83: The Defrauding

83:1 Woe unto the defrauders: (83:1-3) "Woe unto the defrauders."
Don't defraud.
83:2 Those who when they take the measure from mankind demand it full,
83:3 But if they measure unto them or weight for them, they cause them loss.
83:4 Do such (men) not consider that they will be raised again
83:5 Unto an Awful Day,
83:6 The day when (all) mankind stand before the Lord of the Worlds ?
83:7 Nay, but the record of the vile is in Sijjin -
83:8 Ah! what will convey unto thee what Sijjin is! -
83:9 A written record.
83:10 Woe unto the repudiators on that day! (83:10-16)
Those who reject Allah's revelations will burn in hell.
Hell in the Quran
83:11 Those who deny the Day of Judgment
83:12 Which none denieth save each criminal transgressor,
83:13 Who, when thou readest unto him Our revelations, saith: (Mere) fables of the men of old.
83:14 Nay, but that which they have earned is rust upon their hearts.
83:15 Nay, but surely on that day they will be covered from (the mercy of) their Lord.
83:16 Then lo! they verily will burn in hell,
83:17 And it will be said (unto them): This is that which ye used to deny.
83:18 Nay, but the record of the righteous is in 'Illiyin -
83:19 Ah, what will convey unto thee what 'Illiyin is! -
83:20 A written record,
83:21 Attested by those who are brought near (unto their Lord).
83:22 Lo! the righteous verily are in delight,
83:23 On couches, gazing,
83:24 Thou wilt know in their faces the radiance of delight.
83:25 They are given to drink of a pure wine, sealed,
83:26 Whose seal is musk - for this let (all) those strive who strive for bliss -
83:27 And mixed with water of Tasnim,
83:28 A spring whence those brought near (to Allah) drink.
83:29 Lo! the guilty used to laugh at those who believed, (83:29-36)
The disbelievers used to laugh at the believers. But the final laugh will be on them.
83:30 And wink one to another when they passed them;
83:31 And when they returned to their own folk, they returned jesting;
83:32 And when they saw them they said: Lo! these have gone astray.
83:33 Yet they were not sent as guardians over them.
83:34 This day it is those who believe who have the laugh of disbelievers,
83:35 On high couches, gazing.
83:36 Are not the disbelievers paid for what they used to do ?
