Did you notice?
78:1  What are they asking about
78:2  The momentous announcemen
78:3  about which they differ
78:4  They will find out
78:5  In the end they will find out
78:6  Did We not make the earth smooth
78:7  and make the mountains to keep it stable
78:8  Did We not create you in pairs
78:9  give you sleep for rest
78:10  the night as a cover
78:11  and the day for your livelihood
78:12  Did We not build seven strong [heavens] above you
78:13  and make a blazing lamp
78:14  Did We not send water pouring down from the cloud
78:15  to bring forth with it grain, plants
78:16  and luxuriant gardens
78:17  A time has been appointed for the Day of Decision
78:18  a Day when the Trumpet will sound and you will come forward in crowds
78:19  when the sky will open up like wide portals
78:20  when the mountains will vanish like a mirage
78:21  Hell lies in wait
78:22  a home for oppressor
78:23  to stay in for a long, long time
78:24  where they will taste no coolness nor drin
78:25  except one that is scalding and dark–&ndash
78:26  a fitting requital
78:27  for they did not fear a reckoning
78:28  and they rejected Our messages as lies
78:29  We have recorded everything in a Record
78:30  ‘Taste this: all you will get from Us is more torment.&rsquo
78:31  For those who were aware of God there is supreme fulfilment
78:32  private gardens, vineyards
78:33  nubile, well-matched companions
78:34  and an overflowing cup
78:35  There they will hear no vain or lying talk
78:36  a reward from your Lord, a fitting gif
78:37  from the Lord of the heavens and earth and everything between, the Lord of Mercy. They will have no authority from Him to speak
78:38  On the Day when the Spirit and the angels stand in rows, they will not speak except for those to whom the Lord of Mercy gives permission, who will say only what is right
78:39  That is the Day of Truth. So whoever wishes to do so should take the path that leads to his Lord
78:40  We have warned you of imminent torment, on the Day when every person will see what their own hands have sent ahead for them, when the disbeliever will say, ‘If only I were dust!&rsquo
