83:1  Woe to the stinters
83:2  those who, when they take from others by measure, take their full share
83:3  but who, when they measure or weigh for others, give less than their due
83:4  Do they not realise that they will be raised to lif
83:5  on a Great Day
83:6  a Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe
83:7  No indeed! Verily the deeds of the wicked are in the Record locked up in the prison-house
83:8  And how would you know what the Record of the prison-house is
83:9  It is a Book inscribed
83:10  Woe, then, to those that give the lie
83:11  those that give the lie to the Day of Recompense
83:12  Yet none gives the lie to it except the transgressor immersed in sin
83:13  who, when Our verses are recited to him, says: "Mere tales of olden times!"
83:14  No indeed! The truth is that their hearts have become rusted on account of their evil deeds
83:15  No indeed! On that Day they will be screened off from seeing their Lord
83:16  and then they shall enter Hell
83:17  whereafter they will be told: "This is what you used to give the lie to."
83:18  No indeed! Verily, the deeds of the virtuous shall be in the record of the exalted ones
83:19  And what do you know what the Record of the exalted ones is
83:20  It is a Book inscribed
83:21  which the angels placed near Allah to safeguard
83:22  Verily the virtuous shall be in Bliss
83:23  resting on couches, looking around
83:24  You shall see upon their faces the glow of bliss
83:25  They will be served a drink of the finest sealed wine
83:26  whose seal is musk – so let all aspirants aspire after that
83:27  a wine whose mixture is Tasnim
83:28  a fountain at which the chosen ones shall drink
83:29  Behold, the wicked were wont to laugh at the believers
83:30  when they passed by them they winked
83:31  and when they went back to their families, they went back jesting
83:32  and when they saw the believers, they said: "Lo! These are the erring ones"
83:33  (they said so although) they had not been appointed watchers over them
83:34  But today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers
83:35  seated upon their couches, they are looking around
83:36  Have the unbelievers been duly rewarded for their deeds
