Did you notice?
83:1  Woe be unto those who give short measure or weight
83:2  who, when they receive by measure from other men, take the full
83:3  but when they measure unto them, or weigh unto them, defraud
83:4  Do not these think they shall be raised again
83:5  at the great day
83:6  the day whereon mankind shall stand before the Lord of all creatures
83:7  By no means. Verily the register of the actions of the wicked is surely in Sejjin
83:8  And what shall make thee to understand what Sejjin is
83:9  It is a book distinctly written
83:10  Woe be, on that day, unto those who accused the prophets of imposture
83:11  who denied the day of judgment as a falsehood
83:12  And none denieth the same as falsehood, except every unjust and flagitious person
83:13  Who, when our signs are rehearsed unto him, saith, they are fables of the ancients
83:14  By no means: But rather their lusts have cast a veil over their hearts
83:15  By no means. Verily they shall be shut out from their Lord on that day
83:16  and they shall be sent into hell to be burned
83:17  Then shall it be said unto them, by the infernal guards, this is what ye denied as a falsehood
83:18  Assuredly. But the register of the actions of the righteous is in Illiyyun
83:19  And what shall cause thee to understand what Illiyyun is
83:20  It is a book distinctly written
83:21  Those who approach near unto God, are witnesses thereto
83:22  Verily the righteous shall dwell among delights
83:23  Seated on couches they shall behold objects of pleasure
83:24  thou shalt see in their faces the brightness of joy
83:25  They shall be given to drink of pure wine, sealed
83:26  the seal whereof shall be musk: And to this let those aspire, who aspire to happiness
83:27  And the water mixed therewith shall be of Tasnim
83:28  a fountain whereof those shall drink who approach near unto the divine presence
83:29  They who act wickedly laugh the true believers to scorn
83:30  and when they pass by them, they wink at one another
83:31  And when they turn aside to their people, they turn aside making scurrilous jests
83:32  And when they see them, they say, verily these are mistaken men
83:33  But they are not sent to be keepers over them
83:34  Wherefore one day the true believers, in their turn, shall laugh the infidels to scorn
83:35  Lying on couches they shall look down upon them in hell
83:36  Shall not the infidels be rewarded for that which they have done
