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 Dispenser of Grace
HAS THERE COME unto thee the tiding of the Overshadowing Event? (1) Faces on that day humbled, (2) troubled and tired as a result of their deeds in the past. (3) Scorched by burning fire, (4) and will be made to drink from a fiercely boiling spring. (5) They shall have no food but of thorns, (6) which gives no strength and neither stills hunger. (7) In that day other faces will be calm, (8) Glad for their effort past, (9) They will live in an exalted garden (10) wherein they will not hear any vain talk. (11) Therein will be a bubbling spring: (12) Within it are couches raised high (13) And drinking-cups ready placed, (14) And cushions set in a row, (15) and well spread carpets. (16) Do they not look at the camels, how they are created? (17) And the heaven how it has been raised? (18) and how the mountains were firmly fixed? (19) And at the earth, how it is spread out? (20) Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish. (21) Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs. (22) But whoever turns back and disbelieves, (23) will be punished by God with the greatest punishment. (24) Verily, to Us will be their return; (25) and verily, It is for Us to call them to account. (26)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
