Shakir rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Has not there come to you the news of the overwhelming calamity?
88:2 (Some) faces on that day shall be downcast,
88:3 Laboring, toiling,
88:4 Entering into burning fire,
88:5 Made to drink from a boiling spring.
88:6 They shall have no food but of thorns,
88:7 Which will neither fatten nor avail against hunger.
88:8 (Other) faces on that day shall be happy,
88:9 Well-pleased because of their striving,
88:10 In a lofty garden,
88:11 Wherein you shall not hear vain talk.
88:12 Therein is a fountain flowing,
88:13 Therein are thrones raised high,
88:14 And drinking-cups ready placed,
88:15 And cushions set in a row,
88:16 And carpets spread out.
88:17 Will they not then consider the camels, how they are created?
88:18 And the heaven, how it is reared aloft,
88:19 And the mountains, how they are firmly fixed,
88:20 And the earth, how it is made a vast expanse?
88:21 Therefore do remind, for you are only a reminder.
88:22 You are not a watcher over them;
88:23 But whoever turns back and disbelieves,
88:24 Allah will chastise him with the greatest chastisement.
88:25 Surely to Us is their turning back,
88:26 Then surely upon Us is the taking of their account.
