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

lahab - Palm Fibre

Revealed in Makkah


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

Tabbat yadaaa 'Abil Laha bin wa taab

Maa agna anhu maa luhuu wa maa kasab

Sa yasla Naaran zaata Lahab

Wam ra a'tuh: hammaa latal ha'tab

Fi jidi hab'lum mim-masad


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Perish the hands of the flame! Perish!

No profit to him from all his wealth and all his gains

Burnt soon will he be in a Fire of blazing flame!

His wife shall carry the wood as fuel

A twisted rope of palm leaf fibre around ger neck

This early Makkan Surah carries a general lesson that cruelity ultimately ruins itself. Mankind that rages against holy things are burnt by their own rage and hands that are instruments of their actions perish. Neither status nor wealth will save them and Women who are made of nobler emotions may feed unholy rage with fiercer fuel to their own deterament.
