.Sura 104 | The Slanderer |
    Yusuf Ali Pickthal Shakir  
  1 Woe to every (kind of) scandal-monger and-backbiter, Woe unto every slandering traducer, Woe to every slanderer, defamer,  
  2 Who pileth up wealth and layeth it by, Who hath gathered wealth (of this world) and arranged it. Who amasses wealth and considers it a provision (against mishap);  
  3 Thinking that his wealth would make him last for ever! He thinketh that his wealth will render him immortal. He thinks that his wealth will make him immortal.  
  4 By no means! He will be sure to be thrown into That which Breaks to Pieces, Nay, but verily he will be flung to the Consuming One. Nay! he shall most certainly be hurled into the crushing disaster,  
  5 And what will explain to thee That which Breaks to Pieces? Ah, what will convey unto thee what the Consuming One is! And what will make you realize what the crushing disaster is?  
  6 (It is) the Fire of (the Wrath of) Allah kindled (to a blaze), (It is) the fire of Allah, kindled, It is the fire kindled by Allah,  
  7 The which doth mount (Right) to the Hearts: Which leapeth up over the hearts (of men). Which rises above the hearts.  
  8 It shall be made into a vault over them, Lo! it is closed in on them Surely it shall be closed over upon them,  
  9 In columns outstretched. In outstretched columns. In extended columns.
