This study examines the words "yakîn" and "hattâ" mentioned in the 99th verse of Sura al-Hicr. It also provides information from the Quranic commentaries and translations on these words. The evaluations by the grammar and lexicon scholars as well as the information and opinions from the reference books are also quoted. The mainstream opinion is that the work "yakîn" means "death" while the preposition "hattâ" means "until". However, our opinion is that "yakîn" means "definite knowledge or definite belief " and "hattâ" means "that".
