Sura 17
Aya 27
إِنَّ المُبَذِّرينَ كانوا إِخوانَ الشَّياطينِ ۖ وَكانَ الشَّيطانُ لِرَبِّهِ كَفورًا

Yusuf Ali

Verily spendthrifts are brothers of the Evil Ones; and the Evil One is to his Lord (himself) ungrateful.1
  • Spendthrifts are not merely fools. They are of the same family as the Evil Ones. And the chief of the Evil Ones (notice the transition from the plural to the singular)- Satan himself-fell by his ingratitude to God. So those who misuse or squander God’s gifts are also ungrateful to God.
