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 benevolent, ever-merciful
Woe to those that deal in fraud,- (1) Those who when they take the measure from mankind demand it full, (2) but when they measure or weigh, give less. (3) Think they not that they will be resurrected (for reckoning), (4) [and called to account] on an awesome 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 explain to thee what Sijjin is? (8) A record [indelibly] inscribed! (9) Woe on that Day unto the beliers (10) Who deny the Day of Recompense. (11) for, none gives the lie to it but such as are wont to transgress against all that is [and are] immersed in sin: (12) And when Our revelations are rehearsed unto him, he saith: fables of the ancients! (13) No! Rather, the stain has covered their hearts of that which they were earning. (14) Nay! Surely, they (evil-doers) will be veiled from seeing their Lord that Day. (15) and then they shall enter Hell, (16) and it will be said to them: 'This is that which you belied' (17) By no means! Verily the record of the virtuous shall be in 'Illiyun. (18) And what could make thee conceive what that mode most lofty will be? (19) It is a Book inscribed, (20) which the angels placed near Allah to safeguard. (21) Indeed the virtuous are in serenity. (22) On couches, gazing, (23) On their faces you will see the glow of beatitude. (24) They will be given to drink of pure wine, sealed. (25) The seal thereof will be Musk: And for this let those aspire, who have aspirations: (26) and its mixture is Tasneem, (27) The spring from which drink the ones close to Allah. (28) Surely they who are guilty used to laugh at those who believe. (29) And wink one to another when they passed them; (30) And when they went back to their people turned to make fun of them; (31) And when they saw them, they said: "Verily! These have indeed gone astray!" (32) But they (disbelievers, sinners) had not been sent as watchers over them (the believers). (33) But on the Day [of Judgment,] they who had attained to faith will [be able to] laugh at the [erstwhile] deniers of the truth: (34) upon couches gazing. (35) Will not the infidels pay for what they had done? (36)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
