88:1  Have you heard about the Overwhelming Event?
88:2  Some faces, that Day, will be humbled,
88:3  working hard and exhausted.
88:4  They will kindle an intensely hot Fire
88:5  and will be given drinks from a boiling spring.
88:6  They will have no food except from a thorny plant,
88:7  that neither nourishes nor satisfies hunger.
88:8  Other faces, that day, will be peaceful.
88:9  Well pleased with their endeavor,
88:10  in an elevated Garden,
88:11  where they will hear no idle talk.
88:12  A flowing spring runs through it.
88:13  Raised couches are placed there,
88:14  cups put in place
88:15  cushions lined up
88:16  and carpets spread around.
88:17  Don't they look at how the camels are created,
88:18  at how the sky is raised
88:19  at how the mountains are erected
88:20  and at how the earth is spread out?
88:21  So remind them, for you are but a reminder.
88:22  You are not in control of them.
88:23  But whoever turns away and rejects the truth,
88:24  God will inflict him with the greatest punishment.
88:25  To Us is their return.
88:26  Then it is for Us to call them to account.
