Until ye visit the graves.(2)
كَلّا سَوفَ تَعلَمونَ(3)
But nay, ye soon shall know (the reality).(3)
ثُمَّ كَلّا سَوفَ تَعلَمونَ(4)
Again, ye soon shall know!(4)
كَلّا لَو تَعلَمونَ عِلمَ اليَقينِ(5)
Nay, were ye to know with certainty of mind, (ye would beware!)(5)
لَتَرَوُنَّ الجَحيمَ(6)
Ye shall certainly see Hell-Fire!(6)
ثُمَّ لَتَرَوُنَّها عَينَ اليَقينِ(7)
