88:1  Has the story reached you, of the overwhelming
88:2  Some faces on that day shall be humbled
88:3  Toiling, weary
88:4  While they broil upon a burning Fire
88:5  While they drink from a boiling spring
88:6  No food shall they have save from the bitter Dhari
88:7  Which shall not nourish nor avail against hunger
88:8  Other faces on that day shall be joyful
88:9  Content with their past endeavours
88:10  In a lofty (sublime) Garde
88:11  Wherein they shall hear no foolish word
88:12  Wherein is a flowing fountain
88:13  Wherein are Thrones (of dignity) raised on high
88:14  And goblets set down ready
88:15  And cushions arranged
88:16  And carpets spread
88:17  Do they not look then at the camel, how she is created
88:18  And at the heaven how it is raised high
88:19  And at the mountains how they are set firm
88:20  And at the earth how it is spread out
88:21  Therefore, remind them: for you are only one to remind
88:22  you are not in authority over them
88:23  But such as turns his back and disbelieves
88:24  Him will Allah punish with the greatest torment
88:25  Verily, unto us is their return
88:26  And, verily, for Us is their accounting
