104. al-Humazah: The Slanderer

1 Woe unto every slandering traducer,

2 Who hath gathered wealth (of this world) and arranged it.

3 He thinketh that his wealth will render him immortal.

4 Nay, but verily he will be flung to the Consuming One.

5 Ah, what will convey unto thee what the Consuming One is!

6 (It is) the fire of Allah, kindled,

7 Which leapeth up over the hearts (of men).

8 Lo! it is closed in on them

9 In outstretched columns.
