كـَلَّا لَوۡ تَعۡلَمُونَ عِلۡمَ ٱلۡيَقِينِNay! If you knew with a sure knowledge (the end result of piling up, you would not have been occupied yourselves in worldly things).

And certainty: the truth that Allah promised or death whose occurrence is certain, and the knowledge of certainty is the knowledge of the truth.

And on the authority of Anas bin Malik – may Allah be pleased with him – that the Messenger of Allah – may Allah’s prayers and peace be upon him – said: “If the son of Adam had a valley of gold, he would like to have two valleys, and his mouth will not fill his mouth, except for the earth. Hammad bin Salamah told us, on the authority of Thabit, on the authority of Anas, on the authority of Ubayy, he said: We used to see this from the Quran until it was revealed:{أَلْهاكُمُ التَّكاثُرُ}
