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 Dispenser of Grace
Ruin is for the defrauders. (Those who measure less.) (1) Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, exact full measure, (2) And when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due. (3) Do such people not realize that they will be raised up, (4) on a fateful Day. (5) a Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) No indeed, the Book of the immoral is in Sijjeen. (7) What could let you know what the Sijjeen is! (8) A record of misdeeds written. (9) Ruin is for the deniers on that day! (10) Those who deny the Day of Judgment (11) And none deny it except every sinful transgressor. (12) When Our verses are recited to him, he says: 'Fictitious tales of the ancients' (13) No. In fact what they have been doing has rusted their hearts. (14) On the Day of Judgment, they will certainly be barred from the mercy of their Lord. (15) Then verily they will be roasted into the Scorch. (16) Then it will be said [to them], "This is what you used to deny." (17) Indeed the record of the virtuous is in the highest place, the Illiyin. (18) And what will make you know what 'Illiyyun is? (19) A record [indelibly] inscribed, (20) Witnessed by those who are honoured. (21) Lo! the righteous verily are in delight, (22) On couches, gazing, (23) You will recognize in their faces the brightness of bliss. (24) They are made to quaff of a pure drink that is sealed (to others). (25) The last of it is musk. So for this let the competitors compete. (26) and whose mixture is Tasnim, (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) And winked at one another as they passed by them; (30) And when they returned to their people, they would return jesting. (31) And when they saw them, they said: "Verily! These have indeed gone astray!" (32) Yet they were not sent to be their guardians. (33) So today those who believe shall laugh at the unbelievers; (34) as they (recline) upon their couches and gaze (around them). (35) "Are these deniers of the truth being [thus] requited for [aught but] what they were wont to do?" (36)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
