83

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the 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. Nay! 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?
