Overwhelming (Al-Ghâshiyah)

In the name of Allah, Gracious, Merciful.

1Has the story reached you of the overwhelming event?

2Some faces that day will be humiliated.

3Laboring weary.

4They enter the blazing fire.

5They are given to drink of a boiling hot spring.

6No food will there be for them but a bitter Dhari1

7Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger.

8Faces that day will be joyful.

9Pleased with their striving.

10In a garden on high.

11Where they shall hear no vanity:

12Therein will be a bubbling spring:

13Therein will be thrones raised on high.

14Goblets placed.

15And cushions set in rows

16And rich carpets spread out.

17Do they not look at the camels how they are made?

18And at the sky, how it is raised high?

19And at the mountains, how they are fixed firm?

20And at the earth, how it is spread out?

21Therefore, give admonition for you are one to admonish.

22You are not one to manage affairs.

23But if any turn away and reject Allah,

24Allah will punish him with a mighty punishment.

25For to Us will be their return;

26Then it will be for Us to call them to account.

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim

1. According to Yusuf Ali, “It is a plant, bitter and thorny, loathsome in smell and appearance, which will neither give fattening nourishment to the body nor in any way satisfy the burning pangs of hunger, a fit plant for Hell, like Zaqqum”.
