Did you notice?
54:1  The Hour of Doom is drawing near, the moon has split asunder; which is a clear proof that the same thing can happen to the earth
54:2  Yet when they see a sign, the unbelievers turn their backs and say: "This is an ingenious magic."
54:3  They deny this and keep on following their own fancies. Ultimately every matter shall be laid to rest
54:4  There has already come to them the information of former nations containing enough deterrent
54:5  and profound wisdom to serve as a warning, but warnings are of no use to these people
54:6  Therefore, O Prophet, let them be. On the Day when the caller will call them to a terrible event
54:7  They shall come out from their graves, like swarming locusts, with downcast eyes
54:8  rushing towards the caller and the same unbelievers will cry: "This is indeed an awful Day!"
54:9  Long before them, the people of Noah disbelieved. They rejected Our servant, called him a madman and drove him out
54:10  After admonishing the people for 950 years, finally he cried out: "Help me, O Lord, I have been overcome!"
54:11  So We opened the gates of heaven with pouring rai
54:12  and caused the earth to burst with gushing springs, and the waters met to fulfill the decreed end
54:13  We carried him in an Ark built with planks and nails
54:14  which drifted on under Our care: a reward for him (Noah) who was denied by the unbelievers
54:15  We have left that Ark as a sign, so is there any who would take admonition
54:16  How terrible was My scourge and how clear My warning
54:17  We have indeed made the Qur’an very easy to understand the admonition: but is there any who would take admonition
54:18  Likewise the people of 'Ad did not believe then how terrible was My scourge and how clear My Warning
54:19  We let loose on them a tornado, on the day of their bitter misfortune
54:20  which snatched them off like trunks of uprooted palm-trees
54:21  How terrible was My scourge and how clear My warning
54:22  We have indeed made the Qur’an very easy to understand the admonition, so is there any who would take admonition
54:23  The people of Thamud disbelieved Our warning
54:24  saying: "Are we to follow a human who stands alone among us? That would surely be an error and madness
54:25  Was he the only person among us to receive this warning? Nay! He is indeed an insolent liar."
54:26  To Our Messenger Saleh, We said: "Tomorrow they shall find out who is an insolent liar
54:27  We are going to send the she-camel as a trial for them. Therefore, watch them and have patience
54:28  Tell them that the water must be shared between them and the she-camel, and each will come to the water at its own turn
54:29  At last the people of Thamud called out to one of their companions, who took the responsibility and hamstrung her
54:30  Then how terrible was My scourge and how clear My warning
54:31  We let loose on them one mighty blast and they became like the trampled twigs used by a fence builder
54:32  We have indeed made the Qur’an very easy to understand the admonition, so is there any who would take admonition
54:33  Another example is the people of Lot who disbelieved Our warning
54:34  We let loose on them a stone-charged tornado which spared none except Lot’s household, whom We saved by early daw
54:35  through Our grace. Thus do We reward those who give thanks
54:36  Lot did warn them of Our scourge but they doubted his warnings
54:37  They even sought to snatch away his guests from him but We blinded their eyes, and said: "Now taste My punishment and the result of disbelieving My warning."
54:38  At daybreak they were overtaken by a lasting punishmen
54:39  as if to say: "Now taste My punishment and the result of disbelieving My warning."
54:40  We have indeed made the Qur’an very easy to understand the admonition, so is there any who would take admonition
54:41  My warnings also came to the people of Pharaoh
54:42  They disbelieved all Our signs. Consequently, We seized them with a seizure of the Mighty, Powerful
54:43  O Qureysh, are your unbelievers better than they were, or have you been granted an immunity in the Sacred Books
54:44  Or, do they say: "Acting together, we can defend ourselves?"
54:45  Soon will their multitude be routed and put to flight
54:46  Nay! The Hour of Judgment is the time promised to deal with them. That hour will be the most grievous and bitter
54:47  Yet, surely the wicked people persist in error and madness
54:48  On that Day when they will be dragged into the fire with their faces downwards, We shall say: "Feel the touch of hell!"
54:49  Surely We have created everything in perfect ordainment (destiny and purpose)
54:50  We command but once and Our will is done in the twinkling of an eye
54:51  O disbelievers, We have already destroyed many like you. Will you not take admonition
54:52  All that they do is being added to their record books
54:53  every action, small and big is being noted down
54:54  Surely the righteous will be in the midst of gardens and rivers
54:55  a place of true honor, in the presence of Almighty Sovereign
