088 : The Overwhelming

88:1
Has the story reached thee of the overwhelming (Event)?

88:2
Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated,

88:3
Labouring (hard), weary,-

88:4
The while they enter the Blazing Fire,-

88:5
The while they are given, to drink, of a boiling hot spring,

88:6
No food will there be for them but a bitter Dhari'

88:7
Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger.

88:8
(Other) faces that Day will be joyful,

88:9
Pleased with their striving,-

88:10
In a Garden on high,

88:11
Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity:

88:12
Therein will be a bubbling spring:

88:13
Therein will be Thrones (of dignity), raised on high,

88:14
Goblets placed (ready),

88:15
And cushions set in rows,

88:16
And rich carpets (all) spread out.

88:17
Do they not look at the Camels, how they are made?-

88:18
And at the Sky, how it is raised high?-

88:19
And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?-

88:20
And at the Earth, how it is spread out?

88:21
Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish.

88:22
Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs.

88:23
But if any turn away and reject Allah,-

88:24
Allah will punish him with a mighty Punishment,

88:25
For to Us will be their return;

88:26
Then it will be for Us to call them to account.
