Continuation of Chapter 88 Al-Ghashiyah (سورة الغاشية)
(The Overwhelming)

88:1
هَلْ أَتَاكَ حَدِيثُ الْغَاشِيَةِ
Has the story reached thee of the Overwhelming (Event)?
  • Gashiya: the thing or event that overshadows or overwhelms, that covers over or makes people lose their senses. In xii. 107, it is described as the "covering veil of the Wrath of Allah": where see n. 1790. The Day of Judgment is indicated, as the Event of overwhenning importance in which all our petty differences of this imperfect world are covered over and overwhelmed in a new world of perfect justice and truth.
