83:1  Woe to those who STINT the measure
83:2  Who when they take by measure from others, exact the full
83:3  But when they mete to them or weigh to them, minish
83:4  What! have they no thought that they shall be raised agai
83:5  For the great day
83:6  The day when mankind shall stand before the Lord of the worlds
83:7  Yes! the register of the wicked is in Sidjin
83:8  And who shall make thee understand what Sidjin is
83:9  It is a book distinctly written
83:10  Woe, on that day, to those who treated our signs as lies
83:11  Who treated the day of judgment as a lie
83:12  None treat it as a lie, save the transgressor, the criminal
83:13  Who, when our signs are rehearsed to him, saith, "Tales of the Ancients!"
83:14  Yes; but their own works have got the mastery over their hearts
83:15  Yes; they shall be shut out as by a veil from their Lord on that day
83:16  Then shall they be burned in Hell-fire
83:17  Then shall it be said to them, "This is what ye deemed a lie."
83:18  Even so. But the register of the righteous is in Illiyoun
83:19  And who shall make thee understand what Illiyoun is
83:20  A book distinctly written
83:21  The angels who draw nigh unto God attest it
83:22  Surely, among delights shall the righteous dwell
83:23  Seated on bridal couches they will gaze around
83:24  Thou shalt mark in their faces the brightness of delight
83:25  Choice sealed wine shall be given them to quaff
83:26  The seal of musk. For this let those pant who pant for bliss
83:27  Mingled therewith shall be the waters of Tasnim
83:28  Fount whereof they who draw nigh to God shall drink
83:29  The sinners indeed laugh the faithful to scorn
83:30  And when they pass by them they wink at one another,
83:31  And when they return to their own people, they return jesting
83:32  And when they see them they say, "These are the erring ones."
83:33  And yet they have no mission to be their guardians
83:34  Therefore, on that day the faithful shall laugh the infidels to scorn
83:35  As reclining on bridal couches they behold them
83:36  Shall not the infidels be recompensed according to their works
