83:1  Woe to those who give less in measure or weight
83:2  When (they) take by measure from others, they take (from them) full
83:3  And when they (themselves) give by measure or weigh to others, they give them less
83:4  Do they not believe that they will be raised up (again after death)
83:5  For a Terrible Day
83:6  The Day when all mankind will stand before the Lord of all the worlds
83:7  It is true that the record of the evildoers is kept in Sijjin (the ante-chamber of Hell)
83:8  And what do you know what Sijjin is
83:9  It is an inscribed book (set down in the large ante-chamber of the prison of Hell, with the names and evil deeds of every inmate of Hell registered in it)
83:10  Woe to the deniers on that Day
83:11  Those who deny the Day of Recompense
83:12  And no one else denies it except every defiant and sinner
83:13  When Our Revelations are read out to him, he says (or thinks) that (they are) tales of the ancients
83:14  That is not at all (the case); rather (the fact is that the evil deeds) which they earned have rusted their hearts. (The Revelations, therefore, do not move their hearts.
83:15  The truth is that they will be screened off (to deprive them of) the sight of their Lord
83:16  Then they will be cast into Hell
83:17  Then it will be said to them: ‘This is (the punishment of Hell) which you used to belie.
83:18  This is (also) true that the record of the truly pious is for sure maintained in ‘Illiyyin (the ante-chamber of Paradise)
83:19  And what do you know what ‘Illiyyin is
83:20  It is an inscribed book (set down in the large ante-chamber of a lofty mansion of Paradise with the names and pious deeds of those who will be allocated superior stations in Paradise)
83:21  The angels closest (to Allah) remain present here
83:22  Indeed, the truly pious, (joyful and glad,) will be in blissful Paradise
83:23  Reclining on couches, enjoying the wonderful sights
83:24  You will find on their faces the glow and freshness of bliss and delight
83:25  They shall be served with securely sealed delicious and holy beverage
83:26  Its seal will be musk. And (it is this beverage which) all aspirants should hastily strive and compete to acquire. (Some seek the drink of bliss whilst others long for the drink of nearness, and still others yearn for the drink of countenance—all will be served according to their respective tastes)
83:27  And this (beverage of Paradise) will be mixed with the water of Tasnim
83:28  (This Tasnim) is a fountain at which only those drawn close will drink
83:29  Surely (in the worldly life), the evildoers used to ridicule the believers
83:30  And winked at one another when they passed by them
83:31  And when they went back to their families, they used to exult over the believers (by comparing the believers’ destitution and their own affluence) and returned speaking of them with jests
83:32  And when they (the arrogant people) saw these (the indigent believers), they used to say: ‘They have gone astray,’ (i.e., they have lost the world whilst the Hereafter is nothing but fiction.
83:33  Yet they had not been sent to watch over their (state of affairs)
83:34  So (see) Today the believers are laughing at the disbelievers
83:35  Reclining on ornamented couches, they are viewing the sight (comparing their own prosperity and the disbelievers’ impoverishment)
83:36  So, have the disbelievers been rewarded in full for (the mockery), which they used to inflict upon (the believers)
