Ahmed Ali rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 HAS NEWS OF the Overpowering Event reached you?
88:2 Many faces will be contrite on that day,
88:3 Labouring, wearied out,
88:4 Burning in the scorching fire,
88:5 Given water from the boiling spring to drink.
88:6 They will have no food except bitter thorn,
88:7 Neither nourishing nor banishing hunger.
88:8 Many faces will be joyous on that day,
88:9 Well-pleased with their endeavour,
88:10 In the high empyrean,
88:11 Never hearing idle talk.
88:12 There is a stream of running water in it;
88:13 And within it are couches placed on high,
88:14 Goblets set,
88:15 Cushions arranged,
88:16 And rich carpets spread.
88:17 Do they not then ponder how the clouds were formed;
88:18 And the heavens, 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 Remind them; you are surely a reminder.
88:22 You are not a warden over them,
88:23 Other than him who turns his back and denies,
88:24 In which case he will be punished by God with the severest punishment.
88:25 To Us is surely their returning;
88:26 Ours is surely then to reckon with them.
