Quran 104 Verse 4 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Humazah ayat 4, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.


(104:4) Nay, he shall be thrown[4] into the Crusher.[5]

4. The word in the original is la yunbadhanna. Nabdh inArabic is used for throwing away a thing regarding it asworthless and mean. This by itself indicates that because ofhis wealth he thinks that he is a great man but on the DayOf Resurrection he will be hurled into Hell as a mean andcontemptible object.

5. The word hutamah in the original is from hatm, whichmeans to smash, crush and break into pieces. Hell has beendescribed by this epithet because it will crush and break topieces whatever is thrown into it because of its depth andits fire.
