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 Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Woe to those who give short measure, (1) who demand of other people full measure for themselves, (2) But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due. (3) Do they not think that they will be resurrected (4) unto a mighty day (5) The Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists)? (6) No indeed! Verily the deeds of the wicked are in the Record locked up in the prison-house! (7) What could let you know what the Sijjeen is! (8) (It is) a marked Book. (9) Woe, on that Day, to those who reject, (10) Those that deny the Day of Judgment. (11) And none deny it except every sinful transgressor. (12) When you recite Our verses to him, he says, “Stories of earlier men!” (13) No. In fact what they have been doing has rusted their hearts. (14) Nay! most surely they shall on that day be debarred from their Lord. (15) Then most surely they shall enter the burning fire. (16) Then it will be said [to them], "This is what you used to deny." (17) Nay, but the record of the righteous is in 'Illiyin - (18) And what could make thee conceive what that mode most lofty will be? (19) (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed, (20) The ones nearest to God will bring it to public. (21) Surely the pious shall be in bliss, (22) upon couches gazing; (23) On their faces you will see the glow of beatitude. (24) They are given to drink of a pure wine, sealed, (25) its seal will be of musk -- for this let the aspirants aspire -- (26) And its mixture is of Tasneem, (27) a spring at which those drawn close to God will drink. (28) Indeed the guilty used to laugh at the believers. (29) when them passed them by winking at one another, (30) and when they returned to their own people, they would speak of them jestingly; (31) And when they saw them, they said: verily these are the strayed ones. (32) But they had not been sent as keepers over them! (33) So, the believers will laugh at the infidels on that day, (34) On high couches, gazing. (35) Are not the disbelievers paid (fully) for what they used to do? (36)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
