Surah 88

Al Ghâshiyah
Surah 88. The Overwhelming, The Pall

 

88:1 Has the story reached thee of the overwhelming (Event)?
Hal ataka hadeethu alghashiyati
88:2 Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated,
Wujoohun yawma-ithin khashiAAatun
88:3 Labouring (hard), weary,-
AAamilatun nasibatun
88:4 The while they enter the Blazing Fire,-
Tasla naran hamiyatan
88:5 The while they are given, to drink, of a boiling hot spring,
Tusqa min AAaynin aniyatin
88:6 No food will there be for them but a bitter Dhari’
Laysa lahum taAAamun illamin dareeAAin
88:7 Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger.
La yusminu wala yughnee minjooAAin
88:8 (Other) faces that Day will be joyful,
Wujoohun yawma-ithin naAAimatun
88:9 Pleased with their striving,-
LisaAAyiha radiyatun
88:10 In a Garden on high,
Fee jannatin AAaliyatin
88:11 Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity:
La tasmaAAu feeha laghiyatan
88:12 Therein will be a bubbling spring:
Feeha AAaynun jariyatun
88:13 Therein will be Thrones (of dignity), raised on high,
Feeha sururun marfooAAatun
88:14 Goblets placed (ready),
Waakwabun mawdooAAatun
88:15 And cushions set in rows,
Wanamariqu masfoofatun
88:16 And rich carpets (all) spread out.
Wazarabiyyu mabthoothatun
88:17 Do they not look at the Camels, how they are made?-
Afala yanthuroona ilaal-ibili kayfa khuliqat
88:18 And at the Sky, how it is raised high?-
Wa-ila alssama-i kayfarufiAAat
88:19 And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?-
Wa-ila aljibali kayfa nusibat
88:20 And at the Earth, how it is spread out?
Wa-ila al-ardi kayfa sutihat
88:21 Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish.
Fathakkir innama anta muthakkirun
88:22 Thou art not one to manage (men’s) affairs.
Lasta AAalayhim bimusaytirin
88:23 But if any turn away and reject Allah,-
Illa man tawalla wakafara
88:24 Allah will punish him with a mighty Punishment,
FayuAAaththibuhu Allahu alAAathabaal-akbara
88:25 For to Us will be their return;
Inna ilayna iyabahum
88:26 Then it will be for Us to call them to account.
Thumma inna AAalayna hisabahum
