88:1  HAVE YOU heard of the Event that shall overwhelm all
88:2  On that day there shall be downcast faces
88:3  haggard and worn out
88:4  burnt by a scorching fire
88:5  drinking from a seething fountain
88:6  Their only food shall be bitter thorns
88:7  which will neither sustain them nor satisfy their hunger
88:8  On that day there shall be radiant faces
88:9  well-pleased with their labours
88:10  in a lofty Garden
88:11  Therein shall they hear no idle talk
88:12  therein shall be a gushing fountain
88:13  therein shall be raised soft couche
88:14  with goblets placed before them
88:15  silken cushions ranged in orde
88:16  and carpets richly spread
88:17  Do they never reflect on the camels, how they were created
88:18  On the heaven, how it was raised on high
88:19  On the mountains, how they were set down
88:20  On the earth, how it was flattened
88:21  Therefore admonish; Your duty is only to admonish
88:22  you are not their keeper
88:23  As for those that turn their backs and disbelieve
88:24  God will torment them with the supreme torment
88:25  To Us shall they return
88:26  and then We will Ourselves bring them to account
