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) Those who when they take the measure from others, take it in full! (2) but when they measure or weigh for others, they reduce! (3) Do they not know that they are bound to be raised from the dead (4) Unto an Awful Day, (5) The Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the worlds? (6) Woe to them! Let them know that the records of the sinner's deeds are in Sijin. (7) How will you comprehend what Sijjin is? (8) A written record. (9) Woe, that Day, to those that deny- (10) Who give the lie to the day of judgment. (11) None denies it but the sinful transgressors. (12) When our signs are recited to him, he says, 'Fairy-tales of the ancients!' (13) No. In fact what they have been doing has rusted their hearts. (14) No! Indeed, from their Lord, that Day, they will be partitioned. (15) then they shall roast in Hell. (16) and they will be told, "This is what you were wont to belie." (17) NAY, VERILY - the record of the truly virtuous is [set down] in a mode most lofty! (18) But how will you comprehend what 'Illiyun is? (19) A written record, (20) Which is witnessed by those brought near [to Allah]. (21) The righteous shall indeed be blissful, (22) On couches, gazing, (23) and in their faces you shall know the radiance of bliss. (24) They will be given a drink of pure wine whereon the seal [of God] will have been set, (25) With a sealing of musk, which those who aspire for the best should desire, -- (26) And it is mixed with Tasneem. (27) A spring whereof drink those nearest to Allah. (28) Verily! (During the worldly life) 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 went back to their people turned to make fun of them; (31) And when they saw them, they said: Most surely these are in error; (32) Whereas they have not at all been sent as guardians over them. (33) So this day it is the believers who laugh at the disbelievers. (34) On (high) thrones, looking (at all things). (35) Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did? (36)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
