Did you notice?
67:1  Blessed is He in Whose hand is the Kingdom, and He is Possessor of power over all things
67:2  Who created death and life that He might try you -- which of you is best in deeds. And He is the Mighty, the Forgiving
67:3  Who created the seven heavens alike. Thou seest no incongruity in the creation of the Beneficent. Then look again: Canst thou see any disorder
67:4  Then turn the eye again and again -- thy look will return to thee confused, while it is fatigued
67:5  And certainly We have adorned this lower heaven with lamps and We make them means of conjectures for the devils, and We have prepared for them the chastisement of burning
67:6  And for those who disbelieve in their Lord is the chastisement of hell, and evil is the resort
67:7  When they are cast therein, they will hear a loud moaning of it as it heaves
67:8  Almost bursting for fury. Whenever a group is cast into it, its keepers ask them: Did not a warner come to you
67:9  They say: Yea, indeed a warner came to us, but we denied and said: Allah has revealed nothing; you are only in great error
67:10  And they say: Had we but listened or pondered, we should not have been among the inmates of the burning Fire
67:11  Or who is it that will give you sustenance, if He should withhold His sustenance? Nay, they persist in disdain and aversion
67:12  Thus they will confess their sins; so far (from good) are the inmates of the burning Fire
67:13  Those who fear their Lord in secret, for them is surely forgiveness and a great reward
67:14  And conceal your word or manifest it, truly He is Knower of that which is in the hearts
67:15  Does He not know Who created? And He is the Knower of subtilties, the Aware
67:16  He it is Who made the earth subservient to you, so go about in the spacious sides thereof, and eat of His sustenance. And to Him is the rising (after death)
67:17  Do you feel secure that He Who is in the heaven will not make the earth to swallow you up? Then lo! it will shake
67:18  Or do you feel secure that He Who is in the Heaven will not send on you a violent wind? Then shall you know how (truthful) was My warning
67:19  And certainly those before them denied, then how (terrible) was My disapproval
67:20  Do they not see the birds above them spreading and contracting (their wings)? Naught upholds them save the Beneficent. Surely He is Seer of all things
67:21  Or who is it that will be a host for you to help you against the Beneficent? The disbelievers are in naught but delusion
67:22  Is, then, he who goes prone upon his face better guided or he who walks upright on a straight path
67:23  Say: He it is Who brought you into being and made for you ears and eyes and hearts. Little thanks it is you give
67:24  Say: He it is Who multiplies you in the earth and to Him you will be gathered
67:25  And they say: When will this threat be (executed), if you are truthful
67:26  Say: The knowledge is with Allah only, and I am only a plain warner
67:27  But when they see it nigh, the faces of those who disbelieve will be grieved, and it will be said: This is that which you used to call for
67:28  Say: Have you considered if Allah should destroy me and those with me -- rather He will have mercy on us -- yet who will protect the disbelievers from a painful chastisement
67:29  Say: He is the Beneficent -- we believe in Him and on Him do we rely. So you will come to know who it is that is in clear error
67:30  Say: Have you considered if your water should subside, who is it then that will bring you flowing water
