The Cheaters (Al-Mutaffifeen)
36 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Spider (Al-Ankaboot) before The Heifer (Al-Baqarah)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Woe to the stinters who, (1) those who demand a full measure from others (2) but who, when they measure or weigh for others, give less than their due. (3) Do they not think that they will be resurrected (4) [and called to account] on an awesome Day (5) A Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) Nay! most surely the record of the wicked is in the Sijjin. (7) What could let you know what the Sijjeen is! (8) The record is a sealed text. (9) Woe, that Day, to the deniers, (10) those that give the lie to the Day of Recompense. (11) Which none denieth save each criminal transgressor, (12) When Our communications are recited to him, he says: Stories of those of yore. (13) Not at all but rather their earnings have heaped rust upon their hearts. (14) Nay! Surely, they (evil-doers) will be veiled from seeing their Lord that Day. (15) Then, verily they will indeed enter and taste the burning flame of Hell. (16) And it will be said (unto them): This is that which ye used to deny. (17) By no means! Verily the record of the virtuous shall be in 'Illiyun. (18) What could let you know what the 'Illiyoon is! (19) It is a written book, (20) which those angels closest to God will bear witness to. (21) The virtuous will live in bliss, (22) On thrones, looking (at all things). (23) You will recognise in their faces the brightness of delight. (24) They are given to drink of a pure wine, sealed, (25) pouring forth with a fragrance of musk. To that [wine of paradise,] then, let all such aspire as [are willing to] aspire to things of high account: (26) for it is composed of all that is most exalting (27) A spring, from (the waters) whereof drink those Nearest to Allah. (28) Indeed, those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who believed. (29) When passing by them, they would wink at one another (30) And when they returned to their own folk, they returned jesting; (31) and when they saw them, they said [scornfully], "These men have surely gone astray," (32) Yet they were not sent as guardians over them. (33) So today those who believe shall laugh at the unbelievers; (34) On high thrones, watching. (35) Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did? (36)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
