Due to his hostility towards Islam, Allah sent down a surah, the Al-Masadd. Its English translation by Pickthall is as follows:
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.
1. The power of Abu Lahab will perish, and he will perish.
2. His wealth and gains will not exempt him.
3. He will be plunged in flaming Fire,
4. And his wife, the wood-carrier,
5. Will have upon her neck a halter of palm-fibre.
