وَيْلٌ لِلْمُطَفِّفِينَ
WOE UNTO THOSE who give short measure: (1)
الَّذِينَ إِذَا اكْتَالُوا عَلَى النَّاسِ يَسْتَوْفُونَ
those who, when they are to receive their due from [other] people, demand that it be given in full – (2)
وَإِذَا كَالُوهُمْ أَوْ وَزَنُوهُمْ يُخْسِرُونَ
but when they have to measure or weigh whatever they owe to others, give less than what is due! (3)
أَلَا يَظُنُّ أُولَٰئِكَ أَنَّهُمْ مَبْعُوثُونَ
Do they not know that they are bound to be raised from the dead (4)
لِيَوْمٍ عَظِيمٍ
[and called to account] on an awesome Day – (5)
يَوْمَ يَقُومُ النَّاسُ لِرَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ
the Day when all men shall stand before the Sustainer of all the worlds? (6)
كَلَّا إِنَّ كِتَابَ الْفُجَّارِ لَفِي سِجِّينٍ
NAY, VERILY, the record of the wicked is indeed [set down] in a mode inescapable! (7)
وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا سِجِّينٌ
And what could make thee conceive what that mode inescapable will be? (8)
كِتَابٌ مَرْقُومٌ
A record [indelibly] inscribed! (9)
وَيْلٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ لِلْمُكَذِّبِينَ
Woe on that Day unto those who give the lie to the truth – (10)
