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 the news of the overwhelming event reached you? (1) Some faces will on that Day be downcast, (2) labouring, toilworn, (3) about to enter a glowing fire, (4) Made to drink from a boiling spring. (5) They will have no food other than bitter and thorny fruit (6) which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger. (7) Some faces on that Day will be radiant, (8) with their striving well-pleased, (9) In a high Garden. (10) wherein thou wilt hear no empty talk. (11) In it there shall be a flowing spring, (12) and couches raised high, (13) And chosen goblets. (14) And cushions set in rows, (15) And carpets ready spread, (16) So do they not see the camel how it has been created? (17) And at the heaven, how it is raised? (18) and on the mountains, how they are firmly set up, (19) And at the earth - how it is spread out? (20) So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder. (21) You are not a watcher over them; (22) Other than him who turns his back and denies, (23) Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment. (24) Surely to Us is their return; (25) and verily, It is for Us to call them to account. (26)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
