88:1  Have you ever heard about an awesome event which man is going to witness
88:2  In that day, some faces will be downward of shame
88:3  Looking exhausted
88:4  As they enter into the Hell Fire
88:5  Imagine what a torture it is to drink from boiling water of Hell
88:6  And have nothing to eat but a bitter fruit full of thorns
88:7  Which after all will not reduce the hunger as it is not nutritious
88:8  On the other hand, on that day there will be faces full of joy
88:9  These are those who are happy with their accomplishment
88:10  And will be led to the gardens of Paradise
88:11  Where they will hear no unpleasant words
88:12  And enjoy the springs of Paradise
88:13  While relaxing on high thrones
88:14  They will drink delightful drinks offered to them in the cups
88:15  Relaxed in cushions put next to each other
88:16  And the silk carpet spread for them in the gardens
88:17  Don’t you contemplate on God’s creations around you such as the camel [that your livelihood in the desert depends upon]
88:18  And the (majestic) sky above you
88:19  And the firm mountains reaching the sky
88:20  And the earth itself which is made spread for you
88:21  O’ Mohammad, make them open their eyes as your only job is to be a reminder
88:22  Mohammad, bear in mind that you are not in charge of them [and your job is only to remind them.]
88:23  Let them know that whoever turns away from your admonitions
88:24  God will impose a terrible punishment upon them
88:25  As they will eventually have to return back and meet their Lord
88:26  On that day, they have to answer to what they have been doing
