وَلَتَعْلَمُنَّ نَبَأَهُ بَعْدَ حِينِ

And you shall certainly know the truth of it after a while. (38;88)

and,

لِكُلِّ أَجَلٍ كِتَابٌ

(For) each and every matter there is a decree (from Allah). (13;38)

This, indeed, is a warning and a promise that will surely occur,

وَسَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ



and you will come to know.
