Enormities: Stinting When Weighing Or Measuring Out Goods

This is another article in the chapter Enormities from the classical manual on Sharia called Reliance of the Traveller. The articles are posted one by one in the order they are given in the book.

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).
p65.2 This is a type of theft, a breach of faith, and consuming others’ property through falsehood.
