Woe and destruction to those who backbite, scorn and mock the believers, looking for their faults.
Who collects wealth and counts it

He thinks that his wealth will make him immortal

No! He will surely be thrown into the Crusher

It is the fire of Allah, fueled

Indeed, Hellfire will be closed down upon them
The Fire will surround them from all sides so that there is no escape.
