وَإِلَىٰ مَدْيَنَ أَخَاهُمْ شُعَيْباً قَالَ يٰقَوْمِ ٱعْبُدُواْ ٱللَّهَ مَا لَكُمْ مِّنْ إِلَـٰهٍ غَيْرُهُ وَلاَ تَنقُصُواْ ٱلْمِكْيَالَ وَٱلْمِيزَانَ إِنِّيۤ أَرَاكُمْ بِخَيْرٍ وَإِنِّيۤ أَخَافُ عَلَيْكُمْ عَذَابَ يَوْمٍ مُّحِيطٍ
-Hûd ( هود )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And, We sent, to Midian their brother Shu‘ayb. He said, ‘O my people, worship God!, affirm His Oneness. You have no god other than He. And diminish not the measure or the weight. I see you in prosperity, [enjoying] a grace which precludes any need for stinting [people]; and I fear for you, should you not believe, the chastisement of a besetting day, [besetting] you, destroying you (the attribution of this term [‘besetting’] to ‘a day’ [as opposed to ‘the chastisement’] is figurative, for it [the chastisement] will take place thereupon).
