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 Compassionate, the Merciful
Ruin is for the defrauders. (Those who measure less.) (1) those who, when they are to receive their due from [other] people, demand that it be given in full (2) Whilst when they measure or weigh for them, give less. (3) Do they not think that they will be resurrected (4) on a fateful Day. (5) when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) No indeed; the Book of the libertines is in Sijjin; (7) What could let you know what the Sijjeen is! (8) It is a comprehensively written Book (of records). (9) Woe on that Day to those who belied it, (10) those that give the lie to 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) When Our revelations are conveyed to him, he says, "Fables of the ancients!" (13) No indeed; but that they were earning has rusted upon their hearts. (14) Nay! Surely, they (evil-doers) will be veiled from seeing their Lord that Day. (15) Then indeed, they will [enter and] burn in Hellfire. (16) Further, it will be said to them: "This is the (reality) which ye rejected as false! (17) Indeed the record of the virtuous is in the highest place, the Illiyin. (18) Would that you knew what Illiyin is! (19) (It is) a marked Book, (20) witnessed by those who are near (to Allah). (21) Surely the pious shall be in bliss, (22) [resting on couches, they will look up [to God]: (23) thou knowest in their faces the radiancy of bliss (24) as they are given to drink of a wine sealed (25) Whose seal is musk - for this let (all) those strive who strive for bliss - (26) a wine tempered with the waters of Tasnim, (27) The spring from which drink the ones close to Allah. (28) Verily those who have sinned were wont at those who had believed to laugh, (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 [scornfully], "These men have surely gone astray," (32) But they had not been sent as guardians over them. (33) This day it is those who believe who have the laugh of disbelievers, (34) [for, resting in paradise] on couches, they will look on [and say to themselves]: (35) The infidels have indeed been rewarded for that which they had been doing. (36)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
