Surah 88. The Overwhelming, The Pall
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. Whilst they enter the Blazing Fire,-
88:5. Whilst they are given, to drink, of a boiling hot spring,
88:6. No food will there be for them but a bitter "Humble Pie"
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 warning, for thou art one to caution.
88:22. Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs.
88:23. But if any turn away and reject "I AM",-
88:24. "I AM" 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.
