Ayah Text in عربي, English (Yusuf Ali translation), عربي (بدون تشكيل) and transliteration

The mutual rivalry for piling up (the good things of this world) diverts you (from the more serious things),
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم ألهاكم التكاثر
Al haaku mut takathur

Until ye visit the graves.
حتى زرتم المقابر
Hatta zurtumul-maqaabir

But nay, ye soon shall know (the reality).
كلا سوف تعلمون
Kalla sawfa ta’lamoon

Again, ye soon shall know!
ثم كلا سوف تعلمون
Thumma kalla sawfa ta’lamoon

Nay, were ye to know with certainty of mind, (ye would beware!)
كلا لو تعلمون علم اليقين
Kalla law ta’lamoona ‘ilmal yaqeen

Ye shall certainly see Hell-Fire!
لترون الجحيم
Latara-wun nal jaheem

Again, ye shall see it with certainty of sight!
ثم لترونها عين اليقين
Thumma latara wunnaha ‘ainal yaqeen

Then, shall ye be questioned that Day about the joy (ye indulged in!).
ثم لتسألن يومئذ عن النعيم
Thumma latus alunna yauma-izin ‘anin na’eem
