Tafsir

The likeness, the description, of the two parties, the disbelievers and the believers, is as the blind and the deaf, this being the likeness of the disbeliever, and the one who sees and the one who hears, this being the likeness of the believer, are they equal in likeness? No! Will you not then remember? (tadhakkaroon: the original taa' [of tatadhakkaroon] has been assimilated with the dhaal) [will you not then] be admonished?
