Did you notice?
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 thorn
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 Garde
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
