Abdul Wahab


Palm Fibre


May the hands of Abu Lahab be ruined
He will lose all whatever he gained
He will be in the flaming fire,
So, his wife the fuel carrier,
Around her neck a twisted cord of palm fibre.

    nice effort,
    but this is the accepted and universally recognized translation
    May God guide us all to the righteous path...amin.

    Surah (Chapter) 111, Verses 1-5, Pickthal translation:
    1 the power of Abu Lahab will perish and he will perish.
    2 his wealth and gains will not exempt him.
    3 he will be plunged in flaming fire,
    4 and his wife, the wood-carrier,
    5 will have upon her neck a halter (twisted rope) of palm-fiber. (Report) Reply

    Good translation and recall the lesson behind the words,
    To tell the mistakes that he made, by his own choice, by his own hand
    and remind us as fueling badness to spread will receive bad things
    Good initiative to translate and share with others_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply
