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