Holy Quran Verses from Pickthall's Translation

Surah Tatfiif: Defrauding

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

083.001 Woe unto the defrauders:
083.002 Those who when they take the measure from mankind demand it full,
083.003 But if they measure unto them or weight for them, they cause them loss.
083.004 Do such (men) not consider that they will be raised again
083.005 Unto an Awful Day,
083.006 The day when (all) mankind stand before the Lord of the Worlds?
083.007 Nay, but the record of the vile is in Sijjin -
083.008 Ah! what will convey unto thee what Sijjin is! -
083.009 A written record.
083.010 Woe unto the repudiators on that day!
083.011 Those who deny the Day of Judgment
083.012 Which none denieth save each criminal transgressor,
083.013 Who, when thou readest unto him Our revelations, saith: (Mere) fables of the men of old.
083.014 Nay, but that which they have earned is rust upon their hearts.
083.015 Nay, but surely on that day they will be covered from (the mercy of) their Lord.
083.016 Then lo! they verily will burn in hell,
083.017 And it will be said (unto them): This is that which ye used to deny.
083.018 Nay, but the record of the righteous is in 'Illiyin -
083.019 Ah, what will convey unto thee what 'Illiyin is! -
083.020 A written record,
083.021 Attested by those who are brought near (unto their Lord).
083.022 Lo! the righteous verily are in delight,
083.023 On couches, gazing,
083.024 Thou wilt know in their faces the radiance of delight.
083.025 They are given to drink of a pure wine, sealed,
083.026 Whose seal is musk - for this let (all) those strive who strive for bliss -
083.027 And mixed with water of Tasnim,
083.028 A spring whence those brought near (to Allah) drink.
083.029 Lo! the guilty used to laugh at those who believed,
083.030 And wink one to another when they passed them;
083.031 And when they returned to their own folk, they returned jesting;
083.032 And when they saw them they said: Lo! these have gone astray.
083.033 Yet they were not sent as guardians over them.
083.034 This day it is those who believe who have the laugh of disbelievers,
083.035 On high couches, gazing.
083.036 Are not the disbelievers paid for what they used to do?

 

Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
