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 the stinters who, (1) Who, when they take a measure from people, take in full. (2) but when they give by measurement or weight to others, they give them less. (3) Do such (men) not consider that they will be raised again (4) [and called to account] on an awesome Day (5) a Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) Nay! Truly, the Record (writing of the deeds) of the Fujjar (disbelievers, sinners, evil-doers and wicked) is (preserved) in Sijjin. (7) And what do you know, how (wretched) the Sijjeen is! (8) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed. (9) Woe on that Day unto those who give the lie to the truth (10) and those who have rejected the Day of Judgment. (11) Which none denieth save each criminal transgressor, (12) When our signs are recited to him, he says, 'Fairy-tales of the ancients!' (13) Not at all but rather their earnings have heaped rust upon their hearts. (14) No indeed; but upon that day they shall be veiled from their Lord, (15) then they shall enter the Fire of Hell, (16) and who will be told, "This is what you had called a lie". (17) Nay, verily the record of the Righteous is (preserved) in 'Illiyin. (18) And what do you know what the Record of the exalted ones is? (19) A written record, (20) Which is witnessed by the close ones. (21) The righteous shall indeed be blissful, (22) On thrones, looking (at all things). (23) You will recognize in their faces the radiance of pleasure. (24) They will be given a drink of pure wine whereon the seal [of God] will have been set, (25) whose seal is musk -- so after that let the strivers strive -- (26) With it will be (given) a mixture of Tasnim: (27) A spring whereof drink those nearest to Allah. (28) Surely they who are guilty used to laugh at those who believe. (29) And wink one to another when they passed them; (30) And whilst returning to their homes, they used to return rejoicing. (31) And upon seeing the Muslims, they used to say, “Indeed they have gone astray.” (32) But they had not been sent as guardians over them. (33) So today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers, (34) Reclining on couches, looking on. (35) Have the unbelievers been duly rewarded for their deeds? (36)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
