Did you notice?
44:1  Ha-Meem. (Alphabets of the Arabic language - Allah, and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.
44:2  By oath of this clear Book
44:3  We have indeed sent it down in a blessed night - indeed it is We Who warn
44:4  During it are distributed all the works of wisdom
44:5  By a command from Us - indeed it is We Who send
44:6  A mercy from your Lord; indeed He only is the All Hearing, the All Knowing
44:7  The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them; if you people believe
44:8  There is no worship except for Him - He gives life and causes death; your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers
44:9  Rather they are in doubt, playing
44:10  So you await the day when the sky will bring forth a visible smoke.
44:11  Which will envelop the people; this is a painful punishment
44:12  Thereupon they will say, “O our Lord! Remove the punishment from us - we now accept faith.&rdquo
44:13  How is it possible for them to accept guidance, whereas a Noble Messenger who speaks clearly has already come to them
44:14  Whereas they had then turned away from him and said, “He is a madman, tutored!”
44:15  We now remove the punishment for some days - so you will again commit the same
44:16  The day when We will seize with the greatest seizure - We will indeed take revenge
44:17  And before them We indeed tried the people of Firaun, and an Honourable Noble Messenger came to them
44:18  Who said, “Give the bondmen of Allah into my custody; I am indeed a trustworthy Noble Messenger for you.&rdquo
44:19  And saying, “And do not rebel against Allah; I have brought a clear proof to you.&rdquo
44:20  “And I take the refuge of my Lord and yours, against your stoning me.&rdquo
44:21  “And if you do not believe in me, then have no relation with me.&rdquo
44:22  He therefore prayed to his Lord, “These are a guilty nation!&rdquo
44:23  We commanded him, “Journey with My bondmen in a part of the night - you will be pursued.&rdquo
44:24  “And leave the sea as it is, parted in several places; indeed that army will be drowned.&rdquo
44:25  How many gardens and water-springs they left behind
44:26  And fields and grand palaces
44:27  And favours amongst which they were rejoicing
44:28  That is what We did; and We made another nation their heirs
44:29  So the heavens and the earth did not weep for them, and they were not given respite
44:30  And indeed We rescued the Descendants of Israel from a disgraceful torture
44:31  From Firaun; he was indeed proud, among the transgressors
44:32  And We knowingly chose them, among all others of their time
44:33  And We gave them signs in which lay clear favours
44:34  Indeed these disbelievers proclaim;
44:35  “There is nothing except our dying just once, and we will not be raised.&rdquo
44:36  “Therefore bring back our forefathers, if you are truthful!&rdquo
44:37  Are they better, or the people of Tubba? And those who were before them? We destroyed them; they were indeed criminals
44:38  And We did not create the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, just for play
44:39  We did not create them except with the truth, but most of them do not know
44:40  Indeed the Day of Decision is the appointment for all of them
44:41  The day on which, no friends will benefit each other at all, nor will they be helped. (Except those who are pious
44:42  Except those upon whom Allah has mercy; indeed He only is the Most Honourable, the Most Merciful
44:43  Indeed the tree of Zaqqum,
44:44  Is the food of the sinners
44:45  Like molten copper; it churns in their bellies
44:46  Like the churning of boiling water
44:47  “Seize him, and forcibly drag him right to the blazing fire.&rdquo
44:48  “Then pour on his head the punishment of boiling water.&rdquo
44:49  Saying “Taste it! Indeed you only are the most honourable, the dignified!&rdquo
44:50  “Indeed this is what you used to doubt about.&rdquo
44:51  Indeed the pious are in a place of peace
44:52  In Gardens and water-springs
44:53  They will be dressed in fine silk and embroidery, facing one another (on thrones)
44:54  So it is; and We have wedded them to maidens with gorgeous eyes
44:55  In it they will ask for all kinds of fruit, with safety
44:56  They will not taste death again in it, except their former death; and Allah has saved them from the punishment of fire
44:57  By the munificence of your Lord; this is the great success
44:58  And We have made this Qur’an easy in your language, for them to understand
44:59  Therefore wait (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him) - they too are waiting
