111. Al-Masad (The Palm Fibre)

In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

1. Perish the two hands of Abû Lahab (an uncle of the Prophet), and perish he!

2. His wealth and his children (etc.) will not benefit him!

3. He will be burnt in a Fire of blazing flames!

4. And his wife too, who carries wood (thorns of Sadan which she used to put on the way of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) , or use to slander him).

5. In her neck is a twisted rope of Masad (palm fibre).
