Maududi rendition of Surah Defrauding, The Defrauders, The Cheats, Cheating(al-Mutaffifin)
83:1 Woe to the stinters
83:2 those who, when they take from others by measure, take their full share
83:3 but who, when they measure or weigh for others, give less than their due
83:4 Do they not realise that they will be raised to lif
83:5 on a Great Day
83:6 a Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe
83:7 No indeed! Verily the deeds of the wicked are in the Record locked up in the prison-house
83:8 And how would you know what the Record of the prison-house is
83:9 It is a Book inscribed
83:10 Woe, then, to those that give the lie
83:11 those that give the lie to the Day of Recompense
83:12 Yet none gives the lie to it except the transgressor immersed in sin
83:13 who, when Our verses are recited to him, says: "Mere tales of olden times!"
83:14 No indeed! The truth is that their hearts have become rusted on account of their evil deeds
83:15 No indeed! On that Day they will be screened off from seeing their Lord
83:16 and then they shall enter Hell
83:17 whereafter they will be told: "This is what you used to give the lie to."
83:18 No indeed! Verily, the deeds of the virtuous shall be in the record of the exalted ones
83:19 And what do you know what the Record of the exalted ones is
83:20 It is a Book inscribed
83:21 which the angels placed near Allah to safeguard
83:22 Verily the virtuous shall be in Bliss
83:23 resting on couches, looking around
83:24 You shall see upon their faces the glow of bliss
83:25 They will be served a drink of the finest sealed wine
83:26 whose seal is musk – so let all aspirants aspire after that
83:27 a wine whose mixture is Tasnim
83:28 a fountain at which the chosen ones shall drink
83:29 Behold, the wicked were wont to laugh at the believers
83:30 when they passed by them they winked
83:31 and when they went back to their families, they went back jesting
83:32 and when they saw the believers, they said: "Lo! These are the erring ones"
83:33 (they said so although) they had not been appointed watchers over them
83:34 But today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers
83:35 seated upon their couches, they are looking around
83:36 Have the unbelievers been duly rewarded for their deeds
