Did you notice?
83:1  WOE TO THOSE who give short measure
83:2  Who insist on being given full when they take from others
83:3  Whilst when they measure or weigh for them, give less
83:4  Do they not think they will be raised (to life) agai
83:5  On a grievous day
83:6  The day all mankind will stand before the Lord of all the worlds
83:7  Indeed the ledger of the wicked will be in (the lowest depths) Sijjin
83:8  How will you comprehend what Sijjin is
83:9  It is a (repository of) distinctly written record
83:10  Ah the woe that day for those who deny
83:11  Who call the Day of judgement a lie
83:12  None denies it but the sinful transgressors
83:13  When Our revelations are recited before him, he says: "These are fables of long ago."
83:14  No. In fact what they have been doing has rusted their hearts
83:15  Therefore they will be screened off from their Lord that day
83:16  Then they will indeed burn in Hell
83:17  They will then be told: "This is what you had denied."
83:18  Surely the ledger of the pious will be in 'Illiyun (heights above the heights)
83:19  But how will you comprehend what 'Illiyun is
83:20  It is a (repository of) distinctly written recor
83:21  Witnessed by those who are honoured
83:22  Verily the pious will be in heaven
83:23  On couches face to face
83:24  On their faces you will see the glow of beatitude
83:25  They will be served the choicest wine, seale
83:26  With a sealing of musk, which those who aspire for the best should desire, -
83:27  Blended with the water of Tasnim, (heights ultimate of evolution)
83:28  A fountain from which only they who are honoured drink
83:29  The sinners indeed laughed at believer
83:30  And winked at one another as they passed by them
83:31  And when they went back to their people turned to make fun of them
83:32  And when they saw them, they said: "They have indeed gone astray."
83:33  But they were not Sent to be guardians over them
83:34  So, the believers will laugh at the infidels on that day
83:35  Regarding them from their cushioned seats
83:36  Will not the infidels pay for what they had done
