Hamid S. Aziz - Sura: 88. Al-Ghashiyah - The Overwhelming Event

  1. Has the story reached you, of the overwhelming?

  2. Some faces on that day shall be humbled,

  3. Toiling, weary,

  4. While they broil upon a burning Fire;

  5. While they drink from a boiling spring!

  6. No food shall they have save from the bitter Dhari,

  7. Which shall not nourish nor avail against hunger!

  8. Other faces on that day shall be joyful,

  9. Content with their past endeavours,

  10. In a lofty (sublime) Garden

  11. Wherein they shall hear no foolish word;

  12. Wherein is a flowing fountain;

  13. Wherein are Thrones (of dignity) raised on high,

  14. And goblets set down ready,

  15. And cushions arranged,

  16. And carpets spread!

  17. Do they not look then at the camel, how she is created?

  18. And at the heaven how it is raised high?

  19. And at the mountains how they are set firm?

  20. And at the earth how it is spread out?

  21. Therefore, remind them: for you are only one to remind;

  22. you are not in authority over them;

  23. But such as turns his back and disbelieves,

  24. Him will Allah punish with the greatest torment.

  25. Verily, unto us is their return,

  26. And, verily, for Us is their accounting!
