104 THE BACKBITER (1 – 9)

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

Woe unto every backbiter, slanderer, who has gathered riches and counted them over thinking his riches have made him immortal!

No indeed; he shall be thrust into the Crusher; and what shall teach thee what is the Crusher? The Fire of God kindled roaring over the hearts covered down upon them, in columns outstretched.
