  1. Woe to those that deal in fraud,-

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

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

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

  5. On a Mighty Day,

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

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

  8. And what will explain to thee whatSijjin 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 theTransgressor beyond bounds the Sinner!

  13. When Our Signs are rehearsed to him, hesays, “Tales of the ancients!”

  14. By no means! but on their hearts is thestain 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 ofHell.

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

  18. Day, verily the record of the Righteousis (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 (toAllah..

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

  24. Thou wilt recognise in their faces thebeaming brightness of Bliss.

  25. Their thirst will be slaked with PureWine sealed:

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

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

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

  29. Those in sin used to laugh at those whobelieved,

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

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

  32. And whenever they saw them, they wouldsay, “Behold! These are the people truly astray!”

  33. But they had not been sent as keepersover them!

  34. But on this Day the Believers will laughat the Unbelievers:

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