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 to those who give short measure, (1) who, when people measure for them, take 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 great day (5) The day when (all) mankind stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) No! Indeed, the record of the wicked is in sijjeen. (7) And what will explain to thee what Sijjin is? (8) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed. (9) Woe, that Day, to the deniers, (10) Who deny the Day of Recompense. (11) And none can deny it except every transgressor beyond bounds, (in disbelief, oppression and disobedience of Allah, the sinner!) (12) When Our revelations are conveyed to him, he says, "Fables of the ancients!" (13) No indeed! The truth is that their hearts have become rusted on account of their evil deeds. (14) Nay, but surely on that day they will be covered from (the mercy of) their Lord. (15) then they shall roast in Hell. (16) and it will be said to them: 'This is that which you belied' (17) But, the Book of the righteous is in the 'Illiyoon. (18) And what can make you know what is 'illiyyun? (19) (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed, (20) To which bear witness those nearest (to Allah, i.e. the angels). (21) Behold, [in the life to come] the truly virtuous will indeed be in bliss: (22) On thrones, watching. (23) On their faces you will see the glow of beatitude. (24) Their thirst will be slaked with Pure Wine sealed: (25) The seal thereof will be of musk. And to this end let the aspirers aspire (26) and whose mixture is Tasnim, (27) a spring at which those drawn close to God will drink. (28) Indeed, those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who believed. (29) and whenever they pass by them, they wink at one another [derisively]; (30) and when they returned to their people they returned blithely, (31) And whenever they saw them, they would say, "Behold! These are the people truly astray!" (32) (they said so although) they had not been appointed watchers over them. (33) But on this Day the believers will laugh at the unbelievers (34) as they (recline) upon their couches and gaze (around them). (35) Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did? (36)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
