In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.  
Woe to every (kind of) scandal-monger and backbiter, 1
Who pileth up wealth and layeth it by, 2
Thinking that his wealth would make him last for ever! 3
By no means! He will be sure to be thrown into That which Breaks to Pieces, 4
And what will explain to thee That which Breaks to Pieces? 5
(It is) the Fire of Allah kindled (to a blaze), 6
The which doth mount (Right) to the Hearts: 7
It shall be made into a vault over them, 8
In columns outstretched. 9
