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 Most Merciful
Has the news of the overwhelming event reached you? 1 (Some) faces on that day shall be downcast, 2 Labouring, striving hard. 3 They will enter in the hot blazing Fire, 4 watered at a boiling fountain, 5 No food for them save bitter thorn-fruit 6 which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger. 7 In that day other faces will be calm, 8 Well-pleased because of their striving, 9 They will be in a lofty Garden 10 wherein they will not hear any vain talk. 11 therein a running fountain, 12 And within it are couches placed on high, 13 well arranged goblets, 14 well-placed cushions, 15 and carpets spread out. 16 Do they not then ponder how the clouds were formed; 17 And the heaven how it has been raised? 18 And at the mountains - how they are erected? 19 And the earth, how it was spread out? 20 So render good counsel, for you are simply required to counsel, 21 and are not invested with the authority to compel them. 22 But whoever turns back and denies the truth, 23 Allah will punish them with the greatest punishment. 24 Verily, to Us will be their return; 25 then upon Us shall rest their reckoning. 26
Almighty Allah's Truth.
