Al Mutaffifîn
Surah 83. Defrauding, The Cheats, Cheating


83:1 Woe to those that deal in fraud,
Waylun lilmutaffifeena
83:2 Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, exact full measure,
Allatheena itha iktalooAAala alnnasi yastawfoona
83:3 But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due.
Wa-itha kaloohum aw wazanoohumyukhsiroona
83:4 Do they not think that they will be called to account?-
Ala yathunnu ola-ikaannahum mabAAoothoona
83:5 On a Mighty Day,
Liyawmin AAatheemin
83:6 A Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the Worlds?
Yawma yaqoomu alnnasu lirabbialAAalameena
83:7 Day! Surely the record of the wicked is (preserved) in Sijjin.
Kalla inna kitaba alfujjarilafee sijjeenin
83:8 And what will explain to thee what Sijjin is?
Wama adraka ma sijjeenun
83:9 (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed.
Kitabun marqoomun
83:10 Woe, that Day, to those that deny-
Waylun yawma-ithin lilmukaththibeena
83:11 Those that deny the Day of Judgment.
Allatheena yukaththiboonabiyawmi alddeeni
83:12 And none can deny it but the Transgressor beyond bounds the Sinner!
Wama yukaththibu bihi illakullu muAAtadin atheemin
83:13 When Our Signs are rehearsed to him, he says, “Tales of the ancients!”
Itha tutla AAalayhi ayatunaqala asateeru al-awwaleena
83:14 By no means! but on their hearts is the stain of the (ill) which they do!
Kalla bal rana AAalaquloobihim ma kanoo yaksiboona
83:15 Verily, from (the Light of) their Lord, that Day, will they be veiled.
Kalla innahum AAan rabbihim yawma-ithinlamahjooboona
83:16 Further, they will enter the Fire of Hell.
Thumma innahum lasaloo aljaheemi
83:17 Further, it will be said to them: “This is the (reality) which ye rejected as false!
Thumma yuqalu hatha allatheekuntum bihi tukaththiboona
83:18 Day, verily the record of the Righteous is (preserved) in ‘Illiyin.
Kalla inna kitaba al-abrarilafee AAilliyyeena
83:19 And what will explain to thee what ‘Illiyun is?
Wama adraka maAAilliyyoona
83:20 (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed,
Kitabun marqoomun
83:21 To which bear witness those Nearest (to Allah).
Yashhaduhu almuqarraboona
83:22 Truly the Righteous will be in Bliss:
Inna al-abrara lafee naAAeemin
83:23 On Thrones (of Dignity) will they command a sight (of all things):
AAala al-ara-iki yanthuroona
83:24 Thou wilt recognise in their faces the beaming brightness of Bliss.
TaAArifu fee wujoohihim nadrata alnnaAAeemi
83:25 Their thirst will be slaked with Pure Wine sealed:
Yusqawna min raheeqin makhtoomin
83:26 The seal thereof will be Musk: And for this let those aspire, who have aspirations:
Khitamuhu miskun wafee thalikafalyatanafasi almutanafisoona
83:27 With it will be (given) a mixture of Tasnim:
Wamizajuhu min tasneemin
83:28 A spring, from (the waters) whereof drink those Nearest to Allah.
AAaynan yashrabu biha almuqarraboona
83:29 Those in sin used to laugh at those who believed,
Inna allatheena ajramoo kanoomina allatheena amanoo yadhakoona
83:30 And whenever they passed by them, used to wink at each other (in mockery);
Wa-itha marroo bihim yataghamazoona
83:31 And when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting;
Wa-itha inqalaboo ila ahlihimuinqalaboo fakiheena
83:32 And whenever they saw them, they would say, “Behold! These are the people truly astray!”
Wa-itha raawhum qaloo inna haola-iladalloona
83:33 But they had not been sent as keepers over them!
Wama orsiloo AAalayhim hafitheena
83:34 But on this Day the Believers will laugh at the Unbelievers:
Faalyawma allatheena amanoomina alkuffari yadhakoona
83:35 On Thrones (of Dignity) they will command (a sight) (of all things).
AAala al-ara-iki yanthuroona
83:36 Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did?
Hal thuwwiba alkuffaru ma kanooyafAAaloona
