M. M. Pickthall rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Hath there come unto thee tidings of the Overwhelming?
88:2 On that day (many) faces will be downcast,
88:3 Toiling, weary,
88:4 Scorched by burning fire,
88:5 Drinking from a boiling spring,
88:6 No food for them save bitter thorn-fruit
88:7 Which doth not nourish nor release from hunger.
88:8 In that day other faces will be calm,
88:9 Glad for their effort past,
88:10 In a high Garden
88:11 Where they hear no idle speech,
88:12 Wherein is a gushing spring,
88:13 Wherein are couches raised
88:14 And goblets set at hand
88:15 And cushions ranged
88:16 And silken carpets spread.
88:17 Will they not regard the camels, how they are created?
88:18 And the heaven, how it is raised?
88:19 And the hills, how they are set up?
88:20 And the earth, how it is spread?
88:21 Remind them, for thou art but a remembrancer,
88:22 Thou art not at all a warder over them.
88:23 But whoso is averse and disbelieveth,
88:24 Allah will punish him with direst punishment.
88:25 Lo! unto Us is their return
88:26 And Ours their reckoning.
