Did you notice?
74:1  O thou shrouded in thy mantle
74:2  arise, and warn
74:3  Thy Lord magnif
74:4  thy robes purif
74:5  and defilement flee
74:6  Give not, thinking to gain greate
74:7  and be patient unto thy Lord
74:8  For when the Trump is sounde
74:9  that day will be a harsh day
74:10  for the unbelievers not easy
74:11  Leave Me with him whom I created alone
74:12  and appointed for him ample wealt
74:13  and sons standing before him
74:14  and made all things smooth for him
74:15  then he is eager that I should do more
74:16  Nay! He is forward unto Our signs
74:17  and I shall constrain him to a hard ascent
74:18  Lo! He reflected, and determined -
74:19  death seize him, how he determined
74:20  Again, death seize him, how he determined
74:21  Then he beheld
74:22  then he frowned, and scowled
74:23  then he retreated, and waxed proud
74:24  He said, 'This is naught but a trumped-up sorcery
74:25  'this is nothing but mortal speech.
74:26  I shall surely roast him in Sakar
74:27  and what will teach thee what is Sakar
74:28  It spares not, neither leaves alon
74:29  scorching the flesh
74:30  over it are nineteen
74:31  We have appointed only angels to be masters of the Fire, and their number We have appointed only as a trial for the unbelievers, that those who were given the Book may have certainty, and that those who believe may increase in belief, and that those who were given the Book and those who believe may not be in-doubt, and that those in whose hearts there is sickness, and the unbelievers, may say, 'What did God intend by this as a similitude?' So God leads astray whomsoever He will, and He guides whomsoever He will; and none knows the hosts of thy Lord but He. And it is naught but a Reminder to mortals
74:32  Nay! By the moo
74:33  and the night when it retreat
74:34  and the dawn when it is white
74:35  surely it is one of the greatest thing
74:36  as a warner to mortals
74:37  to whoever of you desires to go forward or lag behind
74:38  Every soul shall be pledged for what it has earned
74:39  save the Companions of the Right
74:40  in Gardens they will questio
74:41  concerning the sinners
74:42  'What thrusted you into Sakar?
74:43  They shall say, 'We were not of those who prayed, an
74:44  we fed not the needy
74:45  and we plunged along with the plungers
74:46  and we cried lies to the Day of Doom
74:47  till the Certain came to us.' -
74:48  Then the intercession of the intercessors shall not profit them
74:49  What ails them, that they turn away from the Reminder
74:50  as if they were startled asse
74:51  fleeing -- before a lion
74:52  Nay, every man of them desires to be -- given -- scrolls unrolled
74:53  No indeed; but they do not fear the Hereafter
74:54  No indeed; surely it is a Reminder
74:55  so whoever wills shall remember it
74:56  And they will not remember, except that God wills; He is worthy to be feared, -- worthy to forgive
