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 Most Merciful
Woe to the defrauders, (1) those who demand a full measure from others (2) but when they measure or weigh, give less. (3) Do they not think that they will be resurrected (4) on a fateful Day. (5) a day when mankind shall stand before the Lord of all Being? (6) No! Indeed, the record of the wicked is in sijjeen. (7) And what will make thee know whatsoever the record in Sijjin is? (8) A record [indelibly] inscribed! (9) Woe on that Day to those who belied it, (10) Who deny the Day of Recompense. (11) Yet none gives the lie to it except the transgressor immersed in sin; (12) who, when Our verses are recited to him, says: “Mere tales of olden times!” (13) By no means! but on their hearts is the stain of the (ill) which they do! (14) No indeed, on that Day they shall be veiled from their Lord. (15) Then most surely they shall enter the burning fire. (16) Then it shall be said to them, 'This is that you cried lies to.' (17) By no means! Verily the record of the virtuous shall be in 'Illiyun. (18) Would that you knew what Illiyin is! (19) It is a written book, (20) To which bear witness those nearest (to Allah, i.e. the angels). (21) Most surely the righteous shall be in bliss, (22) reclining on couches, reviewing (the bounties given to them). (23) You will recognize in their faces the brightness of bliss. (24) They shall be given to drink of a wine that is sealed, (25) The seal thereof will be of musk. And to this end let the aspirers aspire (26) It (that wine) will be mixed with Tasnim. (27) A spring from which those near [to Allah] drink. (28) BEHOLD, those who have abandoned themselves to sin are wont to laugh at such as have attained to faith (29) when them passed them by winking at one another, (30) When they returned to their people they returned jesting; (31) And when they saw them, they said: "Verily! These have indeed gone astray!" (32) No one has appointed them to watch over the believers. (33) But on the Day [of Judgment,] they who had attained to faith will [be able to] laugh at the [erstwhile] deniers of the truth: (34) while reclining on couches and reviewing (the bounties given to them). (35) Have the unbelievers been rewarded for what they did? (36)
Allah the Almighty always says the truth.
