Did you notice?
79:1  By those who tear out violently
79:2  And by those who gaily release
79:3  And by those who float through the air
79:4  And the preceders who precede
79:5  And those who manage the affair
79:6  On the day when the quaking quake
79:7  which the following one shall succeed
79:8  Hearts on that day shall tremble
79:9  eyes thereon be humbled
79:10  They say, 'Shall we be sent back to our old course?
79:11  What! when we are rotten bones?
79:12  they say, 'That then were a losing return!
79:13  But it will only be one scare
79:14  and lo! they will be on the surface
79:15  Has the story of Moses come to you
79:16  when his Lord addressed him in the holy valley of Tuva
79:17  'Go unto Pharaoh, verily, he is outrageous
79:18  and say, "Hast thou a wish to purify thyself
79:19  and that I may guide thee to thy Lord, and thou mayest fear?"
79:20  So he showed him the greatest signs
79:21  but he called him a liar and rebelled
79:22  Then he retreated hastily
79:23  and gathered, and proclaimed
79:24  and said, 'I am your Lord most High!
79:25  but God seized him with the punishment of the future life and of the former
79:26  Verily, in that is a lesson to him who fears
79:27  Are ye harder to create or the heaven that He has built
79:28  He raised its height and fashioned it
79:29  and made its night to cover it, and brought forth its noonday light
79:30  and the earth after that He did stretch out
79:31  He brings forth from it its water and its pasture
79:32  And the mountains He did firmly set
79:33  a provision for you and for your cattle
79:34  And when the great predominant calamity shall come
79:35  on the day when man shall remember what he strove after
79:36  and hell shall be brought out for him who sees
79:37  And as for him who was outrageou
79:38  and preferred the life of this world
79:39  verily, hell is the resort
79:40  But as for him who feared the station of his Lord, and prohibited his soul from lust
79:41  verily, Paradise is the resort
79:42  They shall ask thee about the Hour, for when it is set
79:43  Whereby canst thou mention it
79:44  Unto thy Lord its period belongs
79:45  Thou art only a warner to him who fears it
79:46  On the day they see it, it will be as though they had only tarried an evening or the noon thereof
