Aisha Bewley rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Has news of the Overwhelmer reached you?
88:2 Some faces on that Day will be downcast,
88:3 labouring, toiling endlessly,
88:4 roasting in a red-hot Fire,
88:5 drinking from a boiling spring.
88:6 They have no food but a bitter thorny bush
88:7 which neither nourishes nor satisfies.
88:8 Some faces on that Day will be radiant,
88:9 well-pleased with their efforts
88:10 in an elevated Garden
88:11 where no prattle is ever heard.
88:12 In it is a gushing spring
88:13 and raised-up couches,
88:14 and set-out goblets,
88:15 and lined-up cushions,
88:16 and spread-out rugs.
88:17 Have they not looked at the camel — how it was created?
88:18 and at the sky — how it was raised up?
88:19 and at the mountains — how they were embedded?
88:20 and at the earth — how it was smoothed out?
88:21 So remind them! You are only a reminder.
88:22 You are not in control of them.
88:23 But as for anyone who turns away and is kafir,
88:24 Allah will punish him with the Greatest Punishment.
88:25 Certainly it is to Us they will return.
88:26 Then their Reckoning is Our concern.
