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 Gracious, Most Merciful
Certainly the news of the calamity that will overwhelm has come to you! (1) Faces on that day humbled, (2) labouring, weary, (3) they shall enter a burning Fire (4) They will be given to drink from a boiling spring, (5) They shall have no food except bitter dry thorns (6) Which shall neither nourish nor avail against hunger. (7) Many faces will be joyous on that day, (8) well pleased with their striving, (9) In the high empyrean, (10) Wherein you shall not hear vain talk. (11) Within it is a flowing spring. (12) And within it are couches placed on high, (13) and goblets placed ready, (14) And cushions set in rows, (15) And silken carpets spread. (16) What, do they not reflect upon how the camel was created? (17) And at the heaven, how it is raised? (18) and on the mountains, how they are firmly set up, (19) And the earth how it has been spread out? (20) So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder. (21) Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs. (22) However, he who 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) Then it will be for Us to call them to account. (26)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
