Qur'an

  Revealed 68th  

88:1
Has there reached you the report of the Overwhelming [event]?

88:2
[Some] faces, that Day, will be humbled,

88:3
Working [hard] and exhausted.

88:4
They will [enter to] burn in an intensely hot Fire.

88:5
They will be given drink from a boiling spring.

88:6
For them there will be no food except from a poisonous, thorny plant

88:7
Which neither nourishes nor avails against hunger.

88:8
[Other] faces, that Day, will show pleasure.

88:9
With their effort [they are] satisfied

88:10
In an elevated garden,

88:11
Wherein they will hear no unsuitable speech.

88:12
Within it is a flowing spring.
88:13
Within it are couches raised high
88:14
And cups put in place
88:15
And cushions lined up

88:16
And carpets spread around.

88:17
Then do they not look at the camels - how they are created?

88:18
And at the heaven - how it is raised?

88:19
And at the mountains - how they are fixed?

88:20
And at the earth - how it is flattened?

88:21
So remind, you are only a reminder.

88:22
You are not over them a controller.

88:23
However, he who turns away and disbelieves -

88:24
Then God will punish him with the greatest punishment.

88:25
Indeed, to Us is their return.

88:26
Then indeed, upon Us is their account.
