169  we would have certainly been of God's devoted servants.”
37:170  And they disbelieved in it (Quran), so they will know.
37:171  And Our word has already gone out to Our servants, the messengers,
37:172  that they are certainly helped,
37:173  and indeed, Our troops are the winners.
37:174  So, turn away from them for a while,
37:175  and look at them, for they will see.
37:176  Do they want Our punishment in a hurry?
37:177  When it comes down to their courtyard, it is a bad morning for those who were warned.
37:178  And turn away from them for a while,
37:179  and look, for they will see.
37:180  Your Lord, the Lord of power (and honor), is flawless about what they describe.
37:181  And peace (and well-being) upon the messengers.
37:182  And all praise belongs to God, the Lord of humankind.
