هَلۡ أَتَىٰكَ حَدِيثُ ٱلۡغَٰشِيَةِ

Have you heard tell [Prophet] about the Overwhelming Event?

وُجُوهٞ يَوۡمَئِذٍ خَٰشِعَةٌ

On that Day, there will be downcast faces,

عَامِلَةٞ نَّاصِبَةٞ

toiling and weary,

تَصۡلَىٰ نَارًا حَامِيَةٗ

as they enter the blazing Fire

تُسۡقَىٰ مِنۡ عَيۡنٍ ءَانِيَةٖ

and are forced to drink from a boiling spring,

لَّيۡسَ لَهُمۡ طَعَامٌ إِلَّا مِن ضَرِيعٖ

with no food for them except bitter dry thorns

لَّا يُسۡمِنُ وَلَا يُغۡنِي مِن جُوعٖ

that neither nourish nor satisfy hunger.

وُجُوهٞ يَوۡمَئِذٖ نَّاعِمَةٞ

On that Day there will also be faces radiant with bliss,

لِّسَعۡيِهَا رَاضِيَةٞ

well pleased with their labour,

فِي جَنَّةٍ عَالِيَةٖ

in a lofty garden,

لَّا تَسۡمَعُ فِيهَا لَٰغِيَةٗ

where they will hear no idle talk,

فِيهَا عَيۡنٞ جَارِيَةٞ

with a flowing spring,

فِيهَا سُرُرٞ مَّرۡفُوعَةٞ

raised couches,

وَأَكۡوَابٞ مَّوۡضُوعَةٞ

goblets placed before them,

وَنَمَارِقُ مَصۡفُوفَةٞ

cushions set in rows,

وَزَرَابِيُّ مَبۡثُوثَةٌ

and carpets spread.

أَفَلَا يَنظُرُونَ إِلَى ٱلۡإِبِلِ كَيۡفَ خُلِقَتۡ

Do the disbelievers not see how rain clouds are formed,

وَإِلَى ٱلسَّمَآءِ كَيۡفَ رُفِعَتۡ

how the heavens are lifted,

وَإِلَى ٱلۡجِبَالِ كَيۡفَ نُصِبَتۡ

how the mountains are raised high,

وَإِلَى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ كَيۡفَ سُطِحَتۡ

how the earth is spread out?

فَذَكِّرۡ إِنَّمَآ أَنتَ مُذَكِّرٞ

So [Prophet] warn them: your only task is to give warning,

لَّسۡتَ عَلَيۡهِم بِمُصَيۡطِرٍ

you are not there to control them.

إِلَّا مَن تَوَلَّىٰ وَكَفَرَ

As for those who turn away and disbelieve,

فَيُعَذِّبُهُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلۡعَذَابَ ٱلۡأَكۡبَرَ

God will inflict the greatest torment upon them.

إِنَّ إِلَيۡنَآ إِيَابَهُمۡ

It is to Us they will return,

ثُمَّ إِنَّ عَلَيۡنَا حِسَابَهُم

and then it is for Us to call them to account.
