Did you notice?
64:1  Whatever is in Heaven and whatever is on Earth celebrates God. Control is His and praise is (also) His. He is Capable of everything!
64:2  He is the One Who created you so that while one of you may be a disbeliever another of you is still a believer.
64:3  God is Observant of anything and even improved on your shapes. Towards Him lies the Goal!
64:4  He knows whatever is in Heaven and Earth, and knows anything you conceal as well as anything you disclose; God is Aware of what is on one´s mind.
64:5  Has not news come to you (all) about those who have disbelieved previously? They tasted the effect of their action and [experienced] painful torment.
64:6  That was because their messengers had brought them explanations and yet they said: "Will human beings ever guide us?" So they disbelieved and turned away. God has no need of such [people]; God is Transcendent, Praiseworthy.
64:7  The ones who disbelieve claim they will never be raised up again. SAY: "Indeed, by my Lord, you will be raised again! Then you will be notified about whatever you have been doing. That will be easy for God to do!"
64:8  Believe in God and His messenger, and the Light which We have sent down. God is Informed about anything you do.
64:9  Someday He will gather you (all) in on the Day of Gathering; that will be the day for haggling! He will remit the misdeeds of anyone who believes in God and has acted honorably, and show him into gardens through which rivers flow, to live there forever. That will be the supreme Achievement!
64:10  Those who disbelieve and reject Our signs will become inhabitants of the Fire, to remain there. What an awful goal it is!
64:11  No disaster has ever struck anyone unless it was with God´s consent. Anyone who believes in God, has Him to guide his own heart. God is Aware of everything.
64:12  Obey God and obey the Messenger; for if you should turn away, Our messenger needs only to proclaim things clearly.
64:13  God, there is no deity except Him; so on God [Alone] let believers rely!
64:14  You who believe, some of your spouses and children may be your own enemies, so beware of them! Yet if you pardon, condone and forgive [them], God will (likewise) be Forgiving, Merciful.
64:15  Your wealth and your children are simply a [means on testing [you]. Yet God holds a splendid fee.
64:16  Heed God however you can manage to; hear, obey and spend money on one another. Those who feel secure from their own soul´s grasping, will be successful.
64:17  If you will advance God a handsome loan, He will compound it for you and forgive you. God is Appreciative, Lenient;
64:18  Knowing the Unseen and the Visible, [He is] the Powerful, the Wise!
