88:1  Has there come to you the description of the Overwhelming Event
88:2  Many faces that day will be humbled
88:3  laboring, exhausted
88:4  They will enter into the scorching fire
88:5  They will be made to drink water from a boiling spring
88:6  There will be no food for them except from a thorny plan
88:7  that will neither nourish, nor satisfy hunger
88:8  Many faces that day will be full of glamour
88:9  well pleased with their endeavor
88:10  in a lofty garden
88:11  in which they will not hear any absurd talk
88:12  In it there is a flowing spring
88:13  In it there are elevated couche
88:14  and goblets, well placed
88:15  and cushions, arraye
88:16  and carpets, spread around
88:17  So, do they not look at the camels how they are created
88:18  and at the sky, how it is raised high
88:19  and at the mountains, how they are installed
88:20  and at the earth, how it is spread out
88:21  So, (O Prophet,) keep on preaching; you are only a preacher
88:22  You are not a taskmaster set up over them
88:23  but whoever turns away and disbelieves
88:24  Allah will punish him with the greatest torment
88:25  Surely towards Us they have to return
88:26  then it is Our job to call them to account
