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 Merciful, the Compassionate
Hath there come unto thee the story of the Enveloping Event? (1) Many a face will be disgraced on that day. (2) Labouring, wearied out, (3) roasting at a scorching fire, (4) Given water from the boiling spring to drink. (5) they shall have no food but thorns, (6) which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger. (7) (Other) faces that Day will be joyful, (8) Well-pleased with their endeavour, (9) In the high empyrean, (10) Never hearing idle talk. (11) In it is a flowing spring. (12) Therein are thrones raised high, (13) And drinking-cups ready placed, (14) And cushions set in a row, (15) and rich carpets levelled out. (16) So do they not see the camel how it has been created? (17) And at the heaven, how it is raised? (18) how the mountains were hoisted, (19) And the earth, how it is made a vast expanse? (20) So, [O Prophet] exhort them: your task is only to exhort, (21) You are not charged to oversee them. (22) But whoso is averse and disbelieveth, (23) Allah will chastise him with the greatest chastisement. (24) Verily unto Us is their return. (25) and then it is for Us to call them to account. (26)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
