Did you notice?
44:1  Ha-Mim.
44:2  By the clear book (the Qur’an).
44:3  Surely We sent it (this Qur’an) down in a blessed night (of Qadr in the month of Ramadan). Surely, We are ever warning (mankind).
44:4  in it (that night) every matter is decided wisely,
44:5  by a command from Us. Surely, We have ever sending (the Messengers),
44:6  (as) Mercy from your Lord. Surely! He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.
44:7  The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, if you have faith with certainty.
44:8  There is no true one worthy of worship but He. It is He Who gives life and causes death, your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers.
44:9  Nay! They play in doubt.
44:10  Then you wait for the Day when the sky will bring forth a visible smoke,
44:11  covering the people, this will be a painful punishment.
44:12  (People will say): “Our Lord! Remove the punishment from us, really we have become believers!”
44:13  How can there be an admonition (at the time when the punishment has reached) for them when a Messenger explaining things clearly has already come to them
44:14  Yet, they turn away from him (Muhammad) and said: “He (Muhammad) is a madman, taught (by others)!”
44:15  Surely, We shall remove the punishment (famine) for a while. But you will return (to disbelief).
44:16  On the Day We shall seize you with the greatest grasp. Surely, We will take retribution.
44:17  And indeed We tried Pharaoh’s people before them, when a noble Messenger (Moses) came to them,
44:18  saying: “Deliver the servants of Allah (the children of Israel) to me. Surely! I am a Messenger to you worthy of all trust.
44:19  And don’t exalt (yourselves) against Allah. Truly, I have come to you with a clear authority.
44:20  And truly, I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me.
44:21  But if you don’t believe me, then keep away from me and leave me alone.”
44:22  So he (Moses) called upon (when they were aggressive) his Lord (saying) indeed: “These are criminal people.”
44:23  (Allah said): “You depart with My servants by night. Surely, you will be pursued.
44:24  And (when you have crossed the sea with your people), then leave the sea as it is (quiet and divided). Surely, they are a host to be drowned.”
44:25  How many gardens and springs did they (Pharaoh’s people) leave behind,
44:26  and corn-fields and goodly places,
44:27  and comforts (of life) they used to take delight in it!
44:28  Thus We made other people inherit them (the children of Israel inherit the kingdom of Egypt).
44:29  And neither the heavens and the earth did weep for them, nor were they given a respite.
44:30  And indeed We saved the children of Israel from the humiliating punishment
44:31  from Pharaoh. Surely! He was arrogant and was one of the transgressors,
44:32  and surely, We chose them (the children of Israel) above the worlds (during the time of Moses) with knowledge.
44:33  And granted them signs in which there was a plain trial.
44:34  Surely, these (people of Quraish) say:
44:35  “There is nothing after our first death and we shall not be resurrected.
44:36  Bring back our forefathers if you speak the truth!”
44:37  Are they better than the people of Tubba and those who were before them? We destroyed them because they were indeed criminals.
44:38  And We did not create the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, for merely a play.
44:39  We have not created them but (to reveal) the truth, but most of them don’t know.
44:40  Surely, the Day of judgment is the time appointed for all of them,
44:41  the Day when a near relative cannot avail a relative in anything, nor they can receive help
44:42  except those on whom Allah will show Mercy. Surely, He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
44:43  Surely, the tree of Zaqqum (very bitter taste),
44:44  will be the food of the sinners,
44:45  like boiling oil, it will boil in the bellies,
44:46  like the boiling of scalding water.
44:47  (It will be said): “Seize and drag him into the midst of blazing fire,
44:48  then pour from the punishment of boiling water over its head,
44:49  taste you (this)! Surely, you were (pretending to be) the mighty, the noble!
44:50  Surely! This is what you used to doubt about it!”
44:51  Surely! The pious will be in place of security (Paradise),
44:52  among gardens and springs;
44:53  dressed in fine silk and also in thick silk, facing each other.
44:54  So (it will be), and We shall marry them to Houris (fair females) with wide lovely eyes.
44:55  They will call in it for every kind of fruit in peace and security;
44:56  they will never taste death in it except the first death (of this world), and He will save them from the punishment of the blazing fire
44:57  as a Bounty from your Lord! That will be the supreme success!
44:58  Certainly, We have made this (Qur’an) easy in your tongue in order that they may remember.
44:59  Wait then (O Muhammad); surely, they too are waiting.
