Did you notice?

78:1  what now are they asking about
78:2  is it the great news of resurrection
78:3  the subject of dispute between those who argue in favour and those who argue against it
78:4  No, but they shall soon come to know
78:5  No, but indeed they shall soon come to know. Then Allah reminds them by drawing their attention to His omnipotence; He says
78:6  Did We not prepare the earth to be a settled habitation
78:7  and the mountains as stays that afford stabilization!
78:8  We created you in pairs
78:9  We made your sleep* a repose for relief and recuperation
78:10  and the night a vestment and black was the colour chosen to absorb all light emanating from the cosmic sources of illumination
78:11  We made the day-time luminous for activity and livelihood
78:12  We built above you seven fortitudinous heavens vast and with endless amplitude.
78:13  We installed a lamp glowing dispensing heat and illumination.
78:14  We sent down from the rainy clouds water affluent and at times involving succession
78:15  To bring forth therewith grains and vegetation
78:16  and thickly foliaged orchards and gardens of delightful variation
78:17  Indeed the Day of Judgment foreordained falls at an absolute time Predestinated
78:18  This is the Day the trumpet is sounded and you come together in throngs embodying your souls and fully actuated
78:19  and the heaven is opened typifying open doors for the adminission of all
78:20  and the mountains are set in motion and into a mirage as if transmigrated
78:21  There and then hell is made to lie in wait
78:22  It is the destined abode of the transgressors wherein they are designated
78:23  Therein, they remain for ages as has been predestinated
78:24  They will taste no coolness for relief nor a drink to quench their thirst
78:25  But only boiling water and their rotten discharges for doing their worst
78:26  A requital commensurate with deeds
78:27  They never believed they would be judged
78:28  and Our revelations and signs they charged with falsehood and insolently did they negate
78:29  But everything We kept on record and in a book did We incorporate
78:30  Now taste the outcome of your deeds and plenty of the same will We increase and perpetuate
78:31  But for the righteous there is victory in the attainment of their goal
78:32  Orchards and vineyards
78:33  Companions of like age featuring highest quality of attractive femininity
78:34  and a cup full of delightful drink, clear, pure and really good
78:35  No vanities shall they hear therein nor is it the place for falsehood, or discord
78:36  A recompense from Allah, your Creator and a reward greatly in accord
78:37  Creator of the heavens and the earth and all in between. AL- Rahman, with whom no one can hold discourse nor shall an argument be allowed to intervene
78:38  This is the day when the spirit Jibril (Gabriel) and the angels stand in lines and keep silence at its height, except he whom AL-Rahman permits and then he says what is right
78:39  Indeed this is the day of truth, and who so desires may still turn to Allah, his Creator, for tutelary protection
78:40  We have warned you of punishment evident and quite near that deserves attention. On the day it comes to pass shall every one look at his deeds, the lawful and the lawless which his wrongful and unclean hands had committed. The infidel shall wish, then, he had remained mere dust
