The first placement of the root word كَلَّا is in Verse # 79 Chapter # 19 and the last placement of the word كَلَّا is in Verse # 04 Chapter # 104. Now, Allah Subhan O Talah is further elaborating the fate of those who disbelieve Rasool Allah (SAW) and the Oneness of Allah. For sure they will know with certainty when they will witness Allah Subhan O Talah grandeur on the day of Judgement.


وَلَتَجِدَنَّھُمْ اَحْرَصَ النَّاسِ عَلٰي حَيٰوةٍ ڔ وَمِنَ الَّذِيْنَ اَشْرَكُــوْا ڔ يَوَدُّ اَحَدُھُمْ لَوْ يُعَمَّرُ اَلْفَ سَـنَةٍ ۚ وَمَا ھُوَ بِمُزَحْزِحِهٖ مِنَ الْعَذَابِ اَنْ يُّعَمَّرَ ۭ وَاللّٰهُ بَصِيْرٌۢ بِمَا يَعْمَلُوْنَ

The first placement of the root word لَوْ is in Verse # 96 Chapter # 02 in which Allah Subhan O Talah is describing the properties of those who disobey Allah Subhan O Talah. One of the many is that they wish that they could be granted life a thousand years. In the closing remarks of the Ayat Allah Subhan O Talah is confirming that He knows all their affairs.

The last placement of the root word لَوْ is in Verse # 04 Chapter # 105, Allah Subhan O Talah is declaring that initial I know what they are doing. However, now they will know with certainty the truth and reality.


The first and last placement of both words is in Verse # 01 Chapter # 01 AND Verse # 05 Chapter # 102. The origin of the words تَعْلَمُوْنَ and the word عِلْمَ is same. Knowledge ( عِلْمَ ) would lead you to the actual reality ( تَعْلَمُوْنَ). That reality is the day of judgment. To maintain the balance between عِلْمَ and تَعْلَمُوْنَ both words placed in the Holy Qur’an 854 times.

اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ رَبِّ الْعٰلَمِيْنَ

The first placement of the root word تَعْلَمُوْنَ is in Verse # 01 Chapter # 01 in which Allah Subhan O Talah announcing that All the praise belongs to Allah Subhan O Talah.

كَلَّا لَوْ تَعْلَمُوْنَ عِلْمَ الْيَقِيْنِ

So when you will know exactly. Allah Subhan O Talah is articulating this in the last placement of the root word. The last placement of the root word تَعْلَمُوْنَ is in Verse # 05 Chapter # 102 in which Allah Subhan O Talah clearly states that Indeed if you were to know [your fate] with certainty, [you would have acted differently].


وَ الَّذِيْنَ يُؤْمِنُوْنَ بِمَآ اُنْزِلَ اِلَيْكَ وَمَآ اُنْزِلَ مِنْ قَبْلِكَ ۚ وَبِالْاٰخِرَةِ ھُمْ يُوْقِنُوْنَ

The first placement of the root word الْيَقِيْنِ is in Verse # 04 Chapter # 02, Earlier Allah Subhan O Talah was describing the properties of a disbeliever that he would like to enjoy the life for thousand years. Now in the closing remarks, Allah Subhan O Talah is underlining the attributes of a believer. They will believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter, they are certain [in faith].

ثُمَّ لَتَرَوُنَّهَا عَيْنَ الْيَقِيْنِ

The last placement of the root word الْيَقِيْنِ is in Verse # 07 Chapter # 102, So a believer would witness the grandeur of Allah Subhan O Talah with the eye of certainty .
