Did you notice?
44:1  +[ M\m.
44:2  By the clear Book
44:3  truly, We caused it to descend on a blessed night. Truly, We had been ones who warn.
44:4  Every wise command is made clear in it,
44:5  a command from Us. Truly, We had been ones who send it
44:6  as a mercy from thy Lord. Truly, He is The Hearing, The Knowing,
44:7  Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them. If you had been ones who are certain.
44:8  There is no god but He. It is He Who gives life and causes to die. He is your Lord and the Lord of your ancient fathers.
44:9  Nay! They play in uncertainty.
44:10  Then, thou be on the watch for a Day when the heavens will bring a clear smoke
44:11  overcoming humanity. This is a painful punishment.
44:12  Our Lord! Remove thou the punishment from us! Truly, we are ones who believe.
44:13  What will there be as a reminder for them? A clear Messenger drew near them.
44:14  Again, they turned away from him and they said: He is one who is taught by others, one who is possessed.
44:15  Truly, We are ones who remove the punishment for a little. Truly, you are ones who revert to ingratitude.
44:16  On the Day when We will seize by force with the greatest attack, truly, We will be ones who requite.
44:17  And, certainly, We tried a folk of Pharaoh before them when there drew near them a generous Messenger:
44:18  Give back to me the servants of God, the Children of Israel. Truly, I am a trustworthy Messenger to you.
44:19  And rise not up against God. Truly, I am one who arrives with a clear authority.
44:20  Truly, I took refuge in my Lord and your Lord so that you not stone me.
44:21  But if you believe not in me, then, withdraw.
44:22  So he called on his Lord: Truly, these are a folk, ones who sin.
44:23  He said: Set thou forth with my servants by night. Truly, you will be ones who are followed.
44:24  And leave the sea calmly as it is. Truly, they will be an army, one that is drowned.
44:25  How many they left behind of gardens and springs
44:26  and crops and generous stations
44:27  and prosperity in which they had been, ones who are joyful!
44:28  And, thus, We gave it as inheritance to another folk.
44:29  And neither the heavens wept for them nor the earth nor had they been ones who are given respite.
44:30  And, certainly, We delivered the Children of Israel from the despised punishment
44:31  of Pharaoh. Truly, He had been one who exalts himself and was of the ones who are excessive.
44:32  And, certainly, We chose them with knowledge above the worlds
44:33  and gave them the signs in which there was a clear trial.
44:34  Truly, these say:
44:35  There is nothing but our first singled out death and we will not be ones who are revived.
44:36  Then, bring our fathers back if you had been ones who are sincere.
44:37  Are they better or a folk of Tubba and those who were before them? We caused them to perish. They, truly, had been ones who sin.
44:38  And We created not the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them as ones who play!
44:39  We created them not but with The Truth but most of them know not.
44:40  Truly, the Day of Decision is the time appointed for them one and all,
44:41  a Day when a defender will not avail another defender at all nor will they be helped
44:42  but him on whom God had mercy. Truly, He is The Almighty, The Compassionate.
44:43  Truly, the tree of Zaqqum
44:44  will be the food of the sinful.
44:45  Like molten copper it will bubble in the bellies,
44:46  like boiling, scalding water.
44:47  It will be said: Take him and drag him violently into the depths of hellfire.
44:48  Again, then, unloose over his head the punishment of scalding water!
44:49  Experience this! Truly, thou, thou art seemingly the mighty, the generous.
44:50  Truly, this is what you had been contesting.
44:51  Truly, the ones who are Godfearing will be in the station of trustworthiness
44:52  among Gardens and springs
44:53  wearing fine silk and brocade, ones who face one another.
44:54  Thus, it is so. We will give in marriage lovely, most beautiful eyed ones.
44:55  They will call therein for every kind of sweet fruit, ones that are safe.
44:56  They will not experience death with them but the first singled out death. And He will protect them from the punishment of hellfire,
44:57  a grace from thy Lord. That, it is the winning the sublime triumph!
44:58  Truly, We made this easy in thy language so that perhaps they will recollect.
44:59  So be on the watch! Truly, they are ones who watch.
