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 the diminishers, (1) who demand of other people full measure for themselves, (2) But if they measure unto them or weight for them, they cause them loss. (3) Do they not think that they will be resurrected (4) [and called to account] on an awesome Day (5) A Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the Worlds? (6) Nay! Truly, the Record (writing of the deeds) of the Fujjar (disbelievers, sinners, evil-doers and wicked) is (preserved) in Sijjin. (7) And what do you know, how (wretched) the Sijjeen is! (8) The record is a sealed text. (9) Woe on that Day unto those who give the lie to the truth (10) Those who deny the Day of Recompense. (11) for, none gives the lie to it but such as are wont to transgress against all that is [and are] immersed in sin: (12) When Our communications are recited to him, he says: Stories of those of yore. (13) No. In fact what they have been doing has rusted their hearts. (14) By no means! Verily on that Day from their Lord they will be shut out. (15) Then lo! they verily will burn in hell, (16) and it will be said to them: 'This is that which you belied' (17) Surely the ledger of the pious will be in 'Illiyun (heights above the heights). (18) But how will you comprehend what 'Illiyun is? (19) The record is a sealed text. (20) Which is witnessed by the close ones. (21) Verily, Al-Abrar (the pious who fear Allah and avoid evil) will be in delight (Paradise). (22) On thrones, watching. (23) Thou wilt know in their faces the radiance of delight. (24) They will be given to drink pure sealed wine. (25) The seal thereof will be of musk. And to this end let the aspirers aspire (26) And admixture thereof will be Water of Tasnim: (27) a spring, the nearest ones to God will drink from it. (28) Indeed the guilty used to laugh at the believers. (29) and whenever they pass by them, they wink at one another [derisively]; (30) And when they returned to their own folk, they returned jesting; (31) and when they saw them, they said [scornfully], "These men have surely gone astray," (32) No one has appointed them to watch over the believers. (33) On the Day of Judgment, the believers will laugh at the disbelievers (34) On Thrones (of Dignity) they will command (a sight) (of all things). (35) Will not the disbelievers then be duly recompensed for their laughing at the believers? (36)
True are the words of God the Almighty.
