Did you notice?
88:1  Did you receive the account of the Enveloper
88:2  Some faces on that day will be humbled
88:3  wrought-up and weary
88:4  they will enter a scorching fire
88:5  and made to drink from a boiling spring
88:6  They will have no food except cactus
88:7  neither nourishing, nor availing against hunger
88:8  Some faces on that day will be joyous
88:9  pleased with their endeavour
88:10  in a lofty paradise
88:11  wherein they will not hear any vain talk
88:12  In it there is a flowing sprin
88:13  and in it there are raised couches
88:14  and goblets set
88:15  and cushions laid out in an array
88:16  and carpets spread out
88:17  Do they not observe the camel, [to see] how she has been created
88:18  and the sky, how it has been raised
88:19  and the mountains, how they have been set
88:20  and the earth, how it has been surfaced
88:21  So admonish—for you are only an admonisher
88:22  and not a taskmaster over them&mdash
88:23  except him who turns back and disbelieves
88:24  Him Allah will punish with the greatest punishment
88:25  Indeed to Us will be their return
88:26  Then, indeed, their reckoning will lie with Us
