Did you notice?
88:1  Have the details of the happenings on the (day of the final) covering come to you?
88:2  Faces on that day will be downcast,
88:3  labouring, weary,
88:4  entering very hot fire,
88:5  being made to drink from boiling spring.
88:6  There will be no food for them except that from the thorn tree.
88:7  It will neither be nourishable by them nor will it make them free from hunger.
88:8  (Other) faces that day will be happy,
88:9  pleased on account of the effort they had put in earlier.
88:10  (They will be) in a high garden,
88:11  therein you will not hear useless talk,
88:12  therein is a flowing spring,
88:13  therein are raised couches
88:14  and drinking cups placed ready (for use)
88:15  and cushions set in rows,
88:16  and carpets spread.
88:17  So do they not see towards the camel how it is created,
88:18  and towards the sky how it is raised,
88:19  and towards the mountains how they are rooted
88:20  and towards the earth how it is spread?
88:21  So remind, you are only to remind.
88:22  You are not in authority over them.
88:23  But one who turns away and does not believe,
88:24  so he will be punished by Allah with a great punishment.
88:25  Their return is certainly towards Us,
88:26  then certainly, it is on Us to take their account.
