Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)
26 verses, revealed in Mecca after Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhaareyaat) before The Cave (Al-Kahf)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Has not there come to you the news of the overwhelming calamity? 1 Many faces will be contrite on that day, 2 Laboring, toiling, 3 about to enter a glowing fire, 4 The while they are given, to drink, of a boiling hot spring, 5 no food for them but cactus thorn 6 Neither nourishing nor banishing hunger. 7 (Whereas other) faces on that Day will be joyful, 8 well pleased with the result of their striving, 9 They will be in a lofty Garden 10 Where they hear no idle speech, 11 Countless springs will flow therein, 12 and couches raised high, 13 And drinking-cups ready placed, 14 and cushions arrayed in rows, 15 and well spread carpets. 16 Do they not look at the Camels, how they are made?- 17 And how the heaven was raised up, 18 And at the mountains, how firmly they are reared? 19 And how the earth was outstretched? 20 Therefore remind, you are only a Reminder. 21 You do not have full control over them. 22 Except whoever turns away and disbelieves 23 Allah will chastise him with the greatest chastisement. 24 To Us they will all return. 25 Then indeed only upon Us is their reckoning. 26
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
