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, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Have you heard the story of the overwhelming event (the Day of Judgment)? (1) Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated, (2) Working [hard] and exhausted. (3) They will enter in the hot blazing Fire, (4) their drink shall be from a boiling spring. (5) There is no food for them except thorns of fire. (6) Which shall neither nourish nor avail against hunger. (7) Some faces on that Day will be radiant, (8) well pleased with their striving, (9) They will be in a lofty Garden (10) wherein they shall hear no vain talk. (11) Wherein is a gushing spring, (12) Therein will be Thrones (of dignity), raised on high, (13) Goblets set, (14) And cushions set in rows, (15) and carpets outspread. (16) Have they not looked at how the camel is created, (17) And the heaven how it has been raised? (18) and how the mountains were firmly fixed? (19) And how the earth was outstretched? (20) So remind them (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)), you are only a one who reminds. (21) You are not charged to oversee them. (22) Save the one who turns away and disbelieves (23) Allah will chastise him with the most terrible chastisement. (24) For to Us will be their return; (25) Ours is surely then to reckon with them. (26)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
