afsir Surat al-Masad (no.111) – Session 3: Tafsir – The effect of our good & bad deeds
We had an exciting discussion on the meaning of rejection, and what the use of wealth is in the hereafter.
Al-Masad (Arabic: (meaning: “Twisted Strands” or “The Palm Fiber”) is the 111th chapter (surah) of the Quran. It has 5 ayat or verses and recounts the punishments that Abu Lahab and his wife will suffer in Hell. May the hands of Abu Lahab be ruined, and ruined, is he. His wealth will not avail him or that which he gained. He will burn in a Fire of flame and his wife, bearing wood, with a rope of twisted strands on her neck.
A study on Quranic manuscripts within the Vatican Library noted the titles Lahab (Flame); masad; al-Lahab; and Abu Lahab. In the 1730s the chapter title was known as Abu Laheb by translator George Sale.
