Juz 30
Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)
26 verses, revealed in Mecca after Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhaareyaat) before The Cave (Al-Kahf)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
Certainly the news of the calamity that will overwhelm has come to you! (1) Faces on that Day shall be downcast, (2) Travailing, worn. (3) they shall burn in a Scorching Fire; (4) Made to drink from a boiling spring. (5) They will have no food except bitter thorn, (6) which gives no strength and neither stills hunger. (7) On that very Day some faces shall be radiant with joy, (8) and pleased with the result of their deeds in the past. (9) In a lofty Paradise. (10) Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity: (11) Countless springs will flow therein, (12) Therein will be thrones raised high, (13) And cups set at hand. (14) And cushions set in rows, (15) and carpets spread out. (16) Do they not look at the camels, how they are created? (17) And the heaven how it has been raised? (18) And the mountains: how they were fixed? (19) And at the earth, how it is outspread? (20) Then remind them! Thou art only a reminder; (21) You are not at all a guardian over them. (22) But whoever turns back and denies the truth, (23) In which case he will be punished by God with the severest punishment. (24) Surely to Us is their return; (25) and verily, It is for Us to call them to account. (26)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
