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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Has the news of the overwhelming event reached you? (1) Many faces will be contrite on that day, (2) labouring, weary, (3) They will [enter to] burn in an intensely hot Fire. (4) and will be made to drink from a boiling spring, (5) They shall have no food but of thorns, (6) Neither nourishing nor banishing hunger. (7) In that day other faces will be calm, (8) Rejoicing over their efforts. (9) In a high Garden. (10) Where they hear no idle speech, (11) Therein will be a bubbling spring: (12) Therein will be Thrones (of dignity), raised on high, (13) and goblets laid out, (14) and cushions arrayed in rows, (15) and carpets spread out. (16) Then do they not look at the camels - how they are created? (17) how heaven was lifted up, (18) and on the mountains, how they are firmly set up, (19) And at the earth - how it is spread out? (20) (Muhammad), preach; you are only a preacher. (21) Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs. (22) Other than him who turns his back and denies, (23) Allah will chastise him with the most terrible chastisement. (24) Verily unto Us is their return. (25) Then verily, for Us will be their reckoning. (26)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
