83:2  the ones who demand full measure from people,
83:3  but when they measure and weigh for others, they give less.

83:5  on a Grand Day?
83:6  The Day when people will stand before the Lord of the worlds

83:10  It will be too bad for the deniers that Day,
83:11  who deny Judgment Day.

83:26  musk its aftertaste – let the competitors compete for that –
83:27  mixed with the water of Tasneem,
83:28  a spring from which those brought close to Allah will drink
83:29  The wicked used to laugh at the believers

83:31  Back with their families they made fun of them
83:32  and when they saw them, they would say, “These are misguided!”
83:33  They weren’t sent as their guardians.
83:34  But today, the believers are laughing at the disbelievers,
83:35  sitting on the sofas watching them in misery:
