Did you notice?

69:1  The Inevitable
69:2  What is the Inevitable
69:3  And what do you know what the Inevitable is
69:4  The Thamood and the AAad denied possibility of the Striking Calamity happening
69:5  Then as for Thamood, they were destroyed by an overpowering blast!h
69:6  And as for the AAad, they were destroyed by a furious, violent storm
69:7  HE let it [storm] loose upon them for seven nights and eight days in succession. You would have seen the people there then lying prostrate, as though they were uprooted trunks of palm trees
69:8  Do you now see any trace of them
69:9  And Pharaoh and those before him and the people of the overturned habitations [the people of Lot] committed the same sin
69:10  And they followed not the Messenger of their Lord! So He seized them severely
69:11  When the water rose to great heights indeed, We bore you upon a floating vessel.h
69:12  So as to make it for you an event to remember, and so that an attentive ear commits it to memory
69:13  So when the Trumpet is blown with a single blo
69:14  And the earth and the mountains are lifted and then crushed at one stroke
69:15  On that Day shall the Event [the Hereafter, the Inevitable referred to in Verse above] come to pass
69:16  And the sky will be rent asunder, so it becomes loose that Day
69:17  And the angels will be at its edges. And eight of them will carry the Throne of your Lord that Day
69:18  That Day you shall be presented (before Allah) and no secret of yours shall remain hidden
69:19  He then, whose record will be given to him in his right hand, will say, "Here, read this record of mine!"
69:20  "I did indeed expect that I would come face to face with my record."
69:21  He shall then be living a life of blis
69:22  In a lofty Garde
69:23  Clusters of its fruits will be within reach
69:24  "Eat and drink to your satisfaction on account of what you did in the days gone by."
69:25  And he, whose Record will be given to him in his left hand, will say, "Would that I had never been given my Record!"
69:26  "And had I not come to know my account!"
69:27  "Oh! Would that [death in the worldly life] be the end of me!"
69:28  "My wealth has been of no use to me!"
69:29  "My authority is gone from me!"
69:30  [Divine Order for him whose record is given in his left hand:] Seize him and shackle him
69:31  Then burn him in the Blazing Fire
69:32  Then tie him to a chain, seventy cubits long
69:33  He would not believe in Allah, the Almighty
69:34  And he would feel no urge to feed the poor
69:35  And so no friend for him here today
69:36  And no food except from discharged wastes
69:37  Eat it not but the sinners
69:38  But no! I swear by what you se
69:39  And by what you do not se
69:40  This [the Qur'aan] certainly indeed is a noble Messenger's [Angel's] Word
69:41  And not that of a poet! Little do you believe
69:42  Nor is it the word of a soothsayer! Little do you reflect
69:43  It is a reveation from the Lord of the Universe
69:44  And had he [the Prophet] ascribed to Us some of his own sayings
69:45  We would surely have seized from him by the right hand
69:46  And then severed from him the life vein
69:47  And none of you could wit old Us from doing this to him
69:48  And, indeed, it [the Qur'aan] is a divine Counsel for those who fear Allah
69:49  And We do indeed know that some among you deny this
69:50  And, indeed, it [the Qur'aan] is certainly a cause of regret for those who suppress the Truth
69:51  And certainly indeed it [the Qur'aan] is the absolute Truth
69:52  Chant, then, the name of your Lord, the Almighty
