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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Has there come to you the narration of the overwhelming (i.e. the Day of Resurrection); (1) Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated (in the Hell-fire, i.e. the faces of all disbelievers, Jews and Christians, etc.). (2) labouring, toilworn, (3) The while they enter the Blazing Fire,- (4) The while they are given, to drink, of a boiling hot spring, (5) they shall have no food but thorns, (6) Which doth not nourish nor release from hunger. (7) (Other) faces on that day shall be happy, (8) Pleased with their striving,- (9) In a high Garden. (10) hearing there no babble; (11) There is a stream of running water in it; (12) Therein will be thrones raised high, (13) And drinking-cups ready placed, (14) And cushions set in rows, (15) And silken carpets spread. (16) Have they not looked at how the camel is created, (17) how heaven was lifted up, (18) And at the mountains, how they are rooted and fixed firm? (19) And the earth how it has been spread out? (20) So, [O Prophet] exhort them: your task is only to exhort, (21) You are not a warden over them, (22) Other than him who turns his back and denies, (23) Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment. (24) For to Us will be their return; (25) Then indeed, upon Us is their account. (26)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
