;

1 . Woe to those that deal in fraud,-

2 . Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, exact full measure,

3 . But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due.

4 . Do they not think that they will be called to account?-

5 . On a Mighty Day,

6 . A Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the Worlds?

7 . Nay! Surely the record of the wicked is (preserved) in Sijjin.

8 . And what will explain to thee what Sijjin is?

9 . (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed.

10 . Woe, that Day, to those that deny-

11 . Those that deny the Day of Judgment.

12 . And none can deny it but the Transgressor beyond bounds the Sinner!

13 . When Our Signs are rehearsed to him, he says, "Tales of the ancients!"

14 . By no means! but on their hearts is the stain of the (ill) which they do!

15 . Verily, from (the Light of) their Lord, that Day, will they be veiled.

16 . Further, they will enter the Fire of Hell.

17 . Further, it will be said to them: "This is the (reality) which ye rejected as false!

18 . Day, verily the record of the Righteous is (preserved) in ´Illiyin.

19 . And what will explain to thee what ´Illiyun is?

20 . (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed,

21 . To which bear witness those Nearest (to Allah).

22 . Truly the Righteous will be in Bliss:

23 . On Thrones (of Dignity) will they command a sight (of all things):

24 . Thou wilt recognise in their faces the beaming brightness of Bliss.

25 . Their thirst will be slaked with Pure Wine sealed:

26 . The seal thereof will be Musk: And for this let those aspire, who have aspirations:

27 . With it will be (given) a mixture of Tasnim:

28 . A spring, from (the waters) whereof drink those Nearest to Allah.

29 . Those in sin used to laugh at those who believed,

30 . And whenever they passed by them, used to wink at each other (in mockery);

31 . And when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting;

32 . And whenever they saw them, they would say, "Behold! These are the people truly astray!"

33 . But they had not been sent as keepers over them!

34 . But on this Day the Believers will laugh at the Unbelievers:

35 . On Thrones (of Dignity) they will command (a sight) (of all things).

36 . Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did?
