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 have to receive by measure from men, demand full measure, (2) But if they measure unto them or weight for them, they cause them loss. (3) Do they not realise that they will be raised to life (4) (To be raised) for a Great Day? (5) The day when (all) mankind stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) Indeed the ledger of the wicked will be in (the lowest depths) Sijjin. (7) How will you comprehend what Sijjin is? (8) It is a comprehensively written Book (of records). (9) Woe, then, to those that give the lie, (10) who belied the Day of Recompense! (11) and none cries lies to it but every guilty aggressor. (12) [and so,] whenever Our messages are conveyed to them, they but say: "Fables of ancient times!" (13) No indeed! Their own deeds have cast a veil over their hearts. (14) Nay! Surely, they (evil-doers) will be veiled from seeing their Lord that Day. (15) Then verily they will be roasted into the Scorch. (16) and who will be told, "This is what you had called a lie". (17) No indeed; the book of the pious is in Illiyun; (18) And what will make thee know whatsoever the record in Illiyun is? (19) a written record, (20) witnessed by those brought nigh. (21) Behold, [in the life to come] the truly virtuous will indeed be in bliss: (22) On adorned couches, observing. (23) thou knowest in their faces the radiancy 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) a wine whose mixture is Tasnim, (27) A fountain whereof will drink those brought nigh. (28) The sinners indeed laughed at believers (29) And when they passed by them, they winked at one another. (30) And when they returned to their own followers they returned exulting. (31) And when they saw them they said: Lo! these have gone astray. (32) But they had not been sent as keepers over them! (33) So this day it is the believers who laugh at the disbelievers. (34) Regarding them from their cushioned seats. (35) Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did? (36)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
