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, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Has the story reached thee of the overwhelming (Event)? (1) Faces on that day humbled, (2) Toiling, weary, (3) Scorched by burning fire, (4) given to drink from a boiling spring. (5) They will have no food except bitter thorn, (6) Which neither give strength nor satisfy the hunger. (7) (Other) faces that Day will be joyful, (8) Glad for their effort past, (9) They will be in a lofty Garden (10) Where they shall neither hear harmful speech nor falsehood, (11) Therein will be a bubbling spring: (12) and couches raised high, (13) And goblets set at hand (14) and arranged cushions (15) and outspread carpets. (16) Do they not then ponder how the clouds were formed; (17) And at the sky - how it is raised? (18) how the mountains were hoisted, (19) And how the earth was outstretched? (20) So, [O Prophet] exhort them: your task is only to exhort, (21) Thou art not at all a warder over them. (22) But if any turn away and reject Allah,- (23) Him Allah shall torment with the greatest torment. (24) Indeed only towards Us is their return (25) Ours is surely then to reckon with them. (26)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
