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) Faces on that day humbled, (2) Labouring (hard in the worldly life by worshipping others besides Allah), weary (in the Hereafter with humility and disgrace). (3) roasting at a scorching fire, (4) their drink shall be from a boiling spring. (5) There is no food for them except thorns of fire. (6) that will neither nourish nor satisfy their hunger. (7) Some faces on that Day will be radiant, (8) Pleased with their striving,- (9) in a garden sublime, (10) where they will hear no idle talk. (11) Therein is a fountain flowing, (12) In which are high thrones. (13) Goblets placed (ready), (14) and cushions arrayed (15) And linen spread out. (16) What, do they not reflect upon how the camel was created? (17) And the sky: how it was raised high? (18) And the mountains, how they were fixed; (19) And how the earth was outstretched? (20) And so, [O Prophet,] exhort them; thy task is only to exhort: (21) Thou art not at all a warder over them. (22) But whosoever will turn back and disbelieve (23) In which case he will be punished by God with the severest punishment. (24) Lo! unto Us is their return (25) then upon Us shall rest their reckoning. (26)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
