The Holy Qur'an (Maulana Muhammad Ali)/111. The Flame
111. The Flame (Al-Lahab)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
1 Abu Lahab's hands will perish and he will perish.
2 His wealth and that which he earns will not avail him.
3 He will burn in fire giving rise to flames --
4 And his wife the bearer of slander;
5 Upon her neck a halter of twisted rope!
