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 Compassionate, the Merciful
Woe to those that deal in fraud,- (1) Those who, when they take by measure from mankind, exact the full, (2) But if they measure unto them or weight for them, they cause them loss. (3) Do they not realise that they will be raised to life (4) For a tremendous Day - (5) when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) No! Indeed, the record of the wicked is in sijjeen. (7) How will you comprehend what Sijjin is? (8) A book inscribed. (9) Woe, then, to those that give the lie, (10) who belied the Day of Recompense! (11) No one rejects it except the sinful transgressors (12) [and so,] whenever Our messages are conveyed to them, they but say: "Fables of ancient times!" (13) No indeed; but that they were earning has rusted upon their hearts. (14) No indeed; but upon that day they shall be veiled from their Lord, (15) They will suffer the heat of fire (16) whereafter they will be told: “This is what you used to give the lie to.” (17) But, the record of the righteous is [preserved] in the 'Illiyyin -- (18) and what shall teach thee what is Illiyun? (19) A book inscribed, (20) Those who are drawn near (to Allah) shall witness it. (21) The virtuous will surely be in bliss, (22) [resting on couches, they will look up [to God]: (23) On their faces you will see the glow of beatitude. (24) as they are given to drink of a wine sealed (25) The last of it is musk. So for this let the competitors compete. (26) Blended with the water of Tasnim, (heights ultimate of evolution), (27) A fountain from which only they who are honoured drink. (28) Verily! (During the worldly life) those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who believed. (29) And wink one to another when they passed them; (30) And when they returned to their people, they would return jesting. (31) And when they saw them they said: Lo! these have gone astray. (32) Whereas they were not sent over them as watchers. (33) But this Day (the Day of Resurrection) those who believe will laugh at the disbelievers (34) upon couches gazing. (35) The infidels have indeed been rewarded for that which they had been doing. (36)
Almighty God's Truth.
