Jump to: navigation, search

(88:0) In the name of God, the Gracious, the Compassionate.

(88:1) Has the news come to you of the Overwhelming?

(88:2) Faces on that day will be desolate.

(88:3) Laboring and weary.

(88:4) They will enter a blazing fire.

(88:5) Be given to drink from a boiling spring.

(88:6) They will have no food except from a thorny plant.

(88:7) It does not nourish nor avail against hunger.

(88:8) Faces on that day are joyful.

(88:9) For their pursuit they are content.

(88:10) In a high paradise.

(88:11) You will not hear in it any nonsense.

(88:12) In it is a running spring.

(88:13) In it are raised beds.

(88:14) Cups that are set.

(88:15) Cushions arranged in rows.

(88:16) Rich carpets spread out.

(88:17) Will they not look at the camels/clouds, how are they created?

(88:18) To the sky, how is it raised?

(88:19) To the mountains, how was it set?

(88:20) To the land, how was it flattened?

(88:21) So remind, for you are but a reminder.

(88:22) You are not a mythmaker for them!

(88:23) Except for he who turns away and rejects.

(88:24) Then God will punish him with the great retribution.

(88:25) Indeed, to Us is their return.

(88:26) Then to Us is their judgment.
