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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Woe unto the defrauders: (1) Who, when they take a measure from people, take in full. (2) but when they measure or weigh for others, they reduce! (3) Do they not think that they will be resurrected (4) For a tremendous Day - (5) A Day whereon mankind shall stand before the Lord of the worlds? (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) It is a comprehensively written Book (of records). (9) Woe, that Day, to the deniers, (10) those who give the lie to the [coming of] Judgment Day: (11) And none will deny it, except every transgressor, rebel. (12) When Our communications are recited to him, he says: Stories of those of yore. (13) By no means! Aye! encrusted upon their hearts is that which they have been earning. (14) Nay! Surely, they (evil-doers) will be veiled from seeing their Lord that Day. (15) then they shall roast in Hell. (16) and they will be told, "This is what you were wont to belie." (17) By no means! Verily the record of the virtuous shall be in 'Illiyun. (18) and what shall teach thee what is Illiyun? (19) It is a written book, (20) To which bear witness those brought nigh. (21) Behold, [in the life to come] the truly virtuous will indeed be in bliss: (22) seated on couches and gazing around in wonder. (23) On their faces you will see the glow of beatitude. (24) They are given to drink of a pure wine, sealed, (25) which have the fragrance of musk. This is the kind of place for which one should really aspire. (26) And mixed with water of Tasnim, (27) The spring from which drink the ones close to Allah. (28) The sinners laughed at the believers (29) and winked at one another as they passed them by. (30) and when they went back to their families, they went back jesting, (31) and when they saw them said: 'These are they who are astray' (32) Yet they were not sent as guardians over them. (33) But on this Day the believers will laugh at the unbelievers (34) Reclining on couches, looking on. (35) Will not the disbelievers then be duly recompensed for their laughing at the believers? (36)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
