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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Hath there come unto thee the story of the Enveloping Event? (1) On that day the faces of some people will be humbly cast down, (2) labouring, weary, (3) They shall roast into the scalding Fire, (4) The while they are given, to drink, of a boiling hot spring, (5) They will have no food except bitter thorn, (6) Which will neither fatten nor avail against hunger. (7) (Other) faces that Day will be joyful, (8) with their striving well-pleased, (9) They shall be in a Garden lofty: (10) Where they hear no idle speech, (11) Countless springs will flow therein, (12) And within it are couches placed on high, (13) and prepared goblets, (14) And cushions lined up (15) and well spread carpets. (16) So do they not see the camel how it has been created? (17) how the heavens are raised up high, (18) And at the mountains, how they are rooted and fixed firm? (19) And at the earth, how it is spread out? (20) Remind them, for thou art but a remembrancer, (21) and are not invested with the authority to compel them. (22) However, he who turns away and disbelieves - (23) Allah will chastise him with the most terrible chastisement. (24) Verily, to Us will be their return; (25) And Ours their reckoning. (26)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
