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
Has the news of the overwhelming event reached you? (1) Some faces will on that Day be downcast, (2) Toiling, weary, (3) they shall burn in a Scorching Fire; (4) and will be made to drink from a fiercely boiling spring. (5) no food for them except thorny plants (6) Which doth not nourish nor release from hunger. (7) Many faces will be joyous on that day, (8) Pleased with their striving,- (9) In an elevated garden, (10) wherein they will not hear any vain talk. (11) There is a stream of running water in it; (12) raised couches, (13) And chosen goblets. (14) cushions ranged, (15) and rich carpets levelled out. (16) Will they not then consider the camels, how they are created? (17) And at the Sky, how it is raised high?- (18) how the mountains were hoisted, (19) And the earth, how it is spread? (20) So, [O Prophet] exhort them: your task is only to exhort, (21) Thou art not over them a warden. (22) However, as for him who turns away, being bent on denying the truth, (23) Allah will punish them with the greatest punishment. (24) Verily, to Us will be their return; (25) Ours is surely then to reckon with them. (26)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
