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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Has there reached you the report of the Overwhelming [event]? (1) On that day (many) faces will be downcast, (2) labouring, toilworn, (3) The while they enter the Blazing Fire,- (4) given to drink from a boiling spring. (5) They will have no food except bitter thorn, (6) which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger. (7) Many faces will be joyous on that day, (8) well pleased with the result of their striving, (9) In a lofty garden, (10) Where they hear no idle speech, (11) In it there shall be a flowing spring, (12) Therein will be Thrones (of dignity), raised on high, (13) Goblets set, (14) and cushions arrayed (15) and carpets spread out. (16) Look they not at the camels, how they are created? (17) how the heavens are raised up high, (18) how the mountains were hoisted, (19) how the earth was outstretched? (20) Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish. (21) You are not at all a guardian over them. (22) As for those who turn their back and disbelieve, (23) Allah will chastise him with the greatest chastisement. (24) Verily, to Us will be their return; (25) And Ours their reckoning. (26)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
