83 Al-Mutaffifin | The Defrauding

  • 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

    When they are the ones giving measure or weight, they give less than due.

  • 83:4

    Do these not assume that they will be resurrected?

  • 83:5

    To a great day?

  • 83:6

    The day people will stand before the Lord of the universes.

  • 83:7

    No, the record of the wicked is in Sijjeen.

  • 83:8

    Do you know what Sijjeen is?

  • 83:9

    A numbered record.

  • 83:10

    Woes on that day to the deniers.

  • 83:11

    Those who denied the day of recompense.

  • 83:12

    None will deny it except every transgressor who knows no bounds.

  • 83:13

    When Our signs are recited to him, he says: "Tales of the ancients!"

  • 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 the 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

    Do you know what Elliyeen is?

  • 83:20

    A numbered record.

  • 83:21

    To be witnessed by those brought near.

  • 83:22

    The pious are in Paradise.

  • 83:23

    Upon luxurious furnishings, observing.

  • 83:24

    You know in their faces the look of Paradise.

  • 83:25

    They are given drink from a pure sealed vial.

  • 83:26

    Its seal will be of musk, so in that let those who are in competition compete.

  • 83:27

    Its 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 acknowledged.

  • 83:30

    When they passed by them they used to wink to each other.

  • 83:31

    When they returned to their people, they would return jesting.

  • 83:32

    If they see them they say, "These are indeed misguided!"

  • 83:33

    But they were not sent over them as caretakers.

  • 83:34

    Today, those who had acknowledged are laughing at the ingrates!

  • 83:35

    Upon the luxurious furnishings they are observing.

  • 83:36

    Have the ingrates not been reprised for what they used to do?
