Did you notice?
83:1  Woe to those who cheat.
83:2  Those who when they are receiving any measure from the people, they take it in full.
83:3  And when they are the ones giving measure or weight, they give less than due.
83:4  Dothese not assume that they will be resurrected
83:5  Toa great Day?
83:6  The Day the people will stand before the Lord of the worlds.
83:7  No, the record of the wicked is in 'Sijjeen.'
83:8  And do you know what is 'Sijjeen?'
83:9  A numbered record.
83:10  Woeon that Day to the deniers.
83:11  Those who denied the Day of Recompense.
83:12  Andnone will deny it, except every transgressor, sinner.
83:13  When Our revelations are recited to him, he says: "Fictional tales of old!"
83:14  No,a covering has been placed on their hearts for what they have earned.
83:15  No,they will be blocked from their Lord on that Day.
83:16  Then they will be entered into Hell.
83:17  Then it will be said: "This is what you used to deny!"
83:18  No,the record of the pious is in 'Elliyeen.'
83:19  Anddo you know what is 'Elliyeen?'
83:20  A numbered record.
83:21  To be witnessed by those brought near.
83:22  Thepious are in the Paradise.
83:23  Upon raised couches, they are looking.
83:24  Youwill recognize in their faces the look of bliss.
83:25  They are given to drink from a pure sealed vial.
83:26  Itsseal will be of musk, so in that let those who are in competition compete.
83:27  Andits taste will be special.
83:28  A spring from which those who are brought near will drink.
83:29  Those who were criminals used to laugh at those who had believed.
83:30  Andwhen they passed by them they used to wink to each other.
83:31  Andwhen they returned to their people, they would return jesting.
83:32  Andif they see them they say: "These are indeed misguided!"
83:33  Butthey were not sent over them as caretakers.
83:34  Andtoday, those who had believed are laughing at the rejecters!
83:35  Upon raised couches, they are looking.
83:36  Have the rejecters been rewarded for what they used to do?
