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, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Has the news of the overwhelming event reached you? 1 On that Day, there shall be downcast faces, 2 Working [hard] and exhausted. 3 about to enter a glowing fire, 4 watered at a boiling fountain, 5 For them there will be no food except from a poisonous, thorny plant 6 Which will neither fatten nor avail against hunger. 7 On that very Day some faces shall be radiant with joy, 8 well pleased with their striving, 9 in a sublime garden, 10 Where they hear no idle speech, 11 There is a stream of running water in it; 12 Therein shall be couches elevated! 13 and goblets set at hand, 14 And cushions ranged! 15 and carpets spread out. 16 Do (these unbelievers) not observe the camels: how they were created? 17 And the heaven how it has been raised? 18 And the hills, how they are set up? 19 And how the earth was outstretched? 20 (Muhammad), preach; you are only a preacher. 21 Thou art not over them a warden. 22 But if any turn away and reject Allah,- 23 Allah will punish them with the greatest punishment. 24 For to Us will be their return; 25 Then it will be for Us to call them to account. 26
God the Almighty always says the truth.
