* تفسير Kashani Tafsir

{ يَٰمَعْشَرَ ٱلْجِنِّ وَٱلإِنْسِ أَلَمْ يَأْتِكُمْ رُسُلٌ مِّنْكُمْ يَقُصُّونَ عَلَيْكُمْ آيَاتِي وَيُنذِرُونَكُمْ لِقَآءَ يَوْمِكُمْ هَـٰذَا قَالُواْ شَهِدْنَا عَلَىٰ أَنْفُسِنَا وَغَرَّتْهُمُ ٱلْحَيَاةُ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَشَهِدُواْ عَلَىٰ أَنْفُسِهِمْ أَنَّهُمْ كَانُواْ كَافِرِينَ }

['O assembly of jinn and mankind: did not] messengers come to you from among you, from among those mortals who are of your own species - and on the basis of intepretation - the [messengers] mentioned from among your intellects which are faculties from among your own speciesḍ These questions, responses and testimonies are all [spoken] by the tongue of the state and the manifestation of descriptions - as in the saying: 'The wall said to the nail, “Why do you split meḍ”, to which the nail replied, “Ask the one who is hammering me!”' - and as the witnessing of hands and legs in the forms that correspond to the configurations of their deeds and by which they are chastised.
