* | quran | * | 88. al-ghashiya. the overwhelming calamity      <   > 

1.  *     Has there come to you the narration of the overwhelming (i.e. the Day of Resurrection);
2.  *     Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated (in the Hell-fire, i.e. the faces of all disbelievers, Jews and Christians, etc.).
3.  *     Labouring (hard in the worldly life by worshipping others besides Allah), weary (in the Hereafter with humility and disgrace) .
4.  *     They will enter in the hot blazing Fire,
5.  *     They will be given to drink from a boiling spring,
6.  *     No food will there be for them but a poisonous thorny plant,
7.  *     Which will neither nourish nor avail against hunger.
8.  *     (Other) faces, that Day, will be joyful,
9.  *     Glad with their endeavour (for their good deeds which they did in this world, along with the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism).
10.  *     In a lofty Paradise.
11.  *     Where they shall neither hear harmful speech nor falsehood,
12.  *     Therein will be a running spring,
13.  *     Therein will be thrones raised high,
14.  *     And cups set at hand.
15.  *     And cushions set in rows,
16.  *     And rich carpets (all) spread out.
17.  *     Do they not look at the camels, how they are created?
18.  *     And at the heaven, how it is raised?
19.  *     And at the mountains, how they are rooted and fixed firm?
20.  *     And at the earth, how it is spread out?
21.  *     So remind them (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)), you are only a one who reminds.
22.  *     You are not a dictator over them.
23.  *     Save the one who turns away and disbelieves
24.  *     Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment.
25.  *     Verily, to Us will be their return;
26.  *     Then verily, for Us will be their reckoning.
