111 – Al Lahab – The Flame

Abu Lahab, the father of flames, and his wife are used as an example of people who believed that they were independent of God, He had wealth, power, arrogance and a tongue as hot and sharp as flames. 
They used this to torment the Prophet and destroyed themselves in the process, teaching that by starting a fire harassing others, one can find oneself in one’s own   fire and neither wealth nor power will  assist.
