88:1  Hast thou received the story of the Enveloper
88:2  Faces on that day humbled
88:3  labouring, toilworn
88:4  roasting at a scorching fire
88:5  watered at a boiling fountain
88:6  no food for them but cactus thor
88:7  unfattening, unappeasing hunger
88:8  Faces on that day jocund
88:9  with their striving well-pleased
88:10  in a sublime Garden
88:11  hearing there no babble
88:12  therein a running fountain
88:13  therein uplifted couche
88:14  and goblets set fort
88:15  and cushions arraye
88:16  and carpets outspread
88:17  What, do they not consider how the camel was created
88:18  how heaven was lifted up
88:19  how the mountains were hoisted
88:20  how the earth was outstretched
88:21  Then remind them! Thou art only a reminder
88:22  thou art not charged to oversee them
88:23  But he who turns his back, and disbelieves
88:24  God shall chastise him with the greatest chastisement
88:25  Truly, to Us is their return
88:26  then upon Us shall rest their reckoning
