Did you notice?
44:1  'H. M
44:2  By the perspicuous Book
44:3  verily, we have sent it down on a blessed night;- verily, we had given warning
44:4  wherein is decided every wise affair
44:5  as an order from us. Verily, we were sending (apostles)
44:6  a mercy from thy Lord; verily, He both hears and knows
44:7  from the Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between the two, if ye were but sure
44:8  There is no god but He, He quickens and He kills - your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of yore
44:9  Nay, they in doubt do play
44:10  But expect thou the day when the heaven shall bring obvious smok
44:11  to cover men - this is grievous torment
44:12  Our Lord! remove from us the torment; verily, we are believers
44:13  How can they have the reminder (now), when they have had a plain apostle
44:14  and when they turned their backs away from him and said, 'Taught! mad!
44:15  Verily, we will remove the torment a little, (but) ye will surely return
44:16  On the day when we will assault with the great assault, verily, we will take vengeance
44:17  And we already tried the people of Pharaoh when there came to them a noble apostle
44:18  'Send back to me God's servants; verily, I am to you a faithful apostle;
44:19  and, 'Exalt not yourselves above God; verily, I come to you with obvious authority
44:20  And, verily, I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord, that ye stone me not
44:21  And if ye believe not in me then let me alone!
44:22  Then he called upon his Lord, 'Verily, these are a sinful people.
44:23  So journey with my servants by night - verily, ye will be pursued
44:24  But leave the sea in quiet - verily, they are a host to be drowned
44:25  How many gardens and springs have they left
44:26  and corn lands and a noble place
44:27  and comfort wherein they did enjoy themselves
44:28  Thus - and we gave them for an inheritance to another people
44:29  And the heaven wept not for them, nor the earth, nor were they respited
44:30  But we saved the children of Israel from shameful woe!
44:31  - from Pharaoh; verily, he was haughty, one of the extravagant
44:32  And we did choose them, wittingly, above the worlds
44:33  and we gave them signs wherein was an obvious trial
44:34  Verily, these say
44:35  'It is but our first death
44:36  so bring our fathers, if ye do speak the truth!
44:37  Are they better than the people of Tubbah, and those before them? We destroyed them - verily, they were sinners
44:38  Nor did we create the heavens and the earth, and what is between the two in sport
44:39  we did but create them in truth, though most of them know it not
44:40  Verily, the day of separation is their appointed term
44:41  the day when master shall not avail client at all, nor shall they be helped
44:42  save whomsoever God shall have mercy on; verily, He is the mighty, the merciful
44:43  Verily, the Zaqqum tre
44:44  (shall be) the food of the sinful
44:45  as it were melting, shall it boil in their bellie
44:46  like the boiling of hot water!
44:47  'Take him and hale him into the midst of hell
44:48  then pour over his head the torment of hot water!
44:49  Taste! verily, thou art the mighty, the honourable
44:50  Verily, this is that whereon ye did dispute!
44:51  Verily, the pious shall be in a safe place
44:52  in gardens and springs
44:53  they shall be clad in satin and stout silk face to face
44:54  Thus!- and we will wed them to bright and large-eyed maids
44:55  They shall call therein for every fruit in safety
44:56  They shall not taste therein of death save their first death, and we will keep them from the torment of hell
44:57  Grace from thy Lord, that is the grand bliss
44:58  And we have only made it easy for thy tongue, that haply they may be mindful
44:59  Then watch thou; verily, they are watching too
