83:1 - Woe unto the defrauders:

83:2 - Those who when they take the measure from mankind demand it full,

83:3 - But if they measure unto them or weight for them, they cause them loss.

83:4 - Do such (men) not consider that they will be raised again

83:5 - Unto an Awful Day,

83:6 - The day when (all) mankind stand before the Lord of the Worlds?

83:7 - Nay, but the record of the vile is in Sijjin -

83:8 - Ah! what will convey unto thee what Sijjin is! -

83:9 - A written record.

83:10 - Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

83:11 - Those who deny the Day of Judgment

83:12 - Which none denieth save each criminal transgressor,

83:13 - Who, when thou readest unto him Our revelations, saith: (Mere) fables of the men of old.

83:14 - Nay, but that which they have earned is rust upon their hearts.

83:15 - Nay, but surely on that day they will be covered from (the mercy of) their Lord.

83:16 - Then lo! they verily will burn in hell,

83:17 - And it will be said (unto them): This is that which ye used to deny.

83:18 - Nay, but the record of the righteous is in 'Illiyin -

83:19 - Ah, what will convey unto thee what 'Illiyin is! -

83:20 - A written record,

83:21 - Attested by those who are brought near (unto their Lord).

83:22 - Lo! the righteous verily are in delight,

83:23 - On couches, gazing,

83:24 - Thou wilt know in their faces the radiance of delight.

83:25 - They are given to drink of a pure wine, sealed,

83:26 - Whose seal is musk - for this let (all) those strive who strive for bliss -

83:27 - And mixed with water of Tasnim,

83:28 - A spring whence those brought near (to Allah) drink.

83:29 - Lo! the guilty used to laugh at those who believed,

83:30 - And wink one to another when they passed them;

83:31 - And when they returned to their own folk, they returned jesting;

83:32 - And when they saw them they said: Lo! these have gone astray.

83:33 - Yet they were not sent as guardians over them.

83:34 - This day it is those who believe who have the laugh of disbelievers,

83:35 - On high couches, gazing.

83:36 - Are not the disbelievers paid for what they used to do?
