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 UNTO THOSE who give short measure: (1) Those who when they take the measure from mankind demand it full, (2) Whilst when they measure or weigh for them, give less. (3) Do they not know that they are bound to be raised from the dead (4) on a great day (5) The day on which men shall stand before the Lord of the worlds? (6) Indeed the ledger of the wicked will be in (the lowest depths) Sijjin. (7) Ah! what will convey unto thee what Sijjin is! - (8) A record of misdeeds written. (9) Woe, that Day, to the deniers, (10) who cry lies to the Day of Doom; (11) And none can deny it except every transgressor beyond bounds, (in disbelief, oppression and disobedience of Allah, the sinner!) (12) [and so,] whenever Our messages are conveyed to them, they but say: "Fables of ancient times!" (13) Not at all but rather their earnings have heaped rust upon their hearts. (14) Yes indeed they will be deprived of seeing their Lord on that day. (15) then they shall roast in Hell. (16) and who will be told, "This is what you had called a lie". (17) No indeed; the book of the pious is in Illiyun; (18) and what will make you understand what the 'Illiyyin is? -- (19) a written record, (20) witnessed by all who have [ever] been drawn close unto God. (21) Verily the virtuous shall be in Bliss; (22) (reclining) upon couches they will gaze, (23) thou knowest in their faces the radiancy of bliss (24) They will be served a drink of the finest sealed wine, (25) The seal thereof will be Musk: And for this let those aspire, who have aspirations: (26) And mixed with water of Tasnim, (27) a spring at which those drawn close to God will drink. (28) Indeed the guilty used to laugh at the believers. (29) And whenever they passed by them, used to wink one to another (in mockery); (30) and when they went back to their families, they went back jesting, (31) And when they saw them, they said: verily these are the strayed ones. (32) Yet they were not sent as watchers over them. (33) But this Day (the Day of Resurrection) those who believe will laugh at the disbelievers (34) On high couches, gazing. (35) Have the unbelievers been duly rewarded for their deeds? (36)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
