Did you notice?
44:1  Ha Mim
44:2  By this perspicuous Book
44:3  Truly, WE revealed it in a blessed night. Truly, WE have ever been warning
44:4  Therein are decided all matters of wisdo
44:5  By our own command. Verily, WE have ever been sending Messengers
44:6  As a mercy from thy Lord. Verily, HE 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 would only be inclined to believe
44:8  There is no god but HE. HE gives life and HE causes death. HE is your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers
44:9  Yet they play about in doubt
44:10  So watch thou for the day when the sky will bring forth a visible smoke
44:11  That will envelope the people. This will be a painful torment
44:12  On seeing it the people will cry, `Our Lord, remove from us the torment; truly, we are believers.
44:13  How can they benefit by admonition, when there has already come to them a Messenger explaining things clearly
44:14  And yet they turned away from him and said, `He is tutored, a man possessed !
44:15  WE shall remove the punishment for a little while, but you will certainly revert to mischief
44:16  On the day when WE shall seize you with the great seizure, you will know that WE will, certainly, exact retribution
44:17  And WE tried the people of Pharaoh before them, and there came to them a noble Messenger
44:18  Who said to them, `Deliver to me the servants of ALLAH. Truly, I am to you a Messenger, faithful to my trust
44:19  `And exalt not yourselves in defiance of ALLAH. Surely, I come to you with a clear authority
44:20  `And I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me to death
44:21  `And if you believe me not, then leave me alone.
44:22  Then Moses prayed unto his Lord, `These are, indeed, a sinful people.
44:23  ALLAH said, `Take MY servants away by night; for you will surely be pursued
44:24  `And leave thou the sea behind when it is calm, crossing over the dunes. Surely, they are a host that are doomed to be drowned.
44:25  How many were the gardens and the springs that they left behind
44:26  And the cornfields and the noble places
44:27  And the comforts and luxuries wherein they took delight
44:28  Thus it happened. And WE made another people inherit these things
44:29  And the heaven and the earth wept not for them, nor were they respited
44:30  And WE delivered the Children of Israel from the abasing tormen
44:31  Inflicted by Pharaoh. He was, surely, haughty even among the extravagant
44:32  And WE chose them above the peoples of their time knowingly
44:33  And WE gave them Signs wherein was a clear trial
44:34  These people do say
44:35  `There is only one death for us, and we shall not be raised up again
44:36  `So bring back our fathers, if you speak the truth.
44:37  Are they better or the people of Tubba and those before them? WE destroyed them because they were sinful
44:38  And WE created not the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in sport
44:39  WE created them not but for an eternal purpose, but most of them understand not
44:40  Verily, the Day of Decision is the appointed time for all of them
44:41  The day when a friend shall not avail a friend at all, nor shall they be helped
44:42  Save those to whom ALLAH shows mercy. Surely, HE is the Mighty, the Merciful
44:43  Verily, the tree of Zaqqh
44:44  Will be the food of the sinful
44:45  Like molten copper it will boil in their bellies
44:46  As the boiling of scalding water
44:47  WE shall command the angels: `Seize him and drag him into the midst of the blazing Fire
44:48  `Then pour upon his head the torment of boiling water.
44:49  And shall say to him, `Taste it. Thou didst consider thyself the mighty, the honourable one
44:50  `This, indeed, is what you doubted.
44:51  Verily, the righteous will be in a place of security
44:52  Amid gardens and springs
44:53  Attired in fine silk and heavy brocade, facing one another
44:54  Thus will it be. And WE shall give them as companions fair maidens, having large, black eyes
44:55  They will call therein for every kind of fruit, in peace and security
44:56  They will not taste death therein, save the first death; and God will save them from the punishment of the blazing Fire
44:57  As an act of grace from thy Lord. That is the supreme achievement
44:58  And WE have made the Qur'an easy in thy tongue that they may take heed
44:59  So wait thou; they, too, are waiting
