N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 HAVE YOU heard of the Event that shall overwhelm all?
88:2 On that day there shall be downcast faces,
88:3 haggard and worn out,
88:4 burnt by a scorching fire,
88:5 drinking from a seething fountain.
88:6 Their only food shall be bitter thorns,
88:7 which will neither sustain them nor satisfy their hunger.
88:8 On that day there shall be radiant faces,
88:9 well-pleased with their labours,
88:10 in a lofty Garden.
88:11 Therein shall they hear no idle talk;
88:12 therein shall be a gushing fountain;
88:13 therein shall be raised soft couches
88:14 with goblets placed before them;
88:15 silken cushions ranged in order
88:16 and carpets richly spread.
88:17 Do they never reflect on the camels, how they were created?
88:18 On the heaven, how it was raised on high?
88:19 On the mountains, how they were set down?
88:20 On the earth, how it was flattened?
88:21 Therefore admonish; Your duty is only to admonish:
88:22 you are not their keeper.
88:23 As for those that turn their backs and disbelieve,
88:24 God will torment them with the supreme torment.
88:25 To Us shall they return,
88:26 and then We will Ourselves bring them to account.
