Did you notice?
74:1  O thou enveloped in thy cloak
74:2  Arise and warn
74:3  Thy Lord magnify
74:4  Thy raiment purify
74:5  Pollution shun
74:6  And show not favour, seeking wordly gain
74:7  For the sake of thy Lord, be patient
74:8  For when the trumpet shall sound
74:9  Surely that day will be a day of anguish
74:10  Not of ease, for disbelievers
74:11  Leave Me (to deal) with him whom I created lonely
74:12  And then bestowed upon him ample means
74:13  And sons abiding in his presenc
74:14  And made (life) smooth for him
74:15  Yet he desireth that I should give more
74:16  Nay! For lo! he hath been stubborn to Our revelations
74:17  On him I shall impose a fearful doom
74:18  For lo! he did consider; then he planned
74:19  (Self-)destroyed is he, how he planned
74:20  Again (self-)destroyed is he, how he planned!
74:21  Then looked he
74:22  Then frowned he and showed displeasure
74:23  Then turned he away in prid
74:24  And said: This is naught else than magic from of old
74:25  This is naught else than speech of mortal man
74:26  Him shall I fling unto the burning
74:27  - Ah, what will convey unto thee what that burning is!
74:28  It leaveth naught; it spareth naugh
74:29  It shrivelleth the man
74:30  Above it are nineteen
74:31  We have appointed only angels to be wardens of the Fire, and their number have We made to be a stumbling-block for those who disbelieve; that those to whom the Scripture hath been given may have certainty, and that believers may increase in faith; and that those to whom the Scripture hath been given and believers may not doubt; and that those in whose hearts there is disease, and disbelievers, may say: What meaneth Allah by this similitude? Thus Allah sendeth astray whom He will, and whom He will He guideth. None knoweth the hosts of thy Lord save Him. This is naught else than a Reminder unto mortals
74:32  Nay, by the Moo
74:33  And the night when it withdrawet
74:34  And the dawn when it shineth forth
74:35  Lo! this is one of the greatest (portents
74:36  As a warning unto men
74:37  Unto him of you who will advance or hang back
74:38  Every soul is a pledge for its own deeds
74:39  Save those who will stand on the right hand
74:40  In gardens they will ask one anothe
74:41  Concerning the guilty
74:42  What hath brought you to this burning
74:43  They will answer: We were not of those who praye
74:44  Nor did we feed the wretched
74:45  We used to wade (in vain dispute) with (all) waders
74:46  And we used to deny the Day of Judgment
74:47  Till the Inevitable came unto us
74:48  The mediation of no mediators will avail them then
74:49  Why now turn they away from the Admonishment
74:50  As they were frightened asse
74:51  Fleeing from a lion
74:52  Nay, but everyone of them desireth that he should be given open pages (from Allah)
74:53  Nay, verily. They fear not the Hereafter
74:54  Nay, verily. Lo! this is an Admonishment
74:55  So whosoever will may heed
74:56  And they will not heed unless Allah willeth (it). He is the fount of fear. He is the fount of Mercy
