Holy Quran Verses from Pickthall and Yusufali's Translation

Surah Lahab: Palm Fibre

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Yusufali:    Perish the hands of the Father of Flame! Perish he!
Pickthall:   The power of Abu Lahab will perish, and he will perish.
Yusufali:    No profit to him from all his wealth, and all his gains!
Pickthall:   His wealth and gains will not exempt him.
Yusufali:    Burnt soon will he be in a Fire of Blazing Flame!
Pickthall:   He will be plunged in flaming Fire,
Yusufali:    His wife shall carry the (crackling) wood - As fuel!-
Pickthall:   And his wife, the wood-carrier,
Yusufali:    A twisted rope of palm-leaf fibre round her (own) neck!
Pickthall:   Will have upon her neck a halter of palm-fibre.


Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
