88:1  Have you been informed of the great talk apropos the overwhelming Event?
88:2  Some faces are then incensed with humiliation
88:3  Reflecting the heedless life they spent uselessly, unprofitably and improvidently; and now they look faint and sick with travail and fear
88:4  They are entering into Hell, to suffer the intense heat of the blazing Fire
88:5  Only to be given to drink from water bubbling in agitation and issuing from a boiling hot spring
88:6  And nothing will they feed on but poisonous, noxious, foul thorny shrubs
88:7  Which neither nourish nor pacify their hunger pains
88:8  There will be other faces radiant with delight
88:9  Pleased with doing their endeavour in life lifting to Allah their inward sight
88:10  Enjoying the exalted gardens of Bliss
88:11  No matter of little value or insignificance will they hear therein, nor will they hear ill - tongues or what is morally evil
88:12  Therein is water streaming forth from a delightful spring
88:13  Therein are dignified seats covered with embroidered cloth woven in gold and ornamented with brocade
88:14  And drinking glasses set at hand
88:15  And cushions, ranked in rows, so bedecked and ornate
88:16  And rich carpets all round
88:17  Do they - the pagan Arabs - not ponder how camels* were created
88:18  How the heavens* have been distantly elevated
88:19  How the mountains* which stabilize the earth have been firmly erected
88:20  And how the earth has been expanded* and prepared for life thereon
88:21  You just continue to exhort the people, for you are here to put them in mind of Alla
88:22  And no authority have you over them
88:23  But he whose attitude has served to disincline him from doing reverence to Allah and to turn a deaf ear to all He has ordained
88:24  Will He requite him with a condign punishment and in Hell will he forever, be detained
88:25  Unto Us shall be their return
88:26  And then, their judgement will be Our concern
