Surah 104. Al-Humaza (The Traducer, The Gossipmonger)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
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.
- How should one answer a person who hurts his feelings among other people and who demoralizes him?
- Are the concepts "humaza" and "lumaza" in the chapter of al-Humaza related to the rich? Piling up wealth is mentioned in the verses.
- What should we do if someone near/with us is being mocked at?
- What is the penalty for oppressing with the tongue?
- Could you give information on stinginess?
- What is Talebearing? What does Islam say about it? What is the difference between Backbiting and Talebearing?
- What are the types of backbiting? Why and to what extent is backbiting bad?
