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 that deal in fraud,- (1) Those who when they take the measure from others, take it in full! (2) And when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due. (3) Do such (men) not consider that they will be raised again (4) for a great Day, (5) The day when everyone will stand before the Lord Of The Creation. (6) Indeed the ledger of the wicked will be in (the lowest depths) Sijjin. (7) And what will explain to thee what Sijjin is? (8) A record of misdeeds written. (9) Woe on that Day unto the beliers (10) Those who deny the Day of Recompense. (11) None belies it except every guilty sinner. (12) When our signs are recited to him, he says, 'Fairy-tales of the ancients!' (13) No indeed! Their own deeds have cast a veil over their hearts. (14) Therefore they will be screened off from their Lord that day, (15) Then verily they will be roasted into the Scorch. (16) and it will be said to them: 'This is that which you belied' (17) Nay! Verily, the Record (writing of the deeds) of Al-Abrar (the pious who fear Allah and avoid evil), is (preserved) in 'Illiyyun. (18) And what could make thee conceive what that mode most lofty will be? (19) The record is a sealed text. (20) witnessed by all who have [ever] been drawn close unto God. (21) Truly the Righteous will be in Bliss: (22) [resting on couches, they will look up [to God]: (23) Thou wilt know in their faces the radiance of delight. (24) They will be given a drink of pure wine whereon the seal [of God] will have been set, (25) The last of it is musk. So for this let the competitors compete. (26) And its mixture is of Tasneem, (27) a fountain at which do drink those brought nigh. (28) The sinners indeed laughed at believers (29) And, when they passed them, to wink at each other, (30) And when they returned to their people, they would return jesting. (31) and when they saw them they said, 'Lo, these men are astray!' (32) And withal, they have no call to watch over [the beliefs of] others... (33) This day it is those who believe who have the laugh of disbelievers, (34) Regarding them from their cushioned seats. (35) Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did? (36)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
