Malik - Sura: 88. Al-Ghashiyah - The Overwhelming Event

  1. Has the news of the over shadowing event of resurrection reached you?

  2. On that Day some faces shall be downcast,

  3. in hard labor, worn out,

  4. scorching in the blazing fire,

  5. given to drink from a boiling fountain.

  6. They shall have no food except bitter thorny fruit,

  7. which will neither provide nourishment nor satisfy hunger.

  8. While some faces on that Day shall be radiant,

  9. well pleased with their endeavors,

  10. in a lofty garden.

  11. Therein they shall hear no loose talk.

  12. Therein they shall have running springs.

  13. Therein they shall be reclining on raised soft couches,

  14. with goblets placed before them;

  15. silky cushions ranged in order

  16. and fine carpets richly spread.

  17. Do they not look at the camels, how they were created?

  18. The heaven, how it was raised high?

  19. The mountains, how they were firmly set?

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

  21. So keep on giving admonition, for you are an admonisher

  22. not a taskmaster over them.

  23. As for those who turn their backs and disbelieve,

  24. Allah will punish them with the mighty punishment.

  25. Surely to Us is their return,

  26. then surely it is for Us to take their account.
