Quran 104 Verse 2 Explanation
For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Humazah ayat 2, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.
(104:2) who amasses wealth and counts it over and again.
2. This second sentence after the first sentence by itself gives the meaning that he slanders others because of his pride of wealth. The words jama a malan for collecting money suggest the abundance of wealth; then the words counting it over and over again depict the person’s miserliness and his selfish hoarding of wealth.
The tafsir of Surah Humazah verse 2 by Ibn Kathir is unavailable here.
Please refer to Surah Humazah ayat 1 which provides the complete commentary from verse 1 through 9.
