Did you notice?
79:1  By the angels who tear forth the souls of some with violence
79:2  and by those who draw forth the souls of others with gentleness
79:3  by those who glide swimmingly through the air with the commands of God
79:4  and those who precede and usher the righteous to paradise
79:5  and those who subordinately govern the affairs of this world
79:6  On a certain day, the disturbing blast of the trumpet shall disturb the universe
79:7  and the subsequent blast shall follow it
79:8  On that day men's hearts shall tremble
79:9  Their looks shall be cast down
79:10  The infidels say, shall we surely be made to return whence we came
79:11  After we shall have become rotten bones, shall we be again raised to life
79:12  They say, this then will be a return to loss
79:13  Verily it will be but one sounding of the trumpet
79:14  and behold, they shall appear alive on the face of the earth
79:15  Hath not the story of Moses reached thee
79:16  When his Lord called unto him in the holy valley Towa, saying
79:17  go unto Pharaoh; for he is insolently wicked
79:18  and say, hast thou a desire to become just and holy
79:19  And I will direct thee unto thy Lord, that thou mayest fear to transgress
79:20  And he shewed him the very great sign of the rod turned into a serpent
79:21  But he charged Moses with imposture, and rebelled against God
79:22  Then he turned back hastily
79:23  and he assembled the magicians, and cried aloud, saying
79:24  I am your supreme Lord
79:25  Wherefore God chastised him with the punishment of the life to come, and also of this present life
79:26  Verily herein is an example unto him who feareth to rebel
79:27  Are ye more difficult to create, or the heaven which God hath built
79:28  He hath raised the height thereof, and hath perfectly formed the same
79:29  And He hath made the night thereof dark, and hath produced the light thereof
79:30  After this, He stretched out the earth
79:31  whence He caused to spring forth the water thereof, and the pasture thereof
79:32  and He established the mountains
79:33  for the use of yourselves, and of your cattle
79:34  When the prevailing, the great day shall come
79:35  on that day shall a man call to remembrance what he hath purposely done
79:36  And hell shall be exposed to the view of the spectator
79:37  And whoso shall have transgressed
79:38  and shall have chosen this present life
79:39  verily hell shall be his abode
79:40  But whoso shall have dreaded the appearing before his Lord, and shall have refrained his soul from lust
79:41  verily paradise shall be his abode
79:42  They will ask thee concerning the last hour, when will be the fixed time thereof
79:43  By what means canst thou give any information of the same
79:44  Unto thy Lord belongeth the knowledge of the period thereof
79:45  And thou art only a warner, who fearest the same
79:46  The day whereon they shall see the same, it shall seem to them as though they had not tarried in the world longer than an evening, or a morning thereof
