Did you notice?
82:1  WHEN THE SKY is cleft asunder
82:2  and when the stars are scattered
82:3  and when the seas burst beyond their bounds
82:4  and when the graves are overturned &ndash
82:5  every human being will [at last] comprehend, what he has sent ahead and what he has held back [in this world]
82:6  O MAN! What is it that lures thee away from thy bountiful Sustainer
82:7  who has created thee, and formed thee in accordance with what thou art meant' to be, and shaped thy nature in just proportions
82:8  having put thee together in whatever form He willed [thee to have]
82:9  Nay, [O men,] but you [are lured away from God whenever you are tempted to] give the lie to [God’s] Judgment
82:10  And yet, verily, there are ever-watchful forces over you
82:11  noble, recording
82:12  aware of whatever you do
82:13  Behold, [in the life to come] the truly virtuous: will indeed be in bliss
82:14  whereas, behold, the wicked will indeed be in a blazing fire &ndash
82:15  [a fire] which they shall enter on Judgment Day
82:16  and which they shall not [be able to] evade
82:17  And what could make thee conceive what that Judgment Day will be
82:18  And once again: What could make thee conceive what that Judgment Day will be
82:19  [It will be] a Day when no human being shall be of the least avail to another human being: for on that Day [it will become manifest that] all sovereignty is God's alone
