بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
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 . Nay, 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?
