Did you notice?
77:1  By the [winds] sent forth in swift succession
77:2  violently storming
77:3  scattering far and wide
77:4  separating forcefully
77:5  delivering a reminder
77:6  as a proof or a warning
77:7  what you are promised will come to pass
77:8  When the stars are dimme
77:9  and the sky is torn apart
77:10  when the mountains are turned to dus
77:11  and the messengers given their appointed time–&ndash
77:12  for what Day has all this been set
77:13  The Day of Decision
77:14  What will explain to you what the Day of Decision is
77:15  Woe, on that Day, to those who denied the truth
77:16  Did We not destroy the first [of them]
77:17  We shall make the last follow them
77:18  this is how We deal with the guilty
77:19  Woe, on that Day, to those who denied the truth
77:20  Did We not make you from an underrated flui
77:21  which We housed in a safe lodgin
77:22  for a determined period
77:23  We determine [it]: how excellently We determine
77:24  Woe, on that Day, to those who denied the truth
77:25  Did We not make the earth a hom
77:26  for the living and the dead
77:27  Did We not place firm, lofty mountains on it and provide you with sweet water
77:28  Woe, on that Day, to those who denied the truth
77:29  They will be told, ‘Go to that which you used to deny
77:30  Go to a shadow of smoke!’ It rises in three columns
77:31  no shade does it give, nor relief from the flame
77:32  it shoots out sparks as large as treetrunk
77:33  and as bright as copper
77:34  Woe, on that Day, to those who denied the truth
77:35  On that Day they will be speechless
77:36  and they will be given no chance to offer any excuses
77:37  Woe, on that Day, to those who denied the truth
77:38  [They will be told], ‘This is the Day of Decision: We have gathered you and earlier generations
77:39  If you have any plots against Me, try them now.&rsquo
77:40  Woe, on that Day, to those who denied the truth
77:41  But those who took heed of God will enjoy cool shade, springs
77:42  and any fruit they desire
77:43  [they will be told], ‘Eat and drink to your hearts’ content as a reward for your deeds
77:44  this is how We reward those who do good.&rsquo
77:45  Woe, on that Day, to those who denied the truth
77:46  [You may] eat and enjoy yourselves for a short while, evildoers that you are
77:47  Woe, on that Day, to those who denied the truth
77:48  When they are told, ‘Bow down in prayer,’ they do not do so
77:49  Woe, on that Day, to those who denied the truth
77:50  In what revelation, after this, will they believe
