Did you notice?
85:1  The sky full of constellations stands witness
85:2  And the Promised Day (when you see the Truth triumph over Falsehood)
85:3  And He Who watches, and that which is being watched (will see that)
85:4  Destroy themselves all those who dig ditches for others
85:5  Igniting the fire of rage
85:6  Behold, they contemplate and wait in anticipation
85:7  And they are well aware of what they are doing to the believers
85:8  Whom they hate for no other reason than that they believe in Allah, the Almighty, the Owner of Praise.(5:59), (22:40)
85:9  And to Whom belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth. But Allah is Watcher over all things
85:10  Behold, those who persecute the believing men and the believing women, and then repent not, theirs, verily, is the doom of Hell - yes, theirs is the doom of burning
85:11  Verily, those who choose to be graced with belief and do actions that help people, theirs are the Gardens underneath which rivers flow. That is the Great Eminence
85:12  (Yet) Verily, strong is the Grip of your Lord
85:13  Behold, He it is Who originates (life) and then makes again and again
85:14  And He is the Forgiving, the Loving
85:15  Lord of the Supreme Throne
85:16  Carrying out His Plan according to His Laws. ('Fe'l' = Doing = Carrying out. 'Ma Yurid' = As He plans = As He wills = In accordance with His Laws)
85:17  Has the story reached you of the great troops
85:18  Of Pharaoh and Thamud
85:19  And yet the rejecters knowingly live in denial
85:20  But Allah surrounds them without them conceiving it. ('Minwwaraihim' = From behind them = Without them conceiving it)
85:21  Nay, but this is Sublime Qur'an
85:22  (Inscribed) upon Tablet Imperishable
