Did you notice?
44:1  Ha. Mim
44:2  By the Scripture that maketh plai
44:3  Lo! We revealed it on a blessed night - Lo! We are ever warning
44:4  Whereon every wise command is made clea
44:5  As a command from Our presence - Lo! We are ever sending
44:6  A mercy from thy Lord. Lo! He, even He is the Hearer, the Knower
44:7  Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, if ye would be sure
44:8  There is no Allah save Him. He quickeneth and giveth death; your Lord and Lord of your forefathers
44:9  Nay, but they play in doubt
44:10  But watch thou (O Muhammad) for the day when the sky will produce visible smok
44:11  That will envelop the people. This will be a painful torment
44:12  (Then they will say): Our Lord relieve us of the torment. Lo! we are believers
44:13  How can there be remembrance for them, when a messenger making plain (the Truth) had already come unto them
44:14  And they had turned away from him and said: One taught (by others), a madman
44:15  Lo! We withdraw the torment a little. Lo! ye return (to disbelief)
44:16  On the day when We shall seize them with the greater seizure, (then) in truth We shall punish
44:17  And verily We tried before them Pharaoh's folk, when there came unto them a noble messenger
44:18  Saying: Give up to me the slaves of Allah. Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you
44:19  And saying: Be not proud against Allah. Lo! I bring you a clear warrant
44:20  And lo! I have sought refuge in my Lord and your Lord lest ye stone me to death
44:21  And if ye put no faith in me, then let me go
44:22  And he cried unto his Lord, (saying): These are guilty folk
44:23  Then (his Lord commanded): Take away My slaves by night. Lo! ye will be followed
44:24  And leave the sea behind at rest, for lo! they are a drowned host
44:25  How many were the gardens and the watersprings that they left behind
44:26  And the cornlands and the goodly site
44:27  And pleasant things wherein they took delight
44:28  Even so (it was), and We made it an inheritance for other folk
44:29  And the heaven and the earth wept not for them, nor were they reprieved
44:30  And We delivered the Children of Israel from the shameful doom
44:31  (We delivered them) from Pharaoh. Lo! he was a tyrant of the wanton ones
44:32  And We chose them, purposely, above (all) creatures
44:33  And We gave them portents wherein was a clear trial
44:34  Lo! these, forsooth, are saying
44:35  There is naught but our first death, and we shall not be raised again
44:36  Bring back our fathers, if ye speak the truth
44:37  Are they better, or the folk of Tubb'a and those before them? We destroyed them, for surely they were guilty
44:38  And We created not the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, in play
44:39  We created them not save with truth; but most of them know not
44:40  Assuredly the Day of Decision is the term for all of them
44:41  A day when friend can in naught avail friend, nor can they be helped
44:42  Save him on whom Allah hath mercy. Lo! He is the Mighty, the Merciful
44:43  Lo! the tree of Zaqqum
44:44  The food of the sinner
44:45  Like molten brass, it seetheth in their bellie
44:46  As the seething of boiling water
44:47  (And it will be said): Take him and drag him to the midst of hell
44:48  Then pour upon his head the torment of boiling water
44:49  (Saying): Taste! Lo! thou wast forsooth the mighty, the noble
44:50  Lo! this is that whereof ye used to doubt
44:51  Lo! those who kept their duty will be in a place secured
44:52  Amid gardens and watersprings
44:53  Attired in silk and silk embroidery, facing one another
44:54  Even so (it will be). And We shall wed them unto fair ones with wide, lovely eyes
44:55  They call therein for every fruit in safety
44:56  They taste not death therein, save the first death. And He hath saved them from the doom of hell
44:57  A bounty from thy Lord. That is the supreme triumph
44:58  And We have made (this Scripture) easy in thy language only that they may heed
44:59  Wait then (O Muhammad). Lo! they (too) are waiting
