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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
WOE TO THOSE who give short measure, (1) Those who when they take the measure from mankind demand it full, (2) But when they measure out to others or weigh out for them, they are deficient. (3) Do not these think that they shall be raised again (4) For a mighty day, (5) The Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) By no means! Verily the record of the ungodly is in Sijjin. (7) And what will make thee know whatsoever the record in Sijjin is? (8) A record of misdeeds written. (9) Woe on that day to the rejecters, (10) who belied the Day of Recompense! (11) Which none denieth save each criminal transgressor, (12) Who, when thou readest unto him Our revelations, saith: (Mere) fables of the men of old. (13) No! Rather, the stain has covered their hearts of that which they were earning. (14) No indeed; but upon that day they shall be veiled from their Lord, (15) Then indeed, they will [enter and] burn in Hellfire. (16) and be told: "This is the [very thing] to which you were wont to give the lie!" (17) By no means! Verily the record of the virtuous shall be in 'Illiyun. (18) And what will explain to thee what 'Illiyun is? (19) A book inscribed, (20) witnessed by those brought nigh. (21) Verily the virtuous shall be in Delight, (22) reclining on couches, reviewing (the bounties given to them). (23) You shall see upon their faces the glow of bliss. (24) They are made to quaff of a pure drink that is sealed (to others). (25) The seal thereof will be Musk: And for this let those aspire, who have aspirations: (26) And its mixture is of Tasneem, (27) A fountain from which drink they who are drawn near (to Allah). (28) Verily! (During the worldly life) those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who believed. (29) when them passed them by winking at one another, (30) When they returned to their people they returned jesting; (31) and whenever they see those [who believe,] they say: "Behold, these [people] have indeed gone astray!" (32) But they were not Sent to be guardians over them! (33) So today those who believe shall laugh at the unbelievers; (34) while reclining on couches and reviewing (the bounties given to them). (35) Are not the disbelievers paid (fully) for what they used to do? (36)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
