* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَدَاوُودَ وَسُلَيْمَانَ إِذْ يَحْكُمَانِ فِي ٱلْحَرْثِ إِذْ نَفَشَتْ فِيهِ غَنَمُ ٱلْقَوْمِ وَكُنَّا لِحُكْمِهِمْ شَاهِدِينَ }

And mention David and Solomon that is mention their story Dāwūda wa-Sulaymāna is substituted by the following idh yahkumāni … when they gave judgement concerning the tillage a field of crops or a vineyard when the sheep of a certain people strayed into it that is when these sheep grazed there at night but without a shepherd because they had escaped; and We were witnesses to their judgement li-hukmihim shāhidīna here the plural person is being used in the case of a dual. David decreed to the owner of the tillage belong the head of the sheep. Solomon decreed he shall benefit from the use of their milk offspring and wool until such time as the tillage is restored to its original state at the hands of the owner of the sheep after which he the owner of the tillage should return them the sheep to him their owner.
