Explanation of Surah No 104 Al-Humazah ( The Slander)
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
This also is an early Meccan Surah.
This Surah condemns all sorts of scandals, backbiting, taunting and selfish, hoarding of wealth and the man's meanness which truly destroy the hearts and affections of men
In the society of Mecca those days the Pagan Mecca possessed very bad character and were arrogant. They were rich Arabs but very mean. They used to count and hoard their money in fear of parting with it. They used to like back biting, mimicry, taunting. They used to enjoy creating troubles and create fight between two parties. In fact they were true example of scandal mongers. They were under the impression that their collection of wealth going to remain with them forever.
Therefore in this Surah Allah points out as what will be the end of them. Have they ever thought about it? They have disbelief in the Day of Judgments and have forgotten about it.
Allah says that He truly hates these types of people and has kept for them a deep special Blazing Fire for their punishments. This Fire will search the motives and intensions of each criminal and the depth of their crimes so they will be thrown in Allah's Fire of Hell, which will break them into pieces.
In their worldly life they were so arrogant and mean and never spent their wealthy in the good cause of Allah. Therefore they will be thrown with great hat rated in this deep Fire. They will be suffocated and choked for this volt of Fire will cover them all over and its big strong columns will extend on a very large area. There is no chance to escape from it. They might have collected the worldly gains and felt very high but on the Day of Account they will be on total loss. They will be kept burning and will have no end for their miseries.
