Surah 83. Defrauding, The Cheats, Cheating
83:1. Woe to those that deal in fraud,-
83:2. Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, exact full measure,
83:3. But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due.
83:4. Do they not think that they will be called to account?-
83:5. On a Mighty Day,
83:6. A Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the Worlds?
83:7. Nay! Surely the record of the wicked is (preserved) in their Prison Record.
83:8. And what will explain to thee what Prison Record is?
83:9. (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed.
83:10. Woe, that Day, to those that deny-
83:11. Those that deny the Day of Judgment.
83:12. And none can deny it but the Transgressor beyond bounds the Sinner!
83:13. When Our Signs are rehearsed to him, he says, "Old-wives' Tales!"
83:14. By no means! But on their hearts is the stain of the (ill) which they do!
83:15. Verily, from (the Light of) their Lord, that Day, will they be veiled.
83:16. Further, they will enter the Fire of Hell.
83:17. Further, it will be said to them: "This is the (reality) which ye rejected as false!
83:18. Nay, verily the record of the Righteous is (preserved) in High Places.
83:19. And what will explain to thee what 'High Places' is?
83:20. (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed (the Book of Life - Rev. 20:12),
83:21. To which bear witness those Nearest to "I AM".
83:22. Truly the Righteous will be in Bliss:
83:23. On Thrones (of Dignity) will they command a sight (of all things):
83:24. Thou wilt recognise in their faces the beaming brightness of Bliss.
83:25. Their thirst will be slaked with Pure Wine sealed:
83:26. The seal thereof will be Musk: and for this let those aspire, who have aspirations:
83:27. With it will be (given) a mixture of "Overflow" (Psalm 23:5):
83:28. A spring, from (the "Waters") whereof drink those Nearest to "I AM".
83:29. Those in sin used to laugh at those who believed,
83:30. And whenever they passed by them, used to wink at each other (in mockery);
83:31. And when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting;
83:32. And whenever they saw them, they would say, "Behold! These are the people truly astray!"
83:33. But they had not been sent as Keepers over them!
83:34. But on this Day the Believers will laugh at the Unbelievers:
83:35. On Thrones (of Dignity) they will command (a sight) (of all things).
83:36. Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did?
