88:1  Has not there come to you the news of the overwhelming calamity
88:2  (Some) faces on that day shall be downcast
88:3  Laboring, toiling
88:4  Entering into burning fire
88:5  Made to drink from a boiling spring
88:6  They shall have no food but of thorns
88:7  Which will neither fatten nor avail against hunger
88:8  (Other) faces on that day shall be happy
88:9  Well-pleased because of their striving
88:10  In a lofty garden
88:11  Wherein you shall not hear 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 a row
88:16  And carpets spread out
88:17  Will they not then consider the camels, how they are created
88:18  And the heaven, how it is reared aloft
88:19  And the mountains, how they are firmly fixed
88:20  And the earth, how it is made a vast expanse
88:21  Therefore do remind, for you are only a reminder
88:22  You are not a watcher 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 turning back
88:26  Then surely upon Us is the taking of their account
