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, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Has not there come to you the news of the overwhelming calamity? 1 (Some) faces on that day shall be downcast, 2 toiling [under burdens of sin,] worn out [by fear,] 3 Scorched by burning fire, 4 that is fueled from a tremendously hot fountain, 5 They shall have no food except bitter dry thorns 6 Which shall neither nourish nor avail against hunger. 7 (Other) faces that Day will be joyful, 8 Well-pleased with their endeavour, 9 They will be in a lofty Garden 10 They shall hear therein no vain discourse; 11 There is a stream of running water in it; 12 [and] there will be thrones [of happiness] raised high, 13 and prepared goblets, 14 And cushions set in rows, 15 and outspread carpets. 16 So do they not see the camel how it has been created? 17 And at the sky - how it is raised? 18 And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?- 19 And at the Earth, how it is spread out? 20 And so, [O Prophet,] exhort them; thy task is only to exhort: 21 You are not at all a guardian over them. 22 As for those who turn their back and disbelieve, 23 Allah will chastise him with the most terrible chastisement. 24 Indeed only towards Us is their return 25 Then it will be for Us to call them to account. 26
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
