Number of verses in sura: 26

Order of revelation: 68

 

[88:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[88:1]  Are you aware of the Overwhelming?

 

[88:2]  Faces on that day will be shamed.

 

[88:3]  Laboring and exhausted.

 

[88:4]  Suffering in a blazing Hellfire.

 

[88:5]  Drinking from a flaming spring.

 

[88:6]  They will have no food except the useless variety.

 

[88:7]  It never nourishes, nor satisfies hunger.

 

[88:8]  Other faces on that day will be full of joy.

 

[88:9]  Satisfied with their work.

 

[88:10]  In an exalted Paradise.

 

[88:11]  In it, no nonsense is heard.

 

[88:12]  In it, a spring flows.

 

[88:13]  In it, there are luxurious furnishings.

 

[88:14]  And drinks made available.

 

[88:15]  And pitchers in rows.

 

[88:16]  And carpets throughout.

 

[88:17]  Why do they not reflect on the camels and how they are created?

 

[88:18]  And the sky and how it is raised.

 

[88:19]  And the mountains and how they are constructed.

 

[88:20]  And the earth and how it is built.

 

[88:21]  You shall remind, for your mission is to deliver this reminder.

 

[88:22]  You have no power over them.

 

[88:23]  As for those who turn away and disbelieve.

 

[88:24]  GOD will commit them to the great retribution.

 

[88:25]  To us is their ultimate destiny.

 

[88:26]  Then we will call them to account.
