Did you notice?
78:1  Concerning what do the unbelievers ask questions of one another
78:2  Concerning the great news of the resurrection
78:3  about which they disagree
78:4  Assuredly they shall hereafter know the truth thereof
78:5  Again, assuredly they shall hereafter know the truth thereof
78:6  Have We not made the earth for a bed
78:7  and the mountains for stakes to fix the same
78:8  And have We not created you of two sexes
78:9  and appointed your sleep for rest
78:10  and made the night a garment to cover you
78:11  and destined the day to the gaining your livelihood
78:12  and built over you seven solid heavens
78:13  and placed therein a burning lamp
78:14  And do We not send down from the clouds pressing forth rain, water pouring down in abundance
78:15  that We may thereby produce corn, and herbs
78:16  and gardens planted thick with trees
78:17  Verily the day of separation is a fixed period
78:18  The day whereon the trumpet shall sound, and ye shall come in troops to judgment
78:19  and the heaven shall be opened, and shall be full of gates for the angels to pass through
78:20  and the mountains shall pass away, and become as a vapour
78:21  verily hell shall be a place of ambush
78:22  a receptacle for the transgressors
78:23  who shall remain therein for ages
78:24  They shall not taste any refreshment therein, or any drink
78:25  except boiling water, and filthy corruption
78:26  A fit recompense for their deeds
78:27  For they hoped that they should not be brought to an account
78:28  and they disbelieved our signs, accusing them of falsehood
78:29  But every thing have We computed, and written down
78:30  Taste, therefore: We will not add unto you any other than torment
78:31  But for the pious is prepared a place of bliss
78:32  Gardens planted with trees, and vineyards
78:33  and damsels with swelling breasts, of equal age with themselves
78:34  and a full cup
78:35  They shall hear no vain discourse there, nor any falsehood
78:36  This shall be their recompense from thy Lord; a gift fully sufficient
78:37  From the Lord of heaven and earth, and of whatever is between them; the Merciful. The inhabitants of heaven or of earth shall not dare to demand audience of Him
78:38  The day whereon the spirit Gabriel, and the other angels shall stand in order, they shall not speak in behalf of themselves or others, except he only to whom the Merciful shall grant permission, and who shall say that which is right
78:39  This is the infallible day. Whoso, therefore, willeth, let him return unto his Lord
78:40  Verily We threaten you with a punishment nigh at hand: The day whereon a man shall behold the good or evil deeds which his hands have sent before him; and the unbeliever shall say, would to God I were dust
