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

83:26  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
