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
HAS NEWS OF the Overpowering Event reached you? 1 On that day (many) faces will be downcast, 2 troubled and tired as a result of their deeds in the past. 3 Burning in the scorching fire, 4 watered at a boiling fountain, 5 They shall have no food except bitter dry thorns 6 which gives no strength and neither stills hunger. 7 (Whereas other) faces on that Day will be joyful, 8 Glad for their effort past, 9 They will live in an exalted garden 10 where they will hear no idle talk, 11 Therein shall be a spring running! 12 And within it are couches placed on high, 13 Goblets set, 14 cushions ranged, 15 And silken carpets spread. 16 So do they not see the camel how it has been created? 17 And the sky: how it was raised high? 18 And at the mountains, how they are rooted and fixed firm? 19 and on the earth, how it is spread out? 20 Remind them; you are surely a reminder. 21 You are not a warden over them, 22 But whoever turns back and denies the truth, 23 Allah will punish him with a mighty Punishment, 24 Verily, to Us will be their return; 25 Then, surely, it is for Us to call them to account. 26
Almighty God's Truth.
