The Cheaters (Al-Mutaffifeen)
36 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Spider (Al-Ankaboot) before The Heifer (Al-Baqarah)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Woe unto the defrauders: (1) those who demand a full measure from others (2) but, when they measure for them or weigh for them, do skimp. (3) Do such people not realize that they will be raised up, (4) For a mighty day, (5) A Day whereon mankind shall stand before the Lord of the worlds? (6) Indeed, the record of the disbelievers is in the lowest place, the Sijjeen. (7) And what can make you know what is sijjeen? (8) A Register inscribed. (9) Woe, then, to those that give the lie, (10) Those who deny the Day of Recompense. (11) And none will deny it, except every transgressor, rebel. (12) When Our verses are recited to him, he says: 'Fictitious tales of the ancients' (13) Nay! But on their hearts is the Ran (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to earn. (14) Verily, from (the Light of) their Lord, that Day, will they be veiled. (15) Then, verily they will indeed enter and taste the burning flame of Hell. (16) Then, it will be said to them: "This is what you used to deny!" (17) Surely the ledger of the pious will be in 'Illiyun (heights above the heights). (18) And what could make thee conceive what that mode most lofty will be? (19) A written record, (20) Witnessed by those who are honoured. (21) Surely the pious shall be in bliss, (22) On adorned couches, observing. (23) On their faces you will see the glow of beatitude. (24) They will be given pure wine to drink, which is kept preserved, sealed. (25) The sealing of it is (with) musk; and for that let the aspirers aspire. (26) a wine tempered with the waters of Tasnim, (27) a spring, the nearest ones to God will drink from it. (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 when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting; (31) And when they saw them, they said: verily these are the strayed ones. (32) And they were not sent to be keepers over them. (33) So, the believers will laugh at the infidels on that day, (34) [for, resting in paradise] on couches, they will look on [and say to themselves]: (35) Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did? (36)
Almighty God's Truth.
