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, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Has there reached you the report of the Overwhelming [event]? (1) (Some) faces on that day shall be downcast, (2) troubled and tired as a result of their deeds in the past. (3) roasting at a scorching Fire (4) given to drink from a boiling spring. (5) they shall have no food but thorns, (6) Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger. (7) (Other) faces that Day will be joyful, (8) well-pleased with [the fruit of] their striving, (9) In a lofty Paradise. (10) Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity: (11) therein a running fountain, (12) and raised couches, (13) Goblets set, (14) and cushions ranged, (15) and outspread carpets. (16) Will they not then consider the camels, how they are created? (17) And the heaven how it has been raised? (18) And at the mountains, how they are rooted and fixed firm? (19) And the earth, how it is spread? (20) So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder. (21) You are not a dictator over them. (22) But he who turns his back, and disbelieves, (23) God will punish them with the greatest torment. (24) Lo! unto Us is their return (25) Then indeed, upon Us is their account. (26)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
