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 Compassionate, the Merciful
Woe to the diminishers, (1) Those who when they take the measure from others, take it in full! (2) but when they give by measurement or weight to others, they give them less. (3) Do they not realize that they will be resurrected (4) On a Great Day, (5) when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) Nay! Truly, the Record (writing of the deeds) of the Fujjar (disbelievers, sinners, evil-doers and wicked) is (preserved) in Sijjin. (7) And what will make thee know whatsoever the record in Sijjin is? (8) it is a written record. (9) Woe, on that Day, to those who reject, (10) Those who belie the Day of Requital. (11) and none cries lies to it but every guilty aggressor. (12) When Our revelations are recited before him, he says: "These are fables of long ago." (13) They will never have faith. In fact, their hearts are stained from their deeds. (14) Nay! most surely they shall on that day be debarred from their Lord. (15) Further, they will enter the Fire of Hell. (16) Then, it will be said to them: "This is what you used to deny!" (17) However, the records of the deeds of the virtuous ones will certainly be in Illiyin. (18) Ah, what will convey unto thee what 'Illiyin is! - (19) A book inscribed, (20) To which bear witness those nearest (to Allah, i.e. the angels). (21) Surely the pious shall be in bliss, (22) On thrones, they shall gaze; (23) upon their faces thou wilt see the brightness of bliss. (24) They are given to drink of a pure wine, sealed, (25) Its seal is upon musk; and for this should those who crave be eager. (26) And it is mixed with Tasneem. (27) A fountain from which only they who are honoured drink. (28) Behold, the wicked were wont to laugh at the believers: (29) when they passed by them they winked, (30) and whenever they return to people of their own kind, they return full of jests; (31) and when they saw them, they said [scornfully], "These men have surely gone astray," (32) Yet they were not sent as watchers over them. (33) On the Day of Judgment, the believers will laugh at the disbelievers (34) On thrones, they will look. (35) The infidels have indeed been rewarded for that which they had been doing. (36)
God Almighty has spoken the truth.
