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 Most Merciful
Hath there come unto thee tidings of the Overwhelming? (1) On that day (many) faces will be downcast, (2) Laboring, toiling, (3) Burning in the scorching fire, (4) and will be made to drink from a boiling spring, (5) They will have no food except bitter thorn, (6) which neither sustains, nor satisfy hunger. (7) [Other] faces, that Day, will show pleasure. (8) Rejoicing over their efforts. (9) In a Garden on high, (10) Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity: (11) therein a running fountain, (12) Therein will be thrones raised high, (13) And goblets ready placed! (14) well-placed cushions, (15) And rich carpets spread. (16) Have they not looked at how the camel is created, (17) And at the heaven, how it is raised? (18) And at the mountains, how firmly they are reared? (19) and how the earth is spread out? (20) Remind them, for thou art but a remembrancer, (21) and are not invested with the authority to compel them. (22) Other than him who turns his back and denies, (23) Allah will punish him with direst punishment. (24) Verily, to Us will be their return; (25) Then, surely, it is for Us to call them to account. (26)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
