AL-HUMAZAH

The Scandal-monger

الهمزة

Meccan (surah 104 • 9 ayahs)

»The surah that opens with a threat of impending affliction and grief to THE SCANDAL-MONGER or the slanderous reviler, one who, in greediness of wealth and acclaim, defames others. It takes its name from “the slanderer” (humazah) mentioned in verse 1. The surah condemns the greedy backbiter and gives a description of Hell.«

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH,

THE ALL-BENEFICENT, THE ALL-MERCIFUL.
