Soorah Al-Masad (The Palm Fibre)

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
1.  Perish the two hands of Aboo Lahab (an uncle of the Prophet), and perish he! [1]
2.  His wealth and his children (etc.) will not benefit him!
3.  He will be burnt in a Fire of blazing flames!
4.  And his wife too, who carries wood (thorns of Sa'daan which she used to put on the way of the Prophet (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam), or use to slander him). [2]
5.  In her neck is a twisted rope of Masad (palm fibre). [3]

[1] (111):1 Narrated Ibn 'Abbaas (radi-Allaahu 'anhu):
When the Verse: 'And warn your tribe (O Muhammad sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) of near kindred.' (26):214 was revealed, Allaah's Messenger (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) went out, and when he had ascended As-Safaa mountain, he shouted, 'Ya Sabaahaah!' * The people said, 'What is it?' Then they gathered around him, whereupon he said, 'Do you see? If I inform you that cavalrymen are proceeding up the side of this mountain, will you believe me?' They said, 'We have never heard you telling a lie.' Then he said, 'I am a plain warner to you of a coming severe punishment.' Aboo Lahab said, 'May you perish! You gathered us only for this reason?' Then Aboo Lahab went away. So (Soorah Al-Masad) 'Perish the hands of Aboo Lahab!' was revealed. (111):1. [Saheeh Al-Bukharee, Vol. 6, Hadeeth No. 495]
* "Ya Sabaahaah!" is an Arabic expression used when one appeals for help or draws the attention of others to some danger.
[2] (111):4 "And his wife too, who carries wood." Mujaahid said, "Carries the wood" means that she used to slander (the Prophet sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) and goes about with calumnies.
[3] (111):5 "In her neck is a twisted rope of palm fibre, i.e. the chain which is in the Fire (of Hell)." [Saheeh Al-Bukharee, Vol. 6, Ch. 356, P.469]

[Imaam Qurtubee says in the Tafseer of the (V. 17:45)]:

Narrated Sa'eed bin Jubaair (radi-Allaahu 'anhu):
"When Soorah No. 111 (Al-Masad) was revealed, the wife of Aboo Lahab came looking out for the Prophet (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) while Aboo Bakr (radi-Allaahu 'anhu) was sitting beside him. Aboo Bakr said to the Prophet (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) 'I wish if you get aside (or go away) as she is coming, to us, she may harm you'. The Prophet (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said: 'There will be a screen set between me and her.' So she did not see him (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam). She said to Aboo Bakr: 'Your companion is saying poetry against me.' Aboo Bakr said: 'By Allaah he does not say peotry.' She said: 'Do you believe that.' Then she left. Aboo Bakr said, 'O Allaah's Messenger! She did not see you'. The Prophet (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said: 'An angel was screening me from her.' " [This Hadeeth is quoted in Masnad Aboo Ya'la]
It is said that if the Verse (17):45 is recited by a real believer (of Islaamic Monotheism) he will be screened from a disbeliever. (Allaah knows best). (Tafseer Al-Qurtubee, Vol. 10, Page 269).
