Chapter 88:
Al-Ghashiyah — The Overwhelming Event:

Revealed at Makkah: 26 verses

English Translation of the Holy Quran by Maulana Muhammad Ali


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

88:1 Has there come to thee the news of the Overwhelming Event?

88:2 Faces on that day will be downcast,

88:3 Labouring, toiling,

88:4 Entering burning Fire,

88:5 Made to drink from a boiling spring.

88:6 They will have no food but of thorns,

88:7 Neither nourishing nor satisfying hunger.

88:8 Faces on that day will be happy,

88:9 Glad for their striving,

88:10 In a lofty Garden,

88:11 Wherein thou wilt hear no vain talk.

88:12 Therein is a fountain flowing.

88:13 Therein are thrones raised high,

88:14 And drinking-cups ready placed,

88:15 And cushions set in rows,

88:16 And carpets spread out.

88:17 See they not the clouds, how they are created?

88:18 And the heaven, how it is raised high?

88:19 And the mountains, how they are fixed?

88:20 And the earth, how it is spread out?

88:21 So remind. Thou art only one to remind.

88:22 Thou art not a warder over them —

88:23 But whoever turns back and disbelieves,

88:24 Allah will chastise him with the greatest chastisement.

88:25 Surely to Us is their return.

88:26 Then it is for Us to call them to account.
