In the name of God,
Most Gracious, Most Merciful
83:1 Woe to those that deal in fraud,-
83:2 Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, exact full measure,
83:3 But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due.
83:4 Do they not think that they will be called to account?-
83:5 On a Mighty Day,
83:6 A Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the Worlds?
83:7 Day! Surely the record of the wicked is (preserved) in Sijjin.
83:8 And what will explain to thee what Sijjin is?
83:9 (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed.
83:10 Woe, that Day, to those that deny-
83:11 Those that deny the Day of Judgment.
83:12 And none can deny it but the Transgressor beyond bounds the Sinner!
83:13 When Our Signs are rehearsed to him, he says, "Tales of the ancients!"
83:14 By no means! but on their hearts is the stain of the (ill) which they do!
83:15 Verily, from (the Light of) their Lord, that Day, will they be veiled.
83:16 Further, they will enter the Fire of Hell.
83:17 Further, it will be said to them: "This is the (reality) which ye rejected as false!
83:18 Day, verily the record of the Righteous is (preserved) in 'Illiyin.
83:19 And what will explain to thee what 'Illiyun is?
83:20 (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed,
83:21 To which bear witness those Nearest (to God).
83:22 Truly the Righteous will be in Bliss:
83:23 On Thrones (of Dignity) will they command a sight (of all things):
83:24 Thou wilt recognise in their faces the beaming brightness of Bliss.
83:25 Their thirst will be slaked with Pure Wine sealed:
83:26 The seal thereof will be Musk: And for this let those aspire, who have aspirations:
83:27 With it will be (given) a mixture of Tasnim:
83:28 A spring, from (the waters) whereof drink those Nearest to God.
83:29 Those in sin used to laugh at those who believed,
83:30 And whenever they passed by them, used to wink at each other (in mockery);
83:31 And when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting;
83:32 And whenever they saw them, they would say, "Behold! These are the people truly astray!"
83:33 But they had not been sent as keepers over them!
83:34 But on this Day the Believers will laugh at the Unbelievers:
83:35 On Thrones (of Dignity) they will command (a sight) (of all things).
83:36 Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did?
