Sayyid Qutb rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Have you heard the story of the Enveloper?
88:2 Some faces on that day are downcast,
88:3 labour weary, worn out,
88:4 about to enter a scorching fire,
88:5 made to drink from a boiling fountain.
88:6 Their only food shall be nothing but dry thorns,
88:7 which will neither nourish nor satisfy their hunger.
88:8 Other faces on that day are jocund,
88:9 well-pleased with their striving,
88:10 in a sublime garden,
88:11 where they hear no babble.
88:12 A running fountain shall be there,
88:13 and raised couches,
88:14 and goblets placed ready,
88:15 and cushions laid in order,
88:16 and carpets spread out.
88:17 Let them reflect on the camels, how they were created;
88:18 and heaven, how it is raised aloft;
88:19 and the mountains, how they are hoisted;
88:20 and the earth, how it is spread out.
88:21 Therefore exhort them; your task is only to exhort.
88:22 You are not their overseer.
88:23 But he who turns his back and disbelieves,
88:24 God shall inflict on him the greatest suffering.
88:25 To Us they shall surely return,
88:26 when We shall bring them to account.
