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
Have you heard about the Overwhelming Event? 1 Some faces will on that Day be downcast, 2 Labouring (hard in the worldly life by worshipping others besides Allah), weary (in the Hereafter with humility and disgrace). 3 they shall enter a burning Fire 4 Given to drink of a spring fiercely boiling. 5 no food for them except thorny plants 6 Which will neither fatten nor avail against hunger. 7 Faces on that Day shall be delighted, 8 With their effort [they are] satisfied 9 They shall be in a Garden lofty: 10 where they will hear no idle talk, 11 There is a stream of running water in it; 12 Within it are couches raised high 13 And drinking-cups ready placed, 14 and cushions ranged, 15 and outspread carpets. 16 So do they not see the camel how it has been created? 17 and on the sky, how it is raised aloft, 18 And at the mountains - how they are erected? 19 And the earth, how it was spread out? 20 So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder. 21 and are not invested with the authority to compel them. 22 But whoso is averse and disbelieveth, 23 Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment. 24 Certainly, it is to Us that they will return. 25 Ours is surely then to reckon with them. 26
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
