The Holy Qur'an/Al-Humaza

< The Holy Qur'an
Al-Asr The Holy Qur'an
104. Al-Humaza (The Gossipmonger) , translated by Abdullah Yusuf Ali

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

1 Woe to every (kind of) scandal-monger and-backbiter,

2 Who pileth up wealth and layeth it by,

3 Thinking that his wealth would make him last for ever!

4 By no means! He will be sure to be thrown into That which Breaks to Pieces,

5 And what will explain to thee That which Breaks to Pieces?

6 (It is) the Fire of (the Wrath of) God kindled (to a blaze),

7 The which doth mount (Right) to the Hearts:

8 It shall be made into a vault over them,

9 In columns outstretched.
