Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(Or deemest thou) O Muhammad (that most of them hear) the Truth (or understand) such Truth when they listen to your words? (They are) in relation to understanding the Truth (but as the cattle) which know nothing but eating and drinking; they are with regard to the Truth like this, (nay, but they are farther astray) from proof and Religion! Because the cattle have no ability to understand proofs.
