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 Most Merciful
Woe to the defrauders, (1) Those who, when they take by measure from mankind, exact the full, (2) but when they measure or weigh, give less. (3) Do such people not realize that they will be raised up, (4) Unto an Awful Day, (5) The day when everyone will stand before the Lord Of The Creation. (6) Nay! most surely the record of the wicked is in the Sijjin. (7) And what will explain to thee what Sijjin is? (8) It is a Book inscribed. (9) Ah the woe that day for those who deny, (10) those who give the lie to the [coming of] Judgment Day: (11) None denies it but the sinful transgressors. (12) And when Our revelations are rehearsed unto him, he saith: fables of the ancients! (13) Nay, but their hearts are corroded by all [the evil] that they were wont to do! (14) No indeed; but upon that day they shall be veiled from their Lord, (15) then they shall enter the Fire of Hell, (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) What could let you know what the 'Illiyoon is! (19) A record [indelibly] inscribed, (20) Which is witnessed by the close ones. (21) Lo! the righteous verily are in delight, (22) On couches face to face. (23) You will recognise in their faces the brightness of delight. (24) They will be given a drink of pure wine whereon the seal [of God] will have been set, (25) The seal thereof will be Musk: And for this let those aspire, who have aspirations: (26) a wine whose mixture is Tasnim, (27) A spring, from (the waters) whereof drink those Nearest to Allah. (28) The wicked used to laugh at the believers -- (29) and winked at one another as they passed them by. (30) And when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting; (31) And when they saw them, they said: "They have indeed gone astray." (32) Yet they were not sent to be their guardians. (33) So today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers, (34) On high thrones, watching. (35) Have the unbelievers been rewarded for what they did? (36)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
