Book 88


The Overwhelming Calamity

In the name of Allah,
the Beneficent,
the Merciful.

[88.1]

Has not there come to you the news of the overwhelming calamity?

[88.2]

(Some) faces on that day shall be downcast,

[88.3]

Laboring,
toiling,

[88.4]

Entering into burning fire,

[88.5]

Made to drink from a boiling spring.

[88.6]

They shall have no food but of thorns,

[88.7]

Which will neither fatten nor avail against hunger.

[88.8]

(Other) faces on that day shall be happy,

[88.9]

Well-pleased because of their striving,

[88.10]

In a lofty garden,

[88.11]

Wherein you shall not hear vain talk.

[88.12]

Therein is a fountain flowing,

[88.13]

Therein are thrones raised high,

[88.14]

And drinking-cups ready placed,

[88.15]

And cushions set in a row,

[88.16]

And carpets spread out.

[88.17]

Will they not then consider the camels,
how they are created?

[88.18]

And the heaven,
how it is reared aloft,

[88.19]

And the mountains,
how they are firmly fixed,

[88.20]

And the earth,
how it is made a vast expanse?

[88.21]

Therefore do remind,
for you are only a reminder.

[88.22]

You are not a watcher over them;

[88.23]

But whoever turns back and disbelieves,

[88.24]

Allah will chastise him with the greatest chastisement.

[88.25]

Surely to Us is their turning back,

[88.26]

Then surely upon Us is the taking of their account.
