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 Beneficent, the Merciful
Woe to the stinters; (1) who, when people measure for them, take full measure, (2) Whilst when they measure or weigh for them, give less. (3) What! Do they not expect that they will be raised? (4) For 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, the record of the wicked is in sijjeen. (7) And how would you know what the Record of the prison-house is? (8) A record of misdeeds written. (9) Woe, that Day, to those that deny- (10) Those who deny the Day of Justice. (11) None denies it but the sinful transgressors. (12) Who, when thou readest unto him Our revelations, saith: (Mere) fables of the men of old. (13) No indeed! Their own deeds have cast a veil over their hearts. (14) Nay, verily, from [the grace of] their Sustainer shall they on that Day be debarred; (15) and then, behold, they shall enter the blazing fire (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 Illiyoon are! (19) It is a written book, (20) Which is witnessed by those brought near [to Allah]. (21) Behold, [in the life to come] the truly virtuous will indeed be in bliss: (22) On Thrones (of Dignity) will they command a sight (of all things): (23) You will recognize in their faces the brightness of bliss. (24) They are made to quaff of a pure drink that is sealed (to others). (25) its seal will be of musk -- for this let the aspirants aspire -- (26) It (that wine) will be mixed with Tasnim. (27) A fountain from which only they who are honoured drink. (28) The sinners had been laughing at the believers. (29) And when they passed by them, they would exchange derisive glances. (30) and, on returning to their people, boast about what they had done. (31) And when they saw them, they said: "Verily! These have indeed gone astray!" (32) (they said so although) they had not been appointed watchers over them. (33) So today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers, (34) On adorned couches, observing. (35) Will not the disbelievers then be duly recompensed for their laughing at the believers? (36)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
