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 Merciful, the Compassionate
HAS THERE COME unto thee the tiding of the Overshadowing Event? 1 Many a face will be disgraced on that day. 2 labouring, toilworn, 3 they shall enter a burning Fire 4 They will be given drink from a boiling spring. 5 they shall have no food but thorns, 6 Which will neither fatten nor avail against hunger. 7 [Other] faces, that Day, will show pleasure. 8 With their endeavour well pleased. 9 They shall be in a Garden lofty: 10 wherein thou wilt hear no empty talk. 11 Within it is a flowing spring. 12 raised couches, 13 And drinking-cups ready placed, 14 And cushions set in rows, 15 and outspread carpets. 16 What, do they not reflect upon how the camel was created? 17 how the heavens are raised up high, 18 And at the mountains - how they are erected? 19 And the earth how it has been spread out? 20 So, [O Prophet] exhort them: your task is only to exhort, 21 You are not a warden over them, 22 However, as for him who turns away, being bent on denying the truth, 23 Him Allah shall torment with the greatest torment. 24 Truly, to Us is their return; 25 and then it is for Us to call them to account. 26
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
