And by those who are present (on Friday. All deeds performed on Friday will witness in the Hereafter) and by those who are gathered (on the 9th of Dhul-Hijjah for Hajj) – Imam Shawkani.
قُتِلَ أَصۡحَٰبُ ٱلۡأُخۡدُودِ4 4
(Here is the answer of the above swearing). Cursed were the people of the Ditch (in the story of the Boy and the King in Muslim, vol.4, Hadith no.7148).
وَهُمۡ عَلَىٰ مَا يَفۡعَلُونَ بِٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ شُهُودٞ7 7

وَمَا نَقَمُواْ مِنۡهُمۡ إِلَّآ أَن يُؤۡمِنُواْ بِٱللَّهِ ٱلۡعَزِيزِ ٱلۡحَمِيدِ8 8
They were taking revenge from them (the believers) simply because they believed in Allah, the All-Mighty, the Worthy of All-Praise.
ٱلَّذِي لَهُۥ مُلۡكُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِۚ وَٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيۡءٖ شَهِيدٌ9 9
To whom belongs the Sover-eignty of the heavens and the earth! And Allah is Witness over every-thing.
إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ فَتَنُواْ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنَٰتِ ثُمَّ لَمۡ يَتُوبُواْ فَلَهُمۡ عَذَابُ جَهَنَّمَ وَلَهُمۡ عَذَابُ ٱلۡحَرِيقِ10 10
Indeed, those who torture the believing men and women, and then don’t repent (to Allah), they will have the torment of Hell, and they will have the punishment of the burning Fire.
إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ ٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتِ لَهُمۡ جَنَّٰتٞ تَجۡرِي مِن تَحۡتِهَا ٱلۡأَنۡهَٰرُۚ ذَٰلِكَ ٱلۡفَوۡزُ ٱلۡكَبِيرُ11 11
Indeed, those who believe and do good deeds, for them will be Gardens beneath which rivers flow (i.e. Paradise). That is the great success.
