وَاتَّقُوا فِتْنَةً لَّا تُصِيبَنَّ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا مِنكُمْ خَاصَّةً ۖ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ
And fear a trial which will not strike those who have wronged among you exclusively, and know that Allah is severe in penalty.
আর তোমরা এমন ফাসাদ থেকে বেঁচে থাক যা বিশেষতঃ শুধু তাদের উপর পতিত হবে না যারা তোমাদের মধ্যে জালেম এবং জেনে রেখ যে, আল্লাহর আযাব অত্যন্ত কঠোর।
Tafsir of the Aya from In the Sahde of Quran
by Sayyid Qutb:

mention the following Hadith in his tafsir of this Ayah:
Imam Ahmad recorded that Abu Ar-Riqad said, “I heard Hudhayfah saying, ` A person used to utter one word during the time of the Messenger of Allah and become a hypocrite on account of it. I now hear such words from one of you four times in the same sitting. Surely, you will enjoin good, forbid evil and encourage each other to do good or Allah will surround you all with torment, or make the wicked among you become your leaders. The righteous among you will then supplicate, but their supplication will not be accepted.”
