Did you notice?
44:1  Ha. Mim
44:2  I swear by the illustrious Book
44:3  that We have revealed the Quran on a blessed night to warn mankind
44:4  On this night, every absolute command coming from Us becomes distinguishable
44:5  The command that We have been sendin
44:6  as a mercy (for the human being) from your Lord. Your Lord is All-hearing and All-knowing
44:7  He is the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, if only you would have strong faith
44:8  There is only One Lord. It is He who gives life and causes things to die. He is your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers
44:9  In fact, the unbelievers have doubts because of excessive involvement in worldly affairs
44:10  Wait for the day (which will come before the Day of Judgment) when the sky will give out dense smok
44:11  which will smother the people. They will say, "This is a painful torment
44:12  Lord, remove this torment from us for we are believers"
44:13  How could this punishment bring them to their senses when a Messenger evidently had come to them
44:14  and they turned away, saying, "He is a trained and insane person"
44:15  We shall remove the torment for a while but you will revert to your old ways
44:16  However, We shall truly take Our revenge on the day when the great seizure takes place
44:17  We had certainly tested the people of the Pharaoh before them to whom a noble Messengers had come, saying
44:18  "Send the servants of God with me. I am a trustworthy Messenger sent to you
44:19  Do not consider yourselves above God? I shall show you a manifest authority (in support of my truthfulness)
44:20  I seek protection from my Lord and your Lord from your decision of stoning me
44:21  If you do not want to believe, leave me alone"
44:22  Moses addressed his Lord, saying, "Lord, these people are sinners"
44:23  We told him, "Leave the city with My servants during the night. You will be pursued
44:24  Cross the sea by cutting a path through it. Pharaoh's army will be drowned
44:25  How many were the gardens, springs
44:26  corn-fields, gracious mansions
44:27  and other bounties which they enjoyed yet left behind
44:28  We gave these as an inheritance to other people
44:29  The sky nor the earth cried for them, nor were they given respite
44:30  We rescued the Israelites from the humiliating tormen
44:31  and from the Pharaoh. He was the chief of the transgressors
44:32  We gave preference to the Israelites over the other people with Our knowledg
44:33  and sent them revelations of which some were a clear trial for them
44:34  These people say
44:35  "After we die, we shall never be raised to life again
44:36  Bring back to life our fathers if what you say is true"
44:37  Are they better than the tribe of Tubba (name of a Yemenite tribal chief) and those who lived before them? We destroyed them. They were criminals
44:38  We have not created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them for Our own amusement
44:39  We have created them for a genuine purpose, but most people do not know
44:40  The appointed time for all of them will be the Day of Judgmen
44:41  (when wrong will be distinguished from right). On this day friends will be of no benefit to one another, nor will they receive any hel
44:42  except for those to whom God grants mercy. He is Majestic and All-merciful
44:43  The tree of Zaqqu
44:44  is food for the sinner
44:45  It will be like molted brass which will boil in the bellie
44:46  like water
44:47  (It will be said of such sinners), "Seize them and drag them into the middle of hell
44:48  Then pour unto their heads the boiling water to torment them"
44:49  They will be told, "Suffer the torment. You had thought yourselves to be majestic and honorable
44:50  This is the torment that you persistently doubted"
44:51  The pious ones will be in a secure plac
44:52  amid gardens and springs
44:53  clothed in fine silk and rich brocade, sitting face to face with one another
44:54  We shall unite them to maidens with big black and white lovely eyes
44:55  They will be offered all kinds of fruits, in peace and security
44:56  They will not experience any death other than that which they have already been through
44:57  God will protect them from the torment of hell as a favor from your Lord. (Muhammad), this is certainly the greatest triumph
44:58  We have made the Quran easy for you to recite so that perhaps they may take heed
44:59  Wait (for God's decree) and they too will be waiting
