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 less [than due], (1) those who demand a full measure from others (2) but when they measure or weigh for others, they reduce! (3) Do they not think that they will be resurrected (4) on a great day (5) The day on which men shall stand before the Lord of the worlds? (6) Indeed! The record of the wicked is in the Sijjin -- (7) and what could make you understand what the Sijjin is? -- (8) It is a comprehensively written Book (of records). (9) Ah the woe that day for those who deny, (10) Those that deny the Day of Judgment. (11) No one denies it except for the evil aggressor. (12) When Our verses are recited to him, he says: 'Fictitious tales of the ancients' (13) No indeed; but that they were earning has rusted upon their hearts. (14) Therefore they will be screened off from their Lord that day, (15) then they shall enter the Fire of Hell, (16) Then, it will be said to them: "This is what you used to deny!" (17) No! Indeed, the record of the righteous is in 'illiyyun. (18) And what do you know what the Record of the exalted ones is? (19) It is a Book inscribed, (20) witnessed by those brought nigh. (21) The righteous shall indeed be blissful, (22) Reclining on couches, looking on. (23) You will recognize in their faces the radiance of pleasure. (24) They are given to drink of a pure wine, sealed, (25) With a sealing of musk, which those who aspire for the best should desire, -- (26) With it will be (given) a mixture of Tasnim: (27) A spring whereof drink those nearest to Allah. (28) Behold, the sinners were laughing at the believers, (29) When passing by them, they would wink at one another (30) And when they returned to their own folk, they returned jesting; (31) and when they saw them, they said [scornfully], "These men have surely gone astray," (32) Yet they were not sent as guardians over them. (33) But today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers; (34) On (high) thrones, looking (at all things). (35) Are not the disbelievers paid for what they used to do? (36)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
