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, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Has the news of the overwhelming event reached you? (1) Many a face will be disgraced on that day. (2) Labouring, wearied out, (3) (Yet) Going into the blazing fire. (4) Made to drink from a boiling spring. (5) They shall have no food except bitter dry thorns (6) unfattening, unappeasing hunger. (7) (Other) faces that Day will be joyful, (8) With their endeavour well pleased. (9) In a lofty Paradise. (10) wherein they shall hear no vain talk. (11) therein a running fountain, (12) In which are high thrones. (13) Goblets placed (ready), (14) And cushions ranged (15) And carpets spread around. (16) Do they never reflect on the camels and how they were created, (17) And the heavens, how it was raised high; (18) And at the mountains, how they are rooted and fixed firm? (19) And how the earth was outstretched? (20) So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder. (21) you are not their keeper. (22) However, those who turn away and disbelieve, (23) Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment. (24) Indeed, to Us they shall return, (25) Then it will be for Us to call them to account. (26)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
