88:1  Has news of the Overwhelmer reached you?
88:2  Some faces on that Day will be downcast,
88:3  labouring, toiling endlessly,
88:4  roasting in a red-hot Fire,
88:5  drinking from a boiling spring.
88:6  They have no food but a bitter thorny bush
88:7  which neither nourishes nor satisfies.
88:8  Some faces on that Day will be radiant,
88:9  well-pleased with their efforts
88:10  in an elevated Garden
88:11  where no prattle is ever heard.
88:12  In it is a gushing spring
88:13  and raised-up couches,
88:14  and set-out goblets,
88:15  and lined-up cushions,
88:16  and spread-out rugs.
88:17  Have they not looked at the camel — how it was created?
88:18  and at the sky — how it was raised up?
88:19  and at the mountains — how they were embedded?
88:20  and at the earth — how it was smoothed out?
88:21  So remind them! You are only a reminder.
88:22  You are not in control of them.
88:23  But as for anyone who turns away and is kafir,
88:24  Allah will punish him with the Greatest Punishment.
88:25  Certainly it is to Us they will return.
88:26  Then their Reckoning is Our concern.
