83:1  Woe to those who give short weight
83:2  who when they measure against others take full measure
83:3  but when they measure to them or weigh to them, diminish
83:4  Do not these think that they shall be raised agai
83:5  at the mighty day
83:6  the day when men shall stand before the Lord of the worlds
83:7  Nay, verily, the book of the wicked is in Siggin
83:8  and what shall make thee know what Siggin i
83:9  a book inscribed
83:10  Woe on that day for those who say it is a lie
83:11  Who call the judgment day a lie
83:12  but none shall call it a lie except every sinful transgressor
83:13  who, when our signs are read to him, says, Old folks tales
83:14  Nay, but that which they have gained has settled upon their hearts
83:15  Nay, verily, from their Lord on that day are they veiled
83:16  and then, verily, they shall broil in hell
83:17  then it shall be said, 'This is what ye once did call a lie!
83:18  Nay, verily, the book of the righteous is in Illiyun
83:19  and what shall make thee know what Illiyun is
83:20  book inscribed
83:21  those nigh to God shall witness it
83:22  Verily, the righteous shall be in pleasure
83:23  upon couches shall they gaze
83:24  thou mayest recognise in their faces the brightness of pleasure
83:25  they shall be given to drink wine that is sealed
83:26  whose seal is musk; for that then let the aspirants aspire!
83:27  and it shall be tempered with Tasnim,
83:28  a spring from which those nigh to God shall drink
83:29  Verily, those who sin do laugh at those who believe
83:30  and when they pass by they wink at one another
83:31  and when they return to their family they return ridiculing them
83:32  and when they see them they say, Verily, these do go astray!
83:33  but they are not sent as guardians over them
83:34  But today those who believe shall at the misbelievers laugh
83:35  Upon couches shall they gaze
83:36  are the misbelievers rewarded for what they have done
