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 Beneficent, the 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) 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) On a grievous day, (5) a day when mankind shall stand before the Lord of all Being? (6) NAY, VERILY, the record of the wicked is indeed [set down] in a mode inescapable! (7) and what shall teach thee what is Sijjin? (8) It is a (repository of) distinctly written record. (9) Woe on that Day unto the beliers (10) those that give the lie to the Day of Recompense. (11) and none cries lies to it but every guilty aggressor. (12) When you recite Our verses to him, he says, “Stories of earlier men!” (13) They will never have faith. In fact, their hearts are stained from their deeds. (14) Indeed! On that Day a barrier will be set between them and their Lord, (15) Then lo! they verily will burn in hell, (16) and they will be told, "This is what you were wont to belie." (17) Nay, but the record of the righteous is in 'Illiyin - (18) Ah, what will convey unto thee what 'Illiyin is! - (19) (It is) a marked Book, (20) To which bear witness those brought nigh. (21) Verily the virtuous shall be in Bliss; (22) On couches, gazing, (23) Thou wilt know in their faces the radiance of delight. (24) They will be given to drink pure sealed wine. (25) which have the fragrance of musk. This is the kind of place for which one should really aspire. (26) for it is composed of all that is most exalting (27) a source [of bliss] whereof those who are drawn close unto God shall drink. (28) Indeed the guilty used to laugh at the believers. (29) And whenever they passed by them, used to wink one to another (in mockery); (30) And when they went back to their people turned to make fun of them; (31) And when they saw them, they said: "They have indeed gone astray." (32) But they (disbelievers, sinners) had not been sent as watchers over them (the believers). (33) This day it is those who believe who have the laugh of disbelievers, (34) On high couches, gazing. (35) Will not the disbelievers then be duly recompensed for their laughing at the believers? (36)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
