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 received the news of the Enveloper? 1 On that Day, there shall be downcast faces, 2 labouring, toilworn, 3 roasting at a scorching Fire 4 Made to drink from a boiling spring. 5 they shall have no food but thorns, 6 which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger. 7 Some faces on that Day will be radiant, 8 With their effort [they are] satisfied 9 In a lofty garden, 10 Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity: 11 Therein shall be a spring running! 12 raised couches, 13 Goblets placed (ready), 14 And cushions set in rows, 15 And carpets spread out. 16 Then do they not look at the camels - how they are created? 17 And how the heaven was raised up, 18 And at the mountains, how they are rooted? 19 And the earth how it has been spread out? 20 So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder. 21 You do not have full control over them. 22 But if any turn away and reject Allah,- 23 Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment. 24 Certainly, it is to Us that they will return. 25 And Ours their reckoning. 26
True are the words of God the Almighty.
