Aisha Bewley rendition of Surah Defrauding, The Defrauders, The Cheats, Cheating(al-Mutaffifin)
83:1 Woe to the stinters!
83:2 Those who, when they take a measure from people, exact full measure,
83:3 but when they give them a measure or weight, hand over less than is due.
83:4 Do such people not realise that they will be raised up
83:5 on a Terrible Day,
83:6 the Day mankind will stand before the Lord of all the worlds?
83:7 No indeed! The book of the dissolute is in Sijjin.
83:8 And what will convey to you what Sijjin is?
83:9 A clearly written Book.
83:10 Woe that Day to the deniers:
83:11 those who deny the Day of Reckoning.
83:12 No one denies it except for every evil aggressor.
83:13 When Our Signs are recited to him, he says, ´Just myths and legends of the previous peoples!´
83:14 No indeed! Rather what they have earned has rusted up their hearts.
83:15 No indeed! Rather that Day they will be veiled from their Lord.
83:16 Then they will roast in the Blazing Fire.
83:17 Then they will be told, ´This is what you denied.´
83:18 No indeed! The book of the truly good is in ´Illiyun.
83:19 And what will convey to you what ´Illiyun is?
83:20 A clearly written book.
83:21 Those brought near will witness it.
83:22 The truly good will be in perfect Bliss
83:23 on couches gazing in wonder.
83:24 You will recognise in their faces the radiance of delight.
83:25 They are given the choicest sealed wine to drink,
83:26 whose seal is musk — let people with aspiration aspire to that! —
83:27 mixed with Tasnim:
83:28 a fountain at which Those Brought Near will drink.
83:29 Those who did evil used to laugh at those who had iman.
83:30 When they passed by them, they would wink at one another.
83:31 When they returned to their families, they would make a joke of them.
83:32 When they saw them, they would say, ´Those people are misguided.´
83:33 But they were not sent as guardians over them.
83:34 So today those who have iman are laughing at the kuffar,
83:35 on couches, gazing in wonder.
83:36 Have the kuffar been rewarded for what they did?
