Holy Quran Verses from Yusufali's Translation

Surah Gaashiyah: The Overwhelming

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

088.001 Has the story reached thee of the overwhelming (Event)?
088.002 Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated,
088.003 Labouring (hard), weary,-
088.004 The while they enter the Blazing Fire,-
088.005 The while they are given, to drink, of a boiling hot spring,
088.006 No food will there be for them but a bitter Dhari'
088.007 Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger.
088.008 (Other) faces that Day will be joyful,
088.009 Pleased with their striving,-
088.010 In a Garden on high,
088.011 Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity:
088.012 Therein will be a bubbling spring:
088.013 Therein will be Thrones (of dignity), raised on high,
088.014 Goblets placed (ready),
088.015 And cushions set in rows,
088.016 And rich carpets (all) spread out.
088.017 Do they not look at the Camels, how they are made?-
088.018 And at the Sky, how it is raised high?-
088.019 And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?-
088.020 And at the Earth, how it is spread out?
088.021 Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish.
088.022 Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs.
088.023 But if any turn away and reject God,-
088.024 God will punish him with a mighty Punishment,
088.025 For to Us will be their return;
088.026 Then it will be for Us to call them to account.


Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
