Firman Allah S.W.T.:
 Bermegah-megah telah melalaikan kamu,[a]
 sampai kamu masuk ke dalam kubur.
 Sekali-kali tidak! Kelak kamu akan mengetahui (akibat perbuatanmu itu),
 kemudian sekali-kali tidak! Kelak kamu akan mengetahui.
 Sekali-kali tidak! Sekiranya kamu mengetahui dengan pasti,
 nescaya kamu benar-benar akan melihat neraka Jahim,
 kemudian kamu benar-benar akan melihatnya dengan mata kepala sendiri,
 kemudian kamu benar-benar akan ditanya pada hari itu tentang kenikmatan (yang megah di dunia itu).
[Surah at-Takatsur, 102: 1-8]
[a] Bermegah-megahan dalam soal banyak anak, harta, pengikut, kemuliaan, & sebagainya, telah melalaikan kamu dari ketaatan kepada Allah.
Terjemahan dalam Bahasa Inggeris:
 The mutual rivalry (for piling up of worldly things) diverts you,
 Until you visit the graves (i.e. till 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 been 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 delights[b] (you indulged in, in this world)!
[Surah at-Takatsur, 102: 1-8]
[b] Narrated Abu Hurairah r.a.:
Once during a day or a night, Allah’s Messenger PBUH came out & found Abu Bakr & ‘Umar r.a.h., he said: “What has brought you out of your homes at this hour?”
They replied: “Hunger, O Allah’s Messenger.”
He said: “By Him (Allah) in Whose Hand my soul is, I too have come out for the same reason for which you have come out.”
Then he PBUH said to them (both): “Come along!”
And he went along with them to a man from the Ansar but they did not find him in his house. The wife of that man saw the Prophet PBUH & said: “You are welcome.”
Allah’s Messenger PBUH asked her (saying): “Where is so-and-so?”
She replied: “He has gone to fetch some water for us.”
In the meantime, the Ansar man came, saw Allah’s Messenger PBUH with his two Companions & said: “All praise & thanks are Allah’s: today there is none superior to me as regards guests.”
Then he went & brought a part of a bunch of date-fruit, having dates, some still green, some ripe & some fully ripe & requested them to eat from it. He then took his knife (to slaughter a sheep for them).
Allah’s Messenger PBUH said to him: “Beware! Do not slaughter a milch sheep.”
So he slaughtered a sheep (prepared the meals from its meat). They ate from that sheep & that bunch of dates & drank water.
After they had finished eating & drinking to their fill, Allah’s Messenger PBUH said to Abu Bakr & ‘Umar r.a.h.: “By Him in Whose Hand my soul is, you will be asked about this treat on the Day of Resurrection. He (Allah) brought you out of your homes with hunger & you are not returning to your homes till you have been blessed with this treat.”
