Did you notice?
87:1  Magnify the Name of thy Lord the Most Hig
87:2  who created and shaped
87:3  who determined and guided
87:4  who brought forth the pasturag
87:5  then made it a blackening wrack
87:6  We shall make thee recite, to forget no
87:7  save what God wills; surely He knows what is spoken aloud and what is hidden
87:8  We shall ease thee unto the Easing
87:9  Therefore remind, if the Reminder profits
87:10  and he who fears shall remember
87:11  but the most wretched shall flout it
87:12  even he who shall roast in the Great Fire
87:13  then he shall neither die therein, nor live
87:14  Prosperous is he who has cleansed himself
87:15  and mentions the Name of his Lord, and prays
87:16  Nay, but you prefer the present life
87:17  and the world to come is better, and more enduring
87:18  Surely this is in the ancient scrolls
87:19  the scrolls of Abraham and Moses
