104. The Slanderer (Al-Humazah)[edit]

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

1 Woe to every slanderer, defamer!

2 Who amasses wealth and counts it --

3 He thinks that his wealth will make him abide.

4 Nay, he will certainly be hurled into the crushing disaster;

5 And what will make thee realize what the crushing disaster is?

6 It is the Fire kindled by Allah,

7 Which rises over the hearts.

8 Surely it is closed in on them,

9 In extended columns.
