The Rivalry in Worldly Increase – Tafsir

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Competition in [worldly] increase diverts you

You have let worldly competition in wealth, power, status etc divert you away from Allah’s worship.

Until you visit the graveyards

This diversion will continue until death suddenly takes you.

No! You are going to know

Then you will come to know that what you put forth for the next life was better for you.

Then no! You are going to know

And you will know that your preoccupation with this life was not beneficial.

No! If you only knew with knowledge of certainty

If you had certainty about death and the next life, you would remain focused.

You will surely see the Hellfire

You will come to see the Hellfire with your own eyes.

Then you will surely see it with the eye of certainty

On that Day, no doubt will remain, so prepare for that Day.

Then you will surely be asked that Day about pleasure

On that Day, Allah will question you about all the blessings you enjoyed, and whether or not you used them to please Allah.
