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 the diminishers, (1) Who insist on being given full when they take from others, (2) but when they measure or weigh, give less. (3) Imagine such men not that they shall be raised up? (4) On a Mighty Day, (5) The Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) Indeed! The record of the wicked is in the Sijjin -- (7) Ah! what will convey unto thee what Sijjin is! - (8) A book inscribed. (9) Woe on that Day unto the beliers (10) who belied the Day of Recompense! (11) None belies it except every guilty sinner. (12) who, when Our verses are recited to him, says: “Mere tales of olden times!” (13) By no means! but on their hearts is the stain of the (ill) which they do! (14) Nay, verily, from [the grace of] their Sustainer shall they on that Day be debarred; (15) and then, behold, they shall enter the blazing fire (16) It will then be said, “This is what you used to deny.” (17) But, the Book of the righteous is in the 'Illiyoon. (18) And what can make you know what is 'illiyyun? (19) A record [indelibly] inscribed, (20) To which bear witness those brought nigh. (21) The virtuous will live in bliss, (22) On thrones, looking (at all things). (23) You will recognize in their faces the radiance of pleasure. (24) They will be given to drink pure sealed wine. (25) Whose seal is musk - for this let (all) those strive who strive for bliss - (26) a wine whose mixture is Tasnim, (27) a spring at which those drawn close to God will drink. (28) The sinners had been laughing at the believers. (29) And whenever they passed by them, used to wink at each other (in mockery); (30) And when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting; (31) And whenever they saw them, they would say, "Behold! These are the people truly astray!" (32) Yet they were not sent to be their guardians. (33) But today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers; (34) On adorned couches, observing. (35) Are not the disbelievers paid for what they used to do? (36)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
