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 defrauders, (1) when they measure against the people, take full measure (2) but when they measure or weigh, give less. (3) Do they not think they will be raised (to life) again (4) On a Mighty Day, (5) A Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) Indeed, the record of the disbelievers is in the lowest place, the Sijjeen. (7) And what could make thee conceive what that that mode inescapable will be? (8) It is a comprehensively written Book (of records). (9) Woe on that Day to those who belied it, (10) Those who deny the Day of Judgment (11) And none deny it except every sinful transgressor. (12) When our signs are recited to him, he says, 'Fairy-tales of the ancients!' (13) Nay! But on their hearts is the Ran (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to earn. (14) Indeed! On that Day a barrier will be set between them and their Lord, (15) Further, they will enter the Fire of Hell. (16) And it will be said (unto them): This is that which ye used to deny. (17) No indeed! Verily, the deeds of the virtuous shall be in the record of the exalted ones. (18) And what do you know what the Illiyoon are! (19) The record is a sealed text. (20) witnessed by those who are near (to Allah). (21) Lo! the righteous verily are in delight, (22) On couches, gazing, (23) and in their faces you shall know the radiance of bliss. (24) They will be given a drink of pure wine whereon the seal [of God] will have been set, (25) The last thereof (that wine) will be the smell of musk, and for this let (all) those strive who want to strive (i.e. hasten earnestly to the obedience of Allah). (26) And it is mixed with Tasneem. (27) A spring whereof drink those nearest to Allah. (28) Indeed, those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who believed. (29) and whenever they pass by them, they wink at one another [derisively]; (30) And when they returned to their own followers they returned exulting. (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) This day it is those who believe who have the laugh of disbelievers, (34) [for, resting in paradise] on couches, they will look on [and say to themselves]: (35) Have the disbelievers [not] been rewarded [this Day] for what they used to do? (36)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
