سورة المطففين

83. Al-Mutaffifin


Total verses: 36
Revealed in: Mecca

- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)

The surah that opens with a dire divine warning of a debasing punishment awaiting in the Hereafter for those who practice cheating as a norm in commerce, and whom is calls The Defrauders because they insist on receiving a full amount in return for the partial measure that they themselves give. It takes its name from verse 1, which condemns the tradesmen who cheat customers by using short weights and measures (muṭaffifūn). It appears that the practice of cheating have been prevalent in Mecca, and is strongly condemned here and elsewhere in the Quran (e.g. 11:84 ff.; 7:85).
The surah is also known as: The Cheats, The Dealing in Fraud, The Defrauders, The Stinters, The Unjust, Those who Give Short Measure.
