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 Merciful, the Compassionate
Woe to the stinters who, (1) Who, when they take a measure from people, take in full. (2) but, when they measure for them or weigh for them, do skimp. (3) Think they not that they will be resurrected (for reckoning), (4) For a tremendous Day - (5) The Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) Nay, but the record of the vile is in Sijjin - (7) and what shall teach thee what is Sijjin? (8) A Register inscribed. (9) Woe unto the repudiators on that day! (10) Who call the Day of judgement a lie! (11) Yet none gives the lie to it except the transgressor immersed in sin; (12) When our signs are recited to him, he says, 'Fairy-tales of the ancients!' (13) They will never have faith. In fact, their hearts are stained from their deeds. (14) No indeed, on that Day they shall be veiled from their Lord. (15) Further, they will enter the Fire of Hell. (16) They will then be told: "This is what you had denied." (17) Surely the ledger of the pious will be in 'Illiyun (heights above the heights). (18) And what will make you know what the highest Iliyin is? (19) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed (20) which the angels placed near Allah to safeguard. (21) Surely the pious shall be in bliss, (22) On Thrones (of Dignity) will they command a sight (of all things): (23) You will recognise in their faces the brightness of delight. (24) They will be served the choicest wine, sealed (25) pouring forth with a fragrance of musk. To that [wine of paradise,] then, let all such aspire as [are willing to] aspire to things of high account: (26) And the admixture of it is a water of Tasnim, (27) A spring whence those brought near (to Allah) drink. (28) BEHOLD, those who have abandoned themselves to sin are wont to laugh at such as have attained to faith (29) And when they passed by them, they would exchange derisive glances. (30) and when they returned to their people they returned blithely, (31) And whenever they saw them, they would say, "Behold! These are the people truly astray!" (32) Yet they were not sent to be their guardians. (33) So today those who believe shall laugh at the unbelievers; (34) On adorned couches, observing. (35) Have the unbelievers been rewarded what they were doing? (36)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
