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 Compassionate, the Merciful
Ruin is for the defrauders. (Those who measure less.) (1) those who, when they are to receive their due from [other] people, demand that it be given in full (2) But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due. (3) Do they not realise that they will be raised to life (4) For a tremendous Day - (5) The day when everyone will stand before the Lord Of The Creation. (6) NAY, VERILY, the record of the wicked is indeed [set down] in a mode inescapable! (7) And what do you know, how (wretched) the Sijjeen is! (8) (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed. (9) Ruin is for the deniers on that day! (10) and those who have rejected the Day of Judgment. (11) for, none gives the lie to it but such as are wont to transgress against all that is [and are] immersed in sin: (12) who, when Our verses are recited to him, says: “Mere tales of olden times!” (13) No indeed! Their own deeds have cast a veil over their hearts. (14) Nay, but surely on that day they will be covered from (the mercy of) their Lord. (15) Then indeed, they will [enter and] burn in Hellfire. (16) Further, it will be said to them: "This is the (reality) which ye rejected as false! (17) No indeed; the book of the pious is in Illiyun; (18) And what will explain to thee what 'Illiyun is? (19) It is a written book, (20) To which bear witness those Nearest (to Allah). (21) Surely the pious shall be in bliss, (22) On adorned couches, observing. (23) You will recognise in their faces the brightness of delight. (24) They will be served the choicest wine, sealed (25) The seal thereof will be Musk: And for this let those aspire, who have aspirations: (26) And mixed with water of Tasnim, (27) a fountain at which do drink those brought nigh. (28) Behold, the wicked were wont 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: Lo! these have gone astray. (32) But they had not been sent as keepers over them! (33) So today those who believe shall laugh at the unbelievers; (34) On high thrones, watching. (35) The infidels have indeed been rewarded for that which they had been doing. (36)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
