Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Approached thee the discourse of the Overwhelming Event?
88:2 Faces on that Day will be ones that are humbled,
88:3 ones that work and ones that are fatigued,
88:4 roasting in a hot fire.
88:5 They will be given to drink from boiling receptacles.
88:6 Is it not that there is no food for them but a thorny fruit.
88:7 It will not fatten nor will it avail hunger.
88:8 Faces on that Day will be ones that are pleasant,
88:9 ones who are well-pleased by their endeavoring
88:10 in a magnificent Garden.
88:11 They will hear no babble in it.
88:12 In it is a running spring.
88:13 In it are exalted couches
88:14 and goblets that are set down
88:15 and cushions arrayed
88:16 and rugs, ones that are dispersed.
88:17 Will they not, then, look on the camel, how it was created?
88:18 And of the heaven, how it was lifted up?
88:19 And the mountains, how they were hoisted up?
88:20 And the earth, how it was stretched out?
88:21 Then, remind for thou art only one who reminds.
88:22 Thou art not over them one who is a register of their deeds.
88:23 But whoever turned away and is one who is ungrateful,
88:24 God will punish him with the greater punishment.
88:25 Truly, to Us is their reversion.
88:26 Again, truly, on Us is their reckoning.
