88:1  Has there come to thee the news of the Overwhelming Event
88:2  Faces on that day will be downcast
88:3  Labouring, toiling
88:4  Entering burning Fire
88:5  Made to drink from a boiling spring
88:6  They will have no food but of thorns
88:7  Neither nourishing nor satisfying hunger
88:8  Faces on that day will be happy
88:9  Glad for their striving
88:10  In a lofty Garden
88:11  Wherein thou wilt hear no vain talk
88:12  Therein is a fountain flowing
88:13  Therein are thrones raised high
88:14  And drinking-cups ready placed
88:15  And cushions set in tows
88:16  And carpets spread out
88:17  See they not the clouds, how they are created
88:18  And the heaven, how it is raised high
88:19  And the mountains, how they are fixed
88:20  And the earth, how it is spread out
88:21  So remind. Thou art only one to remind
88:22  Thou art not warder over them -
88:23  But whoever turns back and disbelieves
88:24  Allah will chastise him with the greatest chastisement
88:25  Surely to Us is their return
88:26  Then it is for Us to call them to account
