1
تَبَّتْ يَدَا أَبِي لَهَبٍ وَتَبَّ
Perdition overtake both hands of Abu Lahab, and he will perish.

2
مَا أَغْنَىٰ عَنْهُ مَالُهُ وَمَا كَسَبَ
His wealth and what he earns will not avail him.

3
سَيَصْلَىٰ نَارًا ذَاتَ لَهَبٍ
He shall soon burn in fire that flames,

4
وَامْرَأَتُهُ حَمَّالَةَ الْحَطَبِ
And his wife, the bearer of fuel,

5
فِي جِيدِهَا حَبْلٌ مِنْ مَسَدٍ
Upon her neck a halter of strongly twisted rope.
