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 Compassionate, the Merciful
Has the story reached thee of the overwhelming (Event)? (1) On that day (many) faces will be downcast, (2) troubled and tired as a result of their deeds in the past. (3) roasting at a scorching fire, (4) and will be made to drink from a boiling spring, (5) They will have no food except bitter thorn, (6) Which will neither nourish nor avail against 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 high Garden (10) hearing there no babble; (11) Countless springs will flow therein, (12) [and] there will be thrones [of happiness] raised high, (13) and prepared goblets, (14) and arranged cushions (15) and well spread carpets. (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 firmly they are reared? (19) and how the earth is spread out? (20) Therefore advise; indeed you are a proclaimer of advice. (The Holy Prophet is a Remembrance from Allah.) (21) You are not a warden over them, (22) As for those who turn their back and disbelieve, (23) will be punished by God with the greatest punishment. (24) Verily unto Us is their return. (25) Then verily on Us is their reckoning. (26)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
