Did you notice?
91:1  By the sun and her forenoon splendour
91:2  by the moon when he follows her
91:3  by the day when it reveals her
91:4  by the night when it covers her
91:5  by the sky and Him who built it
91:6  by the earth and Him who spread it
91:7  by the soul and Him who fashioned it
91:8  and inspired it with [discernment between] its virtues and vices
91:9  one who purifies it is felicitous
91:10  and one who betrays it fails
91:11  The [people of] Thamud denied [Allah’s signs] out of their rebellion
91:12  when the most wretched of them rose up
91:13  But then the apostle of Allah said to them, ‘Let Allah’s she-camel drink!&rsquo
91:14  But they impugned him and then hamstrung her, so their Lord took them unawares by night because of their sin, and levelled it
91:15  And He does not fear its outcome
