Did you notice?
91:1  By the sun and his brightness
91:2  And the moon when she borrows light from him
91:3  And the day when it exposes it to view
91:4  And the night when it draws a veil over it
91:5  And the heaven and its make
91:6  And the earth and its extension
91:7  And the soul and its perfection! -
91:8  So He reveals to it its way of evil and its way of good
91:9  He is indeed successful who causes it to grow
91:10  And he indeed fails who buries it
91:11  Thamud rejected (the truth) in their inordinacy
91:12  When the basest of them broke forth with mischief -
91:13  So Allah’s messenger said to them: (Leave alone) Allah’s she-camel, and (give) her (to) drink
91:14  But they called him a liar and slaughtered her. So their Lord destroyed them for their sin and levelled them (with the ground)
91:15  And He fears not its consequence
