Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)
26 verses, revealed in Mecca after Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhaareyaat) before The Cave (Al-Kahf)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Certainly the news of the calamity that will overwhelm has come to you! 1 Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated (in the Hell-fire, i.e. the faces of all disbelievers, Jews and Christians, etc.). 2 Travailing, worn. 3 (Yet) Going into the blazing fire. 4 Given water from the boiling spring to drink. 5 They shall have no food but of thorns, 6 which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger. 7 (Other) faces that Day will be joyful, 8 Glad for their effort past, 9 In a high Garden 10 They shall hear therein no vain discourse; 11 Therein will be a running spring, 12 Wherein are couches raised 13 And cups set at hand. 14 cushions ranged, 15 And rich carpets spread. 16 Do they never reflect on the camels and how they were created, 17 And the heaven, how it is reared aloft, 18 And the hills, how they are set up? 19 And how the earth was outstretched? 20 So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder. 21 You are not at all a guardian over them. 22 But whoever will turn away (from the Truth), 23 God will punish them with the greatest torment. 24 Indeed, to Us is their return. 25 Then indeed only upon Us is their reckoning. 26
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
