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 THOSE who give short measure, (1) Who insist on being given full when they take from others, (2) but when they measure or weigh, give less. (3) Do they not realise that they will be raised to life (4) for a great Day, (5) the Day when people will stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) Nay! Surely the record of the wicked is (preserved) in Sijjin. (7) and what shall teach thee what is Sijjin? (8) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed. (9) Woe, that Day, to those that deny- (10) those who deny the Day of Judgement. (11) and none cries lies to it but every guilty aggressor. (12) When Our verses are recited to him, he says, "Legends of the former peoples." (13) No indeed! The truth is that their hearts have become rusted on account of their evil deeds. (14) No! Indeed, from their Lord, that Day, they will be partitioned. (15) then they shall roast in Hell. (16) Then it shall be said to them, 'This is that you cried lies to.' (17) Surely the ledger of the pious will be in 'Illiyun (heights above the heights). (18) And what will make thee know whatsoever the record in Illiyun is? (19) (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed, (20) witnessed by all who have [ever] been drawn close unto God. (21) Indeed the virtuous are in serenity. (22) seated on couches and gazing around in wonder. (23) Thou wilt recognize in their faces the brightness of delight. (24) They will be given to drink pure sealed wine. (25) The seal thereof will be Musk: And for this let those aspire, who have aspirations: (26) It (that wine) will be mixed with Tasnim. (27) a spring at which those drawn close to God will drink. (28) Verily those who have sinned were wont at those who had believed to laugh, (29) And whenever they passed by them, used to wink at each other (in mockery); (30) When they returned to their people they returned jesting; (31) And when they saw them, they said: verily these are the strayed ones. (32) But they were not Sent to be guardians over them! (33) But this Day (the Day of Resurrection) those who believe will laugh at the disbelievers (34) as they sit on couches, gazing around. (35) Have the unbelievers been rewarded for what they did? (36)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
