Shabbir Ahmed rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Has the news of the Dominating Event reached you?
88:2 Some faces on that Day will be downcast.
88:3 Laboring, exhausted. (They were in motion without action. They toiled without clear direction).
88:4 As they enter a sizzling Fire.
88:5 Given to drink from a spring of burning anguish.
88:6 No food for them but the bitterness of dry thorns (that they scattered to hurt others during their wayward journey through life).
88:7 Which nourishes not, nor relieves hunger.
88:8 On that Day some faces will shine with Bliss.
88:9 Happy with the fruit of their effort.
88:10 In a Garden exalted in honor.
88:11 Wherein you hear not senseless speech.
88:12 Therein is an ever-flowing Spring of Grace (76:16-17).
88:13 Therein are thrones of honor.
88:14 And shiny glasses set at hand.
88:15 And cushions set in rows.
88:16 And silken carpets spread out.
88:17 Will they not, then, look at: the water-laden clouds, how they are made? (15:22).
88:18 - And at the sky, how it is raised high? (Without visible pillars (13:2)).
88:19 - And at the mountains, how they are entrenched?
88:20 - And at the earth, how it is spread out? (That you do not even feel the sphere, nor feel its speedy rotations (31:10), (39:5), (79:28-30)).
88:21 (This is some evidence, O Messenger!) Remind them, for you are one to remind.
88:22 You are not a task master over them.
88:23 But whoever turns away and denies the Truth,
88:24 Allah will requite him with a great requital.
88:25 Behold, unto Us is their return.
88:26 Then it is for Us to call them to account.
