Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)
26 verses, revealed in Mecca after Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhaareyaat) before The Cave (Al-Kahf)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Certainly the news of the calamity that will overwhelm has come to you! (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 (hard), weary,- (3) They shall roast into the scalding Fire, (4) and will be made to drink from a boiling spring, (5) No food will there be for them but a poisonous thorny plant, (6) Which shall neither nourish nor avail against hunger. (7) In that day other faces will be calm, (8) Pleased with their striving,- (9) They will be in a lofty Garden (10) Wherein you shall not hear vain talk. (11) Therein will be a bubbling spring: (12) and raised couches, (13) And goblets ready placed! (14) And arranged carpets. (15) and well spread carpets. (16) Do they not then ponder how the clouds were formed; (17) And at the heaven, how it is raised? (18) and how the mountains were firmly fixed? (19) And the earth how it has been spread out? (20) Therefore do remind, for you are only a reminder. (21) You are not charged to oversee them. (22) But he who turns his back, and disbelieves, (23) will be punished by God with the greatest punishment. (24) For to Us will be their return; (25) Then indeed only upon Us is their reckoning. (26)
Almighty God's Truth.
