The Cheaters (Al-Mutaffifeen)
36 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Spider (Al-Ankaboot) before The Heifer (Al-Baqarah)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
WOE TO THOSE who give short measure, (1) Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, demand full measure, (2) but when they measure or weigh, give less. (3) Do they not think they will be raised (to life) again (4) Unto an Awful Day, (5) a Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) No! Indeed, the record of the wicked is in sijjeen. (7) And what will make thee know whatsoever the record in Sijjin is? (8) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed. (9) Woe, on that Day, to those who reject, (10) Those that deny the Day of Judgment. (11) No one denies it except for the evil aggressor. (12) who, when listening to Our revelations, say, "These are only ancient legends". (13) By no means! but on their hearts is the stain of the (ill) which they do! (14) Nay, verily, from [the grace of] their Sustainer shall they on that Day be debarred; (15) Then, verily they will indeed enter and taste the burning flame of Hell. (16) and who will be told, "This is what you had called a lie". (17) No indeed! Verily, the deeds of the virtuous shall be in the record of the exalted ones. (18) Ah, what will convey unto thee what 'Illiyin is! - (19) It is a written book, (20) witnessed by all who have [ever] been drawn close unto God. (21) The virtuous will surely be in bliss, (22) seated on couches and gazing around in wonder. (23) You will recognise the freshness of serenity on their faces. (24) They are given to drink of a pure wine, sealed, (25) Its seal is upon musk; and for this should those who crave be eager. (26) With the wine is a drink from Tasnim, (27) A fountain whereof will drink those brought nigh. (28) Indeed the guilty used to laugh at the believers. (29) And when they passed by them, they would exchange derisive glances. (30) And when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting; (31) And when they saw them, they said: Most surely these are in error; (32) And withal, they have no call to watch over [the beliefs of] others... (33) So this day it is the believers who laugh at the disbelievers. (34) On adorned couches, observing. (35) Have the disbelievers [not] been rewarded [this Day] for what they used to do? (36)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
