Maududi rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Has the news of the overwhelming event reached you?
88:2 Some faces that Day shall be downcast with fear,
88:3 be toiling and worn-out;
88:4 they shall burn in a Scorching Fire;
88:5 their drink shall be from a boiling spring.
88:6 They shall have no food except bitter dry thorns
88:7 that will neither nourish nor satisfy their hunger.
88:8 On that very Day some faces shall be radiant with joy,
88:9 well-pleased with their striving.
88:10 They will be in a lofty Garden
88:11 wherein they shall hear no vain talk.
88:12 In it there shall be a flowing spring,
88:13 and couches raised high,
88:14 and goblets laid out,
88:15 and cushions arrayed in rows,
88:16 and rich carpets levelled out.
88:17 Do (these unbelievers) not observe the camels: how they were created?
88:18 And the sky: how it was raised high?
88:19 And the mountains: how they were fixed?
88:20 And the earth: how it was spread out?
88:21 So render good counsel, for you are simply required to counsel,
88:22 and are not invested with the authority to compel them.
88:23 But whoever will turn away (from the Truth),
88:24 Allah will chastise him with the most terrible chastisement.
88:25 Surely to Us is their return;
88:26 and then it is for Us to call them to account.
