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
Have you received the news of the Enveloper? (1) Some faces will on that Day be downcast, (2) Labouring (hard in the worldly life by worshipping others besides Allah), weary (in the Hereafter with humility and disgrace). (3) (Yet) Going into the blazing fire. (4) They will be given to drink from a boiling spring, (5) no food for them except thorny plants (6) Neither nourishing nor banishing hunger. (7) (Other) faces on that day shall be happy, (8) well-pleased with their striving. (9) In a lofty Paradise. (10) wherein they shall hear no vain talk. (11) There is a stream of running water in it; (12) Therein are thrones raised high, (13) and prepared goblets, (14) And cushions set in rows, (15) and carpets outspread. (16) Will they not then consider the camels, how they are created? (17) how heaven was lifted up, (18) And at the mountains - how they are erected? (19) how the earth was outstretched? (20) Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish. (21) thou art not charged to oversee them. (22) But whoever turns back and denies the truth, (23) will be punished by God with the greatest punishment. (24) To Us is surely their returning; (25) Then, surely, it is for Us to call them to account. (26)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
