88: Al-Ghashiyah (الغاشية)


1:  Has not there come to you the news of the overwhelming calamity?

2:  (Some) faces on that day shall be downcast,

3:  Laboring, toiling,

4:  Entering into burning fire,

5:  Made to drink from a boiling spring.

6:  They shall have no food but of thorns,

7:  Which will neither fatten nor avail against hunger.

8:  (Other) faces on that day shall be happy,

9:  Well-pleased because of their striving,

10:  In a lofty garden,

11:  Wherein you shall not hear vain talk.

12:  Therein is a fountain flowing,

13:  Therein are thrones raised high,

14:  And drinking-cups ready placed,

15:  And cushions set in a row,

16:  And carpets spread out.

17:  Will they not then consider the camels, how they are created?

18:  And the heaven, how it is reared aloft,

19:  And the mountains, how they are firmly fixed,

20:  And the earth, how it is made a vast expanse?

21:  Therefore do remind, for you are only a reminder.

22:  You are not a watcher over them;

23:  But whoever turns back and disbelieves,

24:  Allah will chastise him with the greatest chastisement.

25:  Surely to Us is their turning back,

26:  Then surely upon Us is the taking of their account.
