Did you notice?
44:1  ?a. Mim
44:2  By the clear Book
44:3  truly We sent it down on a blessed night—truly We are ever warning
44:4  Therein every wise command is made distinct
44:5  as a command from Us—truly We are ever sending
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 whatsoever is between them; would that you were certain
44:8  There is no god but He; He gives life and causes death, your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of old
44:9  Nay, but they are playing in doubt
44:10  So keep watch for a day when the sky brings forth manifest smoke
44:11  covering the people. This is a painful punishment
44:12  “Our Lord! Remove from us the punishment; truly we are believers.
44:13  How can there be a reminder for them, when a clear messenger had come to them
44:14  Then they turned away from him and said, “He is taught, possessed.
44:15  We shall indeed remove the punishment a little. Surely you will revert
44:16  On the Day when We strike with a terrible striking, surely We are vengeful
44:17  And indeed We tried the people of Pharaoh before them, and a noble messenger came unto them
44:18  “Deliver God’s servants unto me! Truly I am a trustworthy messenger unto you
44:19  And rise not against God; surely I have come to you with a manifest authority
44:20  Truly I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me
44:21  But if you believe me not, then keep away from me.
44:22  Then he called unto his Lord, “These are a guilty people.
44:23  “Set forth with My servants by night; you will indeed be pursued
44:24  And leave the sea at rest; truly they will be a drowned host.
44:25  How many gardens and springs did they leave behind
44:26  sown fields and a noble dwelling
44:27  and prosperity in which they rejoiced
44:28  Thus it was. And We bequeathed it unto another people
44:29  Neither Heaven nor earth wept for them, nor were they granted respite
44:30  And We delivered the Children of Israel from a humiliating punishment
44:31  from Pharaoh. Truly he was foremost among the prodigal
44:32  We knowingly chose them over the worlds
44:33  And We gave them signs wherein was a manifest trial
44:34  Truly these say
44:35  “There is naught but our first death, and we shall not be resurrected
44:36  Bring us our fathers, if you are truthful.
44:37  Are they better, or the people of Tubba? and those before them? We destroyed them. Truly they were guilty
44:38  And We did not create the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is between them in play
44:39  We did not create them, save in truth. But most of them know not
44:40  Truly the Day of Division is their tryst, all together
44:41  The Day when no friend will avail a friend in any way, nor will they be helped
44:42  save him unto whom God has been merciful. Truly He is the Mighty, the Merciful
44:43  Truly the tree of Zaqqu
44:44  is the food of the sinner
44:45  like molten lead boiling in their bellies
44:46  like the boiling of boiling liquid
44:47  “Seize him and thrust him into the midst of Hellfire
44:48  Then pour the punishment of boiling liquid upon his head.
44:49  “Taste! Surely you are the mighty, the noble
44:50  This is that which you used to doubt.
44:51  Truly the reverent are in a station secure
44:52  amid gardens and springs
44:53  wearing fine silk and rich brocade, facing one another
44:54  Thus it is. And We shall wed them to wide-eyed maidens
44:55  Therein they call for every fruit, secure
44:56  They taste not death therein, save the first death. And He will shield them from the punishment of Hellfire
44:57  a bounty from thy Lord; that is the great triumph
44:58  We have only made this easy upon thy tongue, that haply they may remember
44:59  So be on the watch, for they, too, are on the watch
