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 benevolent, ever-merciful
Has the news of the overwhelming event reached you? (1) Many a face will be disgraced on that day. (2) Labouring, striving hard. (3) about to enter a glowing 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 neither nourishes nor avails against hunger. (7) However, on that day the faces of other people will be happy. (8) Glad for their effort past, (9) In a Garden on high, (10) Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity: (11) Within it is a flowing spring. (12) raised couches, (13) and goblets set at hand, (14) and cushions ranged, (15) And silken carpets spread. (16) DO, THEN, they [who deny resurrection] never gaze at the clouds pregnant with water, [and observe] how they are created? (17) And at the heaven, how it is raised? (18) how the mountains were hoisted, (19) And at the earth - how it is spread out? (20) So remind them (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)), you are only a one who reminds. (21) You are not a dictator over them. (22) But whoever will turn away (from the Truth), (23) Allah will chastise him with the most terrible chastisement. (24) To Us is surely their returning; (25) Ours is surely then to reckon with them. (26)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
