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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Woe to those that deal in fraud,- (1) Those who, when they take by measure from mankind, exact the full, (2) but when they measure or weigh for others, they reduce! (3) Do they not realise that they will be raised to life (4) on a fateful Day. (5) a Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) No indeed; the Book of the libertines is in Sijjin; (7) And what could make thee conceive what that that mode inescapable will be? (8) It is a comprehensively written Book (of records). (9) Woe that day unto those who cry it lies, (10) Those 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 so,] whenever Our messages are conveyed to them, they but say: "Fables of ancient times!" (13) Nay! But on their hearts is the Ran (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to earn. (14) By no means! Verily on that Day from their Lord they will be shut out. (15) and then they shall enter Hell, (16) and who will be told, "This is what you had called a lie". (17) Indeed the record of the virtuous is in the highest place, the Illiyin. (18) And what will make you know what 'Illiyyun is? (19) It is a (repository of) distinctly written record (20) The ones nearest to God will bring it to public. (21) Surely the pious shall be in bliss, (22) On couches, gazing, (23) You will recognise in their faces the brightness of delight. (24) They are made to quaff of a pure drink that is sealed (to others). (25) The last of it is musk. So for this let the competitors compete. (26) And admixture thereof will be Water of Tasnim: (27) a fountain at which those brought near (to their Lord) drink. (28) Those in sin used to laugh at those who believed, (29) And when the believers used to pass by, they used to gesture at each other with their eyes. (30) and when they went back to their families, they went back jesting, (31) And whenever they saw them, they would say, "Behold! These are the people truly astray!" (32) Whereas they have not at all been sent as guardians over them. (33) So, the believers will laugh at the infidels on that day, (34) On high thrones, watching. (35) Are not the disbelievers paid (fully) for what they used to do? (36)
Almighty God's Truth.
