The Cheaters (Al-Mutaffifeen)
36 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Spider (Al-Ankaboot) before The Heifer (Al-Baqarah)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
Woe unto the defrauders: (1) Those who, when they take by measure from mankind, exact the full, (2) but, when they measure for them or weigh for them, do skimp. (3) Do they not think they will be raised (to life) again (4) on a fateful Day. (5) The day when everyone will stand before the Lord Of The Creation. (6) Nay! Surely the record of the wicked is (preserved) in Sijjin. (7) and what could make you understand what the Sijjin is? -- (8) A Register inscribed. (9) Ah the woe that day for those who deny, (10) Those who deny the Day of Judgment (11) for, none gives the lie to it but such as are wont to transgress against all that is [and are] immersed in sin: (12) When Our revelations are recited before him, he says: "These are fables of long ago." (13) No indeed; but that they were earning has rusted upon their hearts. (14) No indeed, on that Day they shall be veiled from their Lord. (15) Then lo! they verily will burn in hell, (16) And it will be said (unto them): This is that which ye used to deny. (17) NAY, VERILY - the record of the truly virtuous is [set down] in a mode most lofty! (18) and what shall teach thee what is Illiyun? (19) It is a written book, (20) Those who are drawn near (to Allah) shall witness it. (21) Truly the Righteous will be in Bliss: (22) On couches face to face. (23) Thou wilt recognize in their faces the brightness of delight. (24) They are made to quaff of a pure drink that is sealed (to others). (25) The sealing of it is (with) musk; and for that let the aspirers aspire. (26) And its mixture is of Tasneem, (27) a fountain at which the chosen ones shall drink. (28) BEHOLD, those who have abandoned themselves to sin are wont to laugh at such as have attained to faith (29) When passing by them, they would wink at one another (30) And when they went back to their people turned to make fun of them; (31) And when they saw them, they said: Most surely these are in error; (32) Yet they were not sent as watchers over them. (33) But on the Day [of Judgment,] they who had attained to faith will [be able to] laugh at the [erstwhile] deniers of the truth: (34) On thrones, they will look. (35) "Are these deniers of the truth being [thus] requited for [aught but] what they were wont to do?" (36)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
