Plato,

111.001-005
YUSUFALI: Perish the hands of the Father of Flame! Perish he!

No profit to him from all his wealth, and all his gains!

Burnt soon will he be in a Fire of Blazing Flame!

His wife shall carry the (crackling) wood - As fuel!-
A twisted rope of palm-leaf fibre round her (own) neck!

This is a gain another prophecy that God spoke of in the Quran - for those who do not believe that Muhammad is a prophet of God.

Father of Flame is the name of Muhammad uncle, his name in arabic (Abu Lahab) so it is wrong to translate it to father of flame, because his name is Abu Lahab, which is arabic name

Mohammad's uncle Abu Lahab was a fierce opposer and aggressor against Muhammad and his message and his followers, he abused him, he put thornes in his way, he stoned him, he made fires in his path where ever he went, He always named him a liar.

God in the Quran said that his wealth and all his gains will not keep him away from Hell.

This prophecy and this surah was revealed 10 years before the death of Abu Lahab. Abu Lahab could have simply shown that Muhammad and the Quran are wrong by accepting Islam and therefore there would be no need for such surah against him. but NO, he kept on against Muhammad until he met his death. - his death was by mystereous illness like a plague that made him rot for three days while alive. the people could not touch him to bury him, they used sticks to push him to the grave and then they hailed stones on him to cover him.

He died unbeliever and he deserved what is mentioned in the Surah. For 10 YEARS he had the opportunity to show that Muhammad and the Quran were wrong, but he did NOT and could NOT. and the surah proved Muhammad was right and Abu Lahab will go to HELL.

and by the way you would not understand the beauty of the Quran, because your heart is full of hatred.

The recitation of the Quran is prescribed by doctors in Germany for their patients.
