Al-Mutaffifin - Defrauding, The Cheats, Cheating - Meccan

  1. In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

  2. 83:1 Woe to those that deal in fraud,-

  3. 83:2 Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, exact full measure,

  4. 83:3 But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due.

  5. 83:4 Do they not think that they will be called to account?-

  6. 83:5 On a Mighty Day,

  7. 83:6 A Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the Worlds?

  8. 83:7 Day! Surely the record of the wicked is (preserved) in Sijjin.

  9. 83:8 And what will explain to thee what Sijjin is?

  10. 83:9 (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed.

  11. 83:10 Woe, that Day, to those that deny-

  12. 83:11 Those that deny the Day of Judgment.

  13. 83:12 And none can deny it but the Transgressor beyond bounds the Sinner!

  14. 83:13 When Our Signs are rehearsed to him, he says, "Tales of the ancients!"

  15. 83:14 By no means! but on their hearts is the stain of the (ill) which they do!

  16. 83:15 Verily, from (the Light of) their Lord, that Day, will they be veiled.

  17. 83:16 Further, they will enter the Fire of Hell.

  18. 83:17 Further, it will be said to them: "This is the (reality) which ye rejected as false!

  19. 83:18 Day, verily the record of the Righteous is (preserved) in 'Illiyin.

  20. 83:19 And what will explain to thee what 'Illiyun is?

  21. 83:20 (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed,

  22. 83:21 To which bear witness those Nearest (to Allah).

  23. 83:22 Truly the Righteous will be in Bliss:

  24. 83:23 On Thrones (of Dignity) will they command a sight (of all things):

  25. 83:24 Thou wilt recognise in their faces the beaming brightness of Bliss.

  26. 83:25 Their thirst will be slaked with Pure Wine sealed:

  27. 83:26 The seal thereof will be Musk: And for this let those aspire, who have aspirations:

  28. 83:27 With it will be (given) a mixture of Tasnim:

  29. 83:28 A spring, from (the waters) whereof drink those Nearest to Allah.

  30. 83:29 Those in sin used to laugh at those who believed,

  31. 83:30 And whenever they passed by them, used to wink at each other (in mockery);

  32. 83:31 And when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting;

  33. 83:32 And whenever they saw them, they would say, "Behold! These are the people truly astray!"

  34. 83:33 But they had not been sent as keepers over them!

  35. 83:34 But on this Day the Believers will laugh at the Unbelievers:

  36. 83:35 On Thrones (of Dignity) they will command (a sight) (of all things).

  37. 83:36 Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did?
