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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Has the story reached thee of the overwhelming (Event)? (1) On that day the faces of some people will be humbly cast down, (2) Labouring (hard in the worldly life by worshipping others besides Allah), weary (in the Hereafter with humility and disgrace). (3) roasting at a scorching Fire (4) Drinking from a boiling spring, (5) They shall have no food except bitter dry thorns (6) Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger. (7) Many faces will be joyous on that day, (8) Glad with their endeavour (for their good deeds which they did in this world, along with the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism). (9) In the high empyrean, (10) They shall hear therein no vain discourse; (11) Therein shall be a spring running! (12) Therein will be thrones raised high, (13) And cups put in place (14) And cushions ranged (15) And silken carpets spread. (16) Do they never reflect on the camels and how they were created, (17) And at the heaven, how it is raised? (18) And at the mountains, how they are rooted and fixed firm? (19) And the earth: how it was spread out? (20) Therefore remind, you are only a Reminder. (21) Thou art not at all a warder over them. (22) But he who turns his back, and disbelieves, (23) will be punished by God with the greatest punishment. (24) Indeed, to Us is their return. (25) Then surely upon Us is the taking of their account. (26)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
