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 Gracious, Most Merciful
Has the news of the overwhelming event reached you? (1) Some faces that Day shall be downcast with fear, (2) Toiling, weary, (3) roasting at a scorching Fire (4) and will be made to drink from a fiercely boiling spring. (5) no food for them except thorny plants (6) Which will neither nourish nor avail against hunger. (7) [Other] faces, that Day, will show pleasure. (8) With their endeavour well pleased. (9) In a Garden on high, (10) Where they shall neither hear harmful speech nor falsehood, (11) Therein will be a bubbling spring: (12) and raised couches, (13) and goblets set at hand, (14) And arranged carpets. (15) And silken carpets spread. (16) What, do they not reflect upon how the camel was created? (17) how the heavens are raised up high, (18) And the mountains, how they are firmly fixed, (19) And at the earth, how it is spread out? (20) And so, [O Prophet,] exhort them; thy task is only to exhort: (21) Thou art not at all a warder over them. (22) However, he who turns away and disbelieves - (23) Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment. (24) Lo! unto Us is their return (25) Then it will be for Us to call them to account. (26)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
