Did you notice?
88:1  Have you heard about the Overwhelming Event
88:2  Faces that Day will be down
88:3  Wrought-up, weary
88:4  Burning in Fire intensely hot
88:5  Made to drink from a boiling hot spring
88:6  No food for them but of thorns
88:7  That neither nourishes nor satisfies hunger
88:8  Faces that Day will be blissful
88:9  Pleased with their efforts
88:10  In lofty Garden
88:11  Wherein no vain talk will you hear
88:12  Therein a fountain flowing
88:13  Therein thrones raised high
88:14  And cups placed conveniently
88:15  And cushions in rows
88:16  And carpets spread out
88:17  Do they not see how the cloud is created?
88:18  And the sky, how it is raised high
88:19  And the mountains, how they are rooted
88:20  And the earth, how its surface is made ?
88:21  So recite the divine Verses to the people at large. Your only responsibility is to recite
88:22  You have no control over them
88:23  But he who turns back and suppresses the Truth
88:24  Allah will give him the greatest punishment
88:25  To Us indeed is their return
88:26  Then it is for Us to call them to account
