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
Ruin is for the defrauders. (Those who measure less.) (1) who, when people measure for them, take full measure, (2) but when they measure or weigh, give less. (3) Do they not think that they will be resurrected (4) for a great Day, (5) The day all mankind will stand before the Lord of all the worlds? (6) Nay! Truly, the Record (writing of the deeds) of the Fujjar (disbelievers, sinners, evil-doers and wicked) is (preserved) in Sijjin. (7) And what will make you know what the Sijjin is? (8) A record of misdeeds written. (9) Woe on that Day to those who belied it, (10) Those who deny the Day of Judgment (11) Yet none gives the lie to it except the transgressor immersed in sin; (12) When Our verses are recited to him, he says: 'Fictitious tales of the ancients' (13) They will never have faith. In fact, their hearts are stained from their deeds. (14) By no means! Verily on that Day from their Lord they will be shut out. (15) They will suffer the heat of fire (16) Then shall it be said: This is what you gave the lie to. (17) Nay, but the record of the righteous is in 'Illiyin - (18) And what will make thee know whatsoever the record in Illiyun is? (19) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed (20) which the angels placed near Allah to safeguard. (21) Verily, Al-Abrar (the pious who fear Allah and avoid evil) will be in delight (Paradise). (22) On adorned couches, observing. (23) You shall see upon their faces the glow of bliss. (24) Their thirst will be slaked with Pure Wine sealed: (25) The last thereof (that wine) will be the smell of musk, and for this let (all) those strive who want to strive (i.e. hasten earnestly to the obedience of Allah). (26) and its mixture is Tasneem, (27) a source [of bliss] whereof those who are drawn close unto God shall drink. (28) The wicked used to laugh at the believers -- (29) And when they passed by them, they would exchange derisive glances. (30) and when they went back to their families, they went back jesting, (31) and when they saw them said: 'These are they who are astray' (32) But they (disbelievers, sinners) had not been sent as watchers over them (the believers). (33) So today those who believe shall laugh at the unbelievers; (34) as they (recline) upon their couches and gaze (around them). (35) Have the unbelievers been duly rewarded for their deeds? (36)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
