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 Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
Ruin is for the defrauders. (Those who measure less.) (1) when they measure against the people, take full measure (2) but when they measure or weigh for others, they reduce! (3) Do they not think that they will be resurrected (4) For a mighty day, (5) The day when (all) mankind stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) No indeed; the Book of the libertines is in Sijjin; (7) Would that you knew what Sijin is!? (8) (It is) a marked Book. (9) Ah the woe that day for those who deny, (10) Those that deny the Day of Judgment. (11) No one denies it except for the evil aggressor. (12) When Our Verses (of the Quran) are recited to him he says: "Tales of the ancients!" (13) No indeed! The truth is that their hearts have become rusted on account of their evil deeds. (14) No indeed, on that Day they shall be veiled from their Lord. (15) They will suffer the heat of fire (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) But how will you comprehend what 'Illiyun is? (19) A written record, (20) The ones nearest to God will bring it to public. (21) Surely the pious shall be in bliss, (22) On Thrones (of Dignity) will they command a sight (of all things): (23) You will recognize in their faces the brightness of bliss. (24) as they are given to drink of a wine sealed (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) With the wine is a drink from Tasnim, (27) a fountain at which do drink those brought nigh. (28) Indeed, those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who believed. (29) And, when they passed them, to wink at each other, (30) And when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting; (31) And when they saw them, they said: Most surely these are in error; (32) But they had not been sent as guardians over them. (33) But on this Day the Believers will laugh at the Unbelievers: (34) On high thrones, watching. (35) "Are these deniers of the truth being [thus] requited for [aught but] what they were wont to do?" (36)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
