88:1  Did the news reach you of the Ghashiya (the overwhelming event that wraps and covers people – Doomsday)?
88:2  (Some) faces that day will look down in shame!
88:3  Having worked hard (complying with customs, traditions and customary practices of worship) and exhausted for nothing!
88:4  They (those faces) will be subject to an intense fire!
88:5  They will be made to drink from a boiling spring!
88:6  And there will be no food for them, except for a poisonous thorny plant,
88:7  Which will neither nourish them nor appease their hunger.
88:8  And many faces that day will show signs of pleasure.
88:9  They will be pleased with the results of their (duly spent) efforts!
88:10  In an elevated Paradise!
88:11  They will hear no baseless speech therein.
88:12  Within a (continually) flowing spring (of knowledge and power),
88:13  Couches raised high,
88:14  And cups put in place,
88:15  And cushions lined up (behind them),
88:16  And carpets spread (beneath them),
88:17  Do they not look at the camels (rain clouds), how they are created?
88:18  And (do they not look at) the sky, how it has been raised (how space has been formed)!
88:19  And (do they not look at) the mountains, how they have been set!
88:20  And (do they not look at) the earth, how it has been furnished!
88:21  So remind! For you are a reminder (you have been disclosed to remind them of their essential reality)!
88:22  You are not a controller and imposer over them!
88:23  But whoever turns away and covers (denies and refuses to see the reality),
88:24  Allah will subject him to the greatest suffering!
88:25  Indeed, to Us is their return,
88:26  And it is up to Us to make them live the consequences of their deeds!
