Did you notice?
85:1  By the heaven full of stars
85:2  And the promised day
85:3  And the bearer of witness and that to which witness is borne
85:4  Destruction overtake the companions of the trench! -
85:5  The fire fed with fuel -
85:6  When they sit by it
85:7  And they are witnesses of what they do with the believers
85:8  And they punished them for naught but that they believed in Allah, the Mighty, the Praised
85:9  Whose is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. And Allah is Witness of all things
85:10  Those who persecute believing men and believing women, then repent not, theirs is the chastisement of hell, and theirs the chastisement of burning
85:11  Those who believe and do good, theirs are Gardens wherein flow rivers. That is the great achievement
85:12  Surely the grip of thy Lord is severe
85:13  Surely He it is Who creates first and reproduces
85:14  And He is the Forgiving, the Loving
85:15  Lord of the Throne of Power, the Glorious
85:16  Doer of what He intends
85:17  Has not there come to thee the story of the hosts
85:18  Of Pharaoh and Thamud
85:19  Nay, those who disbelieve give the lie -
85:20  And Allah encompasses them on all sides
85:21  Nay, it is a glorious Qur’an
85:22  In a guarded tablet
