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 Merciful, the Compassionate
Woe to those who are fraudulent in (weighing and measuring), (1) Those who when they take the measure from others, take it in full! (2) Whereas when they give others after measuring or weighing, they give them less! (3) Do they not think that they will be resurrected (4) (To be raised) for a Great Day? (5) a Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) NAY, VERILY, the record of the wicked is indeed [set down] in a mode inescapable! (7) and what shall teach thee what is Sijjin? (8) The record is a sealed text. (9) Woe on that Day to those who belied it, (10) Those who belie the Day of Requital. (11) And none belieth it save each trespasser, sinner. (12) who, when Our verses are recited to him, says: “Mere tales of olden times!” (13) Nay! rather, what they used to do has become like rust upon their hearts. (14) Nay, but surely on that day they will be covered from (the mercy of) their Lord. (15) Then indeed they have to enter hell. (16) Then it will be said [to them], "This is what you used to deny." (17) No indeed! Verily, the deeds of the virtuous shall be in the record of the exalted ones. (18) And what will make you know what the highest Iliyin is? (19) It is a Book inscribed, (20) Attested by those who are brought near (unto their Lord). (21) Most surely the righteous shall be in bliss, (22) On thrones, watching. (23) On their faces you will see the glow of beatitude. (24) They will be served a drink of the finest sealed wine, (25) whose seal is musk so let all aspirants aspire after that (26) a wine whose mixture is Tasnim, (27) The spring from which drink the ones close to Allah. (28) Surely they who are guilty used to laugh at those who believe. (29) And winked at one another as they passed by them; (30) When they returned to their people they returned jesting; (31) And upon seeing the Muslims, they used to say, “Indeed they have gone astray.” (32) though they were not sent to be their keepers -- (33) On the Day of Judgment, the believers will laugh at the disbelievers (34) as they sit on couches, gazing around. (35) Have the unbelievers been duly rewarded for their deeds? (36)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
