سورة المسد

111. Al-Masadd

The Flame

Total verses: 5
Revealed in: Mecca

- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)

The surah that mentions the Palm Fibre rope that in Hellfire shall be twisted around the neck of the wife of the Prophet’s uncle, who bitterly opposed Islam; for she took great pride in wearing an ostentatious necklace she became known for and would slip by night to strew thorns and prickly plants in the Prophet’s path to injure his feet. It takes its name from verse 5 in which the phrase "ḥablun min masad" (meaning "a rope of palm fibre") occurs.
The surah is also known as: Abu Lahab, Fibre, Perish, The Flame, The Palm-Fibre Rope.
