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 the defrauders: (1) Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, exact full measure, (2) but when they have to measure or weigh whatever they owe to others, give less than what is due! (3) Do such (men) not consider that they will be raised again (4) on a Great Day, (5) the Day when all men shall stand before the Sustainer of all the worlds? (6) No indeed; the Book of the libertines is in Sijjin; (7) And what will make you know what Sijjin is? (8) It is a Book inscribed. (9) Ruin is for the deniers on that day! (10) Who give the lie to the day of judgment. (11) and none cries lies to it but every guilty aggressor. (12) When Our communications are recited to him, he says: Stories of those of yore. (13) Not at all but rather their earnings have heaped rust upon their hearts. (14) Nay! Surely, they (evil-doers) will be veiled from seeing their Lord that Day. (15) Then they will indeed burn in Hell. (16) It will then be said, “This is what you used to deny.” (17) No indeed; the book of the pious is in Illiyun; (18) and what will make you understand what the 'Illiyyin is? -- (19) (It is) a marked Book, (20) Attested by those who are brought near (unto their Lord). (21) Verily the pious will be in heaven, (22) seated on couches and gazing around in wonder. (23) You will recognise in their faces the brightness of delight. (24) They will be given to drink of pure wine, sealed. (25) With a sealing of musk, which those who aspire for the best should desire, -- (26) It (that wine) will be mixed with Tasnim. (27) a fountain at which do drink those brought nigh. (28) Those in sin used to laugh at those who believed, (29) when they passed by them, they would wink at one another; (30) And when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting; (31) and when they saw the believers, they said: “Lo! These are the erring ones”; (32) And withal, they have no call to watch over [the beliefs of] others... (33) So this day it is the believers who laugh at the disbelievers. (34) On (high) thrones, looking (at all things). (35) Have the unbelievers been duly rewarded for their deeds? (36)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
