83 THE STINTERS (1 – 28)

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

Woe to the stinters who, when they measure against the people, take full measure but, when they measure for them or weigh for them, do skimp. Do those not think that they shall be raised up 5unto a mighty day a day when mankind shall stand before the Lord of all Being?

No indeed; the Book of the libertines is in Sijjin; and what shall teach thee what is Sijjin? A book inscribed. Woe that day unto those who cry it lies, 10who cry lies to the Day of Doom; and none cries lies to it but every guilty aggressor. When Our signs are recited to him, he says, ‘Fairy-tales of the ancients!’ 15No indeed; but that they were earning has rusted upon their hearts. No indeed; but upon that day they shall be veiled from their Lord, then they shall roast in Hell. Then it shall be said to them, ‘This is that you cried lies to.’

No indeed; the book of the pious is in Illiyun; and what shall teach thee what is Illiyun? 20A book inscribed, witnessed by those brought nigh. Surely the pious shall be in bliss, upon couches gazing; thou knowest in their faces the radiancy of bliss 25as they are given to drink of a wine sealed whose seal is musk—so after that let the strivers strive— and whose mixture is Tasnim, a fountain at which do drink those brought nigh.
