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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
HAS NEWS OF the Overpowering Event reached you? (1) On that Day, there shall be downcast faces, (2) labouring, weary, (3) they shall enter a burning Fire (4) They will be given to drink from a boiling spring, (5) They will have no food except bitter thorn, (6) Which will neither fatten nor avail against hunger. (7) However, on that day the faces of other people will be happy. (8) well-pleased with their striving. (9) In a lofty garden, (10) wherein thou wilt hear no empty talk. (11) There is a stream of running water in it; (12) therein uplifted couches (13) And drinking-cups ready placed, (14) and cushions arrayed (15) and rich carpets levelled out. (16) What, do they not reflect upon how the camel was created? (17) how heaven was lifted up, (18) And the mountains how they have been established? (19) And at the earth, how it is spread out? (20) So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder. (21) You are not at all a guardian over them. (22) Other than him who turns his back and denies, (23) God shall chastise him with the greatest chastisement. (24) To Us they will all return. (25) Then indeed, upon Us is their account. (26)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
