Did you notice?

54:1  The Hour draws near, and the moon is breached.
54:2  And if they see a sign, they turn away and say: "Ongoing magic!"
54:3  And they disbelieved, and followed their desires, and every old tradition
54:4  While the news had come to them in which there was sufficient warning.
54:5  A perfect wisdom; but the warnings are of no benefit.
54:6  So turn away from them; the Day will come when the caller will announce a terrible disaster.
54:7  With their eyes humiliated, they come out of the graves like scattered locusts.
54:8  Hastening towards the caller, the rejecters will say: "This is a difficult Day."
54:9  The people of Noah disbelieved before them. They disbelieved Our servant and said: "He is crazy!" And he was oppressed.
54:10  So he called on his Lord: "I am beaten, so grant me victory."
54:11  So We opened the gates of the sky with pouring water.
54:12  And We caused springs to gush out of the earth. Thus the waters met to a command which had been measured.
54:13  We carried him on a craft made of slabs and mortar.
54:14  It ran under Our watchful eyes; a reward for one who was rejected.
54:15  And We have left it as a sign. Are there any who want to learn?
54:16  So how was My retribution after the warnings!
54:17  And We made the Qur'an easy to remember. Are there any who want to learn?
54:18  'Aad disbelieved. So how was My retribution after the warnings
54:19  We sent upon them a violent wind, on a day of continuous misery.
54:20  It uprooted the people as if they were decayed palm tree trunks.
54:21  So how was My retribution after the warnings!
54:22  And We made the Qur'an easy to remember. Are there any who will learn?
54:23  Thamud rejected the warnings.
54:24  They said: "Shall we follow one of us; a human being? We will then go astray, and be in Hell."
54:25  "Has the Reminder come down to him, of all people amongst us? He is an evil liar."
54:26  They will find out tomorrow who the evil liar is.
54:27  We are sending the camel as a test for them. So watch them and be patient.
54:28  And inform them that the water shall be divided between them; each shall be allowed to drink in turn.
54:29  But they called on their friend, and he was paid to slaughter.
54:30  So how was My retribution after the warnings!
54:31  We sent upon them one scream, whereupon they became like harvested hay.
54:32  And We made the Qur'an easy to remember. Are there any who will learn?
54:33  The people of Lot rejected the warners.
54:34  We sent upon them projectiles. Except for the family of Lot, We saved them at dawn.
54:35  A blessing from Us; it is thus that We reward the thankful.
54:36  And he warned them about Our punishment, but they ridiculed the warnings.
54:37  And they sought to remove him from his guests; so We diverted their eyes. "Taste My retribution; you have been warned."
54:38  And in the early morning, a devastating retribution struck them.
54:39  "Taste My retribution; you have been warned."
54:40  And We made the Qur'an easy to remember. Are there any who will learn?
54:41  And the warnings had come to the people of Pharaoh.
54:42  They rejected all Our signs. So We took them, the taking of the Noble, the Able.
54:43  Are your rejecters better than those? Or have you been absolved by the scriptures?
54:44  Or do they say: "We are a large group and we will win."
54:45  The large group will be defeated; they will turn around and flee.
54:46  The Hour is their appointed time, and the Hour is far worse and more painful.
54:47  The criminals are in error and will burn.
54:48  The Day when they will be dragged upon their faces into the Fire: "Taste the agony of the scorching heat!"
54:49  Everything We have created in measure.
54:50  And Our commands are done at once with the blink of an eye.
54:51  And We have destroyed your counterparts. Do any of you wish to learn?
54:52  And everything they had done, is in the scriptures.
54:53  And everything, small or large, is written down
54:54  The righteous will be in gardens and rivers
54:55  In a position of honor, at an Omnipotent King.
