Did you notice?
64:1  What is in the heavens and what is in the earth celebrates God's praises; His is the kingdom, and His is the praise, and He is mighty over all
64:2  He it is who created you, and of you is (one) a misbeliever and (one) a believer; and God on what ye do does look
64:3  He created the heavens and the earth in truth; and has formed you and made excellent your forms; and unto Him the journey is
64:4  He knows what is in the heavens and the earth, and knows what ye conceal and what ye display; for God knows the nature of men's breasts
64:5  Has there not come to you the story of those who misbelieved before, and tasted the evil result of their affair, and for them was grievous woe
64:6  That is because their apostles came to them with manifest signs, and they said, 'Shall mortals guide us?' and they misbelieved and turned their backs. But God was independent of them; for God is rich and to be praised
64:7  Those who misbelieve pretend that they shall surely not be raised: say, 'Yea! by my Lord! ye shall surely be raised: then ye shall be informed of that which ye have done;' for that is easy unto God
64:8  So believe in God and His Apostle and the light which we have sent down; for God of what ye do is well aware
64:9  On the day when he shall gather you to the day of gathering, that is the day of cheating! but whoso believes in God and acts aright, He will cover for him his offences, and will bring him into gardens beneath which rivers flow, to dwell therein for aye! that is the mighty bliss
64:10  But those who misbelieve and say our signs are lies, they are the fellows of the Fire, to dwell therein for aye! and evil shall the journey be
64:11  No calamity befalls but by the permission of God: and whoso believes in God, He will guide his heart; for God all things doth know
64:12  So obey God and obey the Apostle: but if ye turn your backs - our Apostle has only his plain message to preach
64:13  God, there is no god but He; and upon Him let the believers rely
64:14  O ye who believe! verily, among your wives and children are foes of yours: so beware of them! But if ye pardon, and overlook it, and forgive,- verily, God is forgiving, compassionate
64:15  Your property and your children are but a trial; and God, with Him is mighty hire
64:16  Then fear God as much as ye can! and hear, and obey, and expend in alms: it is better for yourselves. But whosoever is saved from his own covetousness - these are the prosperous
64:17  If ye lend to God a goodly loan, He will double it for you, and will forgive you; for God is grateful, clement
64:18  He knows the unseen and the visible; the mighty, the wise
