In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Woe to every slanderer and defamer,[1] who amasses wealth and keeps on counting it.[2] He thinks that his wealth will insure his status forever![3] By no means! He shall be thrown into Hotamah.[4] What will make you understand what Hotamah is?[5] It is the fire kindled to a blaze by Allah Himself.[6] The one which will rise right to the hearts,[7] closing in upon them from every side[8] in outstretched columns.[9]

104:[1-9]

The slanderer, defamer and stingy shall be thrown into the blazing fire

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* The slanderer, defamer and stingy shall be thrown into the blazing fire.

This Sürah condemns the evils which were prevalent among the materialistic hoarders of wealth in the pre-Islamic days. After stating this kind of ugly character, the ultimate end of such a people in the Hereafter is told. Both of these things (i. e., the character and one's fate in the Hereafter) are depicted in a way which makes the listener automatically reach the conclusion that such a man deserves to meet such an end. And since in the world, people of such character may not suffer and appear to be thriving instead, the occurrence of the Hereafter becomes absolutely inevitable.

If this Sürah is read in the sequence of the Sürahs beginning with Az-Zilzãl, one can fully understand the fundamental beliefs of Islam. In Sürah Az-Zilzãl, it was said that in the Hereafter, man’s full record will be placed before him and not an atom’s weight of good or evil done by him in the world will have been left unrecorded. In Sürah Al-'Ãdiyãt, attention was drawn to the plunder, loot, bloodshed and vandalism, prevailing in Arabia before Islam; then making the people realize, that the way the powers given by God were being abused, was indeed an expression of sheer ingratitude to Him and deserves punishment. In Sürah Al-Qãriah, after depicting the Resurrection, the people were warned that in the Hereafter, a man’s good or evil end will be dependent on whether the scale of his good deeds was heavier, or the scale of his evil deeds was heavier. In Sürah At- Takãthur the people were taken to task for their materialistic mentality because of which, they remained occupied in seeking increase in worldly benefits, pleasures, comforts and position. They were warned that they would have to render an account to their Rabb and Sustainer as to how they obtained it and how they used it. In Sürah Al-'Asr, it was declared that each member, each group and each community of mankind, even the entire world of humanity, was in manifest loss if its members were devoid of faith, righteous deeds and the practice of exhorting others to truth and patience. Immediately after this comes Sürah Al-Humazah, in which, after presenting a specimen of leadership of the pre-Islamic age of ignorance, the people are asked the question: “What should such character deserve, if not loss and perdition?”
