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
Hath there come unto thee tidings of the Overwhelming? (1) On that day (many) faces will be downcast, (2) labouring, toilworn, (3) They will suffer the heat of the blazing fire (4) and will be made to drink from a boiling spring, (5) They shall have no food but of thorns, (6) Neither nourishing nor banishing hunger. (7) (Other) faces that Day will be joyful, (8) with their striving well-pleased, (9) in a garden sublime, (10) Wherein they will hear no unsuitable speech. (11) Therein is a fountain flowing, (12) Therein will be thrones raised high, (13) and goblets placed ready, (14) cushions ranged, (15) And carpets spread around. (16) Do they never reflect on the camels and how they were created, (17) And the heaven how it has been raised? (18) how the mountains are set firm, (19) And at the Earth, how it is spread out? (20) So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder. (21) thou canst not compel them [to believe]. (22) Save the one who turns away and disbelieves (23) Him Allah shall torment with the greatest torment. (24) To Us they will all return. (25) Ours is surely then to reckon with them. (26)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
