.Sura 102 | Vying in Abundance |
    Yusuf Ali Pickthal Shakir  
  1 The mutual rivalry for piling up (the good things of this world) diverts you (from the more serious things), Rivalry in worldly increase distracteth you Abundance diverts you,  
  2 Until ye visit the graves. Until ye come to the graves. Until you come to the graves.  
  3 But nay, ye soon shall know (the reality). Nay, but ye will come to know! Nay! you shall soon know,  
  4 Again, ye soon shall know! Nay, but ye will come to know! Nay! Nay! you shall soon know.  
  5 Nay, were ye to know with certainty of mind, (ye would beware!) Nay, would that ye knew (now) with a sure knowledge! Nay! if you had known with a certain knowledge,  
  6 Ye shall certainly see Hell-Fire! For ye will behold hell-fire. You should most certainly have seen the hell;  
  7 Again, ye shall see it with certainty of sight! Aye, ye will behold it with sure vision. Then you shall most certainly see it with the eye of certainty;  
  8 Then, shall ye be questioned that Day about the joy (ye indulged in!). Then, on that day, ye will be asked concerning pleasure. Then on that day you shall most certainly be questioned about the boons.
