1 . Woe unto every slandering traducer,
2 . Who hath gathered wealth (of this world) and arranged it.
3 . He thinketh that his wealth will render him immortal.
4 . Nay, but verily he will be flung to the Consuming One.
5 . Ah, what will convey unto thee what the Consuming One is!
6 . (It is) the fire of Allah, kindled,
7 . Which leapeth up over the hearts (of men).
8 . Lo! it is closed in on them
9 . In outstretched columns.
