Surah Al Humazah

Surah Al-Humaza (Arabic: سورة الهمزة ) is the 104th sura of the Qur'an.

It was revealed regarding Akhnas ibn Shariq.

It condemns those who slander others, whether by speech or action, and imagine that their own wealth will keep them immune from death, and describes, in brief yet evocative phrases, the doom of Hell which awaits them.

according to Ibn Kathir, Muhammad bin Ka`b said that "it (the Fire) will devour every part of his body until it reaches his heart and comes to the level of his throat, then it will return to his body." The "columns" described in the final verse are interpreted as columns of fire by some authorities, as in the translation below, but as literal pillars of iron by some others.
