In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Woe to those who defraud,[1] who when, they take by measure from men, take the full measure,[2] but when they give by measure or by weight to others, they give less than due.[3] Do they not think that they will be raised to life again[4] on a Mighty Day,[5] a Day when all mankind will stand before the Rabb of the worlds?[6] Indeed not! The record of the wicked is in Sijjeen (prison register),[7] what will explain to you, what the Sijjeen is?[8] This is a written book of hell.[9] Woe on that Day to the disbelievers,[10] who deny the Day of Judgment![11] None denies it except the sinful transgressor.[12] Who, when Our revelations are recited to him, says: “These are the tales of the ancient peoples."[13] Of course not! In fact their misdeeds have caused a covering on their hearts.[14] Indeed on that Day, they shall be debarred from the vision of their Rabb.[15] Then they shall be made to enter the hell,[16] and told: “This is what you used to deny."[17] But, surely the record of the righteous is in `Illiyeen (register of exalted ones),[18] and what will explain to you, what the `Illiyeen is?[19] This is a written book,[20] attested by those who are nearest to Allah (angels).[21] Surely the righteous will be in bliss,[22] reclining on soft couches, looking all around,[23] and you will recognize in their faces the brightness of bliss.[24] Their thirst will be quenched with the choicest sealed wine,[25] and the seal will be of musk. Those who wish to excel above others, let them endeavor to excel in this.[26] That wine shall have a mixture of Tasnïm,[27] a spring, at which those nearest to Allah will drink.[28]


Defrauders will be called to account and punished while the righteous will be rewarded with soft couches, choicest wines and special spring water

During their life on earth, the culprits used to mock at the believers,[29] and wink at one another as they passed them by.[30] When they returned to their own people they returned jesting.[31] And when they saw the believers, they used to say: “These are the people who have surely gone astray,”[32] although they had not been sent as guardians over them.[33] On that Day, the believers shall be laughing at the unbelievers,[34] as they recline on couches and gaze at them:[35] “Have not the unbelievers been fully rewarded for what they used to do?”[36]


Today the disbelievers laugh at the believers , a Day will come when they will be laughed at

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* Defrauders will be called to account and punished while the righ teous will be rewarded with soft couches, the choicest wine and special spring water.
* Today disbelievers laugh at the believers , a Day will come when they themselves will be laughed at.

The theme of this Sürah is also the Hereafter. In the first six verses, the people are taken to task for the evil practice prevalent in their commercial dealings. When they received their due from others, they demanded that it be given in full, but when they had to measure or weigh for others, they would give less than what was due. Taking this one evil as an example out of countless evils prevalent in society, it is said that it is an inevitable result of the heedlessness of the Hereafter. Unless the people realized that one Day they would have to appear before God and account for each single act they performed in the world, it was not possible that they would adopt piety and righteousness in their daily affairs. Even if a person might practise honesty in some of his less important dealings in view of “honesty is the best policy”, he would never practise honesty on occasions when dishonesty would seem to be “the best policy”. Man can develop a true and enduring honest nature only when he fears God and sincerely believes in the Hereafter, for then he would regard honesty not merely as “a policy” but as “a duty” and obligation, and his being consistent in it, would not be dependent on its being useful or useless in the world.

In conclusion, the believers are consoled, and the disbelievers warned that the people who are disgracing and humiliating the believers today, are culprits who, on the Resurrection Day will meet with a most evil end in consequence of their conduct, and the believers will feel comforted when they will see their fate.
