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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Has there reached you the report of the Overwhelming [event]? (1) Some faces will on that Day be downcast, (2) laboring, wornout, (3) Entering into burning fire, (4) that is fueled from a tremendously hot fountain, (5) no food for them but cactus thorn (6) Which doth not nourish nor release from hunger. (7) (Other) faces that Day will be joyful, (8) Pleased with their striving,- (9) In a high Garden (10) hearing there no babble; (11) Therein will be a bubbling spring: (12) Within it are couches raised high (13) and prepared goblets, (14) and cushions ranged, (15) And carpets ready spread, (16) Have they not looked at how the camel is created, (17) how heaven was lifted up, (18) and on the mountains, how they are firmly set up, (19) And how the earth was outstretched? (20) Then remind them! Thou art only a reminder; (21) You are not a warden over them, (22) But he who turns his back, and disbelieves, (23) So Allah will mete out to him the greatest punishment. (24) Surely to Us is their turning back, (25) And Ours their reckoning. (26)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
