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 Most Merciful
Woe to the defrauders, (1) Those who, when they take by measure from mankind, exact the full, (2) But if they measure unto them or weight for them, they cause them loss. (3) Do they not realize that they will be resurrected (4) [and called to account] on an awesome Day (5) the Day when all men shall stand before the Sustainer of all the worlds? (6) Indeed! The record of the wicked is in the Sijjin -- (7) What could let you know what the Sijjeen is! (8) it is a written record. (9) Woe on that Day unto the beliers (10) who cry lies to the Day of Doom; (11) No one denies it except for the evil aggressor. (12) When Our revelations are recited before him, he says: "These are fables of long ago." (13) Nay! But on their hearts is the Ran (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to earn. (14) Therefore they will be screened off from their Lord that day, (15) and then, behold, they shall enter the blazing fire (16) Then shall it be said: This is what you gave the lie to. (17) By no means! Verily the record of the virtuous shall be in 'Illiyun. (18) and what will make you understand what the 'Illiyyin is? -- (19) A record of good deeds written. (20) Which is witnessed by the close ones. (21) The virtuous will live in bliss, (22) On thrones, they shall gaze; (23) Thou wilt recognize in their faces the brightness of delight. (24) They will be given to drink [pure] wine [which was] sealed. (25) With a sealing of musk, which those who aspire for the best should desire, -- (26) for it is composed of all that is most exalting (27) a fountain at which do drink those brought nigh. (28) The sinners had been laughing at the believers. (29) and winked at one another as they passed them by. (30) and when they returned to their own people, they would speak of them jestingly; (31) And when they saw them, they said: verily these are the strayed ones. (32) But they had not been sent as guardians over them. (33) But on this Day the Believers will laugh at the Unbelievers: (34) On (high) thrones, looking (at all things). (35) Have those who deny the truth [not] been paid back for their deeds? (36)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
