.Sura 111 | The Flame |
    Yusuf Ali Pickthal Shakir  
  1 Perish the hands of the Father of Flame! Perish he! The power of Abu Lahab will perish, and he will perish. Perdition overtake both hands of Abu Lahab, and he will perish.  
  2 No profit to him from all his wealth, and all his gains! His wealth and gains will not exempt him. His wealth and what he earns will not avail him.  
  3 Burnt soon will he be in a Fire of Blazing Flame! He will be plunged in flaming Fire, He shall soon burn in fire that flames,  
  4 His wife shall carry the (crackling) wood - As fuel!- And his wife, the wood-carrier, And his wife, the bearer of fuel,  
  5 A twisted rope of palm-leaf fibre round her (own) neck! Will have upon her neck a halter of palm-fibre. Upon her neck a halter of strongly twisted rope.
