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
WOE UNTO THOSE who give short measure: (1) Who, when they take a measure from people, take in full. (2) but when they measure or weigh for others, they reduce! (3) Do they not think that they will be called to account?- (4) For a mighty day, (5) the Day when people will stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) Nay! most surely the record of the wicked is in the Sijjin. (7) And what will explain to thee what Sijjin is? (8) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed. (9) Woe on that Day unto those who give the lie to the truth (10) Those that deny the Day of Judgment. (11) No one rejects it except the sinful transgressors (12) When Our verses are recited to him, he says, "Legends of the former peoples." (13) No indeed; but that they were earning has rusted upon their hearts. (14) By no means! Verily on that Day from their Lord they will be shut out. (15) They will suffer the heat of fire (16) Then it shall be said to them, 'This is that you cried lies to.' (17) No indeed! Verily, the deeds of the virtuous shall be in the record of the exalted ones. (18) And what will explain to thee what 'Illiyun is? (19) It is a written book, (20) witnessed by those brought nigh. (21) Behold, [in the life to come] the truly virtuous will indeed be in bliss: (22) (reclining) upon couches they will gaze, (23) You will recognize in their faces the radiance of pleasure. (24) They will be given to drink of pure wine, sealed. (25) With a sealing of musk, which those who aspire for the best should desire, -- (26) for it is composed of all that is most exalting (27) A fountain from which drink they who are drawn near (to Allah). (28) Indeed the guilty used to laugh at the believers. (29) when they passed by them, they would wink at one another; (30) And when they returned to their household they returned jesting. (31) and whenever they see those [who believe,] they say: "Behold, these [people] have indeed gone astray!" (32) Whereas they were not sent over them as watchers. (33) So today those who believe shall laugh at the unbelievers; (34) Regarding them from their cushioned seats. (35) The infidels have indeed been rewarded for that which they had been doing. (36)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
