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, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Have you heard the story of the overwhelming event (the Day of Judgment)? (1) [Some] faces, that Day, will be humbled, (2) toiling [under burdens of sin,] worn out [by fear,] (3) about to enter a glowing fire, (4) Made to drink water from the boiling hot spring. (5) There is no food for them except thorns of fire. (6) Which shall neither nourish nor avail against hunger. (7) [Other] faces, that Day, will show pleasure. (8) well-pleased with [the fruit of] their striving, (9) They will live in an exalted garden (10) Where they shall neither hear harmful speech nor falsehood, (11) Therein will be a running spring, (12) and raised couches, (13) And drinking-cups ready placed, (14) And cushions set in rows, (15) And rich carpets (all) spread out. (16) What, do they not consider how the camel was created, (17) and on the sky, how it is raised aloft, (18) how the mountains were hoisted, (19) And the earth, how it was spread out? (20) So, [O Prophet] exhort them: your task is only to exhort, (21) and are not invested with the authority to compel them. (22) But whoso is averse and disbelieveth, (23) Then Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment. (24) To Us is surely their returning; (25) Then it will be for Us to call them to account. (26)
Almighty God's Truth.
