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
Ruin is for the defrauders. (Those who measure less.) (1) Who, when they take the measure (of their dues) from men take it fully, (2) And when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due. (3) Think they not that they will be resurrected (for reckoning), (4) unto a mighty day (5) A Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) Nay! Truly, the Record (writing of the deeds) of the Fujjar (disbelievers, sinners, evil-doers and wicked) is (preserved) in Sijjin. (7) How will you comprehend what Sijjin is? (8) It is a written book. (9) Woe on that Day to those who belied it, (10) Who call the Day of judgement a lie! (11) Which none denieth save each criminal transgressor, (12) who, when Our verses are recited to him, says: “Mere tales of olden times!” (13) By no means! Aye! encrusted upon their hearts is that which they have been earning. (14) No indeed! On that Day they will be screened off from seeing their Lord, (15) Then verily they will be roasted into the Scorch. (16) Then it will be said [to them], "This is what you used to deny." (17) No indeed! Verily, the deeds of the virtuous shall be in the record of the exalted ones. (18) And what do you know what the Record of the exalted ones is? (19) It is a written book, (20) which those angels closest to God will bear witness to. (21) Indeed, the righteous will be in pleasure (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 pure wine to drink, which is kept preserved, sealed. (25) The seal thereof will be Musk: And for this let those aspire, who have aspirations: (26) And its mixture is of Tasneem, (27) a source [of bliss] whereof those who are drawn close unto God shall drink. (28) Behold, the wicked were wont 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 upon seeing the Muslims, they used to say, “Indeed they have gone astray.” (32) But they were not Sent to be guardians over them! (33) But on this Day the Believers will laugh at the Unbelievers: (34) On high thrones, watching. (35) "Are these deniers of the truth being [thus] requited for [aught but] what they were wont to do?" (36)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
