Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar rendition of Surah Defrauding, The Defrauders, The Cheats, Cheating(al-Mutaffifin)
83:1 Woe be to the ones who give short measure,
83:2 those who when they measure against humanity obtained full measure.
83:3 Yet when they wanted to measure for them, or weigh for them, they skimp.
83:4 Think those not that they will be ones who are raised up
83:5 on the sublime Day,
83:6 a Day when humanity will stand up for the Lord of the worlds?
83:7 No indeed! Truly, the Book of the ones who act immorally is in Sijjin.
83:8 And what will cause thee to recognize what Sijjin is?
83:9 It is a written book.
83:10 Woe on that Day to the ones who deny—
83:11 those who deny the Day of Judgment!
83:12 And none denies it but every sinful, exceeder of limits,
83:13 who, when Our signs are recounted to him, he said: Fables of the ancient ones!
83:14 No indeed! Nay! Their hearts will be overcome with rust from what they had been earning.
83:15 No indeed! They will be from their Lord on that Day ones who are alienated.
83:16 Truly, again, they will be ones who roast in hellfire.
83:17 Again, it will be said to them after that: This is what you had been denying.
83:18 No indeed! Truly, the book of the pious is in Illiyyun.
83:19 And what will cause thee to recognize what Illiyyun is?
83:20 It is a written book.
83:21 Bearing witness to it are the ones who are brought near to God.
83:22 Truly, the pious will be in bliss,
83:23 on raised benches, looking on.
83:24 Thou wilt recognize on their faces the radiancy of bliss.
83:25 They will be given to drink sealed over exquisite wine.
83:26 Its seal will have the lingering smell of musk. So for that, then, the ones who strive, strive.
83:27 And the mixture will be of Tasnim,
83:28 a spring from which will drink the ones who are brought near to it.
83:29 Truly, those who sinned—at those who believed—had been laughing.
83:30 And when they passed by them, they would wink at one another,
83:31 and when they would turn about to their people, they would turn about acting as ones who are unconcerned.
83:32 And when they saw them, they would say: Truly, these are ones who go astray.
83:33 They were sent as ones who guard over them.
83:34 Then, on this Day, those who believed laugh at the ones who are ungrateful,
83:35 seated on raised benches, they look on.
83:36 Were the ones who are ungrateful not rewarded for what they had been accomplishing?
