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 Most Merciful
Woe to the diminishers, (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 realise that they will be raised to life (4) For a tremendous Day - (5) The Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists)? (6) Indeed, the record of the disbelievers is in the lowest place, the Sijjeen. (7) And what will make you know what the Sijjin is? (8) A Register inscribed. (9) Woe that day unto those who cry it lies, (10) Those that deny the Day of Judgment. (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) Nay, but that which they have earned is rust upon their hearts. (14) Nay! Surely, they (evil-doers) will be veiled from seeing their Lord that Day. (15) Then most surely they shall enter the burning fire. (16) It will then be said, “This is what you used to deny.” (17) No indeed; the book of the pious is in Illiyun; (18) and what shall teach thee what is Illiyun? (19) The record is a sealed text. (20) Those who are drawn near (to Allah) shall witness it. (21) The virtuous will surely be in bliss, (22) On thrones, they shall gaze; (23) upon their faces thou wilt see the brightness of bliss. (24) They will be given to drink pure sealed wine. (25) whose seal is musk -- so after that let the strivers strive -- (26) for it is composed of all that is most exalting (27) a fountain at which do drink those brought nigh. (28) The sinners laughed at the believers (29) And when they passed by them, they would exchange derisive glances. (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 as guardians over them. (33) But on this Day the Believers will laugh at the Unbelievers: (34) On Thrones (of Dignity) they will command (a sight) (of all things). (35) Have those who deny the truth [not] been paid back for their deeds? (36)
God the Almighty always says the truth.
