88:1  Hath the tidings of the day that shall OVERSHADOW, reached thee
88:2  Downcast on that day shall be the countenances of some
88:3  Travailing and worn
88:4  Burnt at the scorching fire
88:5  Made to drink from a fountain fiercely boiling
88:6  No food shall they have but the fruit of Darih
88:7  Which shall not fatten, nor appease their hunger
88:8  Joyous too, on that day, the countenances of others
88:9  Well pleased with their labours past
88:10  In a lofty garden
88:11  No vain discourse shalt thou hear therein
88:12  Therein shall be a gushing fountain
88:13  Therein shall be raised couches
88:14  And goblets ready placed
88:15  And cushions laid in order
88:16  And carpets spread forth
88:17  Can they not look up to the clouds, how they are created
88:18  And to the heaven how it is upraised
88:19  And to the mountains how they are rooted
88:20  And to the earth how it is outspread
88:21  Warn thou then; for thou art a warner only
88:22  Thou hast no authority over them
88:23  But whoever shall turn back and disbelieve
88:24  God shall punish him with the greater punishment
88:25  Verily to Us shall they return
88:26  Then shall it be Our's to reckon with them
