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 Merciful, the Most Merciful
Woe to Al-Mutaffifin [those who give less in measure and weight (decrease the rights of others)], (1) Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, demand full measure, (2) but when they give by measurement or weight to others, they give them less. (3) Imagine such men not that they shall be raised up? (4) unto a mighty day (5) when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) No indeed; the Book of the libertines is in Sijjin; (7) And what do you know, how (wretched) the Sijjeen is! (8) It is a Book inscribed. (9) Woe, on that Day, to those who reject, (10) who cry lies to the Day of Doom; (11) And none can deny it except every transgressor beyond bounds, (in disbelief, oppression and disobedience of Allah, the sinner!) (12) When you recite Our verses to him, he says, “Stories of earlier men!” (13) They will never have faith. In fact, their hearts are stained from their deeds. (14) Nay! most surely they shall on that day be debarred from their Lord. (15) and then they shall enter Hell, (16) And it will be said (unto them): This is that which ye used to deny. (17) Nay, but the record of the righteous is in 'Illiyin - (18) Would that you knew what Illiyin is! (19) a written record, (20) Those who are drawn near (to Allah) shall witness it. (21) Indeed, the righteous will be in pleasure (22) On Thrones (of Dignity) will they command a sight (of all things): (23) You will recognize in their faces the brightness of bliss. (24) They will be given to drink of pure wine, sealed. (25) which have the fragrance of musk. This is the kind of place for which one should really aspire. (26) With it will be (given) a mixture of Tasnim: (27) a source [of bliss] whereof those who are drawn close unto God shall drink. (28) Indeed, those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who believed. (29) And when they passed by them, they winked at one another. (30) and when they returned to their people they returned blithely, (31) and when they saw the believers, they said: “Lo! These are the erring ones”; (32) No one has appointed them to watch over the believers. (33) So today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers, (34) On thrones, they will look. (35) Have the unbelievers been rewarded for what they did? (36)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
