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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Has the story reached thee of the overwhelming (Event)? 1 Some faces will on that Day be downcast, 2 be toiling and worn-out; 3 The while they enter the Blazing Fire,- 4 They will be given drink from a boiling spring. 5 No food shall be theirs save bitter thorn, 6 Which neither give strength nor satisfy the hunger. 7 (Other) faces that Day will be joyful, 8 Pleased with their striving,- 9 In a lofty garden, 10 wherein they shall hear no vain talk. 11 Within it is a flowing spring. 12 raised couches, 13 And cups put in place 14 And cushions set in a row, 15 And rich carpets (all) spread out. 16 DO, THEN, they [who deny resurrection] never gaze at the clouds pregnant with water, [and observe] how they are created? 17 And at the heaven, how it is raised? 18 And the mountains how they have been established? 19 how the earth was outstretched? 20 (Muhammad), preach; you are only a preacher. 21 You do not have full control over them. 22 However, those who turn away and disbelieve, 23 Allah will punish them with the greatest punishment. 24 Certainly, it is to Us that they will return. 25 Then verily, for Us will be their reckoning. 26
True are the words of God the Almighty.
