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 Compassionate
WOE UNTO THOSE who give short measure: (1) those who, when they are to receive their due from [other] people, demand that it be given in full (2) but when they have to measure or weigh whatever they owe to others, give less than what is due! (3) Do they not know that they are bound to be raised from the dead (4) Unto an Awful Day, (5) The day when (all) mankind stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) Nay! most surely the record of the wicked is in the Sijjin. (7) And what will explain to thee what Sijjin is? (8) The record is a sealed text. (9) Woe unto the repudiators on that day! (10) who cry lies to the Day of Doom; (11) And none belieth it save each trespasser, sinner. (12) When Our revelations are conveyed to him, he says, "Fables of the ancients!" (13) No indeed! Their own deeds have cast a veil over their hearts. (14) No indeed; but upon that day they shall be veiled from their Lord, (15) Then lo! they verily will burn in hell, (16) It will then be said, “This is what you used to deny.” (17) But, the Book of the righteous is in the 'Illiyoon. (18) And what do you know what the Record of the exalted ones is? (19) (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed, (20) witnessed by those who are near (to Allah). (21) Verily the pious will be in heaven, (22) upon couches gazing; (23) Thou wilt recognise in their faces the beaming brightness of Bliss. (24) They will be given to drink of pure wine, sealed. (25) which have the fragrance of musk. This is the kind of place for which one should really aspire. (26) And its mixture is of Tasneem, (27) A fountain from which only they who are honoured drink. (28) Indeed, those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who believed. (29) And whenever they passed by them, used to wink at each other (in mockery); (30) And when they returned to their own folk, they returned jesting; (31) And when they saw them, they said: verily these are the strayed ones. (32) Yet they were not sent to be their guardians. (33) So today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers, (34) On adorned couches, observing. (35) Have the unbelievers been duly rewarded for their deeds? (36)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
