Surah 88. Surah al Ghashiah

Surah 88. Surah al Ghasihiya (The Overwhelming Event)

Bismillah ir Rahman ir Raheem
In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  1. Has there come to you the narration of the Overwhelming Event?
  2. Some faces that Day will be despondent–
  3. In hard labor, weary;
  4. They shall enter the blazing Fire,
  5. And made to drink from a boiling spring.
  6. There shall be nothing for them to eat except thorny bushes–
  7. Neither nourishing nor abating hunger.
  8. Some faces that day will be joyful,
  9. Pleased with what they had earned,
  10. In Gardens high,
  11. No vain talk shall they hear therein;
  12. In it there is a flowing spring;
  13. In it there are thrones high,
  14. And goblets selected,
  15. And cushions arranged,
  16. And carpets rolled out.
  17. Do they not look at a camel (and ponder) how it is created?
  18. And at the sky, how it is raised high?
  19. And at the mountains, how they are fixed firmly?
  20. And at the earth, how it is spread out?
  21. Therefore, remind them; you are indeed not but one to remind-
  22. You are not one to coerce them;
  23. Except that one who turns away and disbelieves,
  24. For such, there is an overbearing punishment from Allah.
  25. Indeed, towards Us is their return;
  26. Indeed, upon them is their reckoning!
