The Cheaters (Al-Mutaffifeen)
36 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Spider (Al-Ankaboot) before The Heifer (Al-Baqarah)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Woe unto the scrimpers: (1) those who, when they take from others by measure, take their full share; (2) But if they measure unto them or weight for them, they cause them loss. (3) Do those not think that they shall be raised up (4) On a Great Day, (5) The day when (all) mankind stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) No indeed; the Book of the libertines is in Sijjin; (7) How will you comprehend what Sijjin is? (8) It is a Book inscribed. (9) Woe on that day to the rejecters, (10) Who give the lie to the day of judgment. (11) And none deny it except every sinful transgressor. (12) When Our Signs are rehearsed to him, he says, "Tales of the ancients!" (13) Nay! But on their hearts is the Ran (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to earn. (14) No indeed, on that Day they shall be veiled from their Lord. (15) Then they will indeed burn in Hell. (16) and who will be told, "This is what you had called a lie". (17) No indeed! Verily, the deeds of the virtuous shall be in the record of the exalted ones. (18) What could let you know what the 'Illiyoon is! (19) (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed, (20) The ones nearest to God will bring it to public. (21) The virtuous will live in bliss, (22) On couches, gazing, (23) Thou wilt recognize in their faces the brightness of delight. (24) They will be given a drink of pure wine, sealed, (25) whose seal is musk -- so after that let the strivers strive -- (26) And admixture thereof will be Water of Tasnim: (27) A fountain from which only they who are honoured drink. (28) Lo! the guilty used to laugh at those who believed, (29) when they passed by them they winked, (30) And when they returned to their own folk, they returned jesting; (31) And when they saw them they said: Lo! these have gone astray. (32) But they had not been sent as keepers over them! (33) But this Day (the Day of Resurrection) those who believe will laugh at the disbelievers (34) On adorned couches, observing. (35) Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did? (36)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
