The Cheaters (Al-Mutaffifeen)
36 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Spider (Al-Ankaboot) before The Heifer (Al-Baqarah)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Woe to the defrauders, (1) Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, demand full measure, (2) Whilst when they measure or weigh for them, give less. (3) Do such people not realize that they will be raised up, (4) [and called to account] on an awesome Day (5) A Day whereon mankind shall stand before the Lord of the worlds? (6) Nay! Surely the record of the wicked is (preserved) in Sijjin. (7) and what could make you understand what the Sijjin is? -- (8) It is a (repository of) distinctly written record. (9) Woe unto the repudiators on that day! (10) and those who have rejected the Day of Judgment. (11) No one rejects it except the sinful transgressors (12) When you recite Our verses to him, he says, “Stories of earlier men!” (13) No indeed! The truth is that their hearts have become rusted on account of their evil deeds. (14) No indeed! On that Day they will be screened off from seeing their Lord, (15) Then indeed, they will [enter and] burn in Hellfire. (16) Then shall it be said: This is what you gave the lie to. (17) Nay! Most surely the record of the righteous shall be in the Iliyin. (18) And what do you know what the Illiyoon are! (19) (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed, (20) To which bear witness those Nearest (to Allah). (21) Verily the virtuous shall be in Delight, (22) On thrones, looking (at all things). (23) thou knowest in their faces the radiancy of bliss (24) They will be given to drink [pure] wine [which was] sealed. (25) its seal is musk, for this let the competitors compete; (26) And its mixture is of Tasneem, (27) a fountain at which do drink those brought nigh. (28) Indeed, those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who believed. (29) And winked at one another as they passed by them; (30) and when they returned to their people they returned blithely, (31) And when they saw them, they said: verily these are the strayed ones. (32) And they were not sent to be keepers over them. (33) So today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers, (34) upon couches gazing. (35) Have those who deny the truth [not] been paid back for their deeds? (36)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
