Qur'an

  Revealed 86th  

83:1
Woe to those who give less [than due],

83:2
Who, when they take a measure from people, take in full.

83:3
But if they give by measure or by weight to them, they cause loss.

83:4
Do they not think that they will be resurrected

83:5
For a tremendous Day -

83:6
The Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the worlds?

83:7
No!  Indeed, the record of the wicked is in sijjeen.

83:8
And what can make you know what is sijjeen?

83:9
It is a written book.

83:10
Woe, that Day, to the deniers,

83:11
Who deny the Day of Recompense.

83:12
And none deny it except every sinful transgressor.

83:13
When Our verses are recited to him, he says, "Legends of the former peoples."

83:14
No!  Rather, the stain has covered their hearts of that which they were earning.

83:15
No!  Indeed, from their Lord, that Day, they will be partitioned.

83:16
Then indeed, they will [enter and] burn in Hellfire.

83:17
Then it will be said [to them], "This is what you used to deny."

83:18
No!  Indeed, the record of the righteous is in 'illiyyun.

83:19
And what can make you know what is 'illiyyun?

83:20
It is a written book [*Exodus 32:32 - 33*Psalms 69:28, *Malachi 3:16, *Revelation 20:15*Shepherd of Hermas 51:9]

83:21
Which is witnessed by those brought near [to God].

83:22
Indeed, the righteous will be in pleasure

83:23
On adorned couches, observing.

83:24
You will recognize in their faces the radiance of pleasure.

83:25
They will be given to drink [pure] wine [which was] sealed.

83:26
The last of it is musk.  So for this let the competitors compete.

83:27
And its mixture is of Tasneem,

83:28
A spring from which those near [to God] drink.

83:29
Indeed, those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who believed.

83:30
And when they passed by them, they would exchange derisive glances.

83:31
And when they returned to their people, they would return jesting.

83:32
And when they saw them, they would say, "Indeed, those are truly lost."

83:33
But they had not been sent as guardians over them.

83:34
So Today those who believed are laughing at the disbelievers,

83:35
On adorned couches, observing.

83:36
Have the disbelievers [not] been rewarded [this Day] for what they used to do?
