[88.1] Hath there come unto
thee tidings of the Overwhelming ?
[88.2] On that day (many) faces will be downcast,
[88.3] Toiling, weary,
[88.4] Scorched by burning fire,
[88.5] Drinking from a boiling spring,
[88.6] No food for them save bitter thorn-fruit
[88.7] Which doth not nourish nor release from hunger.
[88.8] In that day other faces will be calm,
[88.9] Glad for their effort past,
[88.10] In a high Garden
[88.11] Where they hear no idle speech,
[88.12] Wherein is a gushing spring,
[88.13] Wherein are couches raised
[88.14] And goblets set at hand
[88.15] And cushions ranged
[88.16] And silken carpets spread.
[88.17] Will they not regard the camels, how they are created ?
[88.18] And the heaven, how it is raised ?
[88.19] And the hills, how they are set up ?
[88.20] And the earth, how it is spread ?
[88.21] Remind them, for thou art but a remembrancer,
[88.22] Thou art not at all a warder over them.
[88.23] But whoso is averse and disbelieveth,
[88.24] Allah will punish him with direst punishment.
[88.25] Lo! unto Us is their return
[88.26] And Ours their reckoning.
