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
HAS THERE COME unto thee the tiding of the Overshadowing Event? (1) (Some) faces on that day shall be downcast, (2) Labouring (hard), weary,- (3) The while they enter the Blazing Fire,- (4) They will be given to drink from a boiling spring, (5) no food for them except thorny plants (6) which neither sustains, nor satisfy hunger. (7) Many a face will be in serenity on that day. (8) well-pleased with [the fruit of] their striving, (9) In the high empyrean, (10) wherein they will not hear any vain talk. (11) Therein is a fountain flowing, (12) and couches raised high, (13) And chosen goblets. (14) Cushions arranged, (15) And linen 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 the heaven, how it is raised? (18) And the mountains, how they were fixed; (19) And the earth, how it is spread? (20) Remind them, for thou art but a remembrancer, (21) You are not charged to oversee them. (22) However, he who turns away and disbelieves - (23) Allah will punish them with the greatest punishment. (24) Indeed, to Us they shall return, (25) Then surely upon Us is the taking of their account. (26)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
