;

1 . Woe to every (kind of) scandal-monger and-backbiter,

2 . Who pileth up wealth and layeth it by,

3 . Thinking that his wealth would make him last for ever!

4 . By no means! He will be sure to be thrown into That which Breaks to Pieces,

5 . And what will explain to thee That which Breaks to Pieces?

6 . (It is) the Fire of (the Wrath of) Allah kindled (to a blaze),

7 . The which doth mount (Right) to the Hearts:

8 . It shall be made into a vault over them,

9 . In columns outstretched.
