Al-muntakhab fi tafsir al-Qur'an al-Karim rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Have you been informed of the great talk apropos the overwhelming Event?.
88:2 Some faces are then incensed with humiliation.
88:3 Reflecting the heedless life they spent uselessly, unprofitably and improvidently; and now they look faint and sick with travail and fear.
88:4 They are entering into Hell, to suffer the intense heat of the blazing Fire.
88:5 Only to be given to drink from water bubbling in agitation and issuing from a boiling hot spring.
88:6 And nothing will they feed on but poisonous, noxious, foul thorny shrubs.
88:7 Which neither nourish nor pacify their hunger pains.
88:8 There will be other faces radiant with delight.
88:9 Pleased with doing their endeavour in life lifting to Allah their inward sight,
88:10 Enjoying the exalted gardens of Bliss,
88:11 No matter of little value or insignificance will they hear therein, nor will they hear ill - tongues or what is morally evil.
88:12 Therein is water streaming forth from a delightful spring.
88:13 Therein are dignified seats covered with embroidered cloth woven in gold and ornamented with brocade,
88:14 And drinking glasses set at hand,
88:15 And cushions, ranked in rows, so bedecked and ornate.
88:16 And rich carpets all round.
88:17 Do they - the pagan Arabs - not ponder how camels* were created,
88:18 How the heavens* have been distantly elevated,
88:19 How the mountains* which stabilize the earth have been firmly erected,
88:20 And how the earth has been expanded* and prepared for life thereon !
88:21 You just continue to exhort the people, for you are here to put them in mind of Allah
88:22 And no authority have you over them.
88:23 But he whose attitude has served to disincline him from doing reverence to Allah and to turn a deaf ear to all He has ordained.
88:24 Will He requite him with a condign punishment and in Hell will he forever, be detained.
88:25 Unto Us shall be their return.
88:26 And then, their judgement will be Our concern.
