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 Merciful, the Compassionate
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) But when they measure out to others or weigh out for them, they are deficient. (3) Do they not realise that they will be raised to life (4) (To be raised) for a Great Day? (5) A Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) No indeed! Verily the deeds of the wicked are in the Record locked up in the prison-house! (7) And what will make thee know whatsoever the record in Sijjin is? (8) (It is) a marked Book. (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 deny the Day of Recompense. (11) And none can deny it except every transgressor beyond bounds, (in disbelief, oppression and disobedience of Allah, the sinner!) (12) who, when listening to Our revelations, say, "These are only ancient legends". (13) Nay! But on their hearts is the Ran (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to earn. (14) Verily, from (the Light of) their Lord, that Day, will they be veiled. (15) Then they will indeed burn in Hell. (16) Then it will be said: 'this is that which ye were wont to belie.' (17) Nay, but the record of the righteous is in 'Illiyin - (18) And what will make you know what 'Illiyyun is? (19) A book inscribed, (20) Which is witnessed by the close ones. (21) Behold, [in the life to come] the truly virtuous will indeed be in bliss: (22) On couches face to face. (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) The last of it is musk. So for this let the competitors compete. (26) With the wine is a drink from Tasnim, (27) A spring, from (the waters) whereof drink those Nearest to Allah. (28) Behold, the sinners were laughing at the believers, (29) And wink one to another when they passed them; (30) And when they returned to their own followers they returned exulting. (31) And when they saw them, they said: "They have indeed gone astray." (32) And withal, they have no call to watch over [the beliefs of] others... (33) But on this Day the Believers will laugh at the Unbelievers: (34) Regarding them from their cushioned seats. (35) Have the unbelievers been rewarded what they were doing? (36)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
