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 Compassionate
Have you heard about the Overwhelming Event? (1) On that day the faces of some people will be humbly cast down, (2) be toiling and worn-out; (3) roasting at a scorching Fire (4) their drink shall be from a boiling spring. (5) They shall have no food except bitter dry thorns (6) Which doth not nourish nor release from hunger. (7) However, on that day the faces of other people will be happy. (8) well pleased with the result of their striving, (9) They shall be in a Garden lofty: (10) where they will hear no idle talk, (11) In it there shall be a flowing spring, (12) In which are high thrones. (13) and goblets laid out, (14) well-placed cushions, (15) and carpets spread out. (16) What, do they not reflect upon how the camel was created? (17) And at the sky - how it is raised? (18) And at the mountains, how they are rooted and fixed firm? (19) how the earth was outstretched? (20) Therefore do remind, for you are only a reminder. (21) You do not have full control over them. (22) But whoso is averse and disbelieveth, (23) In which case he will be punished by God with the severest punishment. (24) For to Us will be their return; (25) and then it is for Us to call them to account. (26)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
