The Holy Qur'an (Maulana Muhammad Ali)/104. The Slanderer
104. The Slanderer (Al-Humazah)
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.
