Did you notice?
84:1  When the heaven developed cracks
84:2  And it gave ear (i.e., listened) to its Nourisher-Sustainer, and (thus) it was proved true (to Allah’s Command)
84:3  And when the earth was expanded enough
84:4  and it cast out what (had been) therein, and became empty
84:5  And it gave ear to its Nourisher-Sustainer, and (thus) it was proved true
84:6  O you the human being! Surely, you are (the) one striving towards your Nourisher-Sustainer — a hard effort, then (you are the one) who must meet Him
84:7  Then as for him who is given his record from his right (side)
84:8  then soon he is put to Accountability — a very easy reckoning
84:9  And he returns to his followers in joy
84:10  And as for him who is given his record from behind his back
84:11  so soon he will seek destruction (so that he may become destroyed rather than stay in a lasting punishment)
84:12  And he shall enter the blazing Fire
84:13  Verily, he was among his family fully involved in joy and amusement
84:14  Verily, he thought that he will never return (to Allah)
84:15  Yes! Verily, his Nourisher-Sustainer remained a Strict Watch over him (throughout his worldly span of life)
84:16  So beware! I bring to witness the heaven in evening twilight
84:17  and (I bring to witness) the night and whatever it enveloped and hid
84:18  and (I bring to witness) the moon when it became fully felt and known (i.e., it revealed its secrets to man)
84:19  Without doubt you would surely embark (for journey) from one field to another field (of influence of a heavenly body)
84:20  So what (is the matter) with them that they Believe not
84:21  And when is recited unto them Al-Quran they do not submit
84:22  Nay, (on the contrary) those who have disbelieved, they belie (the contents of the Book)
84:23  And Allah knows better what they amass
84:24  So announce to them ‘the good news’ about a painful torment —
84:25  save those who have Believed and performed righteous deeds — for them is a reward, not stopped or interrupted
