Did you notice?
44:1  Ha Mim
44:2  By the manifest Book
44:3  We have sent it down in a blessed night, (because) We had to warn (people)
44:4  In that (night), every wise matter is allocate
44:5  through a command from Us. We were to send the Messenge
44:6  as a mercy from your Lord, __Surely, He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing__
44:7  the Lord of the heavens and the earth and of whatever there is between them, if you are to believe
44:8  There is no god, but He. He gives life and brings death. He is your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers
44:9  But they, being in doubt, are playing around
44:10  So, wait for a day when the sky will come up with a visible smok
44:11  that will envelop people. This is a painful punishment
44:12  (Then they will say,) .O our Lord, remove from us the punishment; we will truly believe
44:13  How will they take lesson, while there has already come to them a messenger making things clear
44:14  Then they turned away from him, and said, .(He is) tutored, crazy
44:15  (Well,) We are going to remove the punishment for a while, (but) you will certainly go back (to your original position)
44:16  (Then,) the day We will seize (you) with the greatest seizure, We will take vengeance
44:17  And We tested the people of Fir‘aun (Pharaoh) prior to them, and a noble messenger came to the
44:18  saying, .Deliver to me the servants of Allah. I am an honest messenger to you,
44:19  and saying, .Do not be haughty against Allah. I bring to you a clear proof
44:20  And I have sought refuge with my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me to death
44:21  And if you do not believe in me, then keep away from me
44:22  Then he prayed to his Lord saying, .These are a guilty people
44:23  (So, Allah answered his prayer saying,) .Now, take away my servants at night. You will certainly be chased
44:24  and leave the sea in the state of stillness; they are an army that is sure to be drowned
44:25  How many gardens and fountains have they left behind
44:26  _ and how many fields and noble sites
44:27  and how many a luxury they used to rejoice in
44:28  This is how it happened. And We made other people inherit all this
44:29  So, neither the sky and earth wept over them, nor were they given a respite
44:30  And We delivered the children of Isra‘il from the humiliating punishment
44:31  from Fir‘aun. Indeed, he was haughty, one of the transgressors
44:32  And We chose them, with knowledge, above all the worlds
44:33  And We gave them the clear signs in which there was a manifest blessing
44:34  These people say
44:35  .There is nothing more than our first death, and we are not going to be resurrected
44:36  So, (O believers,) bring our fathers, if you are true (in your belief in resurrection.)
44:37  Are they better or the people of Tubba‘ and those who were before them? We have destroyed them. They were guilty indeed
44:38  And We did not create the heavens and the earth and what is between them just as players
44:39  We did not create them but with true purpose, but most of them do not know
44:40  The Day of Decision is the appointed time for all of them_
44:41  the day when no close relation will be of any use to any close relation, nor will they be helped
44:42  except the One on whom Allah has mercy. Of course, He is the All-Mighty, the Very-Merciful
44:43  Indeed the tree of zaqqu
44:44  is the food of the sinful
44:45  like dregs of oil. It will boil in the bellie
44:46  like the boiling of hot water
44:47  (It will be said to angels,) .Seize him, and drag him into the midst of the Hell
44:48  Then pour on his head some torment of boiling water
44:49  .Have a taste! You are the ‘man of might‘, the ‘man of honour‘
44:50  This is the thing about which you used to be skeptic
44:51  Indeed the God-fearing will be in a place free from fear
44:52  in gardens and fountains
44:53  They will be dressed in fine silk and thick silk, facing each other
44:54  Thus (it will happen,) and We will marry them with houris having big dark eyes
44:55  They will call therein for every fruit peacefully
44:56  They will not taste death therein beyond the first death (they faced in the world). And He (Allah) will save them from the torment of Hell
44:57  as a favour from your Lord. That is the great achievement
44:58  So, We had made it (the Qur‘an) easy in your tongue, so that they may take lesson
44:59  Now wait. They too are waiting
