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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
HAS NEWS OF the Overpowering Event reached you? (1) Some faces that Day shall be downcast with fear, (2) toiling [under burdens of sin,] worn out [by fear,] (3) roasting at a scorching Fire (4) Made to drink from a boiling spring. (5) They will have no food except bitter thorn, (6) Which will neither nourish nor avail against hunger. (7) (Whereas other) faces on that Day will be joyful, (8) With their effort [they are] satisfied (9) In a Garden on high, (10) wherein they shall hear no vain talk. (11) There is a stream of running water in it; (12) In which are high thrones. (13) And goblets set at hand (14) And cushions set in rows, (15) And rich carpets (all) spread out. (16) DO, THEN, they [who deny resurrection] never gaze at the clouds pregnant with water, [and observe] how they are created? (17) how the heavens are raised up high, (18) And at the mountains, how firmly they are reared? (19) how the earth was outstretched? (20) Then remind them! Thou art only a reminder; (21) thou canst not compel them [to believe]. (22) But whosoever will turn back and disbelieve (23) Allah will punish them with the greatest punishment. (24) Indeed only towards Us is their return (25) then upon Us shall rest their reckoning. (26)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
