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, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Hath there come unto thee tidings of the Overwhelming? 1 On that day the faces of some people will be humbly cast down, 2 Laboring, toiling, 3 roasting at a scorching fire, 4 Made to drink from a boiling spring. 5 For them there will be no food except from a poisonous, thorny plant 6 which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger. 7 Some faces on that Day will be radiant, 8 Well-pleased with their endeavour, 9 in a Garden on high, 10 Wherein you shall not hear vain talk. 11 with a flowing spring, 12 and couches raised high, 13 and goblets laid out, 14 well-placed cushions, 15 And rich carpets (all) spread out. 16 Have they not looked at how the camel is created, 17 And the heaven how it has been raised? 18 And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?- 19 And the earth: how it was spread out? 20 (Muhammad), preach; you are only a preacher. 21 You do not have full control over them. 22 However, as for him who turns away, being bent on denying the truth, 23 Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment. 24 For to Us will be their return; 25 Ours is surely then to reckon with them. 26
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
