Surah Al-Kawthar

Surah Al-Hadid 20

iʿ’lamū  annamā   l-hayatu   l-dun’yā   laibun   walahwun   wazīnatun   watafākhurun   baynakum
Know that the life of this world is but amusement and diversion and adornment and boasting among you

watakāthurun   fi   l-amwāli    wal-awlādi
and competition in increase of wealth and children

kamathali  ghaythin   a’jaba   l-kufāra   nabātuhu   thumma   yahīju   fatarāhu   mus’farran
like the example of a rain (causing) plant growth pleases the tillers, then it dries and you see it turned yellow

thumma  yakūnu  ḥuṭāman
then it becomes scattered debris

wafi   l-ākhirati   ʿadhābun   shadidun   wamaghfiratun   mina   l-lahi   wariḍ’wānun
And in the Hereafter, severe punishment and forgiveness and pleasure from Allah

wamā   l-hayatu   l-dun’yā  illā  matāʿu   l-ghurūri
And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion


Surah At-Takathur

alhākumu   l-takāthuru
The rivalry for piling up of worldly things diverts you

ḥattā   zur’tumu   l-maqābira
until you visit the graves

kallā   sawfa   taʿlamūna
Soon  you  will  know

thumma   kallā   sawfa   taʿlamūna
Then  you  will  soon  know

kallā  law  taʿlamūna  ʿil’ma  l-yaqīni
If you know with knowledge, with certainty

latarawunna   l-jaḥīma
Surely you will see Hellfire

thumma   latarawunnahā   ‘ayna   l-yaqīni
Then   you   shall  see it   with certainty

thumma  latus’alunna  yawma-idhin  ‘ani   l-naʿīmi
Then  surely  on  that  Day  you  shall  be asked  about  the  delight (indulged in this world)
