Did you notice?
83:1  How terrible it is to those who give short measures,
83:2  who, when they take a measure from people, take in full.
83:3  But when they measure or weigh for others, they cheat.
83:4  Don't such people realize that they will be resurrected
83:5  for a grievous Day,
83:6  the Day when Humankind will stand before the Lord of the worlds?
83:7  Indeed, the record of the wicked is in Sijjeen.
83:8  And how would you know what Sijjeen is?
83:9  It is a locked-in digital data record.
83:10  How terrible it is that Day for the deniers,
83:11  who deny the Day of Judgment,
83:12  when only sinful aggressors deny it.
83:13  When Our verses are recited to him, he says, "Legends of ancient people."
83:14  Not at all! Rather, their hearts have become encrusted by what they were earning.
83:15  They will be separated from their Lord, that Day.
83:16  Then, they will be rekindling Hell.
83:17  They will be then told, "This is what you used to deny."
83:18  No indeed! The righteous' record is in 'Illiyyun.
83:19  And how would you know what is Illiyyun?
83:20  It is a digital data record,
83:21  open to be witnessed by those brought near [to God].
83:22  Indeed, the righteous will be in perfect bliss
83:23  seated on couches, looking around.
83:24  You will recognize the radiance of bliss on their faces.
83:25  They will be given pure virgin nectar to drink
83:26  leaving a great taste in the mouth. Let people with aspirations, aspire to that.
83:27  It is mixed with the water from Tasneem,
83:28  a spring from which those near [to God] drink.
83:29  Those who rejected the faith and severed their relation with God used to laugh at those who believed.
83:30  They would wink at one another when the believers passed by them,
83:31  joking about them when they returned to their people.
83:32  And if they saw them, they would say, "Indeed, those are truly lost."
83:33  Yet, they were not sent as guardians over them.
83:34  So today those who believed will laugh at the unbelievers,
83:35  while seated on luxurious furnishings, looking around.
83:36  Have the unbelievers been rewarded for their deeds?
