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 unto the scrimpers: (1) Those who when they take the measure from others, take it in full! (2) but when they give by measurement or weight to others, they give them less. (3) Do they not think they will be raised (to life) again (4) [and called to account] on an awesome Day (5) the Day when people will stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) NAY, VERILY, the record of the wicked is indeed [set down] in a mode inescapable! (7) And how would you know what the Record of the prison-house is? (8) A record of misdeeds written. (9) Woe, on that Day, to those who reject, (10) Who give the lie to the day of judgment. (11) And none belieth it save each trespasser, sinner. (12) When Our Signs are rehearsed to him, he says, "Tales of the ancients!" (13) No indeed; but that they were earning has rusted upon their hearts. (14) Nay, verily, from [the grace of] their Sustainer shall they on that Day be debarred; (15) They will suffer the heat of fire (16) Further, it will be said to them: "This is the (reality) which ye rejected as false! (17) However, the records of the deeds of the virtuous ones will certainly be in Illiyin. (18) And what will explain to thee what 'Illiyun is? (19) A Register inscribed. (20) Witnessed by those who are honoured. (21) Lo! the righteous verily are in delight, (22) On couches, gazing, (23) You will recognise the freshness of serenity on their faces. (24) They will be given a drink of pure wine, sealed, (25) The last thereof (that wine) will be the smell of musk, and for this let (all) those strive who want to strive (i.e. hasten earnestly to the obedience of Allah). (26) With the wine is a drink from Tasnim, (27) A spring whence those brought near (to Allah) drink. (28) BEHOLD, those who have abandoned themselves to sin are wont to laugh at such as have attained to faith (29) And wink one to another when they passed them; (30) And when they returned to their own followers they returned exulting. (31) And when they saw them, they said: "They have indeed gone astray." (32) Yet they were not sent as watchers over them. (33) Wherefore Today, those who believed at the infidels are laughing, (34) while reclining on couches and reviewing (the bounties given to them). (35) Have the unbelievers been rewarded for what they did? (36)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
