1 . Has the story reached thee of the overwhelming (Event)?
2 . Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated,
3 . Labouring (hard), weary,-
4 . The while they enter the Blazing Fire,-
5 . The while they are given, to drink, of a boiling hot spring,
6 . No food will there be for them but a bitter Dhari´
7 . Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger.
8 . (Other) faces that Day will be joyful,
9 . Pleased with their striving,-
10 . In a Garden on high,
11 . Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity:
12 . Therein will be a bubbling spring:
13 . Therein will be Thrones (of dignity), raised on high,
14 . Goblets placed (ready),
15 . And cushions set in rows,
16 . And rich carpets (all) spread out.
17 . Do they not look at the Camels, how they are made?-
18 . And at the Sky, how it is raised high?-
19 . And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?-
20 . And at the Earth, how it is spread out?
21 . Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish.
22 . Thou art not one to manage (men´s) affairs.
23 . But if any turn away and reject Allah,-
24 . Allah will punish him with a mighty Punishment,
25 . For to Us will be their return;
26 . Then it will be for Us to call them to account.
