Shu’aib: One and the Same Message
[11:84] To Midyan we sent their brother Shu’aib. He said, “O my people, worship GOD; you have no other god beside Him. Do not cheat when you measure or weigh. I see that you are prosperous, and I fear for you the retribution of an overwhelming day.
[11:85] “O my people, you shall give full measure and full weight, equitably. Do not cheat the people out of their rights, and do not roam the earth corruptingly.
[11:86] “Whatever GOD provides for you, no matter how small, is far better for you, if you are really believers. I am not a guardian over you.”
[11:87] They said, “O Shu’aib, does your religion dictate upon you that we must abandon our parents’ religion, or running our businesses in any manner we choose? Surely, you are known for being clement, wise.”
[11:88] He said, “O my people, what if I have solid proof from my Lord; what if He has provided me with a great blessing? It is not my wish to commit what I enjoin you from. I only wish to correct as many wrongs as I can. My guidance depends totally on GOD; I have put my trust in Him. To Him I have totally submitted.
[11:89] “And, O my people, do not be provoked by your opposition to me into incurring the same disasters as the people of Noah, or the people of Hûd, or the people of Sãleh; and the people of Lot are not too far from you.
[11:90] “You shall implore your Lord for forgiveness, then repent to Him. My Lord is Most Merciful, Kind.”
[11:91] They said, “O Shu’aib, we do not comprehend many of the things you are telling us, and we see that you are powerless among us. If it were not for your tribe, we would have stoned you. You have no value for us.”
[11:92] He said, “O my people, does my tribe command a greater respect than GOD? Is this why you have been heedless of Him? My Lord is fully aware of everything you do.
[11:93] “O my people, go on doing what you wish, and so will I. You will certainly find out which of us will incur shameful retribution; you will find out who the liar is. Just wait in anticipation, and I will wait in anticipation along with you.”
[11:94] When our judgment came, we saved Shu’aib and those who believed with him, by mercy from us. As for the evil ones, they were struck by a disaster that left them dead in their homes.
[11:95] It was as though they never existed. Thus, Midyan perished, just like Thamûd had perished before that.
[26:176] The People of the Woods disbelieved the messengers. [26:177] Shu’aib said to them, “Would you not be righteous? [26:178] “I am an honest messenger to you. [26:179] “You shall reverence GOD, and obey me. [26:180] “I do not ask you for any wage; my wage comes only from the Lord of the universe. [26:181] “You shall give full measure when you trade; do not cheat. [26:182] “You shall weigh with an equitable scale. [26:183] “Do not cheat the people out of their rights, and do not roam the earth corruptingly. [26:184] “Reverence the One who created you and the previous generations.” [26:185] They said, “You are bewitched. [26:186] “You are no more than a human being like us. In fact, we think you are a liar. [26:187] “Let masses from the sky fall on us, if you are truthful.” [26:188] He said, “My Lord is the One who knows everything you do.” [26:189] They disbelieved him and, consequently, they incurred the retribution of the Day of the Canopy. It was the retribution of an awesome day. [26:190] This should be a lesson, but most people are not believers. [26:191] Most assuredly, your Lord is the Almighty, Most Merciful.
[83:1] Woe to the cheaters. [83:2] Who demand full measure when receiving from the people. [83:3] But when giving them the measures or weights, they cheat. [83:4] Do they not know that they will be resurrected?
[11:68] It was as if they never lived there. Indeed, Thamûd have rejected their Lord. Absolutely, Thamûd have incurred their annihilation.
[25:57] Say, “I do not ask you for any money. All I seek is to help you find the right path to your Lord, if this is what you choose.”
Science of Cheating
1. I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. 2. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High. 3. My enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you. 4. For you have upheld my right and my cause, sitting enthroned as the righteous judge. 5. You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked; you have blotted out their name for ever and ever. 6. Endless ruin has overtaken my enemies, you have uprooted their cities; even the memory of them has perished.
