Surah At-Takathur, Verse 1:
أَلْهَاكُمُ التَّكَاثُرُ

The mutual rivalry for piling up of worldly things diverts you,

Verse 2:
حَتَّىٰ زُرْتُمُ الْمَقَابِرَ

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

Verse 3:
كَلَّا سَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ

Nay! You shall come to know!

Verse 4:
ثُمَّ كَلَّا سَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ

Again, Nay! You shall come to know!

Verse 5:
كَلَّا لَوْ تَعْلَمُونَ عِلْمَ الْيَقِينِ

Nay! If you knew with a sure knowledge (the end result of piling up, you would not have occupied yourselves in worldly things)

(English – Mohsin Khan)
