(9) (101:9) his shall be the deep pit for a dwelling. *5
*5) The words in the original a"re: ammu hu hawiyah: "his mother will be hawiyah. " Hawiyah is from hawa, which means to fall from a height to a depth, and bawiyah is the deep pit into which something falls. Hell has been called Hawiyah because it will be very deep and the culprits will be thrown into it from the height. As for the words, "his mother will be Hawiyah ", they mean: Just as the mother's lap is the child's abode, so Hell will be the culprits' only abode in the Hereafter.
