Juz 30
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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Has there reached you the report of the Overwhelming [event]? (1) Faces on that day humbled, (2) Labouring, striving hard. (3) They shall roast into the scalding Fire, (4) and will be made to drink from a fiercely boiling spring. (5) They shall have no food except bitter dry thorns (6) which neither sustains, nor satisfy hunger. (7) (Other) faces on that day shall be happy, (8) with their striving well-pleased, (9) They shall be in a Garden lofty: (10) where they will hear no idle talk, (11) Wherein is a gushing spring, (12) And within it are couches placed on high, (13) and goblets laid out, (14) and cushions arrayed in rows, (15) and carpets spread out. (16) Will they not regard the camels, how they are created? (17) And how the heaven was raised up, (18) how the mountains are set firm, (19) how the earth was outstretched? (20) Therefore advise; indeed you are a proclaimer of advice. (The Holy Prophet is a Remembrance from Allah.) (21) You are not at all a guardian over them. (22) However, as for him who turns away, being bent on denying the truth, (23) Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment. (24) Indeed only towards Us is their return (25) Then verily, for Us will be their reckoning. (26)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
