88:1  Approached thee the discourse of the Overwhelming Event?
88:2  Faces on that Day will be ones that are humbled,
88:3  ones that work and ones that are fatigued,
88:4  roasting in a hot fire.
88:5  They will be given to drink from boiling receptacles.
88:6  Is it not that there is no food for them but a thorny fruit.
88:7  It will not fatten nor will it avail hunger.
88:8  Faces on that Day will be ones that are pleasant,
88:9  ones who are well-pleased by their endeavoring
88:10  in a magnificent Garden.
88:11  They will hear no babble in it.
88:12  In it is a running spring.
88:13  In it are exalted couches
88:14  and goblets that are set down
88:15  and cushions arrayed
88:16  and rugs, ones that are dispersed.
88:17  Will they not, then, look on the camel, how it was created?
88:18  And of the heaven, how it was lifted up?
88:19  And the mountains, how they were hoisted up?
88:20  And the earth, how it was stretched out?
88:21  Then, remind for thou art only one who reminds.
88:22  Thou art not over them one who is a register of their deeds.
88:23  But whoever turned away and is one who is ungrateful,
88:24  God will punish him with the greater punishment.
88:25  Truly, to Us is their reversion.
88:26  Again, truly, on Us is their reckoning.
