Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(And the earth shineth with the light of her Lord) it is also said: with the justice of her Lord, (and the Book is set up) on the right and left hands of people; the book referred to here is the register of the Guardian angels, (and the Prophets) who were not messengers (and the witnesses) i.e. the messengers (are brought) it is also said that this means: and the prophets, messengers and witnesses-the witnesses of the messengers against their own folk-are brought, (and it is judged between them) and the prophets (with truth) with justice, (and they are not wronged) their good deeds will not be diminished nor will their evil deeds be increased.
