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 on that day shall be downcast, 2 troubled and tired as a result of their deeds in the past. 3 The while they enter the Blazing Fire,- 4 Given water from the boiling spring to drink. 5 They will have no food other than bitter and thorny fruit 6 that will neither nourish nor satisfy their hunger. 7 Faces on that day jocund, 8 Well-pleased with their endeavour, 9 In a lofty Paradise. 10 where they will hear no idle talk. 11 Countless springs will flow therein, 12 Therein will be Thrones (of dignity), raised on high, 13 and goblets placed ready, 14 well-placed cushions, 15 And linen spread out. 16 Will they not then consider the camels, how they are created? 17 And the heaven, how it is reared aloft, 18 And the hills, how they are set up? 19 And at the earth, how it is spread out? 20 Therefore do remind, for you are only a reminder. 21 thou art not charged to oversee them. 22 But whoever turns back and disbelieves, 23 In which case he will be punished by God with the severest punishment. 24 Truly, to Us is their return; 25 And Ours their reckoning. 26
Almighty Allah's Truth.
