102. At-Takathur (Competition) , translated by Abdullah Yusuf Ali
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
1 The mutual rivalry for piling up (the good things of this world) diverts you (from the more serious things),
2 Until ye visit the graves.
3 But nay, ye soon shall know (the reality).
4 Again, ye soon shall know!
5 Nay, were ye to know with certainty of mind, (ye would beware!)
6 Ye shall certainly see Hell-Fire!
7 Again, ye shall see it with certainty of sight!
8 Then, shall ye be questioned that Day about the joy (ye indulged in!).
