أَلۡهَٮٰكُمُ ٱلتَّكَاثُرُ

حَتَّىٰ زُرۡتُمُ ٱلۡمَقَابِرَ 

Until you visit the graves (i.e. till you die).

3.

كَلَّا سَوۡفَ تَعۡلَمُونَ 

Nay! You shall come to know!

4.

ثُمَّ كَلَّا سَوۡفَ تَعۡلَمُونَ 

Again, Nay! You shall come to know!

5.

كَلَّا لَوۡ تَعۡلَمُونَ عِلۡمَ ٱلۡيَقِينِ 

Nay! If you knew with a sure knowledge

(the end result of piling up, you would not have occupied yourselves in worldly things)

6.

لَتَرَوُنَّ ٱلۡجَحِيمَ 

Verily, You shall see the blazing Fire (Hell)!

7.

ثُمَّ لَتَرَوُنَّہَا عَيۡنَ ٱلۡيَقِينِ 

And again, you shall see it with certainty of sight!

8.

ثُمَّ لَتُسۡـَٔلُنَّ يَوۡمَٮِٕذٍ عَنِ ٱلنَّعِيمِ 

Then, on that Day, you shall be asked about the delight (you indulged in, in this world)!
