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 Compassionate
Certainly the news of the calamity that will overwhelm has come to you! (1) Many faces will be contrite on that day, (2) Labouring, wearied out, (3) roasting at a scorching fire, (4) Drinking from a boiling spring, (5) For them there will be no food except from a poisonous, thorny plant (6) unfattening, unappeasing hunger. (7) [And] some faces will on that Day shine with bliss, (8) With their effort [they are] satisfied (9) In a Garden on high, (10) Where they hear no idle speech, (11) Wherein is a gushing spring, (12) In which are high thrones. (13) Goblets set, (14) And cushions ranged! (15) And linen spread out. (16) Will they not regard the camels, how they are created? (17) And the heavens, how it was raised high; (18) And at the mountains, how they are rooted? (19) And the earth, how it is spread? (20) And so, [O Prophet,] exhort them; thy task is only to exhort: (21) you are not their keeper. (22) Other than him who turns his back and denies, (23) Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment. (24) Verily, to Us will be their return; (25) and then it is for Us to call them to account. (26)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
