Muhammad Mahmoud Ghali rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Has the discourse of the Enveloper come up to you?
88:2 Faces upon that day will be submissive,
88:3 Laboring, toiling,
88:4 Roasting at a Fire burning hot.
88:5 Watered from a duly (Or: hot) (boiling) spring.
88:6 No food will be brought for them except from daric, (Or: cactus thorn).
88:7 Not to plum pen and of no avail against hunger.
88:8 (Other) faces upon that day will be blissful,
88:9 With their endeavor satisfied,
88:10 In an exalted Garden,
88:11 Therein they do not hear any idle (word).
88:12 Therein is a running spring,
88:13 Therein are upraised settees,
88:14 And goblets set forth,
88:15 And cushions ranged,
88:16 And carpets outspread.
88:17 Will they then not look at the camels, how they have been created,
88:18 And at the heaven, how it has been raised up,
88:19 And at the mountains, how they have been set up,
88:20 And at the earth, how it has been encrusted? (i.e., provided with a surface or crust).
88:21 So remind them! Surely you are only a constant Reminder;
88:22 You are not in any way a dominator over them,
88:23 Except for him who has turned away and disbelieved,
88:24 Then Allah will torment him with the greatest torment.
88:25 Surely, to Us is their coming back,
88:26 Thereafter surely upon Us is their reckoning.
