1Woe to those that deal in fraud.
2Those who when they have to receive by measure from men exact
3But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give
less than due.
4Do they not think that they will be called to account?
5On a mighty day
6A day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the worlds?
7No, surely the record of the wicked is in Sijjin
8And what will explain to you what Sijjin is?
9A register inscribed.
10Woe that day to those that deny;
11Those that deny the day of judgment.

15Verily, from their Lord that day will they be veiled.
16Further, they will enter the fire of hell.
17Further, it will be said to them: “This is that which you
rejected as false!”
18No, verily, the record of the righteous is in Illiyin.
19And what will explain to you what Illiyin is?
20A register inscribed.
21To which bear witness those nearest.
22Truly, the righteous will be in bliss:
23On thrones will they command a sight:

26The seal thereof will be musk: and for this let those aspire
who have aspirations:
27And with it will be a mixture of Tasnim:
28A spring from whereof drink those nearest to Allah.
29Those in sin used to laugh at those who believed;
30And whenever they passed by them used to wink at each other;
31And when they returned to their own people they would return
32And whenever they saw them they would say “Behold! these are
the people truly astray!”
33But they had not been sent as keepers over them!

3. Tasnim is explained in verse 28 as a
fountain for those nearest to Allah.

35On thrones will they command.
36Will not the unbelievers have been paid back for what they did?
