104. The Slanderer


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

  1. Woe to every (kind of) scandal-mongerand-backbiter,

  2. Who pileth up wealth and layeth it by,

  3. Thinking that his wealth would make himlast for ever!

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

  5. And what will explain to thee That whichBreaks to Pieces?

  6. (It is) the Fire of (the Wrath of) Allahkindled (to a blaze),

  7. The which doth mount (Right) to theHearts:

  8. It shall be made into a vault over them,

  9. In columns outstretched.
