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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Has there reached you the report of the Overwhelming [event]? 1 Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated, 2 be toiling and worn-out; 3 roasting at a scorching Fire 4 Given to drink of a spring fiercely boiling. 5 No food for them save the bitterness of dry thorns, 6 Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger. 7 [Other] faces, that Day, will show pleasure. 8 Well-pleased because of their striving, 9 in a garden sublime, 10 hearing there no babble; 11 In it is a flowing spring. 12 Therein are thrones raised high, 13 And drinking-cups ready placed, 14 And arranged carpets. 15 And carpets ready spread, 16 Have they not looked at how the camel is created, 17 how heaven was lifted up, 18 and on the mountains, how they are firmly set up, 19 and on the earth, how it is spread out? 20 So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder. 21 Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs. 22 Save the one who turns away and disbelieves 23 Allah will punish them with the greatest punishment. 24 Certainly, it is to Us that they will return. 25 Then verily, for Us will be their reckoning. 26
Almighty God's Truth.
