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 Most Merciful
Woe to those who give short measure, (1) Who, when they take the measure (of their dues) from men take it fully, (2) but when they have to measure or weigh whatever they owe to others, give less than what is due! (3) Do they not think they will be raised (to life) again (4) For a tremendous Day - (5) a day when mankind shall stand before the Lord of all Being? (6) By no means! Verily the record of the ungodly is in Sijjin. (7) And how would you know what the Record of the prison-house is? (8) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed. (9) Woe, on that Day, to those who reject, (10) Those who belie the Day of Requital. (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) No indeed! Their own deeds have cast a veil over their hearts. (14) Yes indeed they will be deprived of seeing their Lord on that day. (15) Then indeed they have to enter hell. (16) whereafter they will be told: “This is what you used to give the lie to.” (17) Nay, but the record of the righteous is in 'Illiyin - (18) Would that you knew what Illiyin is! (19) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed (20) witnessed by those who are near (to Allah). (21) The virtuous will live in bliss, (22) Reclining on couches, looking on. (23) You can trace on their faces the joy of their bliss. (24) Their thirst will be slaked with Pure Wine sealed: (25) With a sealing of musk, which those who aspire for the best should desire, -- (26) and its mixture is Tasneem, (27) A spring whereof drink those nearest to Allah. (28) Indeed the guilty used to laugh at the believers. (29) When passing by them, they would wink at one another (30) And when they returned to their own folk, they returned jesting; (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) But on this Day the believers will laugh at the unbelievers (34) Reclining on couches, looking on. (35) Have the unbelievers been rewarded for what they did? (36)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
