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
Hath there come unto thee the story of the Enveloping Event? 1 Many faces will be contrite on that day, 2 Laboring, toiling, 3 they shall enter a burning Fire 4 They will be given to drink from a boiling spring, 5 they shall have no food but thorns, 6 which gives no strength and neither stills hunger. 7 Faces on that Day shall be delighted, 8 Pleased with their striving,- 9 In the high empyrean, 10 where they will hear no idle talk, 11 Therein shall be a spring running! 12 Therein shall be couches elevated! 13 And goblets set at hand 14 cushions ranged, 15 and well spread carpets. 16 Will they not regard the camels, how they are created? 17 how heaven was lifted up, 18 And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?- 19 And at the Earth, how it is spread out? 20 So render good counsel, for you are simply required to counsel, 21 thou art not charged to oversee them. 22 Save the one who turns away and disbelieves 23 Allah will punish him with direst punishment. 24 For to Us will be their return; 25 and then it is for Us to call them to account. 26
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
