Tafsir de vers (s): [1]
تَبَّتْ يَدَا أَبِي لَهَبٍ وَتَبَّ 1
¡ May the hands of Abū Lahab perish, and may he perish! 1 Abū Lahab was the wealthiest of the Prophet’s uncles and one of the Qurayshī leaders who most opposed the Prophet and persecuted his followers. “May [his] hands perish” is an idiomatic expression meaning, “May his power perish and all that he possesses.” Abū Lahab did not go forth to the Battle of Badr, but is reported to have died soon thereafter from a festering wound inflicted by his sister-in-law Umm al-Faḍl in retaliation for his abuse of one of her slaves who had become Muslim.
