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 Merciful, the Compassionate
Has the news of the overwhelming event reached you? 1 On that Day, there shall be downcast faces, 2 toiling [under burdens of sin,] worn out [by fear,] 3 Entering into burning fire, 4 They will be given 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 Many a face will be in serenity on that day. 8 and pleased with the result of their deeds in the past. 9 in a sublime garden, 10 hearing there no babble; 11 Within it is a flowing spring. 12 Therein shall be couches elevated! 13 and goblets set at hand, 14 well-placed cushions, 15 And silken carpets spread. 16 Do they not look at the camels, how they are created? 17 And at the heaven, how it is raised? 18 And at the mountains, how they are rooted? 19 and how the earth is spread out? 20 Remind them; you are surely a reminder. 21 Thou art not over them a warden. 22 However, those who turn away and disbelieve, 23 Him Allah shall torment with the greatest torment. 24 To Us they will all return. 25 and then it is for Us to call them to account. 26
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
