Did you notice?
91:1  By the sun and its forenoon
91:2  and by the moon when it related to it
91:3  and by the daytime when it displayed it
91:4  and by the nighttime when it overcomes it
91:5  and by the heaven and what built it
91:6  and by the earth and what widened it
91:7  and by the soul and what shaped it
91:8  and, then, inspired it to its acting immorally and God-consciousness,
91:9  he who made it pure prospered.
91:10  Surely, is frustrated whoever seduced it.
91:11  Thamud denied because of their overboldness.
91:12  When the disappointed among them were aroused,
91:13  and the Messenger of God said to them: Allow watering to the she-camel of God.
91:14  Then, they denied him; then, they crippled her. So their Lord doomed them for their impiety.
91:15  Then, He leveled them. And He fears not its Ultimate End.
