Did you notice?
82:1  When the sky bursts apart
82:2  when planets are strewn around,
82:3  when the seas spill forth,
82:4  when graves are overturned,
82:5  [each] soul will know what it sent on ahead and has left behind.
82:6  O man, what has lured you away from your generous Lord
82:7  Who created you, fashioned you and proportioned you
82:8  in whatever shape He wished? He has put your frame together.
82:9  Nevertheless you still reject religion!
82:10  Yet over you (all) there stand
82:11  some noble guardians, writing it all down;
82:12  they know anything you do.
82:13  The virtuous shall be in bliss,
82:14  while the loose-living will be in Hades;
82:15  they shall roast there on the Day for Repayment,
82:16  they will never be led out of it.
82:17  What will make you realize what the Day for Repayment is?
82:18  Again, what will make you realize what the Day for Repayment will be like?
82:19  [It is] a day when no soul will control anything in favor of any other soul; God [Alone] will hold command on that day!
