اُنْظُرْ كَيْفَ ضَرَبُوْا لَكَ الْاَمْثَالَ فَضَلُّوْا فَلَا يَسْتَطِيْعُوْنَ سَبِيْلًا۝۹ۧ
Onthur kayfa daraboo laka alamthala fadalloo fala yastateeAAoona sabeelan


Ahmed Ali

Just see what comparisons they bring up for you! They are lost and cannot find the way.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (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!

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : see how they strike similitudes for you, of [the fact that the prophet is] a person bewitched and one in need of something to expend [from] and of an angel to help him carry out the task [of delivering the message], so that they go astray, thereby from guidance, and are unable to find a way, a means thereto [to guidance].
