Surah At-Tatfif: Defrauding
Revealed at Makkah
With the name of Allah, most Gracious, most Rewarding
WOE be to the defrauders—
who, when they take measure from people, they demand full measure,
but when they give measure to them or weigh out for them, they give less.
Do they not think— these— that they will surely be raised again,
on a terrible Day:
the Day whereon mankind will stand up before the Rabb of all the worlds?
No! Surely the record of the wicked will indeed be in Sijjin.
And what will make you know what the Prison is?
A written Register.
Woe be on that Day to those who belie,—
who belie the Day of Judgment.
And no one rejects it except every immoderate sinner,
when Our Messages are recited to him, he says: “Stories of the ancients.”
No! rather, what they had been earning has rusted upon their hearts.
No! certainly they will that Day indeed be veiled from their Rabb.
And then they will of course be roasted in the fierce Fire.
Then it will be said: “This is that about which you used to belie.”
No! surely the record of the pious will be in the Zenith.
And what will make you know what the Zenith is?
A written Register,—
