Did you notice?
83:1  Woe unto those who give short measure
83:2  Those who, when they take by measure from other people, take it full
83:3  But when they give by measure to others or weigh to them, they give them less
83:4  Do not such people know that they will be raised agai
83:5  To witness the judgment of a mighty day
83:6  The day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the worlds
83:7  Nay, the record of the wicked is in Sijjin
83:8  And what should make thee know what Sijjin is
83:9  It is a written Book since eternity
83:10  Woe on that day unto those who reject
83:11  Who deny the Day of Judgment
83:12  And none denies it save every sinful transgressor
83:13  Who, when Our Signs are recited unto him, say, `Tales of the ancient !
83:14  Nay, but that which they have earned is rust upon their hearts
83:15  Nay, they will, surely, be debarred from seeing their Lord on that day
83:16  Then, verily, they will burn in Hell
83:17  Then it will be said to them, `This is what you used to reject.
83:18  Nay, but the record of the righteous is, surely, in 'Illiyun
83:19  And what should make thee know what `Illiyyun is
83:20  It is a written Book
83:21  The chosen ones of God will witness it
83:22  Surely, the righteous will be in bliss
83:23  Seated on couches, looking at everything
83:24  Thou wilt find in their faces the freshness of bliss
83:25  They will be given to drink of a pure beverage, sealed
83:26  The sealing of it will be with musk - for this let the aspirants aspire
83:27  And it will be tempered with the water of Tasnim
83:28  A spring of which the chosen ones will drink
83:29  Those who were guilty used to laugh at those who believed
83:30  And when they passed by them, they winked at one another
83:31  And when they returned to their families they returned exulting
83:32  And when they saw them they said, `These, indeed, have gone astray.
83:33  But they were not sent as keepers over them
83:34  This day, then, it is the believers who will laugh at the disbelievers
83:35  Seated on couches, gazing around
83:36  They will say to one another, `Are not the disbelievers fully requited for what they used to do?
