The Cheaters (Al-Mutaffifeen)
36 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Spider (Al-Ankaboot) before The Heifer (Al-Baqarah)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Woe to those who give short measure, (1) those who, when they take from others by measure, take their full share; (2) But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due. (3) Do they not realize that they will be resurrected (4) on a Great Day, (5) when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) Nay! Surely the record of the wicked is (preserved) in Sijjin. (7) What could let you know what the Sijjeen is! (8) A record of misdeeds written. (9) Woe on that day to the rejecters, (10) Those who deny the Day of Recompense. (11) None belies it except every guilty sinner. (12) When Our Verses (of the Quran) are recited to him he says: "Tales of the ancients!" (13) No. In fact what they have been doing has rusted their hearts. (14) Nay! most surely they shall on that day be debarred from their Lord. (15) Further, they will enter the Fire of Hell. (16) Then shall it be said: This is what you gave the lie to. (17) Surely the ledger of the pious will be in 'Illiyun (heights above the heights). (18) And what can make you know what is 'illiyyun? (19) A written record, (20) which the angels placed near Allah to safeguard. (21) Most surely the righteous shall be in bliss, (22) On couches, gazing, (23) You will find in their faces the brightness of bliss. (24) They will be served a drink of the finest sealed wine, (25) whose seal is musk -- so after that let the strivers strive -- (26) And it is mixed with Tasneem. (27) A fountain from which drink they who are drawn near (to Allah). (28) Indeed the guilty used to laugh at the believers. (29) when they passed by them, they would wink at one another; (30) and when they returned to their own people, they would speak of them jestingly; (31) And when they saw them, they said: "They have indeed gone astray." (32) though they were not sent to be their keepers -- (33) But on this Day the Believers will laugh at the Unbelievers: (34) as they (recline) upon their couches and gaze (around them). (35) Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did? (36)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
