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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Has not there come to you the news of the overwhelming calamity? (1) Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated (in the Hell-fire, i.e. the faces of all disbelievers, Jews and Christians, etc.). (2) labouring, weary, (3) they shall enter a burning Fire (4) The while they are given, to drink, of a boiling hot spring, (5) No food for them save the bitterness of dry thorns, (6) Which will neither nourish nor avail against hunger. (7) Many faces will be joyous on that day, (8) and pleased with the result of their deeds in the past. (9) They will be in a lofty Garden (10) Wherein you shall not hear vain talk. (11) Therein will be a flowing spring, (12) therein uplifted couches (13) Goblets placed (ready), (14) and cushions arrayed in rows, (15) And carpets ready spread, (16) What, do they not consider how the camel was created, (17) And the heavens, how it was raised high; (18) how the mountains are set firm, (19) And at the earth - how it is spread out? (20) Therefore advise; indeed you are a proclaimer of advice. (The Holy Prophet is a Remembrance from Allah.) (21) you are not their keeper. (22) But whoso is averse and disbelieveth, (23) him will God cause to suffer the greatest suffering [in the life to come]: (24) Indeed, to Us is their return. (25) Then indeed, upon Us is their account. (26)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
