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 defrauders: (1) Who insist on being given full when they take from others, (2) But when they measure out to others or weigh out for them, they are deficient. (3) Do those not think that they shall be raised up (4) On a Mighty Day, (5) A Day whereon mankind shall stand before the Lord of the worlds? (6) Nay, but the record of the vile is in Sijjin - (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 who deny the Day of Justice. (11) None belies it except every guilty sinner. (12) [and so,] whenever Our messages are conveyed to them, they but say: "Fables of ancient times!" (13) Nay! But on their hearts is the Ran (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to earn. (14) No indeed; but upon that day they shall be veiled from their Lord, (15) Then lo! they verily will burn in hell, (16) Then shall it be said: This is what you gave the lie to. (17) But, the record of the righteous is [preserved] in the 'Illiyyin -- (18) and what will make you understand what the 'Illiyyin is? -- (19) It is a written book, (20) which the angels placed near Allah to safeguard. (21) The virtuous will live in bliss, (22) resting on couches, looking around. (23) Thou wilt recognize in their faces the brightness of delight. (24) They will be given pure wine to drink, which is kept preserved, sealed. (25) Whose seal is musk - for this let (all) those strive who strive for bliss - (26) Blended with the water of Tasnim, (heights ultimate of evolution), (27) A fountain from which only they who are honoured drink. (28) Behold, the wicked were wont to laugh at the believers: (29) and whenever they pass by them, they wink at one another [derisively]; (30) and whenever they return to people of their own kind, they return full of jests; (31) and when they saw them, they said [scornfully], "These men have surely gone astray," (32) Whereas they have not at all been sent as guardians over them. (33) So, the believers will laugh at the infidels on that day, (34) upon couches gazing. (35) Have the unbelievers been rewarded for what they did? (36)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
