ٱلَّذِينَ يَلۡمِزُونَ ٱلۡمُطَّوِّعِينَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ فِى ٱلصَّدَقَٰتِ وَٱلَّذِينَ لَا يَجِدُونَ إِلَّا جُهۡدَهُمۡ فَيَسۡخَرُونَ مِنۡهُمۡ ۙ سَخِرَ ٱللَّهُ مِنۡهُمۡ وَلَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ
Those who slander such of the believers as give themselves freely to (deeds of) charity, as well as such as can find nothing to give except the fruits of their labour,- and throw ridicule on them,- Allah will throw back their ridicule on them: and they shall have a grievous penalty.<br/>
When the verse concerning 'voluntary alms' [Q. 9:75] was revealed, a man came and gave a large amount as voluntary alms, so the hypocrites said, 'He is [merely] showing off!' Another man then came and gave a [moderate] measure [of food], and so they said, 'God has no need of this man's charity!' The following was then revealed: Those who (alladheena is the subject) find fault with, defame, the believers who offer alms voluntarily, performing supererogation, and such as find nothing [to offer] but their endeavours, [nothing but] what they are capable of, and offer it; and deride them (and the predicate [of the mentioned subject] is [the following]) - God [Himself] derides them, He has requited them for their derision, and theirs will be a painful chastisement.
