88:1  Has there come to you the news of the overwhelming
88:2  Faces on that Day will be shamed
88:3  Laboring and exhausted
88:4  Roasting in a scorching Fire
88:5  Given to drink from a flaming spring
88:6  They will have no food except thorns
88:7  That neither nourishes, nor satisfies hunger
88:8  Faces on that Day will be joyful
88:9  Satisfied with their endeavor
88:10  In a lofty Garden
88:11  In it you will hear no nonsense
88:12  In it is a flowing spring
88:13  In it are raised beds
88:14  And cups set in place
88:15  And cushions set in rows
88:16  And carpets spread around
88:17  Do they not look at the camels—how they are created
88:18  And at the sky—how it is raised
88:19  And at the mountains—how they are installed
88:20  And at the earth—how it is spread out
88:21  So remind. You are only a reminder
88:22  You have no control over them
88:23  But whoever turns away and disbelieves
88:24  God will punish him with the greatest punishment
88:25  To Us is their return
88:26  Then upon Us rests their reckoning
