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 COME unto thee the tiding of the Overshadowing Event? (1) On that Day faces shall be humbled, (2) toiling [under burdens of sin,] worn out [by fear,] (3) (Yet) Going into the blazing fire. (4) Made to drink from a boiling spring. (5) no food for them but cactus thorn (6) unfattening, unappeasing hunger. (7) Many faces will be joyous on that day, (8) well-pleased with [the fruit of] their striving, (9) In an elevated garden, (10) In which they will not hear any lewd speech. (11) A gushing fountain shall be there (12) Therein will be Thrones (of dignity), raised on high, (13) And cups put in place (14) cushions ranged, (15) and outspread carpets. (16) So do they not see the camel how it has been created? (17) And at the sky, how it is raised aloft? (18) And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?- (19) And at the earth, how it is spread out? (20) So remind them (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)), you are only a one who reminds. (21) You are not a watcher over them; (22) But whoever turns back and denies the truth, (23) Allah will punish them 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 God the Almighty.
