وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمُ ٱتَّبِعُوا مَآ أَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ قَالُواْ بَلْ نَتَّبِعُ مَآ أَلْفَيْنَا عَلَيْهِ آبَآءَنَآ أَوَلَوْ كَانَ آبَاؤُهُمْ لاَ يَعْقِلُونَ شَيْئاً وَلاَ يَهْتَدُونَ
-Al-Baqarah ( البقرة )

Al Qushairi Tafsir

[2:170] And when it is said to them, 'Follow what God has revealed', they say, 'No; but we follow what we found our fathers doing'. What? Even if their fathers do not understand anything, and they were not guided?
There is no raising their eyes beyond that which is like them in form, class, kind and ancestry, for they are set on their way. Without a doubt they plunged into the fire on their path. Had they know that their ancestors had no intelligence to restrain them, nor guidance to unite them, they would have separated themselves from them as hostile and resisted them as oppositional. But the lights of insight were snatched from them and they were deprived of the proofs of certainty.
