Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah Defrauding, The Defrauders, The Cheats, Cheating(al-Mutaffifin)
83:1 Woe to the stinters who
83:2 when they measure against the people, take full measur
83:3 but, when they measure for them or weigh for them, do skimp
83:4 Do those not think that they shall be raised u
83:5 unto a mighty da
83:6 a day when mankind shall stand before the Lord of all Being
83:7 No indeed; the Book of the libertines is in Sijjin
83:8 and what shall teach thee what is Sijjin
83:9 A book inscribed
83:10 Woe that day unto those who cry it lies
83:11 who cry lies to the Day of Doom
83:12 and none cries lies to it but every guilty aggressor
83:13 When our signs are recited to him, he says, 'Fairy-tales of the ancients!
83:14 No indeed; but that they were earning has rusted upon their hearts
83:15 No indeed; but upon that day they shall be veiled from their Lord
83:16 then they shall roast in Hell
83:17 Then it shall be said to them, 'This is that you cried lies to.
83:18 No indeed; the book of the pious is in Illiyun
83:19 and what shall teach thee what is Illiyun
83:20 A book inscribed
83:21 witnessed by those brought nigh
83:22 Surely the pious shall be in bliss
83:23 upon couches gazing
83:24 thou knowest in their faces the radiancy of blis
83:25 as they are given to drink of a wine seale
83:26 whose seal is musk -- so after that let the strivers strive -
83:27 and whose mixture is Tasnim
83:28 a fountain at which do drink those brought nigh
83:29 Behold, the sinners were laughing at the believers
83:30 when them passed them by winking at one another
83:31 and when they returned to their people they returned blithely
83:32 and when they saw them they said, 'Lo, these men are astray!
83:33 Yet they were not sent as watchers over them
83:34 So today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers
83:35 upon couches gazing
83:36 Have the unbelievers been rewarded what they were doing
