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 heard about the Overwhelming Event? 1 Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated, 2 laboring, wornout, 3 Burning in the scorching fire, 4 given to drink from a boiling spring. 5 no food for them except thorny plants 6 Which shall neither nourish nor avail against hunger. 7 On that very Day some faces shall be radiant with joy, 8 with their striving well-pleased, 9 In the high empyrean, 10 In which they will not hear any lewd speech. 11 In it there shall be a flowing spring, 12 Therein are thrones raised high, 13 And goblets ready placed! 14 And cushions lined up 15 And carpets spread out. 16 What, do they not consider how the camel was created, 17 how heaven was lifted up, 18 And the hills, how they are set up? 19 And at 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 over them a warden. 22 Other than him who turns his back and denies, 23 So Allah will mete out to him the greatest punishment. 24 Verily unto Us is their return. 25 Then surely upon Us is the taking of their account. 26
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
