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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Has the news of the overwhelming event reached 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) toiling [under burdens of sin,] worn out [by fear,] (3) about to enter a glowing fire, (4) their drink shall be from a boiling spring. (5) They shall have no food except bitter dry thorns (6) which neither sustains, nor satisfy hunger. (7) (Other) faces that Day will be joyful, (8) Glad with their endeavour (for their good deeds which they did in this world, along with the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism). (9) In a Garden on high, (10) wherein they shall hear no vain talk. (11) Therein is a fountain flowing, (12) raised couches, (13) And cups set at hand. (14) And cushions set in a row, (15) And carpets ready spread, (16) Will they not regard the camels, how they are created? (17) And at the sky, how it is raised aloft? (18) And at the mountains, how they are rooted and fixed firm? (19) And the earth how it has been spread out? (20) So, [O Prophet] exhort them: your task is only to exhort, (21) you are not their keeper. (22) But whoever turns back and denies the truth, (23) Him Allah shall torment with the greatest torment. (24) Truly, to Us is their return; (25) Then surely upon Us is the taking of their account. (26)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
