;

1 . Woe unto the defrauders:

2 . Those who when they take the measure from mankind demand it full,

3 . But if they measure unto them or weight for them, they cause them loss.

4 . Do such (men) not consider that they will be raised again

5 . Unto an Awful Day,

6 . The day when (all) mankind stand before the Lord of the Worlds?

7 . Nay, but the record of the vile is in Sijjin -

8 . Ah! what will convey unto thee what Sijjin is! -

9 . A written record.

10 . Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

11 . Those who deny the Day of Judgment

12 . Which none denieth save each criminal transgressor,

13 . Who, when thou readest unto him Our revelations, saith: (Mere) fables of the men of old.

14 . Nay, but that which they have earned is rust upon their hearts.

15 . Nay, but surely on that day they will be covered from (the mercy of) their Lord.

16 . Then lo! they verily will burn in hell,

17 . And it will be said (unto them): This is that which ye used to deny.

18 . Nay, but the record of the righteous is in ´Illiyin -

19 . Ah, what will convey unto thee what ´Illiyin is! -

20 . A written record,

21 . Attested by those who are brought near (unto their Lord).

22 . Lo! the righteous verily are in delight,

23 . On couches, gazing,

24 . Thou wilt know in their faces the radiance of delight.

25 . They are given to drink of a pure wine, sealed,

26 . Whose seal is musk - for this let (all) those strive who strive for bliss -

27 . And mixed with water of Tasnim,

28 . A spring whence those brought near (to Allah) drink.

29 . Lo! the guilty used to laugh at those who believed,

30 . And wink one to another when they passed them;

31 . And when they returned to their own folk, they returned jesting;

32 . And when they saw them they said: Lo! these have gone astray.

33 . Yet they were not sent as guardians over them.

34 . This day it is those who believe who have the laugh of disbelievers,

35 . On high couches, gazing.

36 . Are not the disbelievers paid for what they used to do?
