Juz 30
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 THERE COME unto thee the tiding of the Overshadowing Event? (1) Faces on that day humbled, (2) Labouring (hard), weary,- (3) Scorched by burning fire, (4) and will be made to drink from a fiercely boiling spring. (5) They will have no food except bitter thorn, (6) that will neither nourish nor satisfy their hunger. (7) Some faces on that Day will be radiant, (8) well-pleased with their striving. (9) They will live in an exalted garden (10) Wherein you shall not hear vain talk. (11) Wherein is a gushing spring, (12) And within it are couches placed on high, (13) and goblets set forth (14) cushions ranged, (15) and outspread carpets. (16) Have they not looked at how the camel is created, (17) And the heaven, how it is reared aloft, (18) And at the mountains - how they are erected? (19) how the earth was outstretched? (20) Remind them, for thou art but a remembrancer, (21) and are not invested with the authority to compel them. (22) Except whoever turns away and disbelieves (23) In which case he will be punished by God with the severest punishment. (24) To Us they will all return. (25) Ours is surely then to reckon with them. (26)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
