Quran Chapter 102 - Striving for More - Pay Attention and See The Reality

This Meccan sura criticizes man’s preoccupation with worldly wealth and stresses that he will be brought to account on the Day of Resurrection.

In the name of God, the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy

1 Striving for more distracts you 2 until you go into your graves. [a] 3 No indeed! You will come to know. 4 No indeed! In the end you will come to know. 5 No indeed! If only you knew for certain. 6 You will most definitely see Hellfire, 7 you will see it with the eye of certainty. 8 On that Day, you will be asked about your pleasures.


a. Literally ‘until you visit the graves’. Their stay in the grave is like a short visit (cf. 46: 35).
