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 Most Merciful
Has there come to you the narration of the overwhelming (i.e. the Day of Resurrection); (1) Many a face will be disgraced on that day. (2) Labouring (hard), weary,- (3) roasting at a scorching Fire (4) Made to drink from a boiling spring. (5) They shall have no food but of thorns, (6) Which doth not nourish nor release from hunger. (7) In that day other faces will be calm, (8) With their effort [they are] satisfied (9) in a sublime Garden, (10) where they will hear no idle talk. (11) In it there shall be a flowing spring, (12) Therein are thrones raised high, (13) And drinking-cups ready placed, (14) and arranged cushions (15) and outspread carpets. (16) What, do they not reflect upon how the camel was created? (17) how the heavens are raised up high, (18) how the mountains were hoisted, (19) and how the earth is spread out? (20) So, [O Prophet] exhort them: your task is only to exhort, (21) and are not invested with the authority to compel them. (22) But whoever turns back and denies the truth, (23) Him Allah shall torment with the greatest torment. (24) To Us is surely their returning; (25) then upon Us shall rest their reckoning. (26)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
