83:1  WOE BETIDE the unjus
83:2  who, when people measure for them, exact in full
83:3  but when they measure or weigh for them, defraud them
83:4  Do they not think they will be raised to lif
83:5  upon a fateful day
83:6  the day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe
83:7  No! The record of the sinners is in Sijjīn
83:8  Would that you knew what Sijjīn is
83:9  It is a sealed book
83:10  On that day woe betide the disbeliever
83:11  who deny the Last Judgement
83:12  None denies it except the sinful transgresso
83:13  who, when Our revelations are recited to him, says: ‘Fables of the ancients!‘
83:14  No! But their own deeds have drawn a veil over their hearts
83:15  No! On a screen shall on that day be set between them and their Lord
83:16  Then shall they burn in Hell
83:17  and shall be told: ‘This is what you denied!‘
83:18  No! But the record of the righteous shall be in ‘Illiyyūn
83:19  Would that you knew what ‘Illiyyūn is
83:20  It is a sealed book
83:21  seen only by the favoured ones
83:22  The righteous will surely be in bliss
83:23  Reclining upon soft couches they will gaze around
83:24  and in their faces you shall mark the glow of joy
83:25  They shall be served with pure nectar to drink
83:26  securely sealed, whose very dregs are musk: for this let all contenders emulously strive
83:27  tempered with the waters of Tasnīm
83:28  a spring at which the favoured will refresh themselves
83:29  Those who transgress laugh at the faithfu
83:30  and wink at one another as they pass by them
83:31  When they meet their own kin they speak of them with jests
83:32  and when they see them say: ‘These have surely lost their way.‘
83:33  Yet they were not sent to be their keepers
83:34  But on that day the faithful will at the infidels laug
83:35  as they recline upon their couches and gaze around
83:36  Shall not the infidels be rewarded according to what they did
