Number of verses in sura: 36

Order of revelation: 86


[83:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


[83:1]  Woe to the cheaters.


[83:2]  Who demand full measure when receiving from the people.


[83:3]  But when giving them the measures or weights, they cheat.


[83:4]  Do they not know that they will be resurrected?


[83:5]  On a tremendous day?


[83:6]  That is the day when all people will stand before the Lord of the universe.


Numerically Structured Books


[83:7]  Indeed, the book of the wicked is in Sijjeen.


[83:8]  Do you know what Sijjeen is?


[83:9]  A numerically structured book.


[83:10]  Woe on that day to the rejectors.


[83:11]  They do not believe in the Day of Judgment.


[83:12]  None disbelieves therein except the transgressor, the sinful.


[83:13]  When our revelations are recited to him, he says, “Tales from the past!”


[83:14]  Indeed, their hearts have become shielded by their sins.


[83:15]  Indeed, they will be isolated, on that day, from their Lord.


[83:16]  Then they will be thrown into Hell.


[83:17]  They will be told, “This is what you used to deny.”


[83:18]  Indeed, the book of the righteous will be in `Elleyyeen.


[83:19]  Do you know what `Elleyyeen is?


[83:20]  A numerically structured book.


[83:21]  To be witnessed by those close to Me.


[83:22]  The righteous have deserved bliss.


[83:23]  On luxurious furnishings they watch.


[83:24]  You recognize in their faces the joy of bliss.


[83:25]  Their drinks will be spiced with nectar.


[83:26]  Its spice is like musk. This is what the competitors should compete for.


[83:27]  Mixed into it will be special flavors.


[83:28]  From a spring that is reserved for those close to Me.


[83:29]  The wicked used to laugh at those who believed.


[83:30]  When they passed by them, they used to poke fun.


[83:31]  When they got together with their people, they used to joke.


[83:32]  Whenever they saw them, they said, “These people are far astray!


[83:33]  “They have no such thing as (invisible) guards.”


[83:34]  Today, those who believed are laughing at the disbelievers.


[83:35]  On luxurious furnishings they watch.


[83:36]  Most assuredly, the disbelievers are requited for what they did.
