Did you notice?
74:1  O you enveloped in your cloak
74:2  Arise and warn
74:3  And magnify your Lord
74:4  And your cloak do purify
74:5  And uncleanness do shun
74:6  And bestow not favours that you may receive again with increase
74:7  And for the sake of your Lord, be patient
74:8  For when the trumpet is sounded
74:9  That, at that time, shall be a Day of distress
74:10  Far from easy for the unbelievers
74:11  Leave Me alone to deal with him whom I created
74:12  And gave vast riches
74:13  And sons to be by his side
74:14  And I adjusted the affairs of life to go smoothly and appropriately for him
74:15  And yet he desires that I should add more
74:16  By no means! For lo! He stubbornly opposes Our revelations
74:17  Will impose on him a fearful doom
74:18  Surely he reflected and then plotted
74:19  But woe to him for how he plotted
74:20  Again, woe to him for how he plotted
74:21  Then he looked around
74:22  Then he frowned and scowled
74:23  Then he turned back and was inflated with pride
74:24  Then he said, "This is naught but enchantment, narrated of olden days
74:25  "This is naught but the word of a mortal."
74:26  Soon will I cast him into the burning (Hell-fire)
74:27  And what will make you understand what the burning (Hell-fire) is
74:28  It leaves naught, it spares naught
74:29  It scorches (darkens the colour) and shrivels the mortal
74:30  Over it are nineteen
74:31  And We have not made the wardens of the fire others than angels, and We have not made their number but as a trial for those who disbelieve, that those who have been given the Book (scriptures) may be certain and those who believe may increase in faith, a
74:32  Nay; I swear by (or call to witness) the moon
74:33  And by the night when it departs
74:34  And by the Dawn when it shines forth
74:35  Surely, this is but one of the mighty Signs
74:36  A warning to mortals
74:37  To him among you who wishes to go forward or remain behind
74:38  Every soul is held in pledge for its own deeds
74:39  Except the people of the right hand
74:40  In Gardens, they shall ask each othe
74:41  And ask the guilty
74:42  "What has brought you into hell?"
74:43  They shall say, "We were not of those who prayed
74:44  "And we used not to feed the poor
74:45  "And we used to enter into vain discourse with those who entered into vain discourses
74:46  "And we used to call the Day of Judgment a lie
74:47  "Till the inevitable event (death) overtook us."
74:48  The intercession of no mediators shall avail them then
74:49  What is then the matter with them that they turn away from the admonition
74:50  As if they were frightened asse
74:51  Fleeing from a lion
74:52  Nay; every one of them desires that he may be given pages spread out (or open)
74:53  Nay! But they do not fear the Hereafter
74:54  Nay! This surely is an admonition
74:55  Let any who will, pay heed (or remember)
74:56  But none will remember (or heed) unless Allah wills. He is the source of fear (or righteousness) and the source of Mercy
