88. al-Ghashiya: The Overwhelming Calamity
- Hath there come unto thee tidings of the Overwhelming ?
- On that day (many) faces will be downcast,
- Toiling, weary,
- Scorched by burning fire,
- Drinking from a boiling spring,
- No food for them save bitter thorn-fruit
- Which doth not nourish nor release from hunger.
- In that day other faces will be calm,
- Glad for their effort past,
- In a high Garden
- Where they hear no idle speech,
- Wherein is a gushing spring,
- Wherein are couches raised
- And goblets set at hand
- And cushions ranged
- And silken carpets spread.
- Will they not regard the camels, how they are created ?
- And the heaven, how it is raised ?
- And the hills, how they are set up ?
- And the earth, how it is spread ?
- Remind them, for thou art but a remembrancer,
- Thou art not at all a warder over them.
- But whoso is averse and disbelieveth,
- Allah will punish him with direst punishment.
- Lo! unto Us is their return
- And Ours their reckoning.
