Did you notice?
88:1  Has there come to thee the news of the overwhelming calamity
88:2  Some faces on that day will be downcast
88:3  Toiling, weary
88:4  They shall enter a blazing Fire
88:5  And will be made to drink from a boiling spring
88:6  They will have no food save that of dry, bitter and thorny herbage
88:7  Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger
88:8  And some faces on that day will be joyful
88:9  Well-pleased with their past striving
88:10  In a lofty Garden
88:11  Wherein thou wilt hear no vain talk
88:12  Therein is a running spring
88:13  Therein are raised couches
88:14  And goblets properly placed
88:15  And cushions beautifully ranged in rows
88:16  And carpets tastefully spread
88:17  Do they not then look at the camels, how they are created
88:18  And at the heaven, how it is raised high
88:19  And at the mountains, how they are fixed
88:20  And at the earth, how it is spread out
88:21  Admonish, therefore, for thou art but an admonisher
88:22  Thou art not appointed a keeper over them
88:23  But whoever turns away and disbelieves
88:24  ALLAH will punish him with the greatest punishment
88:25  Unto US, surely, is their return
88:26  Then, surely, it is for US to call them to account
