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 Al-Mutaffifin [those who give less in measure and weight (decrease the rights of others)], (1) Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, exact full measure, (2) but when they give by measurement or weight to others, they give them less. (3) Do such people not realize that they will be raised up, (4) On a Great Day, (5) when mankind will stand before the Lord of the Universe? (6) NAY, VERILY, the record of the wicked is indeed [set down] in a mode inescapable! (7) How will you comprehend what Sijjin is? (8) It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed. (9) Woe on that Day unto those who give the lie to the truth (10) those who give the lie to the [coming of] Judgment Day: (11) No one rejects it except the sinful transgressors (12) When Our communications are recited to him, he says: Stories of those of yore. (13) No indeed! Their own deeds have cast a veil over their hearts. (14) Indeed! On that Day a barrier will be set between them and their Lord, (15) Then indeed they have to enter hell. (16) Then shall it be said: This is what you gave the lie to. (17) Nay, verily the record of the Righteous is (preserved) in 'Illiyin. (18) and what will make you understand what the 'Illiyyin is? -- (19) A Register inscribed. (20) Attested by those who are brought near (unto their Lord). (21) Verily the virtuous shall be in Bliss; (22) On thrones, watching. (23) You will recognize in their faces the radiance of pleasure. (24) They will be given to drink [pure] wine [which was] sealed. (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) and its mixture is Tasneem, (27) a spring, the nearest ones to God will drink from it. (28) Surely they who are guilty used to laugh at those who believe. (29) And when they passed by them, they would exchange derisive glances. (30) and when they returned to their people they returned blithely, (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) So this day it is the believers who laugh at the disbelievers. (34) On high thrones, watching. (35) Will not the disbelievers then be duly recompensed for their laughing at the believers? (36)
Allah Almighty has spoken the truth.
