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 benevolent, ever-merciful
Hast thou received the story of the Enveloper? 1 Some faces that Day shall be downcast with fear, 2 Laboring, toiling, 3 about to enter a glowing fire, 4 watered at a boiling fountain, 5 They shall have no food but of thorns, 6 Which shall neither nourish nor avail against hunger. 7 However, on that day the faces of other people will be happy. 8 Well-pleased because of their striving, 9 In a lofty garden, 10 hearing there no babble; 11 therein a running fountain, 12 raised couches, 13 And goblets ready placed! 14 And cushions ranged 15 and rich carpets levelled out. 16 Have they not looked at how the camel is created, 17 And the heaven, how it is raised? 18 And the hills, how they are set up? 19 And at the Earth, how it is spread out? 20 So, [O Prophet] exhort them: your task is only to exhort, 21 Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs. 22 Except whoever turns away and disbelieves 23 Allah will chastise him with the greatest chastisement. 24 Surely to Us is their return; 25 Ours is surely then to reckon with them. 26
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
