The Cheaters (Al-Mutaffifeen)
36 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Spider (Al-Ankaboot) before The Heifer (Al-Baqarah)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Woe unto the scrimpers: (1) those who demand a full measure from others (2) And who, when they measure unto them or weigh for them, diminish. (3) Do they not think that they will be called to account?- (4) On a mighty Day. (5) a day when mankind shall stand before the Lord of all Being? (6) Nay! Surely the record of the wicked is (preserved) in Sijjin. (7) And what could make thee conceive what that that mode inescapable will be? (8) (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed. (9) Woe on that Day to those who belied it, (10) those who give the lie to the [coming of] Judgment Day: (11) And none can deny it but the Transgressor beyond bounds the Sinner! (12) [and so,] whenever Our messages are conveyed to them, they but say: "Fables of ancient times!" (13) Not at all but rather their earnings have heaped rust upon their hearts. (14) On the Day of Judgment, they will certainly be barred from the mercy of their Lord. (15) Further, they will enter the Fire of Hell. (16) and they will be told, "This is what you were wont to belie." (17) Nay, but the record of the righteous is in 'Illiyin - (18) And what will make you know what 'Illiyyun is? (19) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed (20) Which is witnessed by the close ones. (21) The virtuous will live in bliss, (22) On couches face to face. (23) Thou wilt recognise in their faces the beaming brightness of Bliss. (24) They will be given pure wine out of sealed containers (25) its seal will be of musk -- for this let the aspirants aspire -- (26) and its mixture is Tasneem, (27) A fountain whereof will drink those brought nigh. (28) The sinners laughed at the believers (29) And, when they passed them, to wink at each other, (30) and, on returning to their people, boast about what they had done. (31) And when they saw them, they would say, "Indeed, those are truly lost." (32) But they had not been sent as guardians over them. (33) So Today those who believed are laughing at the disbelievers, (34) as they sit on couches, gazing around. (35) Have those who deny the truth [not] been paid back for their deeds? (36)
Almighty God's Truth.
