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 NEWS OF the Overpowering Event reached you? 1 On that Day, there shall be downcast faces, 2 be toiling and worn-out; 3 They shall roast into the scalding Fire, 4 Drinking from a boiling spring, 5 For them there will be no food except from a poisonous, thorny plant 6 Which neither nourishes nor avails against hunger. 7 Faces on that day jocund, 8 well pleased with the result of their striving, 9 They will live in an exalted garden 10 where they will hear no idle talk, 11 therein a running fountain, 12 And within it are couches placed on high, 13 and goblets placed ready, 14 And cushions ranged 15 and outspread carpets. 16 DO, THEN, they [who deny resurrection] never gaze at the clouds pregnant with water, [and observe] how they are created? 17 And the sky: how it was raised high? 18 And the mountains, how they were fixed; 19 And at the earth, how it is spread out? 20 So, [O Prophet] exhort them: your task is only to exhort, 21 You are not a dictator over them. 22 Other than him who turns his back and denies, 23 Allah will punish him with direst punishment. 24 Surely to Us is their return; 25 and then it is for Us to call them to account. 26
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
