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
Have you heard the story of the overwhelming event (the Day of Judgment)? (1) On that Day faces shall be humbled, (2) Labouring, striving hard. (3) (Yet) Going into the blazing fire. (4) Given water from the boiling spring to drink. (5) They will have no food except bitter thorn, (6) Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger. (7) On that very Day some faces shall be radiant with joy, (8) and pleased with the result of their deeds in the past. (9) In the high empyrean, (10) Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity: (11) Wherein is a gushing spring, (12) therein uplifted couches (13) Goblets placed (ready), (14) well-placed cushions, (15) and outspread carpets. (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 has been raised? (18) And at the mountains, how they are rooted and fixed firm? (19) and on the earth, how it is spread out? (20) Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish. (21) You do not have full control over them. (22) But he who turns his back, and disbelieves, (23) God shall chastise him with the greatest chastisement. (24) For to Us will be their return; (25) And Ours their reckoning. (26)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
