Measurement and Weight:

Islam has attached great importance to weight and measurement in commercial transactions. The Holy Quraan lays special stress: “Fulfill your weight and measure with just balance; this is good and better in interpretation.” (17:35)

The Holy Quraan warns us of the severe punishment that is incurred by violation of the principles. The people of the Prophet Shu’aib were destroyed for this very reason. The Holy Quraan says: “Woe to the defaulters who, when they measure from people, take it with full measure, and when they measure out to them or weigh out for them, decrease. Do not these think that they shall be raised up for a great day?” (83:1-4)
