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]

2. This second sentence after the first sentence by itselfgives the meaning that he slanders others because of hispride of wealth. The words jama a malan for collectingmoney suggest the abundance of wealth; then the wordscounting it over and over again depict the person’smiserliness and his selfish hoarding of wealth.
