The Palm Fiber
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
May the hands of Abu Lahab be ruined, and ruined is he.
The hands and actions of Abu Lahab are in ruin and destruction due to the harm he
caused the Prophet (peace be upon him).
His wealth will not avail him or that which he gained.
His wealth will not help him or protect him from Allah’s punishment.
He will [enter to] burn in a Fire of [blazing] flame
His final place will be the Hellfire, a place with huge flames.
And his wife—the carrier of firewood
Abu Lahab’s wife too will be punished for the harm she used to cause the Prophet
(peace be upon him). It is said she would throw thorns in his way.
Around her neck is a rope of fiber.
And the rope she was spinning of fiber will become a rope with which she is punished.
