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 Merciful, the Compassionate
HAS THERE COME unto thee the tiding of the Overshadowing Event? (1) On that day (many) faces will be downcast, (2) Labouring, wearied out, (3) roasting at a scorching Fire (4) Made to drink water from the boiling hot spring. (5) For them there will be no food except from a poisonous, thorny plant (6) Neither nourishing nor banishing hunger. (7) However, on that day the faces of other people will be happy. (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 shall be in a Garden lofty: (10) Where they hear no idle speech, (11) Therein shall be a spring running! (12) [and] there will be thrones [of happiness] raised high, (13) and prepared goblets, (14) And cushions lined up (15) and carpets spread out. (16) Will they not then consider the camels, how they are created? (17) and on the sky, how it is raised aloft, (18) And at the mountains, how firmly they are reared? (19) And the earth, how it was spread out? (20) Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish. (21) thou canst not compel them [to believe]. (22) Save the one who turns away and disbelieves (23) God will punish them with the greatest torment. (24) Indeed, to Us they shall return, (25) and then it is for Us to call them to account. (26)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
