Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(And Allah brought you forth from the wombs of your mothers knowing nothing) not knowing different kinds of things; it is also said that this means: not knowing anything, (and gave you hearing) with which you hear goodness (and sight) with which you see goodness (and hearts) with which you perceive goodness (that haply ye might give thanks) so that you give thanks to Allah for his blessings and believe in Him.
