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 to the diminishers, (1) those who, when they are to receive their due from [other] people, demand that it be given in full (2) Whilst when they measure or weigh for them, give less. (3) Do those not think that they shall be raised up (4) Unto an Awful Day, (5) The day when (all) mankind stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) Indeed, the record of the disbelievers is in the lowest place, the Sijjeen. (7) And what do you know, how (wretched) the Sijjeen is! (8) It is a Book inscribed. (9) Woe, that Day, to those who deny [(Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Day of Resurrection, and Al-Qadar (Divine Preordainments)]. (10) Those who belie the Day of Requital. (11) and none cries lies to it but every guilty aggressor. (12) When Our communications are recited to him, he says: Stories of those of yore. (13) Nay, but their hearts are corroded by all [the evil] that they were wont to do! (14) Yes indeed they will be deprived of seeing their Lord on that day. (15) then they shall enter the Fire of Hell, (16) It will then be said, “This is what you used to deny.” (17) No indeed; the book of the pious is in Illiyun; (18) And what could make thee conceive what that mode most lofty will be? (19) A record of good deeds written. (20) Those who are drawn near (to Allah) shall witness it. (21) Verily, Al-Abrar (the pious who fear Allah and avoid evil) will be in delight (Paradise). (22) On thrones, they shall gaze; (23) and in their faces you shall know the radiance of bliss. (24) They will be given pure wine to drink, which is kept preserved, sealed. (25) which have the fragrance of musk. This is the kind of place for which one should really aspire. (26) It (that wine) will be mixed with Tasnim. (27) A spring, from (the waters) whereof drink those Nearest to Allah. (28) The sinners laughed at the believers (29) and whenever they pass by them, they wink at one another [derisively]; (30) And when they returned to their people, they would return jesting. (31) And when they saw them, they would say, "Indeed, those are truly lost." (32) Yet they were not sent to be their guardians. (33) On the Day of Judgment, the believers will laugh at the disbelievers (34) Regarding them from their cushioned seats. (35) Have the disbelievers [not] been rewarded [this Day] for what they used to do? (36)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
