Number 111 Surah Al-Masad (The Palm Fiber)

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, 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 (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) , or use to slander him).

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