Book 83


The Deceivers in Measuring

In the name of Allah,
the Beneficent,
the Merciful.

[83.1]

Woe to the defrauders,

[83.2]

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

[83.3]

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

[83.4]
Do not these think that they shall be raised again

[83.5]

For a mighty day,

[83.6]

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

[83.7]

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

[83.8]

And what will make you know what the Sijjin is?

[83.9]

It is a written book.

[83.10]

Woe on that day to the rejecters,

[83.11]

Who give the lie to the day of judgment.

[83.12]

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

[83.13]

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

[83.14]

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

[83.15]

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

[83.16]

Then most surely they shall enter the burning fire.

[83.17]

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

[83.18]

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

[83.19]

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

[83.20]

It is a written book,

[83.21]

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

[83.22]

Most surely the righteous shall be in bliss,

[83.23]

On thrones,
they shall gaze;

[83.24]

You will recognize in their faces the brightness of bliss.

[83.25]

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

[83.26]

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

[83.27]

And the admixture of it is a water of Tasnim,

[83.28]

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

[83.29]

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

[83.30]

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

[83.31]

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

[83.32]

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

[83.33]

And they were not sent to be keepers over them.

[83.34]

So today those who believe shall laugh at the unbelievers;

[83.35]

On thrones,
they will look.

[83.36]

Surely the disbelievers are rewarded as they did.
