Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)
26 verses, revealed in Mecca after Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhaareyaat) before The Cave (Al-Kahf)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
HAS THERE COME unto thee the tiding of the Overshadowing Event? (1) On that day the faces of some people will be humbly cast down, (2) Labouring (hard), weary,- (3) roasting at a scorching fire, (4) given to drink from a boiling spring. (5) they shall have no food but thorns, (6) Which neither give strength nor satisfy the hunger. (7) (Other) faces that Day will be joyful, (8) and pleased with the result of their deeds in the past. (9) In a Garden on high, (10) Wherein they will hear no unsuitable speech. (11) Therein shall be a spring running! (12) therein uplifted couches (13) Goblets set, (14) And cushions lined up (15) and carpets outspread. (16) Do they not then ponder how the clouds were formed; (17) And the heavens, how it was raised high; (18) and on the mountains, how they are firmly set up, (19) how the earth was outstretched? (20) Then remind them! Thou art only a reminder; (21) You are not charged to oversee them. (22) But he who turns his back, and disbelieves, (23) So Allah will mete out to him the greatest punishment. (24) Verily unto Us is their return. (25) and verily, It is for Us to call them to account. (26)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
