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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Woe unto the scrimpers: (1) Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, exact full measure, (2) but when they have to measure or weigh whatever they owe to others, give less than what is due! (3) Do such people not realize that they will be raised up, (4) For a mighty day, (5) the Day when all men shall stand before the Sustainer of all the worlds? (6) No indeed! Verily the deeds of the wicked are in the Record locked up in the prison-house! (7) and what shall teach thee what is Sijjin? (8) It is a written book. (9) Woe, that Day, to those that deny- (10) Those who belie the Day of Requital. (11) And none gives the lie to it but every exceeder of limits, sinful one (12) who, when Our verses are recited to him, says: “Mere tales of olden times!” (13) Not at all but rather their earnings have heaped rust upon their hearts. (14) No indeed! On that Day they will be screened off from seeing their Lord, (15) Then they will indeed burn in Hell. (16) and it will be said to them: 'This is that which you belied' (17) Surely the ledger of the pious will be in 'Illiyun (heights above the heights). (18) And what will make you know what 'Illiyyun is? (19) A record [indelibly] inscribed, (20) To which bear witness those brought nigh. (21) Indeed the virtuous are in serenity. (22) seated on couches and gazing around in wonder. (23) You will recognize in their faces the brightness of bliss. (24) They will be served the choicest wine, sealed (25) its seal is musk, for this let the competitors compete; (26) With the wine is a drink from Tasnim, (27) a fountain at which do drink those brought nigh. (28) Verily! (During the worldly life) those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who believed. (29) when them passed them by winking at one another, (30) And when they returned to their own folk, they returned jesting; (31) and when they saw them they said, 'Lo, these men are astray!' (32) Yet they were not sent as guardians over them. (33) But on this Day the Believers will laugh at the Unbelievers: (34) upon couches gazing. (35) Surely the disbelievers are rewarded as they did. (36)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
