Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)
26 verses, revealed in Mecca after Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhaareyaat) before The Cave (Al-Kahf)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Hath there come unto thee the story of the Enveloping Event? 1 Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated, 2 labouring, toilworn, 3 They will [enter to] burn in an intensely hot Fire. 4 Made to drink water from the boiling hot spring. 5 No food shall be theirs save bitter thorn, 6 Which will neither fatten nor avail against hunger. 7 Faces on that Day shall be delighted, 8 Pleased with their striving,- 9 In an elevated garden, 10 wherein they shall hear no vain talk. 11 In it there shall be a flowing spring, 12 Within it are couches raised high 13 And goblets set at hand 14 And cushions lined up 15 and rich carpets levelled out. 16 Will they not then consider the camels, how they are created? 17 and on the sky, how it is raised aloft, 18 And the mountains, how they are firmly fixed, 19 and on 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 You are not charged to oversee them. 22 But whoever will turn away (from the Truth), 23 Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment. 24 Indeed, to Us is their return. 25 Then, surely, it is for Us to call them to account. 26
God the Almighty always says the truth.
