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
Hast thou received the story of the Enveloper? (1) Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated (in the Hell-fire, i.e. the faces of all disbelievers, Jews and Christians, etc.). (2) Laboring, toiling, (3) Burning in the scorching fire, (4) watered at a boiling fountain, (5) They shall have no food but of thorns, (6) unfattening, unappeasing hunger. (7) However, on that day the faces of other people will be happy. (8) well-pleased with [the fruit of] their striving, (9) in a sublime garden, (10) where they will hear no idle talk. (11) There is a stream of running water in it; (12) therein uplifted couches (13) And drinking-cups ready placed, (14) And arranged carpets. (15) And carpets ready spread, (16) DO, THEN, they [who deny resurrection] never gaze at the clouds pregnant with water, [and observe] how they are created? (17) And at the heaven, how it is raised? (18) And at the mountains, how they are rooted and fixed firm? (19) And how the earth was outstretched? (20) And so, [O Prophet,] exhort them; thy task is only to exhort: (21) You do not have full control over them. (22) But whosoever will turn back and disbelieve (23) God shall chastise him with the greatest chastisement. (24) Surely to Us is their turning back, (25) Then, surely, it is for Us to call them to account. (26)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
