[83.5] Unto an Awful Day,
[83.6] The day when (all) mankind stand before the Lord of the

[83.8] Ah! what will convey unto thee what Sijjin is! -
[83.9] A written record.
[83.10] Woe unto the repudiators on that day!
[83.11] Those who deny the Day of Judgment
[83.12] Which none denieth save each criminal transgressor,
