* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَلَقَدْ صَرَّفْنَا فِي هَـٰذَا ٱلْقُرْآنِ لِلنَّاسِ مِن كُلِّ مَثَلٍ وَكَانَ ٱلإِنْسَانُ أَكْثَرَ شَيْءٍ جَدَلاً }

And verily We have dispensed We have explained for mankind in this Qur’ān an example of every kind of similitude min kulli mathalin is an adjective qualifying an omitted clause in other words ‘We have dispensed therein a similitude from every kind of similitude that they may be admonished. But man is most disputatious he is most contentious in matters of falsehood jadalan is a specification derived from al-insān ‘man’ the subject of kāna in other words the meaning is that the disputatiousness of man is what can be found in him most.
