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 Al-Mutaffifin [those who give less in measure and weight (decrease the rights of others)], (1) those who, when they take from others by measure, take their full share; (2) And when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due. (3) Think they not that they will be resurrected (for reckoning), (4) For a mighty day, (5) The Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the worlds? (6) No! Indeed, the record of the wicked is in sijjeen. (7) What could let you know what the Sijjeen is! (8) A book inscribed. (9) Woe, that Day, to those who deny [(Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Day of Resurrection, and Al-Qadar (Divine Preordainments)]. (10) who belied the Day of Recompense! (11) None belies it except every guilty sinner. (12) [and so,] whenever Our messages are conveyed to them, they but say: "Fables of ancient times!" (13) Nay! rather, what they used to do has become like rust upon their hearts. (14) Nay, verily, from [the grace of] their Sustainer shall they on that Day be debarred; (15) Then verily they will be roasted into the Scorch. (16) They will then be told: "This is what you had denied." (17) Nay! Most surely the record of the righteous shall be in the Iliyin. (18) And what do you know what the Record of the exalted ones is? (19) a written record, (20) Attested by those who are brought near (unto their Lord). (21) Lo! the righteous verily are in delight, (22) upon couches gazing; (23) Thou wilt know in their faces the radiance of delight. (24) Their thirst will be slaked with Pure Wine sealed: (25) The seal thereof will be Musk: And for this let those aspire, who have aspirations: (26) With it will be (given) a mixture of Tasnim: (27) a fountain at which the chosen ones shall drink. (28) Behold, the sinners were laughing at the believers, (29) when them passed them by winking at one another, (30) and, on returning to their people, boast about what they had done. (31) And when they saw them, they said: verily these are the strayed ones. (32) (they said so although) they had not been appointed watchers over them. (33) So Today those who believed are laughing at the disbelievers, (34) [for, resting in paradise] on couches, they will look on [and say to themselves]: (35) Have the unbelievers been rewarded for what they did? (36)
Almighty God's Truth.
