- The Tafsirs - التفاسير

* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ ٱنظُرْ كَيْفَ ضَرَبُواْ لَكَ ٱلأَمْثَالَ فَضَلُّواْ فَلاَ يَسْتَطِيعُونَ سَبِيلاً }

(See how they coin similitudes for thee) see how they explain things to you and call you names: magician, fortune teller, liar, poet, and madman; it is also said that this means: see how they liken you to a bewitched person, (so that they are all astray) their scheming went amiss and they fell in error (and cannot find a road) they cannot find a way out of what they said about you, nor do they have any proof about what they say about you!
