Did you notice?
91:1  I CALL TO witness the sun and his early morning splendour
91:2  And the moon as she follows in his wake
91:3  The day when it reveals his radiance
91:4  The night when it covers him over
91:5  The heavens and its architecture
91:6  The earth and its spreading out
91:7  The soul and how it was integrate
91:8  And given the faculty of knowing what is disruptive and what is intrinsic to it
91:9  He who nourishes it will surely be successful
91:10  And he who confines it will surely come to grief
91:11  The Thamud denied (the truth) in their perversenes
91:12  When among them the great wretch arose
91:13  And the apostle of God had to tell them: "This is God's she-camel, let her drink."
91:14  But they called him a liar and hamstrung her. So God obliterated them for their crime, and (destroyed) all of them alike
91:15  He does not fear the consequence
