and Allah said "And proclaim the pilgramage among men; they will come to thee on foot and on every kind of camel. Lean on account of Journeys through deep and distant mountain highways" Surah 22 ~ Al Hajj Part 27

humazah - scandal monger

Revealed in Makkah


Bismillah arak maan nira heem, Alhamdhulillahi Rabil Alamin; arak maan nira heem

Waylul - likulli Humazah - til - lumazah

Allazii jama - a maalanw - wa addadah

Yasabu ana maalahuu akhladah

Kallaa la - yum baz anna fil Hutamah

Wa maa adraka mal hutamah?

Naarullaahil muuqadah

Allati tat tali - u alal af - iadah

Innahaa alayhim mu'sadah

Fii amadim - muhammadah


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Woe to (every kind of) scandal monger and back biter

Who pile up wealth and lay it by

Thinking that his wealth would make him last forever

By no means! He will be sure to be thrown in to that which breaks to pieces

And what will explain to him that which breaks in to pieces?

(It is) The fire of Allah kindled

Which leaps straight in to the hearts of men

It shall be made in to a vault over them

In columns out stretched


This Makkan Surah clearily condemns any form of scandal mongering, back biting and hoarding of wealth as it destroys both the hearts and affection of mankind
