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.
