Edward Henry Palmer rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Has there come to thee the story of the overwhelming?
88:2 Faces on that day shall be humble,
88:3 labouring, toiling,-
88:4 shall broil upon a burning fire;
88:5 shall be given to drink from a boiling spring!
88:6 no food shall they have save from the foul thorn,
88:7 which shall not fatten nor avail against hunger!
88:8 Faces on that day shall be comfortable,
88:9 content with their past endeavours,-
88:10 in a lofty garden
88:11 wherein they shall hear no foolish word;
88:12 wherein is a flowing fountain;
88:13 wherein are couches raised on high,
88:14 and goblets set down,
88:15 and cushions arranged,
88:16 and carpets spread!
88:17 Do they not look then at the camel how she is created?
88:18 And at the heaven how it is reared?
88:19 And at the mountains how they are set up?
88:20 And at the earth how it is spread out?
88:21 But remind: thou art only one to remind;
88:22 thou art not in authority over them;
88:23 except such as turns his back and misbelieves,
88:24 for him will God torment with the greatest torment.
88:25 Verily, unto us is their return,
88:26 and, verily, for us is their account!
