Did you notice?
44:1  Beneficent God
44:2  By the Book that makes it manifest
44:3  We revealed it on a blessed night -- truly We are ever warning
44:4  Therein is made clear every affair full of wisdom -
44:5  A command from Us -- truly We are ever sending messengers -
44:6  A mercy from thy Lord -- truly He is the Hearing, the Knowing
44:7  The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, if you would be sure
44:8  There is no God but He; He gives life and causes death -- your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of yore
44:9  Nay, in doubt they sport
44:10  So wait for the day when the heaven brings a clear drought
44:11  Enveloping men. This is a painful chastisement
44:12  Our Lord, remove from us the chastisement -- surely we are believers
44:13  When will they be reminded? And a Messenger has indeed come, making clear
44:14  Yet they turned away from him and said: One taught (by others); a madman
44:15  We shall remove the chastisement a little, (but) you will surely return (to evil)
44:16  On the day when We seize (them) with the most violent seizing; surely We shall exact retribution
44:17  And certainly We tried before them Pharaoh’s people and a nobel messenger came to them
44:18  Saying: Deliver to me the servants of Allah. Surely I am a faithful messenger to you
44:19  And exalt not yourselves against Allah. Surely I bring to you a clear authority
44:20  And I take refuge with my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me to death
44:21  And if you believe not in me, leave me alone
44:22  Then he called upon his Lord: These are a guilty people
44:23  So go forth with My servants by night; surely you will be pursued
44:24  And leave the sea behind calm. Surely they are a host to be drowned
44:25  How many the gardens and springs they left behind
44:26  And cornfields and noble places
44:27  And goodly things wherein they rejoiced
44:28  Thus (it was). And We made other people inherit them
44:29  So the heaven and the earth wept not for them, nor were they respited
44:30  And We indeed delivered the Children of Israel from the abasing chastisement
44:31  From Pharaoh. Surely he was haughty, prodigal
44:32  And certainly We chose them above the nations, having knowledge
44:33  And We gave them signs wherein was clear blessing
44:34  These do indeed say
44:35  There is naught but our first death and we shall not be raised again
44:36  So bring our fathers (back), of you are truthful
44:37  Are they better or the people of Tubba’, and those before them? We destroyed them, for surely they were guilty
44:38  And We did not create the heavens and the earth and that which is between them in sport
44:39  We created them but with truth, but most of them know not
44:40  Surely the day of Decision is the term for them all
44:41  The day when friend will avail friend in naught, nor will they be helped
44:42  Save those on whom Allah has mercy. Surely He is the Mighty, the Merciful
44:43  Surely the tree of Zaqqu
44:44  Is the food of the sinful
44:45  Like molten brass; it seethes in (their) bellie
44:46  Like boiling water
44:47  Seize him, then drag him into the midst of hell
44:48  Then pour on his head of the torment of boiling water -
44:49  Taste -- thou art forsooth the mighty, the honourable
44:50  Surely this is what you doubted
44:51  Those who keep their duty are indeed in a secure place -
44:52  In gardens and springs
44:53  Wearing fine and thick silk, facing one another -
44:54  Thus (shall it be). And We shall join them to pure, beautiful ones
44:55  They call therein for every fruit in security -
44:56  They taste not therein death, except the first death; and He will save them from the chastisement of hell -
44:57  A grace from thy Lord. This is the great achievement
44:58  So We have made it easy in thy tongue that they may mind
44:59  Wait then; surely they (too) are waiting
