83:1  Woe to the defrauders who use short measures
83:2  who, when they measure [a commodity bought] from the people, take the full measure
83:3  but diminish when they measure or weigh for them
83:4  Do they not know that they will be resurrecte
83:5  on a tremendous day
83:6  a day when mankind will stand before the Lord of all the worlds
83:7  No indeed! The record of the vicious is indeed in Sijja«n
83:8  And what will show you what is Sijja«n
83:9  It is a written record
83:10  Woe to the deniers on that day
83:11  who deny the Day of Retribution
83:12  and none denies it except every sinful transgressor
83:13  When Our signs are recited to him, he says, ‘Myths of the ancients!’
83:14  No indeed! Rather their hearts have been sullied by what they have been earning
83:15  No indeed! They will be alienated from their Lord on that day
83:16  Then they will indeed enter hell
83:17  then told, ‘This is what you used to deny!’
83:18  No indeed! The record of the pious is indeed in 'Illiyun
83:19  And what will show you what is 'Illiyun
83:20  It is a written record
83:21  witnessed by those brought near [to Allah]
83:22  Indeed the pious shall be amid bliss
83:23  observing, [as they recline] on couches
83:24  You will perceive in their faces the freshness of blis
83:25  as they are served with a sealed wine
83:26  whose seal is musk —for such let the viers vie—
83:27  and whose seasoning is from Tasna«m
83:28  a spring where those brought near [to Allah] drink
83:29  Indeed the guilty used to laugh at the faithful
83:30  and when they passed them by they would wink at each other
83:31  and when they returned to their folks they would return rejoicing
83:32  and when they saw them they would say, ‘Indeed those are the astray!’
83:33  Though they were not sent to watch over them
83:34  So today the faithful will laugh at the faithless
83:35  observing from couches
83:36  Have the faithless been requited for what they used to do
