Holy Quran 88


1HAS NEWS OF the Overpowering Event reached you?
2Many faces will be contrite on that day,
3Labouring, wearied out,
4Burning in the scorching fire,
5Given water from the boiling spring to drink.
6They will have no food except bitter thorn,
7Neither nourishing nor banishing hunger.
8Many faces will be joyous on that day,
9Well-pleased with their endeavour,
10In the high empyrean,
11Never hearing idle talk.
12There is a stream of running water in it;
13And within it are couches placed on high,
14Goblets set,
15Cushions arranged,
16And rich carpets spread.
17Do they not then ponder how the clouds were formed;
18And the heavens, how it was raised high;
19And the mountains, how they were fixed;
20And the earth, how it was spread out?
21Remind them; you are surely a reminder.
22You are not a warden over them,
23Other than him who turns his back and denies,
24In which case he will be punished by God with the severest punishment.
25To Us is surely their returning;
26Ours is surely then to reckon with them.
