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 Merciful, the Compassionate
Has the story reached thee of the overwhelming (Event)? (1) On that Day faces shall be humbled, (2) Labouring, wearied out, (3) The while they enter the Blazing Fire,- (4) that is fueled from a tremendously hot fountain, (5) they shall have no food but thorns, (6) Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger. (7) On that very Day some faces shall be radiant with joy, (8) With their endeavour well pleased. (9) In an elevated garden, (10) Where they hear no idle speech, (11) with a flowing spring, (12) and couches raised high, (13) And goblets ready placed! (14) and cushions ranged, (15) and carpets outspread. (16) Do they never reflect on the camels and how they were created, (17) And how the heaven was raised up, (18) And the mountains: how they were fixed? (19) and on the earth, how it is spread out? (20) Therefore advise; indeed you are a proclaimer of advice. (The Holy Prophet is a Remembrance from Allah.) (21) Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs. (22) Except whoever turns away and disbelieves (23) Allah will punish them with the greatest punishment. (24) Indeed only towards Us is their return (25) and then it is for Us to call them to account. (26)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
