Muhammad Taqi Usmani rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Has there come to you the description of the Overwhelming Event?
88:2 Many faces that day will be humbled,
88:3 laboring, exhausted.
88:4 They will enter into the scorching fire.
88:5 They will be made to drink water from a boiling spring.
88:6 There will be no food for them except from a thorny plant
88:7 that will neither nourish, nor satisfy hunger.
88:8 Many faces that day will be full of glamour,
88:9 well pleased with their endeavor,
88:10 in a lofty garden,
88:11 in which they will not hear any absurd talk.
88:12 In it there is a flowing spring.
88:13 In it there are elevated couches
88:14 and goblets, well placed,
88:15 and cushions, arrayed
88:16 and carpets, spread around.
88:17 So, do they not look at the camels how they are created,
88:18 and at the sky, how it is raised high,
88:19 and at the mountains, how they are installed,
88:20 and at the earth, how it is spread out?
88:21 So, (O Prophet,) keep on preaching; you are only a preacher.
88:22 You are not a taskmaster set up over them,
88:23 but whoever turns away and disbelieves,
88:24 Allah will punish him with the greatest torment.
88:25 Surely towards Us they have to return,
88:26 then it is Our job to call them to account.
