88

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

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 God,-

88:24. God 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.
