[Naba 78:5] Again surely yes, they will soon come to know!
[Naba 78:6] Did We not make the earth a bed?

[Naba 78:39] That is the True Day; therefore whoever wills may take the path towards his Lord.
[Naba 78:40] We warn you of a punishment that has come near; a day on which man will see what his own hands have sent ahead, and the disbeliever will say, Alas if only I were dust!
