Did you notice?
45:1  ?a. Mim
45:2  The revelation of the Book from God, the Mighty, the Wise
45:3  Truly in the heavens and the earth are signs for believers
45:4  And in your creation and in what He has scattered of animals are signs for a people who are certain
45:5  And in the variation of the night and the day, and in that which God sends down from the sky as provision whereby He revives the earth after its death, and in the shifting of the winds are signs for a people who understand
45:6  These are the signs of God that We recite unto thee in truth. So in what discourse after God and His signs do they believe
45:7  Woe unto every sinful liar
45:8  He hears the signs of God recited unto him, then persists arrogantly as if he did not hear it. So give him glad tidings of a painful punishment
45:9  And when he comes to know aught of Our signs, he takes them in mockery. For them there shall be a humiliating punishment
45:10  Beyond them lies Hell. That which they have earned will avail them naught, nor that which they have taken apart from God as protectors; and theirs shall be a great punishment
45:11  This is guidance; and those who disbelieve in the signs of their Lord, theirs shall be a painful punishment of torment
45:12  God it is Who made the sea subservient unto you, that the ships may sail upon it by His Command, that you may seek His Bounty, and that haply you may give thanks
45:13  He made subservient unto you whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth—all together. Truly in that are signs for a people who reflect
45:14  Tell those who believe to forgive those who hope not for the days of God, that He may requite a people for that which they used to earn
45:15  Whosoever works righteousness, it is for his own soul. And whosoever commits evil, it is to the detriment thereof. Then unto your Lord shall you be returned
45:16  And indeed We gave the Children of Israel the Book, judgment, and prophethood, and We provided them with good things, and We favored them above the worlds
45:17  And We gave them clear proofs from the Command. And they differed not till after knowledge had come unto them, out of envy among themselves. Thy Lord will surely judge between them on the Day of Resurrection regarding that wherein they used to differ
45:18  Then We placed thee upon a clear path from the Command; so follow it, and follow not the caprices of those who know not
45:19  Truly they will avail you naught against God. And surely the wrongdoers are the protectors of one another, while God is the Protector of the reverent
45:20  These are insights for mankind, and guidance and mercy for a people who are certain
45:21  Or do those who commit evil deeds suppose that We shall treat them like those who believe and perform righteous deeds equally in their life and in their death? Evil indeed is the judgment they make
45:22  God created the heavens and the earth in truth, and so that every soul may be recompensed for that which it has earned; and they shall not be wronged
45:23  Hast thou considered one who takes his caprice as his god, God having led him astray knowingly, and sealed his hearing and his heart and placed a cover upon his sight? Who, then, will guide him after God? Will you not, then, remember
45:24  They say, “There is naught but our life in this world. We die and we live, and none destroys us save time.” But they have no knowledge thereof. They do naught but conjecture
45:25  And when Our signs are recited unto them as clear proofs, their argument is naught but to say, “Bring us our fathers, if you are truthful.
45:26  Say, “God gives you life; then causes you to die; then He gathers you together on the Day of Resurrection in which there is no doubt. But most of mankind know not.
45:27  Unto God belongs sovereignty over the heavens and the earth. And the Day when the Hour is come—on that Day those who make false claims will have lost
45:28  and thou wilt see every community upon its knees. Every community is called to its book: “Today you will be recompensed for that which you used to do
45:29  This Our Book speaks against you with truth. Truly We were recording all that you used to do.
45:30  As for those who believed and performed righteous deeds, their Lord causes them to enter into His Mercy. That is the manifest triumph
45:31  And as for those who disbelieve, were not My signs recited unto you? But you waxed arrogant and were a guilty people
45:32  When it was said, “Surely God’s Promise is true, and there is no doubt in the Hour,” you said, “We do not know what the Hour is. We do naught but conjecture, and we are not certain.
45:33  The evils of that which they had done will become manifest unto them, and that which they used to mock will beset them
45:34  And it will be said, “Today We forget you just as you forgot the meeting with this your Day; your refuge is the Fire and you have no helpers
45:35  That is because you took the signs of God in mockery and the life of this world has deluded you.” So today they will not be removed from it; nor can they make amends
45:36  Unto God be praise, Lord of the heavens and Lord of the earth, Lord of the worlds
45:37  His is the Grandeur in the heavens and the earth, and He is the Mighty, the Wise
