What is the opinion of the learned scholars (muftis) about the situation in which two parties agrees to fulfil a contract of buying and selling. Later one party refuses to fulfill his part of the contract and also provides two false witnesses against the contract. The two witnesses represents false testimony. What is the compensation due on the witnesses who represented the false testimony?

                                 In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

                                     As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa -rahmatullāhi wa -barakātuh.

Lying and presenting false testimony are considered big sins therefore the witnesses should repent and seek forgiveness from Allah swt abundantly.

"(الیمین باللہ ثلاثۃ انواع) غموس:وھو الحلف علی اثبات شیء او نفیہ فی الماضی،او الحال یتعمد الکذب فیہ ،فھذہ الیمین یأثم فیھا صاحبھا،وعلیہ فیھا الاستغفار والتوبۃ دون الکفارۃ۔"                                                                                                                                                            (الھندیۃ: 2/52)

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
