كَٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ كَانُواْ أَشَدَّ مِنكُمْ قُوَّةً وَأَكْثَرَ أَمْوَالاً وَأَوْلاَداً فَٱسْتَمْتَعُواْ بِخَلاقِهِمْ فَاسْتَمْتَعْتُمْ بِخَلاَقِكُمْ كَمَا اسْتَمْتَعَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ بِخَلاَقِهِمْ وَخُضْتُمْ كَٱلَّذِي خَاضُوۤاْ أُوْلَـٰئِكَ حَبِطَتْ أَعْمَالُهُمْ فِي ٱلدنْيَا وَٱلآخِرَةِ وَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْخَاسِرُونَ
-At-Tawbah ( التوبة )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

You, O hypocrites, are, like those before you, who were far mightier than you, and more abundant in wealth and children. They enjoyed their share, their lot in this world. So you enjoy, O hypocrites, your share, just as those before you enjoyed their share, and you indulge [in vain talk], in falsehood and defamation of the Prophet (s), just as they indulged [in vain talk]. Those, their works have become invalid in this world and in the Hereafter; and those, they indeed are the losers.
