Did you notice?
44:1  Ḥa, Ma«m
44:2  By the Manifest Book
44:3  Indeed We sent it down on a blessed night, and indeed We have been warning [mankind]
44:4  Every definitive matter is resolved in it
44:5  as an ordinance from Us. Indeed We have been sending [apostles]
44:6  as a mercy from your Lord —indeed He is the All-hearing, the All-knowing&mdash
44:7  the Lord of the heavens and the earth, and whatever is between them, should you have conviction
44:8  There is no god except Him: He gives life and brings death, your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers
44:9  Rather they play around in doubt
44:10  So watch out for the day when the sky brings on a manifest smoke
44:11  enveloping the people. [They will cry out:] ‘This is a painful punishment
44:12  Our Lord! Remove from us this punishment. Indeed we have believed!&rsquo
44:13  What will the admonition avail them, when a manifest apostle had already come to them
44:14  but they turned away from him, and said, ‘A tutored madman?&rsquo
44:15  Indeed We will withdraw the punishment a little; but you will indeed revert [to your earlier ways]
44:16  The day We shall strike with the most terrible striking, We will indeed take vengeance [on them]
44:17  Certainly We tried the people of Pharaoh before them, when a noble apostle came to them
44:18  [saying,] ‘Give over the servants of Allah to me; indeed I am a trusted apostle [sent] to you
44:19  Do not defy Allah. Indeed I bring you a manifest authority
44:20  I seek the protection of my Lord and your Lord, lest you should stone me
44:21  And if you do not believe me, keep out of my way.&rsquo
44:22  Then he invoked his Lord, [saying,] ‘These are indeed a guilty lot.&rsquo
44:23  [Allah told him,] ‘Set out with My servants by night; for you will indeed be pursued
44:24  And leave the sea calmly; they will indeed be a drowned host.&rsquo
44:25  How many gardens and springs did they leave behind
44:26  Fields and splendid places
44:27  and the bounties wherein they rejoiced
44:28  So it was; and We bequeathed them to another people
44:29  So neither the sky wept for them, nor the earth; nor were they granted any respite
44:30  Certainly We delivered the Children of Israel from a humiliating torment
44:31  from Pharaoh. Indeed he was a tyrant among the profligates
44:32  Certainly We chose them knowingly above all the nations
44:33  And We gave them some signs in which there was a manifest test
44:34  Indeed these ones say
44:35  ‘It will be just our first death, and we shall not be resurrected
44:36  Bring our fathers back [to life], should you be truthful.&rsquo
44:37  Are they better, or the people of Tubba‘, and those who were before them? We destroyed them; indeed they were guilty
44:38  We did not create the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them for play
44:39  We did not create them except with reason; but most of them do not know
44:40  Indeed the Day of Judgement is the tryst for them all
44:41  the day when a friend will not avail a friend in any way, nor will they be helped
44:42  except for him on whom Allah has mercy. Indeed He is the All-mighty, the All-merciful
44:43  Indeed the tree of Zaqqu
44:44  will be the food of the sinful
44:45  Like molten copper it will boil in the bellies
44:46  boiling like boiling water
44:47  ‘Seize him and drag him to the middle of hell
44:48  then pour over his head the punishment of boiling water.&rsquo
44:49  ‘Taste! Indeed you are the [self-styled] mighty and noble
44:50  This is indeed what you used to doubt!&rsquo
44:51  Indeed the Godwary will be in a secure place
44:52  amid gardens and springs
44:53  dressed in fine silk and brocade, sitting face to face
44:54  So shall it be, and We shall wed them to black-eyed houris
44:55  There they will call for every fruit, in safety
44:56  There they will not taste death except the first death, and He will save them from the punishment of hel
44:57  —a grace from your Lord. That is the great success
44:58  Indeed We have made it simple in your language, so that they may take admonition
44:59  So wait! Indeed they [too] are waiting
