Did you notice?
74:1  O thou who wrappest thyself up
74:2  Arise and warn
74:3  And thy Lord do magnify
74:4  And thy garments do purify
74:5  And uncleanness do shun
74:6  And do no favour seeking gain
74:7  And for the sake of thy Lord, be patient
74:8  For when the trumpet is sounded
74:9  That will be -- that day -- difficult day
74:10  For the disbelievers, anything but easy
74:11  Leave Me alone with him whom I created
74:12  And gave him vast riches
74:13  And sons dwelling in his presence
74:14  And made matters easy for him
74:15  And yet he desires that I should give more
74:16  By no means! Surely he is inimical to Our messages
74:17  I will make a distressing punishment overtake him
74:18  Surely he reflected and determined
74:19  But may he be destroyed how he determined
74:20  Again, may he be destroyed how he determined
74:21  Then he looked
74:22  Then frowned and scowled
74:23  Then turned back and was big with pride
74:24  Then said: This is naught but magic from an old
74:25  This is naught but the word of a mortal
74:26  I will cast him into hell
74:27  And what will make thee realize what hell is
74:28  It leaves naught, and spares naught
74:29  It scorches the mortal
74:30  Over it are nineteen
74:31  And We have made none but angels wardens of the Fire, and We have not made their number but as a trial for those who disbelieve, that those who have been given the Book may be certain and those who believe may increase in faith, and those who have been given the Book and the believers may not doubt; and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the disbelievers may say: What does Allah mean by this parable? Thus Allah leaves in error whom He pleases, and guides whom He pleases. And none knows the hosts of thy Lord but He. And this is naught but a Reminder to mortals
74:32  Nay, by the moon
74:33  And the night when it departs
74:34  And the dawn when it shines! -
74:35  Surely it is one of the gravest (misfortunes)
74:36  A warning to mortals
74:37  To him among you who will go forward or will remain behind
74:38  Every soul is held in pledge for what it earns
74:39  Except the people of the right hand
74:40  In Gardens, they ask one another
74:41  About the guilty
74:42  What has brought you into hell
74:43  They will say: We were not of those who prayed
74:44  Nor did we feed the poor
74:45  And we indulged in vain talk with vain talkers
74:46  And we called the day of Judgment a lie
74:47  Till the inevitable overtook us
74:48  So the intercession of intercessors will not avail them
74:49  What is then the matter with them, that they turn away from the Reminder
74:50  As if they were frightened asses
74:51  Fleeing from a lion
74:52  Nay, every one of them desires that he should be given pages spread out -
74:53  By no means! But they fear not the hereafter
74:54  Nay, it is surely a Reminder
74:55  So whoever pleases may mind it
74:56  And they will not mind unless Allah please. He is Worthy that duty should be kept to Him and Worthy to forgive
