The Cheaters (Al-Mutaffifeen)
36 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Spider (Al-Ankaboot) before The Heifer (Al-Baqarah)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Woe unto the defrauders: (1) who, when people measure for them, take full measure, (2) But when they measure out to others or weigh out for them, they are deficient. (3) Do they not know that they are bound to be raised from the dead (4) on a fateful Day. (5) The Day when mankind will stand before the Lord of the worlds? (6) Indeed the ledger of the wicked will be in (the lowest depths) Sijjin. (7) Ah! what will convey unto thee what Sijjin is! - (8) A Register inscribed. (9) Woe, that Day, to the deniers, (10) Who give the lie to the day of judgment. (11) And none belieth it save each trespasser, sinner. (12) When Our revelations are conveyed to him, he says, "Fables of the ancients!" (13) No. In fact what they have been doing has rusted their hearts. (14) No indeed, on that Day they shall be veiled from their Lord. (15) Then indeed they have to enter hell. (16) Further, it will be said to them: "This is the (reality) which ye rejected as false! (17) Surely the ledger of the pious will be in 'Illiyun (heights above the heights). (18) and what shall teach thee what is Illiyun? (19) A record [indelibly] inscribed, (20) which the angels placed near Allah to safeguard. (21) Verily the pious will be in heaven, (22) On thrones, watching. (23) On their faces you will see the glow of beatitude. (24) They will be given to drink [pure] wine [which was] sealed. (25) pouring forth with a fragrance of musk. To that [wine of paradise,] then, let all such aspire as [are willing to] aspire to things of high account: (26) And admixture thereof will be Water of Tasnim: (27) The spring from which drink the ones close to Allah. (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 people, they would return jesting; (31) And when they saw them, they said: verily these are the strayed ones. (32) Yet they were not sent to be their guardians. (33) This day it is those who believe who have the laugh of disbelievers, (34) as they sit on couches, gazing around. (35) Did not the disbelievers get repaid for what they used to do? (36)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
