T.B.Irving rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Has the story of the Pall ever reached you?
88:2 Some faces will be downcast on that day,
88:3 laboring, toiling.
88:4 They will roast in a scorching fire;
88:5 offered a boiling spring to drink from,
88:6 they will have no food except some cactus
88:7 which will neither fatten (them) nor satisfy their hunger.
88:8 Other faces will be blissful on that day,
88:9 pleased with their effort,
88:10 (dwelling) in a lofty garden.
88:11 No loose talk will be heard in it.
88:12 There will be a flowing spring there;
88:13 by it couches will be raised up,
88:14 glasses set in place,
88:15 cushions lined up
88:16 and carpets spread around.
88:17 Do they not consider how camels have been created?
88:18 Nor how the sky has been lifted up?
88:19 Nor how the mountains have been erected?
88:20 Nor even how the earth has been flattened out?
88:21 So remind: you need only to remind!
88:22 You are no taskmaster set up over them,
88:23 except for someone who turns away and disbelieves;
88:24 God will punish him with the worst torment.
88:25 Toward Us lies their retreat;
88:26 then their reckoning will fall on Us.
