Giving a reduced measure

A: Allah (Exalted be He) prohibits us from tampering with weights and measures to either increase or decrease. Allah (Exalted be He) states: Woe to Al-Mutaffifûn (those who give less in measure and weight). Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, demand full measure, And when they have to give by measure or weight to (other) men, give less than due. Do they not think that they will be resurrected (for reckoning), On a Great Day? The Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the ‘Alamîn (mankind, jinn and all that exists)? Therefore, you must weigh accurately and comply with the Command of Allah (Exalted be He). Do not obey those who order you to tamper with the scales, even if they dismiss you. Whoever abandons something for the Sake of Allah (Exalted be He), He will recompense him with something better. (Part No. 3; Page No. 166) You should advise those who order you to do this and remind them of Allah (Exalted be He); perhaps through your advice Allah guides them.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
