83-Surah Al-Mutaffifin (Those Who Deal in Fraud) 1
    Woe to those who give less [than due],
    وَيْلٌ لِّلْمُطَفِّفِينَ

    Quran's Tafhim ( explanation)

    *1) In the original the word mutaffifin has been used, which is derived from tatfif, a word used for an inferior and base thing in Arabic. Terminologically, tatfif is used for giving short weight and short measure fraudulently, for the person who acts thus while measuring or weighing, does not defraud another by any substantial amount, but skimps small amounts from what is due to every customer cleverly, and the poor customer dces not know of what and of how much he is being deprived by the seller.
