The Cheaters (Al-Mutaffifeen)
36 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Spider (Al-Ankaboot) before The Heifer (Al-Baqarah)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Woe to those who give short measure, (1) Who insist on being given full when they take from others, (2) But when they measure out to others or weigh out for them, they are deficient. (3) Do not these think that they shall be raised again (4) On a Mighty Day, (5) A Day whereon mankind shall stand before the Lord of the worlds? (6) Indeed! The record of the wicked is in the Sijjin -- (7) And what will make you know what the Sijjin is? (8) It is a Book inscribed. (9) Woe, that Day, to those who deny [(Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Day of Resurrection, and Al-Qadar (Divine Preordainments)]. (10) those who deny the Day of Judgement. (11) And none can deny it but the Transgressor beyond bounds the Sinner! (12) Who, when thou readest unto him Our revelations, saith: (Mere) fables of the men of old. (13) Not at all but rather their earnings have heaped rust upon their hearts. (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) By no means! Verily the record of the virtuous shall be in 'Illiyun. (18) And what can make you know what is 'illiyyun? (19) It is a comprehensively written Book (of records). (20) Which is witnessed by those brought near [to Allah]. (21) The virtuous will live in bliss, (22) On adorned couches, observing. (23) You will find in their faces the brightness of bliss. (24) They will be given a drink of pure wine, sealed, (25) its seal is musk, for this let the competitors compete; (26) And the admixture of it is a water of Tasnim, (27) A fountain whereof will drink those brought nigh. (28) BEHOLD, those who have abandoned themselves to sin are wont to laugh at such as have attained to faith (29) And when they passed by them, they winked at one another. (30) And whilst returning to their homes, they used to return rejoicing. (31) And when they saw them, they said: "Verily! These have indeed gone astray!" (32) Whereas they have not at all been sent as guardians over them. (33) So today those who believe shall laugh at the unbelievers; (34) On high couches, gazing. (35) Have the unbelievers been rewarded what they were doing? (36)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
