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
