Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)
26 verses, revealed in Mecca after Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhaareyaat) before The Cave (Al-Kahf)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Certainly the news of the calamity that will overwhelm has come to you! (1) [Some] faces, that Day, will be humbled, (2) Labouring (hard), weary,- (3) Burning in the scorching fire, (4) Made to drink from a boiling spring. (5) No food will there be for them but a poisonous thorny plant, (6) Which will neither fatten nor avail against hunger. (7) (Other) faces on that day shall be happy, (8) Well-pleased with their endeavour, (9) They will be in a lofty Garden (10) Wherein you shall not hear vain talk. (11) In it is a flowing spring. (12) Therein will be thrones raised high, (13) Goblets placed (ready), (14) And cushions set in a row, (15) And carpets spread around. (16) Then do they not look at the camels - how they are created? (17) and on the sky, how it is raised aloft, (18) And at the mountains - how they are erected? (19) And the earth: how it was spread out? (20) Then remind them! Thou art only a reminder; (21) Thou art not at all a warder over them. (22) But whoever turns back and disbelieves, (23) Him Allah shall torment with the greatest torment. (24) Verily, to Us will be their return; (25) Then, surely, it is for Us to call them to account. (26)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
