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 the news of the overwhelming event reached you? (1) [Some] faces, that Day, will be humbled, (2) be toiling and worn-out; (3) Scorched by burning fire, (4) that is fueled from a tremendously hot fountain, (5) They will have no food other than bitter and thorny fruit (6) Which neither nourishes nor avails against hunger. (7) On that very Day some faces shall be radiant with joy, (8) With their endeavour well pleased. (9) in a sublime Garden, (10) Wherein you shall not hear vain talk. (11) Therein shall be a spring running! (12) therein uplifted couches (13) And drinking-cups ready placed, (14) and cushions arrayed (15) And silken carpets spread. (16) What, do they not consider how the camel was created, (17) how the heavens are raised up high, (18) And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?- (19) And how the earth was outstretched? (20) (Muhammad), preach; you are only a preacher. (21) and are not invested with the authority to compel them. (22) But he who turns his back, and disbelieves, (23) In which case he will be punished by God with the severest punishment. (24) Verily, to Us will be their return; (25) In Our hands are their accounts. (26)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
