N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah Defrauding, The Defrauders, The Cheats, Cheating(al-Mutaffifin)
83:1 WOE BETIDE the unjus
83:2 who, when people measure for them, exact in full
83:3 but when they measure or weigh for them, defraud them
83:4 Do they not think they will be raised to lif
83:5 upon a fateful day
83:6 the day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe
83:7 No! The record of the sinners is in Sijjīn
83:8 Would that you knew what Sijjīn is
83:9 It is a sealed book
83:10 On that day woe betide the disbeliever
83:11 who deny the Last Judgement
83:12 None denies it except the sinful transgresso
83:13 who, when Our revelations are recited to him, says: ‘Fables of the ancients!&lsquo
83:14 No! But their own deeds have drawn a veil over their hearts
83:15 No! On a screen shall on that day be set between them and their Lord
83:16 Then shall they burn in Hell
83:17 and shall be told: ‘This is what you denied!&lsquo
83:18 No! But the record of the righteous shall be in ‘Illiyyūn
83:19 Would that you knew what ‘Illiyyūn is
83:20 It is a sealed book
83:21 seen only by the favoured ones
83:22 The righteous will surely be in bliss
83:23 Reclining upon soft couches they will gaze around
83:24 and in their faces you shall mark the glow of joy
83:25 They shall be served with pure nectar to drink
83:26 securely sealed, whose very dregs are musk: for this let all contenders emulously strive
83:27 tempered with the waters of Tasnīm
83:28 a spring at which the favoured will refresh themselves
83:29 Those who transgress laugh at the faithfu
83:30 and wink at one another as they pass by them
83:31 When they meet their own kin they speak of them with jests
83:32 and when they see them say: ‘These have surely lost their way.&lsquo
83:33 Yet they were not sent to be their keepers
83:34 But on that day the faithful will at the infidels laug
83:35 as they recline upon their couches and gaze around
83:36 Shall not the infidels be rewarded according to what they did
