يَعْرِفُونَ نِعْمَتَ ٱللَّهِ ثُمَّ يُنكِرُونَهَا وَأَكْثَرُهُمُ ٱلْكَافِرُونَ

Kashani Tafsir

They recognise God's grace, that is to say, the guidance of the Prophet or his presence, in light of what we have mentioned, namely, that every prophet is sent with a perfection that corresponds to the preparednesses of his community and he enjoys a genus-correspondence with them in terms of his primordial nature so that they are able to recognise him by the faculty of their primordial nature; and they then deny it, because of their obduracy and their falling into sin as a result of the mastery [over them] of the attributes of their souls such as arrogance, haughtiness, love of power, or because of their disbelief and their being veiled from the light of primordial nature through evil dark configurations and the alteration of [their] first preparedness; and most of them are ingrates, in denying that [grace] by virtue of the fact that their primordial natures have borne witness to the truth thereof.
