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
Ruin is for the defrauders. (Those who measure less.) (1) those who, when they take from others by measure, take their full share; (2) Whilst when they measure or weigh for them, give less. (3) Do such people not realize that they will be raised up, (4) Unto an Awful Day, (5) the Day when people will stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) Nay, but the record of the vile is in Sijjin - (7) and what shall teach thee what is Sijjin? (8) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed. (9) Woe unto the repudiators on that day! (10) Those who deny the Day of Justice. (11) No one denies it except for the evil aggressor. (12) And when Our revelations are rehearsed unto him, he saith: fables of the ancients! (13) By no means! but on their hearts is the stain of the (ill) which they do! (14) Nay! Surely, they (evil-doers) will be veiled from seeing their Lord that Day. (15) They will suffer the heat of fire (16) whereafter they will be told: “This is what you used to give the lie to.” (17) No indeed; the book of the pious is in Illiyun; (18) What could let you know what the 'Illiyoon is! (19) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed (20) Witnessed by those who are honoured. (21) The virtuous will live in bliss, (22) On couches, gazing, (23) You shall see upon their faces the glow of bliss. (24) They will be given to drink pure sealed wine. (25) The sealing of it is (with) musk; and for that let the aspirers aspire. (26) and whose mixture is Tasnim, (27) a fountain at which those brought near (to their Lord) drink. (28) The sinners had been laughing at the believers. (29) And winked at one another as they passed by them; (30) and when they returned to their own people, they would speak of them jestingly; (31) and when they saw the believers, they said: “Lo! These are the erring ones”; (32) But they were not Sent to be guardians over them! (33) On the Day of Judgment, the believers will laugh at the disbelievers (34) [for, resting in paradise] on couches, they will look on [and say to themselves]: (35) Have those who deny the truth [not] been paid back for their deeds? (36)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
