Al-Ghashiya - The Overwhelming, The Pall - Meccan

  1. In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  2. 88:1 Has the story reached thee of the overwhelming (Event)?

  3. 88:2 Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated,

  4. 88:3 Labouring (hard), weary,-

  5. 88:4 The while they enter the Blazing Fire,-

  6. 88:5 The while they are given, to drink, of a boiling hot spring,

  7. 88:6 No food will there be for them but a bitter Dhari'

  8. 88:7 Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger.

  9. 88:8 (Other) faces that Day will be joyful,

  10. 88:9 Pleased with their striving,-

  11. 88:10 In a Garden on high,

  12. 88:11 Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity:

  13. 88:12 Therein will be a bubbling spring:

  14. 88:13 Therein will be Thrones (of dignity), raised on high,

  15. 88:14 Goblets placed (ready),

  16. 88:15 And cushions set in rows,

  17. 88:16 And rich carpets (all) spread out.

  18. 88:17 Do they not look at the Camels, how they are made?-

  19. 88:18 And at the Sky, how it is raised high?-

  20. 88:19 And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?-

  21. 88:20 And at the Earth, how it is spread out?

  22. 88:21 Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish.

  23. 88:22 Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs.

  24. 88:23 But if any turn away and reject Allah,-

  25. 88:24 Allah will punish him with a mighty Punishment,

  26. 88:25 For to Us will be their return;

  27. 88:26 Then it will be for Us to call them to account.
