The reason for descending the verse

Al-Suddi said, “When the Messenger of Allah arrived at Madinah, there was a man called Abu Juhaynah. This man had two scales; he used one scale when he sold things to people and the other when he bought from them. And so Allah (exalted is He) revealed this verse.”(Al-Wahidi,Reasons of Revelation)
