One part of the Quran says that they will receive them behind their back while another part says that they will receive them on their left hand.
Surah 84:10. But he who is given his Record behind his back,-
11. Soon will he cry for perdition,
12. And he will enter a Blazing Fire.
Surah 69:25. And he that will be given his Record in his left hand, will say: “Ah! Would that my Record had not been given to me!
26. “And that I had never realised how my account (stood)!
27. “Ah! Would that (Death) had made an end of me!
Muslim response : It is handed to the evil doers in their left hands behind their backs. For example, in Sahih Al-Bukhari, in the chapter of “Tafseer Al-Qur’an,” regarding Al-Inshiqaq(84):10: “But whosoever is given his book in his left hand..” Al-Bukhari narrates that Mujahid explained “..in his left behind his back” The are also other hadeeths of the prophet in this regard such as the one narrated by the prophet’s wife Aisha (pbut) in Musnad Ahmad, chapter of “Al-Sunnah.”
