Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)
26 verses, revealed in Mecca after Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhaareyaat) before The Cave (Al-Kahf)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
HAS THERE COME unto thee the tiding of the Overshadowing Event? (1) [Some] faces, that Day, will be humbled, (2) Labouring (hard), weary,- (3) They shall roast into the scalding Fire, (4) They will be given drink from a boiling spring. (5) They shall have no food except bitter dry thorns (6) that will neither nourish nor satisfy their hunger. (7) [Other] faces, that Day, will show pleasure. (8) Glad for their effort past, (9) They will be in a lofty Garden (10) Where they hear no idle speech, (11) Countless springs will flow therein, (12) therein uplifted couches (13) And drinking-cups ready placed, (14) And cushions set in rows, (15) and rich carpets levelled out. (16) What, do they not reflect upon how the camel was created? (17) And at the sky - how it is raised? (18) and how the mountains were firmly fixed? (19) And at the earth, how it is spread out? (20) Remind them, for thou art but a remembrancer, (21) You do not have full control over them. (22) Other than him who turns his back and denies, (23) God shall chastise him with the greatest chastisement. (24) Verily unto Us is their return. (25) and then it is for Us to call them to account. (26)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
