John Medows Rodwell rendition of Surah Defrauding, The Defrauders, The Cheats, Cheating(al-Mutaffifin)
83:1 Woe to those who STINT the measure
83:2 Who when they take by measure from others, exact the full
83:3 But when they mete to them or weigh to them, minish
83:4 What! have they no thought that they shall be raised agai
83:5 For the great day
83:6 The day when mankind shall stand before the Lord of the worlds
83:7 Yes! the register of the wicked is in Sidjin
83:8 And who shall make thee understand what Sidjin is
83:9 It is a book distinctly written
83:10 Woe, on that day, to those who treated our signs as lies
83:11 Who treated the day of judgment as a lie
83:12 None treat it as a lie, save the transgressor, the criminal
83:13 Who, when our signs are rehearsed to him, saith, "Tales of the Ancients!"
83:14 Yes; but their own works have got the mastery over their hearts
83:15 Yes; they shall be shut out as by a veil from their Lord on that day
83:16 Then shall they be burned in Hell-fire
83:17 Then shall it be said to them, "This is what ye deemed a lie."
83:18 Even so. But the register of the righteous is in Illiyoun
83:19 And who shall make thee understand what Illiyoun is
83:20 A book distinctly written
83:21 The angels who draw nigh unto God attest it
83:22 Surely, among delights shall the righteous dwell
83:23 Seated on bridal couches they will gaze around
83:24 Thou shalt mark in their faces the brightness of delight
83:25 Choice sealed wine shall be given them to quaff
83:26 The seal of musk. For this let those pant who pant for bliss
83:27 Mingled therewith shall be the waters of Tasnim
83:28 Fount whereof they who draw nigh to God shall drink
83:29 The sinners indeed laugh the faithful to scorn
83:30 And when they pass by them they wink at one another,
83:31 And when they return to their own people, they return jesting
83:32 And when they see them they say, "These are the erring ones."
83:33 And yet they have no mission to be their guardians
83:34 Therefore, on that day the faithful shall laugh the infidels to scorn
83:35 As reclining on bridal couches they behold them
83:36 Shall not the infidels be recompensed according to their works
