Muhammad Asad rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 HAS THERE COME unto thee the tiding of the Overshadowing Event?'
88:2 Some faces will on that Day be downcast,
88:3 toiling [under burdens of sin], worn out [by fear],
88:4 about to enter a glowing fire,
88:5 given to drink from a boiling spring.
88:6 No food for them save the bitterness of dry thorns,
88:7 which gives no strength and neither stills hunger.
88:8 [And] some faces will on that Day shine with bliss,
88:9 well-pleased with [the fruit of] their striving,
88:10 in a garden sublime,
88:11 wherein thou wilt hear no empty talk.
88:12 Countless springs will flow therein,
88:13 [and] there will be thrones [of happiness] raised high,
88:14 and goblets placed ready,
88:15 and cushions ranged,
88:16 and carpets spread out…
88:17 DO, THEN, they [who deny resurrection] never gaze at the clouds pregnant with water, [and observe] how they are created?
88:18 And at the sky, how it is raised aloft?
88:19 And at the mountains, how firmly they are reared?
88:20 And at the earth, how it is spread out?
88:21 And so, [O Prophet,] exhort them; thy task is only to exhort:
88:22 thou canst not compel them [to believe].
88:23 However, as for him who turns away, being bent on denying the truth,
88:24 him will God cause to suffer the greatest suffering [in the life to come]:
88:25 for behold, unto Us will be their return,
88:26 and verily, It is for Us to call them to account.
