surah humazah and the benefit of its recitation

ِبِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

وَيْلٌ لِكُلِّ هُمَزَةٍ لُمَزَةٍ (1) الَّذِي جَمَعَ مَالًا وَعَدَّدَهُ (2) يَحْسَبُ أَنَّ مَالَهُ أَخْلَدَهُ (3) كَلَّا لَيُنْبَذَنَّ فِي الْحُطَمَةِ (4) وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا الْحُطَمَةُ (5) نَارُ اللَّهِ الْمُوقَدَةُ (6) الَّتِي تَطَّلِعُ عَلَى الْأَفْئِدَةِ (7) إِنَّهَا عَلَيْهِمْ مُؤْصَدَةٌ (8) فِي عَمَدٍ مُمَدَّدَةٍ (9)


Surah Humazah was revealed on our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) in Mecca. Surah Al Humazah also has its own name in English which is “the Slanderer, or the backbiter.” The Holy Quran contains 114 Surah, and it is the 104th one of them. This great Surah consists of 9 verses that started with talking about people who show the defections of God creations.

surah humazah translation_Sahih international:

1. There will be torment from Allah for people who harm other people in their lives. 2. People who live only to collect money. 3. Those people think that this money will make them live forever. 4. No doubt, they will be in the fire of the Hereafter. 5. Do you know this fire? 6. This is the raging fire that was created by Allah. 7. This fire will know the types of hearts (it has another explanation). 8. It is imposed on them, and there will be no way out. 9. There will be iron columns. Simple explanation of Surah Al Humazah: This Surah reflects a true, and realistic image of ancient and contemporary society. And this realistic and true image is collecting money, and thinking that this money is the most valuable thing in life. To be fair money is important, but it isn’t the most valuable thing in our life. People who think that money is of great value, think also it can change their lives, and maintain eternity. And the person who does these bad things will be thrown into the fire of the Hereafter on the day of Judgement. The Fire in the Hereafter is very burning, its fuel is the bodies of bad people, and from its severity of the burning it burns hearts after the bodies were burned. They can’t get out from this burning fire. We ask Allah to relieve us from the Fire, and drag us from it.

The virtue of studying surah humazah:

The virtue of reciting this great Surah will be shown when we read what said by our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW): “He who recites this Surah will be rewarded ‘ten good deeds’ as many as the number of those who mocked Muhammad (S) and his companions”. We can conclude the main topic of this Surah and say that Every Slanderer And The One Who Collects Wealth And Do Not Spend In Good Cause Will Be Put In Fire Columns. And there will be no way out.
