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 Compassionate
Woe to the stinters who, (1) Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, exact full measure, (2) But when they measure out to others or weigh out for them, they are deficient. (3) Do they not realize that they will be resurrected (4) on a fateful Day. (5) The Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) Indeed! The record of the wicked is in the Sijjin -- (7) How will you comprehend what Sijjin is? (8) it is a written record. (9) Woe unto the repudiators on that day! (10) Who give the lie to the day of judgment. (11) None belies it except every guilty sinner. (12) [and so,] whenever Our messages are conveyed to them, they but say: "Fables of ancient times!" (13) No! Rather, the stain has covered their hearts of that which they were earning. (14) Yes indeed they will be deprived of seeing their Lord on that day. (15) Then indeed, they will [enter and] burn in Hellfire. (16) and be told: "This is the [very thing] to which you were wont to give the lie!" (17) But, the Book of the righteous is in the 'Illiyoon. (18) And what will make you know what 'Illiyyun is? (19) A written record, (20) which those angels closest to God will bear witness to. (21) The righteous shall indeed be blissful, (22) resting on couches, looking around. (23) You will recognize in their faces the radiance of pleasure. (24) They will be given pure wine to drink, which is kept preserved, sealed. (25) The seal thereof will be Musk: And for this let those aspire, who have aspirations: (26) Blended with the water of Tasnim, (heights ultimate of evolution), (27) a spring at which those drawn close to God will drink. (28) The sinners laughed at the believers (29) And when the believers used to pass by, they used to gesture at each other with their eyes. (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) But they had not been sent as guardians over them. (33) But today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers; (34) On high thrones, watching. (35) Have the unbelievers been duly rewarded for their deeds? (36)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
