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 Merciful, the Compassionate
Has there reached you the report of the Overwhelming [event]? (1) Many a face will be disgraced on that day. (2) Labouring (hard), weary,- (3) they shall burn in a Scorching Fire; (4) and will be made to drink from a fiercely boiling spring. (5) No food will there be for them but a bitter Dhari' (6) which neither sustains, nor satisfy hunger. (7) In that day other faces will be calm, (8) well-pleased with [the fruit of] their striving, (9) In an elevated garden, (10) wherein they will not hear any vain talk. (11) A gushing fountain shall be there (12) Within it are couches raised high (13) And goblets set at hand (14) And cushions set in rows, (15) and outspread carpets. (16) DO, THEN, they [who deny resurrection] never gaze at the clouds pregnant with water, [and observe] how they are created? (17) And the heaven, how it is reared aloft, (18) how the mountains are set firm, (19) And the earth how it has been spread out? (20) So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder. (21) and are not invested with the authority to compel them. (22) But whoever will turn away (from the Truth), (23) will be punished by God with the greatest punishment. (24) To Us they will all return. (25) then upon Us shall rest their reckoning. (26)
Almighty God's Truth.
