83:1  Woe to the defrauders:
83:2  those who, when they take a measure from people, take in full;
83:3  but when they measure or weigh to others, they give less than they should.
83:4  Do those not think that they will be resurrected
83:5  on a great day,
83:6  a day when mankind stands before the Lord of all realms?
83:7  But no, indeed the record of the wicked is in Sijjeen.
83:8  And what can make yousg realize what Sijjeen is?
83:9  A written record.
83:10  Woe on that day to the disbelievers
83:11  who disbelieve in the Day of Recompense,
83:12  for none disbelieves in it except every sinful transgressor
83:13  who, when Our signs are recited to him, says, “Legends of the ancients.”
83:14  But no, rather, encrusted over their hearts is what they used to earn.
83:15  But no, indeed on that day they are sure to be screened off from their Lord.
83:16  Then indeed, they are sure to roast in purgatory.
83:17  Then it will be said, “This is what you used to disbelieve in.”
83:18  But no, indeed the record of the virtuous is in Elliyyeen.
83:19  And what can make yousg realize what Elliyyoon is?
83:20  A written record,
83:21  witnessed by those brought near.
83:22  Indeed, the virtuous are amid bliss,
83:23  on couches, looking on.
83:24  Yousg can recognize on their faces the radiance of bliss.
83:25  They are given to drink of a sealed nectar,
83:26  whose end is musk—and this is what competitors should compete for.
83:27  And its mixture is of Tasneem,
83:28  a spring from which those brought near drink.
83:29  Indeed, those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who had attained faith;
83:30  and when they passed by them, they would wink at one another;
83:31  and when they went back to their families, they would go back jesting;
83:32  and when they saw them, they would say, “These people are most surely misguided.”
83:33  Yet they were not sent as preservers over them.
83:34  So today those who have attained faith are laughing at the deniers,
83:35  on couches, looking on.
83:36  Have the deniers been recompensed for what they used to do?
