;

1 . Hath there come unto thee tidings of the Overwhelming?

2 . On that day (many) faces will be downcast,

3 . Toiling, weary,

4 . Scorched by burning fire,

5 . Drinking from a boiling spring,

6 . No food for them save bitter thorn-fruit

7 . Which doth not nourish nor release from hunger.

8 . In that day other faces will be calm,

9 . Glad for their effort past,

10 . In a high Garden

11 . Where they hear no idle speech,

12 . Wherein is a gushing spring,

13 . Wherein are couches raised

14 . And goblets set at hand

15 . And cushions ranged

16 . And silken carpets spread.

17 . Will they not regard the camels, how they are created?

18 . And the heaven, how it is raised?

19 . And the hills, how they are set up?

20 . And the earth, how it is spread?

21 . Remind them, for thou art but a remembrancer,

22 . Thou art not at all a warder over them.

23 . But whoso is averse and disbelieveth,

24 . Allah will punish him with direst punishment.

25 . Lo! unto Us is their return

26 . And Ours their reckoning.
