فَمَن بَدَّلَهُ بَعْدَ مَا سَمِعَهُ فَإِنَّمَا إِثْمُهُ عَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ يُبَدِّلُونَهُ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ
١٨١
-Al-Baqarah ( البقرة )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Then if anyone, whether a witness or a trustee, changes it, that is, the testament, after hearing it, and knowing it, the sin, resulting from the changed testament, shall rest upon those who change it (here the explicit subject stands in place of the implicit one); surely God is Hearing, of the testator’s words, Knowing, of the deeds of the trustee, requiting [each] accordingly.
