هَلْ أَتَاكَ حَدِيثُ الْغَاشِيَةِ
HAS THERE COME unto thee the tiding of the Overshadowing Event? (1)
وُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ خَاشِعَةٌ
Some faces will on that Day be downcast, (2)
عَامِلَةٌ نَاصِبَةٌ
toiling [under burdens of sin], worn out [by fear], (3)
تَصْلَىٰ نَارًا حَامِيَةً
about to enter a glowing fire, (4)
تُسْقَىٰ مِنْ عَيْنٍ آنِيَةٍ
given to drink from a boiling spring. (5)
لَيْسَ لَهُمْ طَعَامٌ إِلَّا مِنْ ضَرِيعٍ
No food for them save the bitterness of dry thorns, (6)
لَا يُسْمِنُ وَلَا يُغْنِي مِنْ جُوعٍ
which gives no strength and neither stills hunger. (7)
وُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ نَاعِمَةٌ
[And] some faces will on that Day shine with bliss, (8)
لِسَعْيِهَا رَاضِيَةٌ
well-pleased with [the fruit of] their striving, (9)
فِي جَنَّةٍ عَالِيَةٍ
in a garden sublime, (10)
