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 THOSE who give short measure, (1) who demand of other people full measure for themselves, (2) And who, when they measure unto them or weigh for them, diminish. (3) Do such people not realize that they will be raised up, (4) unto a mighty day (5) when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) Nay! Truly, the Record (writing of the deeds) of the Fujjar (disbelievers, sinners, evil-doers and wicked) is (preserved) in Sijjin. (7) What could let you know what the Sijjeen is! (8) A Register inscribed. (9) Woe, that Day, to those that deny- (10) Who call the Day of judgement a lie! (11) And none gives the lie to it but every exceeder of limits, sinful one (12) When you recite Our verses to him, he says, “Stories of earlier men!” (13) They will never have faith. In fact, their hearts are stained from their deeds. (14) No indeed! On that Day they will be screened off from seeing their Lord, (15) and then, behold, they shall enter the blazing fire (16) Then it shall be said to them, 'This is that you cried lies to.' (17) NAY, VERILY - the record of the truly virtuous is [set down] in a mode most lofty! (18) And what could make thee conceive what that mode most lofty will be? (19) a written record, (20) The ones nearest to God will bring it to public. (21) The righteous shall indeed be blissful, (22) On thrones, looking (at all things). (23) Thou wilt know in their faces the radiance of delight. (24) They are made to quaff of a pure drink that is sealed (to others). (25) its seal will be of musk -- for this let the aspirants aspire -- (26) and its mixture is Tasneem, (27) A spring, from (the waters) whereof drink those Nearest to Allah. (28) Behold, the wicked were wont to laugh at the believers: (29) when they passed by them they winked, (30) And when they returned to their own followers they returned exulting. (31) On seeing the believers, they would say, "These people have gone astray". (32) No one has appointed them to watch over the believers. (33) But today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers; (34) On Thrones (of Dignity) they will command (a sight) (of all things). (35) Will not the disbelievers then be duly recompensed for their laughing at the believers? (36)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
