{107:1} Have you seen the one who denies the Recompense?

I suggest,
{107:1} Have you seen whom belies the religion?

Quote:
{107:2} For that is the one who drives away the orphan

{107:2} It's the one who shuns the orphan.

Your choice of "belie" is excellent. Is "whom belies" intentional or a typo for "who belies"? It doesn't sound right.

I also like "shun," although the Arabic word conveys a bit more active meaning to me.

"Whom" is the correct grammar because it is in the accusative after "seen."
