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
WOE TO THOSE who give short measure, (1) who, when people measure for them, take full measure, (2) But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due. (3) Do they not realize that they will be resurrected (4) [and called to account] on an awesome 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 Book of the immoral is in Sijjeen. (7) And what will explain to thee what Sijjin is? (8) (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed. (9) Ah the woe that day for those who deny, (10) Who give the lie to the day of judgment. (11) And none belieth it save each trespasser, sinner. (12) When our signs are recited to him, he says, 'Fairy-tales of the ancients!' (13) They will never have faith. In fact, their hearts are stained from their deeds. (14) Nay, but surely on that day they will be covered from (the mercy of) their Lord. (15) Further, they will enter the Fire of Hell. (16) And it will be said (unto them): This is that which ye used to deny. (17) But, the Book of the righteous is in the 'Illiyoon. (18) Ah, what will convey unto thee what 'Illiyin is! - (19) It is a comprehensively written Book (of records). (20) To which bear witness those Nearest (to Allah). (21) The virtuous will live in bliss, (22) On couches face to face. (23) Thou wilt know in their faces the radiance of delight. (24) as they are given to drink of a wine sealed (25) its seal will be of musk -- for this let the aspirants aspire -- (26) With it will be (given) a mixture of Tasnim: (27) A spring from which those near [to Allah] drink. (28) Behold, the sinners were laughing at the believers, (29) And when they passed by them, they would exchange derisive glances. (30) And when they returned to their own followers they returned exulting. (31) and when they saw them they said, 'Lo, these men are astray!' (32) And they were not sent to be keepers over them. (33) So Today those who believed are laughing at the disbelievers, (34) Regarding them from their cushioned seats. (35) "Are these deniers of the truth being [thus] requited for [aught but] what they were wont to do?" (36)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
