88:1  Has there come to you the chronicle of the overwhelming event?
88:2  Some faces, on that day, will be downcast,
88:3  Working extremely hard and exhausted,
88:4  Tasting the blazing fire,
88:5  Watered from a boiling spring,
88:6  No food for them but bitter thorny plant,
88:7  Neither nourishes nor satisfies the hunger cravings.
88:8  Other faces, on that day, will be graceful,
88:9  Fully content with their endeavor,
88:10  In a high garden
88:11  Where they will hear no evil vain talk.
88:12  In it, there are a running fountain,
88:13  Uplifted couches,
88:14  Goblets put in their place,
88:15  Cushions set in rows,
88:16  And fine carpets spread out.
88:17  Do they not contemplate how the camel was created,
88:18  How the sky was lifted up,
88:19  How the mountains were firmly fixed,
88:20  And how the earth was outstretched?
88:21  Then remind them, (O’ Muhammad)! You are only a reminder.
88:22  You have no control over them.
88:23  Consequently, the one who takes no heed and acts impiously;
88:24  Allâh will punish him with the greatest punishment.
88:25  Indeed, unto Us will be their return.
88:26  Then verily, for Us will be their reckoning.
