Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah)
26 verses, revealed in Mecca after Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhaareyaat) before The Cave (Al-Kahf)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Has there reached you the report of the Overwhelming [event]? (1) Some faces that Day shall be downcast with fear, (2) laboring, wornout, (3) about to enter a glowing fire, (4) Given to drink of a spring fiercely boiling. (5) They will have no food except bitter thorn, (6) which neither sustains, nor satisfy hunger. (7) In that day other faces will be calm, (8) Pleased with their striving,- (9) In a high Garden (10) where they will hear no idle talk. (11) with a flowing spring, (12) In which are high thrones. (13) And goblets set at hand (14) And cushions ranged (15) and outspread carpets. (16) Do they not look at the Camels, how they are made?- (17) how the heavens are raised up high, (18) And the mountains: how they were fixed? (19) And the earth how it has been spread out? (20) And so, [O Prophet,] exhort them; thy task is only to exhort: (21) thou canst not compel them [to believe]. (22) But whoever will turn away (from the Truth), (23) Allah will punish him with a mighty Punishment, (24) for behold, unto Us will be their return, (25) Then indeed only upon Us is their reckoning. (26)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
