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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Have you received the news of the Enveloper? (1) Many faces will be contrite on that day, (2) laboring, wornout, (3) about to enter a glowing fire, (4) and will be made to drink from a boiling spring, (5) No food for them save bitter thorn-fruit (6) which will neither fatten them nor satisfy them. (7) [And] some faces will on that Day shine with bliss, (8) well pleased with their striving, (9) in a Garden on high, (10) Wherein they will hear no unsuitable speech. (11) In it there shall be a flowing spring, (12) In which are high thrones. (13) And drinking-cups ready placed, (14) And cushions set in a row, (15) and well spread carpets. (16) Do they not then ponder how the clouds were formed; (17) how heaven was lifted up, (18) And at the mountains, how they are rooted? (19) And at the Earth, how it is spread out? (20) So, [O Prophet] exhort them: your task is only to exhort, (21) You are not over them a controller. (22) Save the one who turns away and disbelieves (23) Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment. (24) Surely to Us is their turning back, (25) And Ours their reckoning. (26)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
