88:1  Has the story reached thee of the overwhelming (Event)
88:2  Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated
88:3  Labouring (hard), weary,
88:4  The while they enter the Blazing Fire,
88:5  The while they are given, to drink, of a boiling hot spring
88:6  No food will there be for them but a bitter Dhari
88:7  Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger
88:8  (Other) faces that Day will be joyful
88:9  Pleased with their striving,
88:10  In a Garden on high
88:11  Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity
88:12  Therein will be a bubbling spring
88:13  Therein will be Thrones (of dignity), raised on high
88:14  Goblets placed (ready)
88:15  And cushions set in rows
88:16  And rich carpets (all) spread out
88:17  Do they not look at the Camels, how they are made?
88:18  And at the Sky, how it is raised high?
88:19  And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?
88:20  And at the Earth, how it is spread out
88:21  Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish
88:22  Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs
88:23  But if any turn away and reject Allah,
88:24  Allah will punish him with a mighty Punishment
88:25  For to Us will be their return
88:26  Then it will be for Us to call them to account
