Dr. Mohammad Tahir-ul-Qadri rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Has the news of the Calamity overwhelming (everything) reached you?
88:2 Many faces on that Day will be humiliated and degraded,
88:3 (Forgetting Allah,) toiling (for worldly gains), sustaining (strenuous) rigours (for a fleeting luxury),
88:4 Will plunge into the Blazing Fire.
88:5 (They will be) offered to drink (water) from a boiling spring.
88:6 They will have no food except thorny and dry venomous herbage.
88:7 (This food) will neither nourish nor gratify hunger.
88:8 (On the contrary) that Day a number of faces will be (pleasing to the eye,) glowing with joy and freshness,
88:9 Delighted and rejoicing over their (righteous) travail,
88:10 (Abiding) in a magnificent Paradise,
88:11 Where they will not hear anything absurd (as the disbelievers used to say to them in the world).
88:12 In it there will be flowing springs,
88:13 And raised-up couches (laid),
88:14 And goblets (decently) set in place,
88:15 And silken cushions orderly lined up,
88:16 And soft and refined carpets and rugs (richly) spread.
88:17 (The disbelievers wonder how all that would be arranged in Paradise. So) do they not see how the camel has been created (in an unusual form)?
88:18 And (do they not observe) how the heaven is raised so high (with its vast expanse)?
88:19 And (do they not see) how the mountains have been created (raised out of the earth)?
88:20 (Nor do they consider) how the earth has been spread out (besides its round shape)?
88:21 So, continuously admonish them, for you are but an admonisher,
88:22 You are not imposed upon them (as) an oppressor and persecutor.
88:23 But anyone who turns away and becomes a disbeliever,
88:24 Allah will torment him with the greatest punishment.
88:25 Indeed, it is to Us that they will return (in the end);
88:26 Then, surely, it is Our concern to call them to account.
