N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 HAVE YOU heard of the Event that shall overwhelm all
88:2 On that day there shall be downcast faces
88:3 haggard and worn out
88:4 burnt by a scorching fire
88:5 drinking from a seething fountain
88:6 Their only food shall be bitter thorns
88:7 which will neither sustain them nor satisfy their hunger
88:8 On that day there shall be radiant faces
88:9 well-pleased with their labours
88:10 in a lofty Garden
88:11 Therein shall they hear no idle talk
88:12 therein shall be a gushing fountain
88:13 therein shall be raised soft couche
88:14 with goblets placed before them
88:15 silken cushions ranged in orde
88:16 and carpets richly spread
88:17 Do they never reflect on the camels, how they were created
88:18 On the heaven, how it was raised on high
88:19 On the mountains, how they were set down
88:20 On the earth, how it was flattened
88:21 Therefore admonish; Your duty is only to admonish
88:22 you are not their keeper
88:23 As for those that turn their backs and disbelieve
88:24 God will torment them with the supreme torment
88:25 To Us shall they return
88:26 and then We will Ourselves bring them to account
