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
Have you received the news of the Enveloper? (1) Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated, (2) Travailing, worn. (3) about to enter a glowing fire, (4) Made to drink from a boiling spring. (5) No food will there be for them but a bitter Dhari' (6) Which neither give strength nor satisfy the hunger. (7) Many faces will be joyous on that day, (8) Glad with their endeavour (for their good deeds which they did in this world, along with the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism). (9) They will be in a lofty Garden (10) wherein they shall hear no vain talk. (11) Therein will be a flowing spring, (12) and couches raised high, (13) And goblets set at hand (14) Cushions arranged, (15) and carpets spread out. (16) What, do they not reflect upon how the camel was created? (17) And at the heaven, how it is raised? (18) And at the mountains, how they are rooted? (19) And the earth, how it is spread? (20) And so, [O Prophet,] exhort them; thy task is only to exhort: (21) You are not over them a controller. (22) But if any turn away and reject Allah,- (23) him will God cause to suffer the greatest suffering [in the life to come]: (24) To Us is surely their returning; (25) And Ours their reckoning. (26)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
