p65.0 STINTING WHEN WEIGHING OR MEASURING OUT GOODS
p65.1 Allah Most High says:
“Woe to stinters who take their full share when measuring goods from people but skimp when measuring or weighing out for them. Do these not believe they will be raised to a momentous day. a day when people will stand before ‘the Lord of the Worlds?” (Koran 83:1-6).
