88 THE ENVELOPER (1 – 22)

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

Hast thou received the story of the Enveloper?

Faces on that day humbled, labouring, toilworn, roasting at a scorching fire, 5watered at a boiling fountain, no food for them but cactus thorn unfattening, unappeasing hunger.

Faces on that day jocund, with their striving well-pleased, 10in a sublime Garden, hearing there no babble; therein a running fountain, therein uplifted couches and goblets set forth 15and cushions arrayed and carpets outspread.

What, do they not consider how the camel was created, how heaven was lifted up, how the mountains were hoisted, 20how the earth was outstretched? Then remind them! Thou art only a reminder; thou art not charged to oversee them.
