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 to Al-Mutaffifin [those who give less in measure and weight (decrease the rights of others)], (1) Those who, when they take by measure from mankind, exact the full, (2) And who, when they measure unto them or weigh for them, diminish. (3) Do they not realise that they will be raised to life (4) on a fateful Day. (5) The Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) Nay! most surely the record of the wicked is in the Sijjin. (7) And what do you know, how (wretched) the Sijjeen is! (8) It is a written book. (9) Woe that day unto those who cry it lies, (10) Who call the Day of judgement a lie! (11) And none can deny it but the Transgressor beyond bounds the Sinner! (12) [and so,] whenever Our messages are conveyed to them, they but say: "Fables of ancient times!" (13) Nay, but that which they have earned is rust upon their hearts. (14) Indeed! On that Day a barrier will be set between them and their Lord, (15) Then lo! they verily will burn in hell, (16) They will then be told: "This is what you had denied." (17) No! Indeed, the record of the righteous is in 'illiyyun. (18) And what could make thee conceive what that mode most lofty will be? (19) It is a Book inscribed, (20) which those angels closest to God will bear witness to. (21) Verily the virtuous shall be in Bliss; (22) On couches, gazing, (23) On their faces you will see the glow of beatitude. (24) They will be served the choicest wine, sealed (25) Its seal is upon musk; and for this should those who crave be eager. (26) And admixture thereof will be Water of Tasnim: (27) A fountain from which only they who are honoured drink. (28) Lo! the guilty 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 speak of them jestingly; (31) And upon seeing the Muslims, they used to say, “Indeed they have gone astray.” (32) But they had not been sent as keepers over them! (33) But on this Day the believers will laugh at the unbelievers (34) as they sit on couches, gazing around. (35) Will not the disbelievers then be duly recompensed for their laughing at the believers? (36)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
