83:1  Woe to those who weigh and measure less
83:2  Those who insist upon receiving the full measure, when they are the ones receiving
83:3  But when they measure and weigh for others, they (short change and) give less than due
83:4  Do such people not think that they are going to be resurrected
83:5  On an awesome day
83:6  That day, all mankind shall stand before the Lord of the universe
83:7  Of course not! The book of deeds of the wicked ones is (preserved) in the "Sijjin" _ (the vault)
83:8  And how would you know what ´Sijjin´ is
83:9  (It is) a book inscribed
83:10  Misery that day is for those who belie (the truth)
83:11  Those who dispute (and refute) the Day of Judgment
83:12  No one disputes it except all the sinful obstinate transgressors
83:13  When Our verses are recited to them they say, "Fables of the earlier people!"
83:14  Of course not! Rather, all (the filth) they have earned has rusted and encrusted their hearts
83:15  Of course not! In fact, on that day they would be shut out from the Mercy of their Lord
83:16  Then, they shall burn in hell
83:17  And they would be told, "This is precisely what you used to deny!"
83:18  While the record of deeds of the virtuous is (preserved) in the ´Illiyeen´ _ (the register of the exalted)
83:19  And how would you know what ´Illiyeen´ is
83:20  (It is) a book inscribed
83:21  Those nearest (to Allah, the angels) will attest to it
83:22  The righteous ones would be in bliss
83:23  Seated on thrones, looking on
83:24  You would notice a blissful radiance on their faces
83:25  To drink, they would be given the sealed wine, the choicest and the purest
83:26  Musk shall be its seal! Those wishing to excel, should excel at this
83:27  Its flavor and essence shall consist of ´Tasneem´
83:28  A spring! Those closest (to Allah, the righteous ones) would drink from (this spring)
83:29  In fact the criminals, the unbelievers, used to laugh at those who believed
83:30  As they passed by the believers, they would wink at each other (jokingly)
83:31  And when they returned to their family, they returned jesting (and grinning)
83:32  Whenever they saw the believers, they said, "These are the people gone astray."
83:33  The unbelievers were not sent as guardians over the believers
83:34  So today, it is the believers´ turn to laugh at the unbelievers
83:35  (The believers would be sitting) on elevated thrones, looking on
83:36  Now, have the unbelievers not been paid in full for what they did
