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 Merciful, the Compassionate
Woe to the diminishers, (1) who demand of other people full measure for themselves, (2) but when they measure or weigh for others, they reduce! (3) Do such people not realize that they will be raised up, (4) On a mighty Day. (5) when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) Indeed, the record of the disbelievers is in the lowest place, the Sijjeen. (7) And what will make you know what Sijjin is? (8) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed. (9) Woe that day unto those who cry it lies, (10) who belied the Day of Recompense! (11) Which none denieth save each criminal transgressor, (12) who, when Our verses are recited to him, says: “Mere tales of olden times!” (13) No! Rather, the stain has covered their hearts of that which they were earning. (14) On the Day of Judgment, they will certainly be barred from the mercy of their Lord. (15) Then lo! they verily will burn in hell, (16) Then it shall be said to them, 'This is that you cried lies to.' (17) Nay! Verily, the Record (writing of the deeds) of Al-Abrar (the pious who fear Allah and avoid evil), is (preserved) in 'Illiyyun. (18) And what will make thee know whatsoever the record in Illiyun is? (19) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed (20) To which bear witness those nearest (to Allah, i.e. the angels). (21) Behold, [in the life to come] the truly virtuous will indeed be in bliss: (22) Reclining on couches, looking on. (23) Thou wilt recognise in their faces the beaming brightness of Bliss. (24) They will be given a drink of pure wine, sealed, (25) Whose seal is musk - for this let (all) those strive who strive for bliss - (26) a wine tempered with the waters of Tasnim, (27) A fountain from which only they who are honoured drink. (28) Behold, the wicked were wont to laugh at the believers: (29) When passing by them, they would wink at one another (30) and when they returned to their people they returned blithely, (31) And upon seeing the Muslims, they used to say, “Indeed they have gone astray.” (32) And they were not sent to be keepers over them. (33) So today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers, (34) On (high) thrones, looking (at all things). (35) Have the unbelievers been rewarded what they were doing? (36)
Almighty God's Truth.
