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
The virtue of studying surah humazah:
The virtue of reciting this great Surah will be shown when

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
And there will be no way out.
