Chapter 111: The Flame or The Plaited Rope

Fire Show

In the name of God,
Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

1. Perish the hands of the Father of Flame! Perish he! 2. No profit to him from all his wealth, and all his gains! 3. Burnt soon will he be in a Fire of blazing Flame! 4. His wife shall carry the (crackling) wood — as fuel! — 5. A twisted rope of palm-leaf fiber round her (own) neck!
