John Medows Rodwell rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Hath the tidings of the day that shall OVERSHADOW, reached thee
88:2 Downcast on that day shall be the countenances of some
88:3 Travailing and worn
88:4 Burnt at the scorching fire
88:5 Made to drink from a fountain fiercely boiling
88:6 No food shall they have but the fruit of Darih
88:7 Which shall not fatten, nor appease their hunger
88:8 Joyous too, on that day, the countenances of others
88:9 Well pleased with their labours past
88:10 In a lofty garden
88:11 No vain discourse shalt thou hear therein
88:12 Therein shall be a gushing fountain
88:13 Therein shall be raised couches
88:14 And goblets ready placed
88:15 And cushions laid in order
88:16 And carpets spread forth
88:17 Can they not look up to the clouds, how they are created
88:18 And to the heaven how it is upraised
88:19 And to the mountains how they are rooted
88:20 And to the earth how it is outspread
88:21 Warn thou then; for thou art a warner only
88:22 Thou hast no authority over them
88:23 But whoever shall turn back and disbelieve
88:24 God shall punish him with the greater punishment
88:25 Verily to Us shall they return
88:26 Then shall it be Our's to reckon with them
