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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Woe unto the defrauders: (1) Who, when they take the measure (of their dues) from men take it fully, (2) But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due. (3) Do they not know that they are bound to be raised from the dead (4) (To be raised) for a Great Day? (5) A Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) NAY, VERILY, the record of the wicked is indeed [set down] in a mode inescapable! (7) And what will make you know what the Sijjin is? (8) A written record. (9) Ah the woe that day for those who deny, (10) those that give the lie to the Day of Recompense. (11) Which none denieth save each criminal transgressor, (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) By no means! Verily on that Day from their Lord they will be shut out. (15) and then they shall enter Hell, (16) and it will be said to them: 'This is that which you belied' (17) No indeed! Verily, the deeds of the virtuous shall be in the record of the exalted ones. (18) Ah, what will convey unto thee what 'Illiyin is! - (19) It is a comprehensively written Book (of records). (20) The ones nearest to God will bring it to public. (21) The virtuous will live in bliss, (22) seated on couches and gazing around in wonder. (23) thou knowest in their faces the radiancy of bliss (24) They will be given pure wine out of sealed containers (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) a wine whose mixture is Tasnim, (27) A fountain from which only they who are honoured drink. (28) BEHOLD, those who have abandoned themselves to sin are wont to laugh at such as have attained to faith (29) and whenever they pass by them, they wink at one another [derisively]; (30) and when they returned to their people they returned blithely, (31) and when they saw them said: 'These are they who are astray' (32) though they were not sent to be their keepers -- (33) This day it is those who believe who have the laugh of disbelievers, (34) upon couches gazing. (35) Have the disbelievers [not] been rewarded [this Day] for what they used to do? (36)
Almighty God's Truth.
