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
Has not there come to you the news of the overwhelming calamity? (1) Many a face will be disgraced on that day. (2) Toiling, weary, (3) roasting at a scorching Fire (4) their drink shall be from a boiling spring. (5) No food will there be for them but a bitter Dhari' (6) which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger. (7) Many a face will be in serenity on that day. (8) Rejoicing over their efforts. (9) In a lofty garden, (10) where they will hear no idle talk, (11) Countless springs will flow therein, (12) and couches raised high, (13) And drinking-cups ready placed, (14) And cushions set in rows, (15) and rich carpets levelled out. (16) Look they not at the camels, how they are created? (17) And at the heaven, how it is raised? (18) And at the mountains, how firmly they are reared? (19) And at the earth, how it is spread out? (20) Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish. (21) You are not a watcher over them; (22) Save the one who turns away and disbelieves (23) Allah will chastise him with the greatest chastisement. (24) To Us they will all return. (25) And Ours their reckoning. (26)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
