Al-Qaria The Holy Qur'an
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!).
