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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Certainly the news of the calamity that will overwhelm has come to you! (1) On that day the faces of some people will be humbly cast down, (2) toiling [under burdens of sin,] worn out [by fear,] (3) Burning in the scorching fire, (4) They will be given to drink from a boiling spring, (5) They will have no food except bitter thorn, (6) Which will neither fatten nor avail against hunger. (7) Many faces will be joyous on that day, (8) Glad for their effort past, (9) They shall be in a Garden lofty: (10) wherein thou wilt hear no empty talk. (11) Therein will be a bubbling spring: (12) and raised couches, (13) And chosen goblets. (14) And cushions set in rows, (15) And carpets spread around. (16) Do (these unbelievers) not observe the camels: how they were created? (17) And how the heaven was raised up, (18) And the hills, how they are set up? (19) And at the Earth, how it is spread out? (20) So, [O Prophet] exhort them: your task is only to exhort, (21) Thou art not at all a warder over them. (22) As for those who turn their back and disbelieve, (23) Allah will punish them with the greatest punishment. (24) Surely to Us is their return; (25) Then verily, for Us will be their reckoning. (26)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
