83: Al-Mutaffifin (المطففين)


1:  Woe to the defrauders,

2:  Who, when they take the measure (of their dues) from men take it fully,

3:  But when they measure out to others or weigh out for them, they are deficient.

4:  Do not these think that they shall be raised again

5:  For a mighty day,

6:  The day on which men shall stand before the Lord of the worlds?

7:  Nay! most surely the record of the wicked is in the Sijjin.

8:  And what will make you know what the Sijjin is?

9:  It is a written book.

10:  Woe on that day to the rejecters,

11:  Who give the lie to the day of judgment.

12:  And none gives the lie to it but every exceeder of limits, sinful one

13:  When Our communications are recited to him, he says: Stories of those of yore.

14:  Nay! rather, what they used to do has become like rust upon their hearts.

15:  Nay! most surely they shall on that day be debarred from their Lord.

16:  Then most surely they shall enter the burning fire.

17:  Then shall it be said: This is what you gave the lie to.

18:  Nay! Most surely the record of the righteous shall be in the Iliyin.

19:  And what will make you know what the highest Iliyin is?

20:  It is a written book,

21:  Those who are drawn near (to Allah) shall witness it.

22:  Most surely the righteous shall be in bliss,

23:  On thrones, they shall gaze;

24:  You will recognize in their faces the brightness of bliss.

25:  They are made to quaff of a pure drink that is sealed (to others).

26:  The sealing of it is (with) musk; and for that let the aspirers aspire.

27:  And the admixture of it is a water of Tasnim,

28:  A fountain from which drink they who are drawn near (to Allah).

29:  Surely they who are guilty used to laugh at those who believe.

30:  And when they passed by them, they winked at one another.

31:  And when they returned to their own followers they returned exulting.

32:  And when they saw them, they said: Most surely these are in error;

33:  And they were not sent to be keepers over them.

34:  So today those who believe shall laugh at the unbelievers;

35:  On thrones, they will look.

36:  Surely the disbelievers are rewarded as they did.
