George Sale rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Hath the news of the overwhelming day of judgment reached thee
88:2 The countenances of some, on that day, shall be cast down
88:3 labouring and toiling
88:4 They shall be cast into scorching fire to be broiled
88:5 They shall be given to drink of a boiling fountain
88:6 They shall have no food, but of dry thorns and thistles
88:7 which shall not fatten, neither shall they satisfy hunger
88:8 But the countenances of others, on that day, shall be joyful
88:9 well pleased with their past endeavour
88:10 They shall be placed in a lofty garden
88:11 wherein thou shalt hear no vain discourse
88:12 Therein shall be a running fountain
88:13 Therein shall be raised beds
88:14 and goblets placed before them
88:15 and cushions laid in order
88:16 and carpets ready spread
88:17 Do they not consider the camels, how they are created
88:18 and the heaven, how it is raised
88:19 and the mountains, how they are fixed
88:20 and the earth, how it is extended
88:21 Wherefore warn thy people; for thou art a warner only
88:22 Thou art not impowered to act with authority over them
88:23 But whoever shall turn back, and disbelieve
88:24 God shall punish him with the greater punishment of the life to come
88:25 Verily unto us shall they return
88:26 Then shall it be our part to bring them to account
