(Information in brackets is added to assist readers in the interpretation of the verse).

Quran 104:0 Verse 104:0 In the name of Allah, The Most Kind, The Most Merciful.


Quran 104:1 Verse 104:1 Misfortune is on every slanderer (who insults) and every person who spreads (evil) gossip (about other people).


Quran 104:2 Verse 104:2 (Misfortune is on every person) who gathers wealth and counts it (instead of using it for righteous deeds).


Quran 104:3 Verse 104:3 (They love their wealth so much that it is as if) such a person thinks that their wealth shall make them live forever.


Quran 104:4 Verse 104:4 No (such a person is wrong, it is not wealth that makes you live forever it is good deeds). Such a person (who misuses the wealth that was given to them by Allah or misuses the mouth that was given to them by Allah by slandering other people or by spread evil gossip) shall be thrown into the destroyer.


Comment 1. The misuse of wealth.

Quran 9:34 Verse 9:34 All you who believe. There are many of the (Jewish) rabbis and the (Christian) monks who use the wealth of humans falsely (not for Allah but for themselves such as by accepting bribes paid for making favourable judgements) and hinder (humans) from the way of Allah (by not correctly following the religion that Allah gave them). Those who hoard gold and silver and do not spend it in the way of Allah (such as by using it to help the poor), tell them of a painful punishment (in the Hereafter).


Quran 9:35 Verse 9:35 On the day (of Judgement) when it (all the hoarded silver and gold) shall be heated in the fire of hell Jahannam, it shall be branded on their foreheads and their flanks (sides) and their backs (and it shall be said to those that hoarded their wealth), “Here is what you hoarded for yourselves so taste (the punishment of the heat from) what you used to hoard.” 

Note 1. Quran 17:60 Verse 17:60 “.... We (Allah) warn (people to do what is good and avoid what is evil) and make them afraid (of Allah by describing the home for evil doers in Hell Fire Jahannam in the Hereafter) but it only increases them (some of the humans) in nothing but greater disobedience against Allah (and the commandment to do what is good and avoid what is evil).    

1a. What is righteousness?

What is a righteous life?

A righteous life is a life of good deeds, a life of seeking the truth and a life of patience.

1b. Belief without good deeds is a false belief in Allah.

Satan Shaitan believes in Allah but it is a false belief because Satan Shaitan does not do good deeds.

The wife of Prophet Lot Lut did not do good deeds because she followed the law of Sodom which mistreated visitors who came to that city.

Quran 6:158 Verse 6:158 "... belief in it (Allah and the Day of Resurrection and Judgement) shall not help any soul …. if in belief (he or she) did not earn good (by doing righteous deeds in their life). ....” 

Quran 41:8 Verse 41:8 “For those who believe and do good deeds, for them is an everlasting reward (in Paradise Jannah).” 


Quran 104:5 Verse 104:5 What can explain to you what the destroyer is?


Quran 104:6 Verse 104:6 It is the fire (in Hell Jahannam) that is ignited by Allah (on those in whose hearts there are evil deeds).
