The Cheaters (Al-Mutaffifeen)
36 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Spider (Al-Ankaboot) before The Heifer (Al-Baqarah)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
WOE UNTO THOSE who give short measure: (1) Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, exact full measure, (2) But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due. (3) Do they not know that they are bound to be raised from the dead (4) On a grievous day, (5) The Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) Woe to them! Let them know that the records of the sinner's deeds are in Sijin. (7) And what will explain to thee what Sijjin is? (8) A written record. (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 give the lie to the day of judgment. (11) And none will deny it, except every transgressor, rebel. (12) When Our revelations are recited before him, he says: "These are fables of long ago." (13) No! Rather, the stain has covered their hearts of that which they were earning. (14) Verily, from (the Light of) their Lord, that Day, will they be veiled. (15) and then they shall enter Hell, (16) Then shall it be said: This is what you gave the lie to. (17) Indeed the record of the virtuous is in the highest place, the Illiyin. (18) Ah, what will convey unto thee what 'Illiyin is! - (19) a written record, (20) To which bear witness those Nearest (to Allah). (21) Verily the pious will be in heaven, (22) On thrones, looking (at all things). (23) You will find in their faces the brightness of bliss. (24) They shall be given to drink of a wine that is sealed, (25) its seal will be of musk -- for this let the aspirants aspire -- (26) and whose mixture is Tasnim, (27) a fountain at which do drink those brought nigh. (28) Verily! (During the worldly life) those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who believed. (29) And wink one to another when they passed them; (30) And when they went back to their people turned to make fun of them; (31) and when they saw them said: 'These are they who are astray' (32) But they had not been sent as guardians over them. (33) So this day it is the believers who laugh at the disbelievers. (34) On thrones, they will look. (35) Have those who deny the truth [not] been paid back for their deeds? (36)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
