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 Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Woe to the stinters; (1) Those who, when they take by measure from mankind, exact the full, (2) but when they measure or weigh for others, they reduce! (3) Do they not think that they will be resurrected (4) On a grievous day, (5) A Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) Nay! Surely the record of the wicked is (preserved) in Sijjin. (7) What could let you know what the Sijjeen is! (8) it is a written record. (9) Woe on that day to the rejecters, (10) Those who deny the Day of Justice. (11) and none cries lies to it but every guilty aggressor. (12) When Our communications are recited to him, he says: Stories of those of yore. (13) Nay! rather, what they used to do has become like rust upon their hearts. (14) Yes indeed they will be deprived of seeing their Lord on that day. (15) Then lo! they verily will burn in hell, (16) Then it will be said: 'this is that which ye were wont to belie.' (17) No indeed! Verily, the deeds of the virtuous shall be in the record of the exalted ones. (18) And what will make you know what the highest Iliyin is? (19) A Register inscribed. (20) which the angels placed near Allah to safeguard. (21) Surely the pious shall be in bliss, (22) upon couches gazing; (23) upon their faces thou wilt see the brightness of bliss. (24) They are made to quaff of a pure drink that is sealed (to others). (25) The last thereof (that wine) will be the smell of musk, and for this let (all) those strive who want to strive (i.e. hasten earnestly to the obedience of Allah). (26) It (that wine) will be mixed with Tasnim. (27) A spring whence those brought near (to Allah) drink. (28) Lo! the guilty used to laugh at those who believed, (29) And when the believers used to pass by, they used to gesture at each other with their eyes. (30) And when they returned to their own folk, they returned jesting; (31) And when they saw them, they said: "Verily! These have indeed gone astray!" (32) though they were not sent to be their keepers -- (33) So today the believers are laughing at the unbelievers, (34) On high couches, gazing. (35) Have the disbelievers [not] been rewarded [this Day] for what they used to do? (36)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
