Learn surah al-asr, quran recitation, Mount Hira

Surah At-Takathur (Rivalry In World Increase, Competition) is the 102nd surah of the Qur'an with 8 ayat.

After the bismillah, this surah is concerned with factionalism and schism amongst people. Disagreements between individuals and groups follows us "even until you visit the tombs". Three times in a row the surah warns the reader that "you shall know" that those who sow discord are headed towards Hell. Here, proper understanding is required for entrance into Paradise, and should one not attain this on Earth, one will receive the "eye of certainty" on the Day of Judgment, when "you shall be questioned...concerning true bliss".

Surah At-Takathur

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

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

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

Nay! You shall come to know!

Again, Nay! You shall come to know!

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

Verily, You shall see the blazing Fire (Hell)!

And again, you shall see it with certainty of sight!

Then, on that Day, you shall be asked about the delight (you indulged in, in this world)!
