    THE PALL

    Revealed before the Hijrah. This chapter has 26 verses.


    In the name of God,
    Most Gracious, Most Merciful

    88:1 Has the story reached thee of the overwhelming (Event)?
    88:2 Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated,
    88:3 Labouring (hard), weary,-
    88:4 The while they enter the Blazing Fire,-
    88:5 The while they are given, to drink, of a boiling hot spring,
    88:6 No food will there be for them but a bitter Dhari'
    88:7 Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger.
    88:8 (Other) faces that Day will be joyful,
    88:9 Pleased with their striving,-
    88:10 In a Garden on high,
    88:11 Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity:
    88:12 Therein will be a bubbling spring:
    88:13 Therein will be Thrones (of dignity), raised on high,
    88:14 Goblets placed (ready),
    88:15 And cushions set in rows,
    88:16 And rich carpets (all) spread out.
    88:17 Do they not look at the Camels, how they are made?-
    88:18 And at the Sky, how it is raised high?-
    88:19 And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?-
    88:20 And at the Earth, how it is spread out?
    88:21 Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish.
    88:22 Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs.
    88:23 But if any turn away and reject God,-
    88:24 God will punish him with a mighty Punishment,
    88:25 For to Us will be their return;
    88:26 Then it will be for Us to call them to account.
