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 the stinters; (1) Who, when they take the measure (of their dues) from men take it fully, (2) but when they have to measure or weigh whatever they owe to others, give less than what is due! (3) Do they not think they will be raised (to life) again (4) For a tremendous Day - (5) The day when (all) mankind stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) Nay, but the record of the vile is in Sijjin - (7) And how would you know what the Record of the prison-house is? (8) A record of misdeeds written. (9) Woe on that day to the rejecters, (10) those who deny the Day of Judgement. (11) No one denies it except for the evil aggressor. (12) When Our Verses (of the Quran) are recited to him he says: "Tales of the ancients!" (13) By no means! but on their hearts is the stain of the (ill) which they do! (14) Nay, but surely on that day they will be covered from (the mercy of) their Lord. (15) Then they shall roast in Hell, (16) and who will be told, "This is what you had called a lie". (17) Surely the ledger of the pious will be in 'Illiyun (heights above the heights). (18) But how will you comprehend what 'Illiyun is? (19) A Register inscribed. (20) Those who are drawn near (to Allah) shall witness it. (21) The virtuous will surely be in bliss, (22) reclining on couches, reviewing (the bounties given to them). (23) Thou wilt know in their faces the radiance of delight. (24) as they are given to drink of a wine sealed (25) whose seal is musk -- so after that let the strivers strive -- (26) With it will be (given) a mixture of Tasnim: (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 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 whenever they saw them, they would say, "Behold! These are the people truly astray!" (32) Yet they were not sent to be their guardians. (33) But this Day (the Day of Resurrection) those who believe will laugh at the disbelievers (34) On high thrones, watching. (35) Will not the disbelievers then be duly recompensed for their laughing at the believers? (36)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
