بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

أَلْهَاكُمْ التَّكَاثُرُ (1)

[102:1] You are distracted by mutual competition in amassing (worldly benefits),

حَتَّى زُرْتُمْ الْمَقَابِرَ (2)

[102:2] until you reach the graves.

كَلاَّ سَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ (3)

[102:3] No! (This is not a correct attitude.) You will soon know (the reality).

ثُمَّ كَلاَّ سَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ (4)

[102:4] Again, you will soon know.

كَلاَّ لَوْ تَعْلَمُونَ عِلْمَ الْيَقِينِ (5)

[102:5] No! Only if you knew (it) with a sure knowledge!

لَتَرَوْنَ الْجَحِيمَ (6)

[102:6] You will certainly see the Hell,

ثُمَّ لَتَرَوْنَهَا عَيْنَ الْيَقِينِ (7)

[102:7] then you will see it with full certitude.

ثُمَّ لَتُسْأَلُنَّ يَوْمَئِذٍ عَنْ النَّعِيمِ (8)

[102:8] Then you will be asked about all the pleasures (you enjoyed in the world).
